The best accommodation in Serre Chevalier


Serre Chevalier has lots of affordable accommodation, mainly in apartments or small hotels, and some UK tour operators run catered chalets here. But compared with most French resorts, there is little in the way of luxury accommodation. A new four-star hotel, as well as a budget youth hostel, is scheduled to open in Briançon’s disused19th-century barracks in December 2024.
