Serre Chevalier Ski Holidays Skiing & Snowboarding Vacations in the Guisane Valley
Serre Chevalier family ski holidays - a collection of 13 villages running along the 15km Gruisane valley onroute to Briancon, France's highest alpine town. WIth 250kms of pistes, Serre Chevalier is one of the largest linked ski areas in the Alps and yet relatively unheard of as a mainstream ski holiday destination. This makes Serre Chevalier a rare find with uncrowded slopes, superb facilities and a very welcoming atmosphere.
Off the slopes, you will experience apres-ski ranging from traditional bars and restaurants serving up wonderful local cuisine to lively pubs and clubs in Villeneuve.

Serre Chevalier Accommodation
Typical of the region, the accommodation is largely ski chalets plus some modern new build developments that blend in perfectly with the original dwellings. The main places to stay are Briancon, Chantemerle, Villeneuve and Le Monêtier les Bains. Without the inflated prices associated with some of the larger resorts, renting accommodation in one of these pretty villages is great value even during the peak holiday periods.
Our view on skiing in Serre Chevalier
Serre Chevalier ski holidays are not on the radar yet largely because many skiers tend to head for the large ski carousels year after year such as the Portes du Soleil or Grand Massif.
However, for those in the know, the skiing in Serre Chevalier is fantastic with great pistes and zero queues plus the authentic villages in the valley offer a unique gastronomic experience. The other plus factor is that everything from the lift passes to the apres-ski and accommodation costs a fraction of the price of the mass tourism resorts.
