Overview - chalet description - Chalet Amandier description

Sleeps 10-13 guests

Chalet Amandier is a charming chalet in the village of Villeneuve in the Serre Chevalier Valley. The chalet offers modern and comfortable accommodation and has been built with ample use of wood so retaining a very traditional character.

There are two separate lounges each with a TV. Canapés and apéritifs are served in the lounge on the first floor which is just next to the dining room with its welcoming wood burning stove. The balcony has some great views overlooking the slopes of Serre Chevalier. The nearest ski lift is the Pontillas cable-car which is a 7 minutes' walk although there is a free minibus service to whisk you to the Frejus lift and ski school meeting place in the centre of Villeneuve at the start and then end of the skiing day. The centre of Villeneuve itself is approximately 10 minutes' walk and it is here that you will find a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops.

Spread across a number of villages and hamlets, the Serre Chevalier valley’s not your usual alpine resort – but that’s what we like about it. While you won’t find a main hub of restaurants, bars and accommodation, a stay in one of the villages gives you a more ski-focussed, budget friendly week on the mountains. Briancon, Chantemerle, Villeneuve and Monêtier are the four main bases, each with their own character, but all with terrific lift access to the mountain. Typical French Briancon sits at the fa...
With some of the best conditions in the French Alps (80% of the slopes are above 2000m) the ski area includes wide-open, sunny plateaus, scenic tree lined runs and a perfectly groomed blanket of white beneath your skis or board. The piste can be accessed from all four towns and nursery slopes run from each allowing beginners to gain some confidence in peace - with help from the excellent ski schools in the area they’ll be progressing higher in no time! Beginners will find a number of gentle blues and steady ...
There’s never a dull moment here and with four different towns oozing character you’re sure to find something to suit you. Ski down the home run at Chantemerle to find the popular station bar where après ski begins with a happy hour or if you’re based in Villeneuve, the Grotto at the base of the slopes is the place to be for that après ski buzz! 1420 in Briancon is perfect for an evening of sophisticated drinks. The liveliest après is found at Villeneuve with a number of bars for evening drinks - The Frog ...

"Spacious, good food, average wine, short walk to lifts"

Richard Northcott, Bushy
4/ out of 5
Our room was very nice, we had the biggest one on the top floor and it was very spacious with our own balcony (still using the shared toilet and bathroom though). The communal lounge thing was nice and spacious too. The food was all good, although not as much as I’ve had in other chalets and the wine was fairly average – again I’ve had better elsewhere. The nearest lifts are a shortish walk from the chalet; it took us about 5-10 minutes and is a fairly flat walk, so the location of the chalet is pretty good.
