Four Reasons to Invest in Serre Chevalier

If you are considering buying a property in Serre Chevalier, Cimalpes has summarised the resort's main advantages so that you can make a fully informed decision with peace of mind.

1. The Largest Resort in the Southern French Alps

One of the main pleasures of owning a property in the mountains is having skiing on your doorstep. With 250 kilometres of marked runs, the Serre Chevalier ski area is the largest in the French Alps. With 80% of the ski area at over 2,000 metres in altitude, Serre Chevalier has good natural snow cover, and the resort has an extensive network of snow-making facilites. With a network of eightyone pistes and four snowparks and fun zones, when you buy a property here, you will always have plenty of skiing to enjoy. 

2. An Inspiring Environment

Serre Chevalier is situated in the Hautes-Alpes department in the southern French Alps. The resort stretches out along the Guisane valley on the edge of the Ecrins national park. This is a truly wonderful environment with breathtaking views in every direction. Serre Chevalier is renowned for its beautiful weather, with an average of 300 days sunshine a year, a major attraction for prospective property buyers. People who buy property in Serre Chevalier tend to be lovers of nature and the great outdoors, and will particularly enjoy the summer season when there are 360 kilometres of hiking and mountain biking trails as well as a whole range of other activities to enjoy.

Did you know ? It is also possible to enjoy white water rafting and canyoning in the Serre Chevalier valley.

3. Natural Hot Springs

Le Monêtier-les-Bains is renowned for its natural hot springs and thermal baths where wellness comes first. After an active day on the mountains, this is a perfect place to relax and unwind in the heart of unspoiled nature with spectacular views of the glaciers. These thermal waters are recognised for their many health benefits, including the relief of skin and digestive problems. Take time out and relax in the outdoor swimming pool with views of the surrounding mountains, or in the Roman Trilogy baths - three pools in which to immerse yourself at different temperatures. And if that wasn't enough, there are saunas, steam rooms, Jacuzzis, waterfalls, geysers, and even a musical grotto, in which to truly let yourself go.

4. Briançon, A Town Listed as a UNESCO Heritage Site

Serre Chevalier is a cultural as well as sporting destination. Situated at the gateway to Serre Chevalier valley, Briançon is the highest fortified town in Europe, and sits at an altitude of 1,326 metres. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the town is dominated by its citadel which comprises seven forts constructed by the military engineer, Vauban.
