Visitor Reviews of Serre Chevalier
Jessica Wright from France writes:
Serre Chevalier is a gem kept secret from the rest of the Alps. Having never heard of the area before my arrival I was dubious and unsure what it would have to offer. However, my qualms were short lived. Although the village I stayed in (Villeneuve) was small and quiet, it was quaint and had everything that I would want throughout my stay, even an old town full of character that transports you to 17th century French living. There are 4 main towns that make up Serre Chevalier all with something to offer. Villeneuve (where I stayed), Monetier Les Bain, with a wonderful outdoor thermal spa perfect for a change of pace, Chantemerle with more of an evening atmosphere and Briancon, the highest town in Europe which boasts another wonderful old town, which towers over the modern town in the hills of Serre Chevalier. All 4 places connect by a free (with a lift pass) and frequent bus service. You can also catch a bus to Montgeneve, a better known ski resort which is also worth a visit! The skiing in Serre Che is perfect for intermediate skiers who like to challenge themselves but also have the option to take easier scenic routes down. It is through the trees and is a beautiful setting to enjoy and be in.
