Chalet in winter

Chalet Chamoissiere is available for the first week of the season, so get yourself over to our website, and book yourself a week’s accommodation with linen included for just 700€ . The only downside is that our pool is only open on the Saturday and Sunday evenings that week. However, you can visit the Grands Bains just 200m away for a spa experience to remember.

Non-skiers in your party? Things to do in Serre Chevalier

I know we may find it hard to believe, but not every visitor to Serre Chevalier wishes to ski or snowboard. But what can they do here? Most think of a ski resort as high altitude, loads of pistes, and not much else, and while Serre Chevalier has  those things too , we have plenty of other activities to enjoy

Saucissons

  1. The thermal baths in Monetier-les-Bains should  be at the top of everyone’s list.  It is a  great apres-ski activity too for the skiers and boarders.  Open daily, only children under 4 are excluded. You can also book spa treatments as well as enjoy the Roman-styled baths.
  2. Book a guided snowshoe walk with the International Ski School in Monetier-les-Bains. See the resort from another angle and visit the larch forests.
  3. Get on the regular ski bus, and take a trip into the old walled citadel of Briancon. Now a  UNESCO World Heritage site, on a sunny day you can while away a couple of hours, have a real Italian coffee or ice-cream, or even have a mediaeval style lunch in one of the restaurants. Take a look in the collegiate church for some good examples of religious icons.
  4. Join the skiers up the mountain for lunch. There is pedestrian lift access to several of the mountain restaurants. The best choice is probably at Serre Ratier, which is served by the new panoramic gondola from Chantemerle, The Chapka and Flocon restaurants in the Monetier sector can be reached on the Bachas chairlift.
  5. Chill out on the terrace with your own special view of the mountains at Chalet Chamoissiere and watch the skiers returning from their day on the mountains with a glass of wine in hand.
  6. Don’t forget a visit to the local markets, best of all is in the bottom part of Briancon near the Parc de la Schappe on a Wednesday. Monetier’s market day is Friday, perfect for some souvenir shopping.

  • Enjoy  the 250kms of pistes, whatever your standard. We’re just a short walk from the lifts and nursery slopes.
  • Try out the  high speed 6 man  Vallons chairlft on the Cucumelle or the new panoramic gondola in Chantemerle, opening for next winter.
  • Book some ski lessons with Gavin Crosby of New Generation ski school.
  • Bring the family, Serre Chevalier is ideal for all ages,  and holds the ‘Famille Plus’ label. Our apartment is just 200m from the slopes,  and there is childcare available.
  • Book a guide for an off-piste trip to La Grave, just a short drive away, or explore the many off-piste opportunities in the Serre Chevalier Valley.
  • Visit Monetier’s thermal baths, and swim under the stars
  • Stay in Chalet Chamoissiere, and enjoy our heated pool, sauna and hammam . 
  • Your dog will love it too, our pet-friendly accommodation is ideal.
  • Enjoy some of the nicest restaurants in the Alps.
  • And finally, if you don’t already ski, contact us for details of our beginners packages.

Winter bookings now being taken.

I think this hot weather must be making people think of cooling down and their skiing holiday, as my inbox has been busy this weekend with enquiries from past guests . We were busy at Chamoissiere in July making some changes to our decor and furnishings as well as enjoying some of the brilliant restaurants in the area.

Some pictures of our new decor.

Repainted and refurbished

After 7 years Chamoissiere was in need of a bit of a refresh. Although we have repainted, and replaced some of the furniture over the past fews years, we like to keep things fresh and comfortable.

Doing things from a distance is sometimes difficult, so we started a Pinterest board with some ideas and colour schemes we could develop. You can see our ideas here http://pinterest.com/chamoissiere/design-ideas/

Here’s a peek at the new bedroom for next winter.
