Serre Chevalier Accommodation
Most accommodation in Villeneuve, Chantemerle and Monetier les Bains is within 5 to 10 minutes’ walk (or a 2 minute bus-ride) of the nearest lift and some is actually slopeside, or only a few yards away. Briancon has an atmospheric ‘old town’ quarter as well as more modern buildings near the Prorel lift.
Hotels in Serre Chevalier
Serre Chevalier 4-star luxury hotels
There’s nothing flashy about the Hôtel Restaurant Le Monêtier but it consistently gets superb reviews from previous guests. It can’t match the nearby L’Auberge du Choucas (also in Monetier) for looks and history however, because the Auberge is in a rather grand 17th-century house, complete with vaulted ceilings, traditional fireplace and 300-year-old dining room. The Roc Noir Spa Hotel and Le Grand Aigle Hotel & Spa in Villeneuve are closer to the lifts and slopes, and have more spa facilities (the Roc Noir even has a swimming pool). In Chantemerle the Grand Hôtel & Spa NUXE is located virtually on the slopes and it too has a spa facilities. If you want a more urban vibe, the Soleil Vacances Parc Hôtel Résidence in Briancon is not very pretty to look at, but it has an indoor pool, comfortable rooms and is only about 300m from the Prorel lift. The Club Med complex is also worth considering for families that want an all-inclusive deal – details in the separate section near the bottom of the page.
Serre Chevalier 3-star mid-range hotels
There are several good 3 star hotels and competition is fierce. Among the most highly rated by previous guests are the Hôtel de la Chaussée in Briancon (within 400m/ 5 mins walk of the Prorel lift) and the Hotel Mont Thabor in Villeneuve (within 250m / 3 mins walk of the Aravet ski lift.)
Serre Chevalier 2 star hotels and other budget hotels and guesthouses
Serre Chevalier is famous for the quality of its small, family-run hotels. Good ones in Briançon include the Auberge de la Paix in the atmmospheric old town (but it’s a long walk to the ski lift). The Edeleweiss is slightly more convenient for skiers, but if location is all important, the Hotel Mont-Brison beats everything: also in Briancon, it is about 100m from the Prorel ski lift and about the same distance to the town centre, and also within walking distance from the train station. At the other end of the ski area in Monetier, the The Hôtel Résidence Les Colchiques has good-sized family-rooms/apartments and a good value restaurant.
Self-catered apartments and chalets in Serre Chevalier
In Chantemerle, the Lagrange Vacances Le Hameau du Rocher Blanc residence has 4 star ApartHotel apartments about 200m from the ski lifts. There is also a sauna/hamman and heated swimming pool. Nearby, the Skissim Premium – Résidence Le Hameau du Rocher Blanc by Locatour offers 4-star accommodation with one free breakfast per person typically included in the price. Guests have access to an indoor heated pool and a wellness area. There are less luxurious (but still comfy) apartments in all the villages and Briancon.
For a large group who want an entire chalet, the Chalet Les Clarines near Monetier is quite something. It has 6 bedroom but can fit up to 15 people at a squeeze and comes complete with its own private indoor swimming pool.
