Serre Chevalier ski holidays Skiing & snowboarding holidays 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.

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.
