Hotels in Serre Chevalier
We feel that a bit of local knowledge is going to be very useful when looking for a hotel in Serre Chevalier. We believe this because some of the info is just wrong on Booking.com, not massively, but not as good as it could be. An example of a an error is here:

If you are looking for a good selection of Serre Chevalier hotels it is going to be worth your while reading this page at least. We have been living in Serre Chevalier since 2001 and although we haven’t stayed in every hotel, we certainly know where they are!

The valley has been here for thousands of years and skiing only started to happen at the end of it’s long long history, so if you are picking a hotel for a ski holiday you need to be careful. It’s OK though, we have you covered, there’s nothing like some local knowledge!
