  • Hiya! We'd be visiting someone near the Tourist Office, at the top of Rue du Commandant Carlhan - Pres des Forts looks really close but it's not clear from some maps whether you have to walk a long way round to get between the two. Are there paths connecting the roads? How far is the walk? Thanks!
    Hi, it takes 1 minute, or less, on foot. Super easy! Melanie

  • How far away is the parking? Can you park in front of the apartment while unloading luggage?
    The Champ de Mars car park is 200m away. I give you an access card that lets you to enter the old town and park directly in front of the apartment during your stay; to drop bags, equipment, .. you keep the card for continued access during your stay.

  • Since the unit is on the ground floor, it is not private unless the window coverings are closed?
    Hello, yes the apartment is ground floor. It is not a busy street. If you have the lights on at night with the internal shutters/blinds open, then people will see you. Normally during the day it is not easy to see into the apartment (with daylight).

Uniquely placed within the walls of the old town of Briançon; come and stay in our self-contained two bedroom apartment (sleeps four guests). You have your own private entrance and the apartment has everything you need to enjoy a stay whether visiting with family, friends or for work. You can enjoy a partial view of the mountains all year round from the balconette and some outside space for alfreso dining in spring and summer.
We love property, we love Briançon and the Serre Chevalier valley! Come and stay in our recently renovated old town house. We have been living here since 2001 when we set up an English-speaking ski school in Serre Chevalier. If you're booking a skiiing holiday, please ask about our reduced price lift passes and our English-speaking ski lessons and ski guiding.
We live in a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the medieval town of Briançon, the Cité Vauban. Great for skiing holidays, road cycling (many infamous local mountain passes), white water activities, sight-seeing, walking, climbing and fishing.
