Spacious apartment within walls of historic Vauban City.
The Apartment … Right in the heart of Briancon’s Old Town is this lovely 1 bedroom character property. It is on the first floor of a 300 year old building which is directly in front of the Tourist Office which was once the seat of the Knights Templar in this region. The apartment has a large kitchen with a central island which is decorated in a warm asiatic style. To the left of the kitchen is a large bathroom with bathtub and a separate W.C. There are 2 more rooms which inter connect with period wood/glass sliding doors. These rooms have original wooden floors and panelled cupboards. Certain aspects of this property could be modernised but it is a fantastic price for such a great space in such a historic setting.
The Area… The Old Town of Briancon is now on the UNESCO World Heritage list. This recognition has helped ensure that it’s ramparts and public areas are well maintained and have helped put the walled city on the map. It is now a popular tourist destination which buzzes with life through most of the year. The main street, The Gargouille runs through the center of the Town and is lined with restaurants and bars as well as boutiques and gift shops. In summer there is a 3 day Medieval Festival where all of the locals dress up and play the roles of characters of the era. There are Lords and Ladies, entertainers, tradesmen and even lepers !!! There are very few places in the world where such history and culture are found on the doorstep of a ski domain offering over 250 kms of ski piste. This area is a true gem.
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.
