In the heart
of the giants
Ski area open non-stop from 09 December
Briançon stands out for its picturesque town and its fortifications, which are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, but it is also stands out for the fact that, almost unique in Europe, this town of art and history is also a ski resort.
A real experience centre, with a snow front at the foot of the Luc Alphand piste, the anemic terraces and the hot chocolates and mulled wines that smoke.
The heart of the Valley, the field of possibilities at an altitude of 1420 metres! In Villeneuve, you can enjoy a break combining tradition and modernity.
A mountain territory! A place where you can find authenticity, on the edge of the Guisane valley, under the Lautaret and Galibier passes, the great Roman commune of Monêtier-les-Bains.
Serre Chevalier Vallée Briançon, a destination like no other: the only example in France of a ski resort backing onto a town of more than 10,000 inhabitants, offering an exceptional variety of activities associated with a unique heritage, spectacular and preserved landscapes, in a privileged climate.
Where does the name Serre Chevalier come from?
A valley as steeped in history as the Guisane did not need to ask a designer to draw a symbol for its resort. It is thanks to the local heritage that the resort has been able to unite its villages behind the banner of the crowned eagle, which appears on the coat of arms of the Borel family of the hamlet of Le Bez. As for the name of Serre Chevalier, it comes from : "Serre" which means a hillock (in patois a small mountain) and "chevalier" a ravine dug by a torrent.
Serre Chevalier Vallée Briançon is a valley with one town and three villages.
Serre Chevalier Vallée Briançon is located in the Hautes Alpes department, in the Provence Alpes Côte d'Azur region. The department of the Hautes Alpes is, with the Alpes de Haute-Provence, Savoie and Haute-Savoie, one of the only departments in the Alpine chain that has no part of its territory outside the mountains. It is one of the highest departments in the Alps.
