There are numerous quality yet reasonably priced restaurants within immediate walking distance along with bars, local shops and is situated 5 minute's drive from the town gondola and base of the ski lifts, connecting Briancon to Serre Chevalier. Briançon, the highest town in Europe, is a beautiful fortress town, walled and fortified by the famous Vauban and the result is simply stunning. The town has two parts: the lower town is at the junction of the Durance and Guisane rivers, where the N84 highway passes through from Embrun/Guillestre towards Grenoble; the upper town is the walled area at the top, fortified by Vauban and includes the Fort du Chateau fortress at the peak. The apartment is in the centre of the old town, surrounded by numerous restaurants and shops. There are many sights to see in the town, with fountains, squares, sundials, gargouille streets, etc. A gargouille is a small canal that runs down the centre of the street, one of only two towns in France with gargouilles, the other being St Martin-Vésubie in the Alpes-Maritimes. Briançon has two gargouilles running down through the fortified upper town. One runs down the central Rue Grande, also called Grande Gargouille, the street on which the apartment is located. The second runs down Rue Mercerie, also called Petite Gargouille.More

About the neighbourhood
Serre Chevalier is a great place to ski, starting from Chantemerle, which is about 10 mins from the apartment. Hire skis from Ski 2000 (which is adjacent to the Cable car) and leave the skis and boots there overnight. Parking at the resort (100m away from lift) and at Briancon (60m from the apartment) is free apart from July and August and it is not difficult to find parking slots. There is a Ski Bus that connects all the 4 resorts which is free when you have a ski pass. Another bus goes around the town, stopping at the gates of the old town, collecting skiers and dropping them at the telecabine in the centre of Briancon. A 6 day skipass also entitles you to have a days skiing in each of the adjoining resorts of Montgenevre, Alp de Huez, Les Deux Alpes so if you get bored with Serre Chev...
