Make the most of your stay at Serre-Chevalier Club Med to discover the natural beauty and fascinating culture of the Isère region.
In the Hautes-Alpes, in the heart of the Valley of La Guisane, the valley of Serre-Chevalier stretches from Briançon to Le Mônetier les Bains, via a string of small villages.
Plenty of activities both summer and winter. From Serre-Chevalier Club Med follow the Guisane (the paths are marked) and discover the Rocher Blanc, where life began some 300 million years ago. Serre-Chevalier Club Med is located:
- 15 km from Briançon, a city of art and history, with its Vauban fortifications (a world heritage site), its museum of the history of skiing in the Briançon region and its Maison du Parc National des Ecrins
- 48 km from the Parc National des Ecrins, France’s fifth largest national park, with 740 km of footpaths, summits over 3,000 m high and some forty glaciers.
The climate in the Hautes-Alpes
With a temperate, continental-type climate, the Valley of the Guisane has cold winters with good snow cover and hot summers.
In spring and autumn, the Foehn - a hot, dry wind - blows over the Alps. It heats the earth fast, making it a fertile region for vegetation in general and fruit in particular.
