Hotel Plein Sud is located in the centre of the village of Chantemerle, only 250m from the ski lifts and the bottom of the famous Luc Alphand run. Due to it's prime location, situated in the middle of the ski area, staying here allows you to ski towards Le Monetier les Bains one day or towards Briançon another day. The resort is known for having 300 days of sunshine per year and the south-facing rooms in this hotel are perfect for taking in the spectacular views and enjoying the last of the afternoon sun.

Family friendly

Hotel Plein Sud is a friendly, family run hotel located in Serre Chevalier in the Southern French Alps. The property is owned by an English mother and son, offering a  warm welcome families alike. Known for their hard working attitude and genuine atmosphere, this hotel never fails to provide that easy-going holiday vibe all of us strive for. 

Spa and leisure facilities

There are plenty of opportunities to sit back and relax at Hotel Plein Sud. The indoor heated swimming pool is the ideal way to wind down after an active day on the mountain. Or perhaps take advantage of the access to a hammam pool and attractive garden.

Restaurant and Bar

The hotel offers a very warm welcome, with a cosy atmosphere in the recently renovated bar and restaurant. Accessible to both residents and non-residents, the restaurant is open every evening and the bar every day from 8am-midnight. They provide a range of tapas and have a fine selection of gins and whiskeys available - they even stock drinks you may never have heard of before. 

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.

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.
