Don't delay to join us for this fabulous Bridge and Skiing week!
Following two hugely successful ski-bridge weeks in nearby Montgenevre, we are holding our latest holiday in Serre Chevalier, located in the Southern French Alps a jewel of a ski area. Appreciated by many including the editors of Where to Ski and Snowboard (who rate Serre Chevalier as one of their favourite places, ‘Provence in the snow’), the skiing of Serre Chevalier is suitable for all levels of skiers and has an excellent snow record, despite its famed 300 days of sunshine a year.

The Grand Hotel and Spa
The recently renovated Grand Hotel and Spa has arguably the best location in the centre of Chantemerle village. It was one of the first hotels to be built in Serre Chevalier and is right opposite the slopes and lifts. The new building is modern and stylish throughout, whilst still retaining its traditional heart and cosy chalet-style atmosphere. The rooms are the epitome of mountain chic – a real haven to come back to after a busy day.
After a day on the slopes what could be nicer than heading to the hotel’s luxury Nuxe Spa? With a pool, sauna, steam room, chill out zone and three treatment rooms, the modern hotel spa has been designed to rejuvenate your spirits and soothe your tired limbs. A huge range of face and body treatments are on offer, as well as soothing massages, all using natural Nuxe products. The hotel even has its own luxury boutique, ‘Corner Lulli’.

Serre Chevalier boasts a big and varied ski area of 250km of pistes stretching from Briancon to Monetier, with 80% of its slopes over 2000m. It has lots of good woodland runs and is one of the few big French areas based on old villages with character; not to mention the friendly and welcoming locals! The village of Chantemerle is right in the centre of Serre Chevalier valley and two fast lifts (opposite the Grand Hotel) will take you directly to the heart of the ski area. You can then ski right back down to the village via the Luc Alphand black piste or a more gentle green run. Click HERE to find out more about Serre Chevalier.
