Widely known for its good value, extensive ski area, excellent off piste and tree skiing, the resort of Serre Chevalier has three main villages: Monêtier les Bains, Villeneuve and Chantemerle, connecting wih Briancon. Spread over 8 km, they are well linked by a regular bus service which enables skiers to choose where they would like to finish their day.One of the few resorts actually given 10/10 from the "Wheretoskiandsnowboard guide".

Villeneuve is at the centre of the Serre Chevalier valley, making it the perfect base to explore the area. Although it is only a short walk from the chalet to the lifts there is a free shuttle bus connecting the chalet to the lifts and village centre, as well as other villages of the resort. The largest of these is Chantmerle which has many restaurants, shops and lively après ski. The picturesque village of Monetier is famed for its natural warm thermal baths.

Villeneuve allows easy access to Briancon, at the heart of which is a beautifully preserved fortified medieval city. Briancon, Europe`s highest city, has plenty to offer both skiers and non-skiers alike, including regular markets, wonderful sightseeing and a feared Ice Hockey team. An added advantage is that your local ski pass includes a day at each of the resorts of Montgenevre, Alpe D`Huez and Les Deux Alpes. We can also arrange days out to these resorts

Other Facilities

A variety of bars, shops and restaurants are available, along with a swimming pool, fitness centre, hot spring centre “Les Grands Bains”, cinema, games hall, ice driving school and ice rink. The medieval fortress town of Briançon with its narrow, cobbled streets and good selection of restaurants is worth a visit.

Facilities for Children

There are 3 Kindergartens taking children from 6 months old. For children not wanting to ski or wanting half day care after their lessons there are 2 children’s clubs taking children from 4/5 – 12 years old.
