The Property… It is situated on the southern facing aspect of the “ Old Town’s “ ramparts which over look the rest of Briancon and the whole of the “ Serre Chevalier Valley”. This building has been used as a doctors residence, a restaurant and as a convalescence home and is now waiting for it’s next chapter to be written. The location of the building in the Old Town is exceptional, with uninterrupted views of the ski pistes and surrounding mountains and forests.
There are 5 floors, not including the loft which could easily be converted in to another apartment , as well as 2 levels of cellars. There are 3 large south facing balconies and the ground floor is large enough to accommodate 2 vehicles should the new owner wish to make a garage out of the current space. The central stair case spirals up through the heart of the building and is a beautiful original feature of this historic building which is at least 200 years old. Plans available on request.
The Area... The Old Town of Briancon is perched on a rock plateau over looking the rest of the town and has been fortified over hundreds of years making it a strategic stronghold of huge military importance. These days are now passed but the history and beauty of the town and its surrounding fortifications remain, so much so that UNESCO have added it to their World Heritage list and are helping to restore some of the dilapidated parts of the forts so that no more degradation occurs. The Old Town itself has a lot of residential property within its ramparts as well as a thriving tourist trade which is developing year on year. This is no wonder, as know where else in the Alps can you find such amazing history and culture so close to a world class ski domain. This area is definitely on the move, with huge investment projects taking place attracting business and tourism like never before.
Serre Chevalier Ski Area
This “jewel in the crown” is one of the best kept secrets in the southern alps. Here the high tree line coupled with amazing off piste make it an all-round ski paradise. Unlike many other mountain resorts, The Serre Chevalier Valley is made up of many villages and hamlets as well as the town of Briancon, the highest town in France.
Monetier Les Bains, the highest of the villages ,has a typical alpine atmosphere as well as having the beautiful open air spa baths. Here you can relax after a hard days ski and enjoy the magnificent views of the hanging glacier and snow capped peaks.
Serre Chevalier isn't a purpose built resort and as such is an ideal place to consider having an alpine home with all of the facilities associated with normal living – transport, education and shops. At the same time this amazing resort is only a few kms away from hidden valleys, high mountain pastures and the vast Ecrin national park.
Transport to Serre Chevalier is much easier than before with regular flights to both Grenoble and Turin airports.
