Summer Breaks

Serre Chevalier is an outstanding summer resort, with a wonderful summer climate and a wealth of attractions for visitors of all ages. We are delighted to be opening our chalet on a bed and breakfast basis from July through to September.

From 3 nights at just £49.00 and 7 nights £99.00 per person based on 2 people sharing.

The mountain areas around Serre Chevalier are a stunning summer destination. There are numerous outstanding walking routes suitable for all levels of fitness, along with activities such as kayaking / rafting, paragliding, climbing, mountain-biking and road cycling, go-karting and paint-balling. There is also a golf course in nearby Montgenevre and both horse-riding and outdoor tennis facilities just a few metres from our chalet. This picturesque area is truly a photographer`s delight and many of the ski lifts are open during the summer so all visitors can easily access everything the mountains have to offer. Find out more about this amazing area on the local tourism website here.

Visitors can also enjoy the resort`s open-air bio pools and thermal baths, as well as the historic old towns and their many markets. No visit would be complete without experiencing the beauty of nearby Briancon, the highest city in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The area is a gastronomic delight, with a wide selection of local food being served in a variety of restaurants and cafes or sold directly to visitors by the producers. There are also a number of excellent vineyards nearby, which are well worth a visit.
