The hotel benefits from all of the facilities you would need for the perfect holiday. Access to the ski area is easy, with the ability to ski-in/ski-out of the hotel. There are also many opportunities to relax - take a seat in front of the open fire in the evening or enjoy the benefits of the Pure Altitude spa located in the hotel cellar.

Serre Chevalier

  • Ski to 2,800 metres 
  • Transfer time of 2 hours 30 mins by coach from Turin airport
  • 250 kilometres of skiable terrain

The resort of Serre Chevalier takes its name from the peak that dominates the Guisane Valley and is made up of four separate villages. This fantastic ski area has 250 kilometres of well interconnected pistes, ample off piste opportunities above Villeneuve and Monetier and probably more trees than any other resort in Europe. We've chosen accommodation situated in the villages of Villeneuve and Chantemerle for their good selection of bars, restaurants and shops. 

Skiing and snowboarding in Serre Chevalier

Beginners are well catered for with the ski areas 'discovery' zones which are made up of green pistes, perfect for gaining confidence before expanding your terrain. The 'Petits Domaines' area are great for those of working up to an intermediate level with access to some easy, cruisy blue slopes and a range of red runs to whizz down. You'll also find plenty of slopes here to challenge you if you're an advanced skier or boarder, with 15 black runs with some very steep descents down from the peaks. Serre Chevalier offers some quick powder fixes or whole days of off piste with opportunities for you to go with a guide to really make the most of what these mountains have to offer. The ski area provides some fantastic opportunities for free riding as the whole area is essentially one huge snow park - there are plenty of tight, tree lined runs, ravines and long steeps slopes for you to really push your skills to the limit. 

Where to stay in Serre Chevalier

Across the villages of Villeneuve and Chantemerle, we have a range of 3 and 4 star hotels and apartments available. All of our accommodation is family friendly and located either in the centre of resort or within a 2-3 minutes' walk away.

You'll also find a range of spa facilities in each property including swimming pools, fitness rooms and saunas as well as spa treatments available at a local charge. 

Bars and restaurants in Serre Chevalier

Staying in Serre Chevalier, you can enjoy traditional French cooking. Across resort you'll find a number of atmospheric restaurants and cafes. Some of our favourites include restaurant l'Étage which serves mountain specialities including Fondue Savoyarde, Raclette sur rampe, Tartiflette and Pierrade and restaurant Le Gavroche which cooks traditional dishes using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

Serre Chevalier is a fairly quiet resort, however the Villeneuve side of resort is where all the après ski scene is and you'll still be able to stop somewhere for a drink and a dance. Le Royal is a bar located at the bottom of the Chantemerle slopes and has great music as well as a warm, welcoming atmosphere. They also serve small bites here including crêpes, so it's a good choice for an after ski snack and drink.
