“Fab summer holiday, so much to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We went white water rafting, dam building in a stream, swam in a lake, went cycling, went for walks and picnics, went up a cable car, had nutella crepes, got a tan and breathed in fresh air, slept in (every morning). To achieve this with with three kids under 8 isn't bad going. They all want to go back next year for more.

Top tip, get fit before you go there, it's not a place for lard arses!

“brilliant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

Excellent - particularly for intermediates and advanced. Huge area. Reasonable priced passes and restaurant prices not as expensive as many french resorts.

“Mixed resort, some older areas more attractive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

Newer areas unattractive and a bit run down, older areas better. Infrastructure of many of the lifts needs upgrading, didn't cope well with busy periods.
Pistes good for intermediates / beginners

“Good skiing but terrible hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

We spent the half term at Serre Chevalier, the skiing was great but the hotel we stayed at was awful. Chalet Hotel Serre Ratier, is in a fantastic position on the slopes and with a great sunny terrace. However the owner / manageress made our stay there at best unpleasant. She was persistently aggressive towards the children shouting and grabbing them roughly for not stacking the sledges in the right place or bringing snow on their shoes into the reception, amongst other things. The staff were either apologetic and looking to leave as soon as they found another job or as miserable as the owner.

Hi,
Thanks for your advice. You should have rated directly the hotel. Unfortunatly you have rated the resort 1 out of 5, though you have appreciated it.
Hope to see you again in our valley
Greetings from Serre Chevalier
