About Kathryn

Having moved from Britain and lived in this area for over 14 years I feel I can offer plenty of local knowledge to allow you to have a wonderful holiday.

Kathryn purchased this house in 2001

Why Kathryn chose Briançon

This property comprises a unique Chalet and stunning house with private garden and terrace situated in a typical French hamlet in the commune of Briancon where you can experience life as a local and at the same time experience all the tourist activities incredibly close by.

What makes this house unique

Its private garden with stunning mountain views in both Summer and Winter. The village of Fontchristianne is well known for its evening sun, the best in the area.

Charming, beautiful, full of character, spacious and very comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We were really charmed by the property, perched up the hill it has lovely views. It is a bit far from the town centre but as we hired cars from the airport this was not an issue at all. Besides, with the cosy fireplace, the tons of space and the always warm jacuzzi and sauna we did not need anything else!

There were 8 of us, all adults, but the house would have been more than comfortable for 4 families with their children as well.

Our host, Kathryn, was incredibly responsive and helpful along the way. She would contact us in advance to ensure we have all our queries answered. When we had questions she would respond instantly and in detail. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was troubleless and pleasant.

We had a fantastic time, a huge thank you! I would highly recommend this property!

Ski Trip 2015

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our stay at chalet and apartment Vauban and would highly recommend it! The accommodation is beautiful and we loved the hot tub/sauna option post a day on the slopes. Hannah was really helpful both during the booking process and with any queries when we arrived. The chalet is a little way out of main village so a car is definitely necessary, however we organised a shuttle service with a local company and this worked really well for us.
