Ski holidays in Serre Chevalier

Serre Chevalier is actually a group of 13 villages stretching along a valley in the southern French Alps. We offer a range of chalets, apartments and hotels in the resort.

Serre Chevalier is located in the Southern French Alps and is a jewel of a ski area. Appreciated by many including the Editors of Where to Ski & Snowboard (who rate Serre Chevalier as one of their favourite places), the skiing in Serre Chevalier is a delight, a challenge and a pleasure.

With the increasing appreciation of Serre Chevalier as a ski area - there has been additional flight routes into Turin and Grenoble which offer the best flight options. It is also possible to take the train to Briancon - one of the Serre Che villages or the day train to Oulx.

Skiing in Serre Chevalier

One of our all-time favourite ski area for the Directors at Zenith, Serre Chevalier is a gem of a resort although it remains less well known on the British market than it should.

The ski resort of Serre Chevalier vallee

If you arrive from Grenoble over the Col du Lauteret the first village is Monetier Les Bains – which, as the name suggests, is a spa village. The final town at the far end is Briançon which, at 1,200m above sea level is the highest town in Europe and boasts more than 300 days sunshine a year. All the villages are linked by one ski area – the Grand Serre Chevalier.

The old town of Briancon is a fortified town built by Vauban and is now protected by Unesco. Extra activities in resort - Ice rink, skidoo, ice driving track, indoor swimming pool, Spa (sauna, jacuzzi,massages etc), Paragliding school, Riding school, Cinéma.

The new thermal baths in Monetier Les Bains, has natural thermal waters which are heated to 45 degrees and the complex has lots of different spa facilities designed to help you relax

More than 80% of the ski area is above 2000m which means that the area is snow sure from mid December through to end of April.
