Briançon, the highest town in Europe, is a beautiful fortress town, walled and fortified by the famous Vauban and the result is simply stunning. The town has two parts: the lower town is at the junction of the Durance and Guisane rivers, where the N84 highway passes through from Embrun/Guillestre towards Grenoble; the upper town is the walled area at the top, fortified by Vauban and includes the Fort du Chateau fortress at the peak. The apartment is in the centre of the old town, surrounded by numerous restaurants and shops.

There are many sights to see in the town, with fountains, squares, sundials, gargouille streets, etc. A gargouille is a small canal that runs down the centre of the street, one of only two towns in France with gargouilles, the other being St Martin-Vésubie in the Alpes-Maritimes. Briançon has two gargouilles running down through the fortified upper town. One runs down the central Rue Grande, also called Grande Gargouille, the street on which the apartment is located. The second runs down Rue Mercerie, also called Petite Gargouille.

Skiing - Serre Chevalier

Briancon in Serre Chevalier, is a great place to ski and a good starting point is from Chantemerle, which is about 10 mins from the apartment by car. Hire skis from Ski 2000 (which is adjacent to the Cable car) and leave the skis and boots there overnight. Parking at the resort (100m away from lift) and at Briancon (60m from the apartment) is free apart from July and August and it is not difficult to find parking slots.

There is a Ski Bus that connects all the 4 resorts which is free when you have a ski pass. Another bus goes around the town, stopping at the gates of the old town, collecting skiers and dropping them at the telecabine in the centre of Briancon.

A 6 day skipass also entitles you to have a days skiing in each of the adjoining resorts of Montgenevre, Alp de Huez, Les Deux Alpes so if you fancy a change from Serre Chevalier you can go elsewhere easily.

Boasting 300 days of sunshine a year, Briancon offers hiking, climbing, mountaineering, mountain-biking, hill walking and kayaking. The valley is steeped in history, beauty and traditional French country life. You will find some of the best hiking trails in Europe and with easy access to a number of well-defined routes, the apartment is the ideal location to base yourself to set off for some exercise before returning to relax and enjoy a good meal.

There are lots of excellent tough or easy trails all within a few minutes drive from Briancon. These are well set out and marked and range from less than an hour to a number of days to complete.
