Skiing is one of the moments that make your year more beautiful. Our 10 recommendations will help you make the most of them.

1- To each his own Serre Chevalier

3 villages and 1 town in the same ski resort

The Serre Chevalier valley is made up of 4 communes. 4 times more chances to spend an unforgettable stay in the snow with family or friends!

Let's start with a specificity made in Serre Chevalier: a ski area leaning against a town of more than 10 000 inhabitants. Briançon is a City of Art and History, whose Vauban fortifications are classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. Staying in Briançon means combining great skiing and culture. A unique example in France!

The village of Saint Chaffrey Chantemerle is divided between adret and envers, between traditional village and ski resort at the foot of the slopes. A village where, as its name indicates, the blackbirds sing in the summer.

A little further towards the Lautaret pass, La Salle-les-Alpes is both an ancestral village, part of the fief of the Dauphin since the 11th century, and a ski resort.

Occupying the high valley of the Guisane, the village of Monêtier-les-Bains, today a famous ski resort, has been known since Roman times for its hot springs with beneficial properties. The Grands Bains du Monêtier, a 4,500 m2 thermoludic center combining natural hot water and well-being, await you.
