The Residence Aquisana Apartments are located in a quiet, peaceful residential area of Villeneuve. These apartments combine modern and traditional chalet architecture and are finished to a high standard, so expect cosy interiors made of natural wood and stone. 

Family-friendly facilities

Résidence Aquisana provides you and your family the privacy and proximity to allow yourselves to feel at home. These apartments do a brilliant job of accommodating for families providing access to family rooms, baby cots (at an extra charge) and high chairs and baby baths available on request. They are dog friendly too, so even your furry friends can join in on the holiday fun - with pre confirmation of course.    

Excellent location

One of the more popular features about The Résidence Aquisana Apartments is the excellent location and the easy access to ski. The apartments are positioned just 500m away from the Portillas cable car,  giving you free run of Serre Chevalier’s 250km of fantastic pistes. Plus, there is a free shuttle service running between Residence Odalys and the Pontillas and Frejus cable cars. Residence Aquisana doesn't only benefit skiing as the apartments are also a five minute walk away from local amenities, meaning après and relaxation plans can start almost immediately.  

Spa and leisure

The indoor pool and hammam are a great reward after a long day skiing and access to the small pool in the residence is free of charge. There is a fitness centre along side the spa allowing you to burn off some steam away from the slopes. You can also pay locally for additional services such as towel hire, steam room and laundry.

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.

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.
