So we are thinking of heading back out to Serre Chevalier 17th March- 24th March 2018.
Accommodation We will be staying in Hotel Chalet Le Petit Sport. This is budget accommodation but worked great for us this year and the food is super as well as the guys who run it who couldn't do enough for us.
Le Petit Sport is set on the edge of Villeneuve just 400m from the Pontillas Gondola station, with the ability to ski back to within 250m of the door. The ski area is diverse, having many tree runs and wide open bowls in a number of inter-connected valleys running the length of the resort.
Villeneuve is at the centre of the Serre Chevalier valley, making it the perfect base to explore the area. Although it is only a short walk from the chalet to the lifts there is a free shuttle bus connecting the chalet to the lifts and village centre, as well as other villages of the resort. The largest of these is Chantmerle which has many restaurants, shops and lively après ski. The picturesque village of Monetier is famed for its natural warm thermal baths. Villeneuve allows easy access to Briancon, at the heart of which is a beautifully preserved fortified medieval city. Briancon, Europe`s highest city, has plenty to offer both skiers and non-skiers alike, including regular markets, wonderful sightseeing and a feared Ice Hockey team. An added advantage is that your local ski pass includes a day at each of the resorts of Montgenevre, Alpe D`Huez and Les Deux Alpes.
Prices will be based on 2 People Sharing. Twin and Double rooms available and are all En-suite.
The package will include half board which is provided by the hotel. This will consist of Hot Breakfast each morning, Afternnon Tea & 6 Home Cooked Three Course evening meals with a choice of a Glass of wine or Beer per course.
