A major ski resort in French
Alps, Serre Chevalier isn't a name of a town but an area comprised
of three communes (Saint Chaffrey, La Salle des Alpes, Le Monetier
Les Bains) with the main villages being Saint Chaffrey, Chantemerle,
Villeneuve and Monetier les Bains. One road runs through the
narrow valley with the four main villages
spaced out every few miles. My favorite village would be Chantemerle, for no other reason
than having the best patisserie shops.
Is this place
hopping or is it dead in the summer?
Is there a lake
and/or golf course in town?
car the only option?
goes through the valley.
Does the place
is narrow with mountains rising abruptly. Not good for someone
Lots of choices
for acccomodations (hotels/ chalets) and do I have recommendations?
many hotels but plenty of holiday apartments to choose from.
Could I spend
a whole summer here or would I get bored?
would be enough.
