Serre Chevalier

On the edge of the superb Ecrins National Park, Serre-Chevalier is made of 13 hamlets and villages located between the famous 'Lautaret' pass and Briançon, Europe's highest fortified town.

Despite being one of the most northern points of the Provence Cote d'Azur region the area benefits from a true Mediterranean Alpine climate with over 300 days of sunshine every year.

Simply enjoy the beautiful scenery with the majestic Ecrins peaks or try out one of the many activities available.

The villages of Chantemerle and Villeneuve at Serre Chevalier have all the shops and restaurants you will need during your holiday but in any case, the larger fortified town of Briançon is only a few miles away.

The area is opened to walkers, mountain bikers, paragliders and to anyone who enjoys a picnic or a meal in one of the numerous mountain restaurants...

Several of the celebrated ’Grandes Randonnées’, or long-distance European footpaths, cross through, over and make their way around the Serre Chevalier valley. These include the Tour of the Haut Dauphiné and the famous Via Alpina. The Guisane valley is on the Route des Grandes Alpes, a road which starts at Lake Geneva and crosses 16 Alpine passes to finish 600km further south, in the town of Menton on the shores of the Mediterranean.

History has left Serre Chevalier with a rich heritage and it acts as a beacon for the cultural identity of the region. Among the visible signs of this identity are the guardian-like 15th-century clock towers built in the Lombard Romanesque style that appear in virtually all of the small villages in the valley.
