Serre Chevalier lies in the Southern French Alps, close to the Italian border. The ski area rises above four separate resorts, which are set several kilometres apart.
The villages of Chantemerle, Villeneuve and Monetier and also the town of Briançon ( the highest in Europe), all offer direct access to this vast interconnecting ski area.
Skiing and Snowboarding
Most of the skiing is in 2 large bowls, one above Villeneuve and the other above Chantmerle.
Villeneuve's skiing reaches 2659m and offers excellent green runs for beginners in the area above our Hotel Fréjus, whilst the terrain at Chantemerle is more challenging.
The two areas link at many points, and intermediates who can cope with a red run can join the more advanced skiing at Monetier. lift passes cover the whole Grand Serre Chevalier area, plus a free ski bus between the villages.
Although Serre Chevalier isnt the most lively resort in the French Alps it is still worth visiting. The old town of Vileneuve is gorgeous to walk around, whist the historic town of Briancon is only 20 minuites away where you can find a selection of shops, bars and historic buildings.
For an alternative activity the thermal baths in Monetier are fantastic to visit and relax. The lovely warm thermal spring bath will help to soothe all your aching limbs from your days of skiing.
If your looking for a lively evenining you can always rely on the Grotte and LB bar for some great themed nights. The LB bar is usually the bar of choice due to the low prices.
