We arrived at Chez Bear during a terrific thunderstorm and subsequent power cut but Michael made us very welcome and even drove us into town so we could have some dinner (and collected us). The room had a great view over Briancon and a comfy bed. Having just a curtain between the bedroom area and toilet/shower might not be to... More

We happened across Chez Bear in the shoulder season and found it a great place to rest from touring the alps. The hosts welcomed us and made us a part of the family, gave us tips of where to go in Briancon and how to best enjoy the lodge and the old walled city. We sat out and enjoyed a... More

Staying at Chez Bear Ski Lodge was a special treat. The lodge is a warm and wonderful work of art, beautifully constructed and decorated like a cross between a ski lodge and a British Pub. Our GPS guided us through the town or we would have struggled to locate Chez Bear. We were welcomed by Mike, who gave us a... More

Absolutely beautiful, amazing construction and great hosts. So far the high light of our motorcycle trip around the Alps and Italy. You feel as if you never want to leave, it's that cozy, even in summer! Mike is SO accommodating, nothing seems to be a problem, every request is greeted with a smile. He even gave us a lift to...

A wonderful base for our cycle weekend where we stayed for 4 nights. Great hospitality in a beautiful setting. Highly recommended. Fabulous breakfasts and great coffee set us up perfectly for the mountain climbs. Chez Bear is in a quiet location about 2kms from Briancon and Mike provided an excellent taxi service so we could sample the local restaurants for... More

This has to be one of the best catered chalets in the resort of Serre Chevalier. From being collected at Turin Airport to being dropped back seven days later there was nothing too much of a problem for our hosts Helen & Mike. Where to start….. Helens cookery skills - Absolutely fantastic, not your usual Lasagna or Spag Bol pasta... More

This was our second visit to Chez Bear and, again, we have no hesitation in recommending the place to others. The lodge itself is really nice; especially the interior which has wow-factor. The real magic though is delivered by Helen and Mike. Both are genuinely nice people; Helen is super-skilled in the kitchen, and Mike does an excellent job of... More

I couldn't recommend this place enough. My usual concern for a holiday, being a vegetarian, is the food. But Helen coooked some lovely food and catered to my needs having advised my dietary requirement in advance. The Chalet itself was very homely and Mike and Helen were great hosts, making us feel extremely welcome. Thanks for a great holiday!
