Property DescriptionThe Apartment.... Situated on the second floor of this historic building in the heart of the Old Town is this charming 1 bedroom apartment. It is accessed from a balcony that overlooks the courtyard and has most of the original features. Through the large wooden door we enter the main living room / kitchen which has original wooden floor boards and shutters. There is a basic kitchen but room enough for a dining table and sofa. The separate w.c. is adjacent to this room. The next room is the double bedroom with en suite shower room. There is a door that opens out on the courtyard balcony. The bedroom also has 2 inbuilt cupboards. This property is authentic and original and is typical of the Old Town classic architecture, dating back over 300 years. The Area.... Briancon is the highest town in France and is located just 15 kms from the Italian border in the Southern French Alps. It is part of the Serre Chevalier Ski Domain which is one of the largest "stand alone" ski resorts in the country. The climate here is considered "provencal" with incredible sunshine over the whole of the year. The town itself provides "normal" living for its 13.000 inhabitants and is also a popular tourist destination throughout the year, not only for the skiing but also countless sports including kayaking, mountaineering, road cycling and mountain biking. The town has a colourful history being surrounded by alpine fortifications that once protected the famous City Vauban with its cobbled streets and sheer ramparts. It is true to say that there is no other ski resort in the world that has history like this on it's doorstep. The nearest airport is beside Turin in Italy which is just 120 km ( 1 hr 20 ) away.
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.
