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


  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.

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



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