Welcome to EurekaSKI
Where did it all begin? EurekaSKI started as Serre Chevalier’s first British ski school, run by us… BASI ski teacher Gavin Crosby and wife Mel, dragged to the Alps by Gavin in 2001 (but it all turned out well!)
In 2010 we joined hands with one of the Alps’ favourite ski schools to form New Generation Ski School Serre Chevalier. This enabled EurekaSKI to focus on accommodation: finding places to stay for our growing number of ski school clients. We then of course set out to help guests with their holiday extras such as lift passes, transfers, equipment hire and catering.
Today, EurekaSKI remains a small, independent tour operator proud to have gained a reputation for its friendly, high-quality service and portfolio of excellently-located properties. All of our apartments offer comfort, cleanliness and convenience. We take real pride in the accommodation and always strive to be competitive in price.
Apartment only, or some extra help to fine-tune your holiday?
Come and stay in one of our apartments – you won’t be disappointed! And if you like, you can let us help you organise your transfers, lift passes, ski/snowboard coaching and catering. We will also recommend other services such as where to hire your skis, snowboards, bikes, and what your best childcare solution is.
Spa apartments with outdoor heated pool
We have eight spa apartments, with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms, just 100-150 metres from the ski/summer lifts in Serre Chevalier’s highest village Le Monêtier les Bains)! These Chalets de la Chamoissière spa apartments are privately owned, furnished by their owners to provide a real home-from-home. Having managed these apartments for more than 10 years, we are always delighted to see guests return year after year. In 2018, we chose to focus solely on these apartments for traditional winter and summer holidays (rather than offer a huge number of properties that we don’t know inside out).
Characterful walled-city apartments
All of our Serre Chevalier apartments are chosen for their location, furnishings and amenities. We therefore can’t ignore Serre Chevalier’s historic town Briançon Cité Vauban. Stay in one of our characterful properties in the historic old walled city and enjoy their modern features and free private wifi. Located in the heart of the old town, they are just metres from Briançon’s best clothing, souvenir and gift shops, restaurants, children’s parks, cafés, tourist office – and with easy access to the ski/bike lift called ‘Prorel’.
Group trips (9+ skiers?)
Many of our guests come back with family and friends and some have even organised fantastic get-togethers and ski reunions on the slopes. And thanks to Serre Chevalier’s incredible location, we have famous mountain passes in all directions (Col du Galbier, Col d’Izoard, Col du Granon, Col du Lautaret, … ) – the region is therefore perfect for cycling holidays. We work with local chalet owners and hotels to offer group and corporate ski trips. Send us an email or give us a call to discuss group discounts on lift passes, summer activity planning and accommodation ideas.
‘Flexible’ holidays in Serre Chevalier
With more and more people travelling independently thanks to increasing flight options and easier journeys from the UK to the Alps, our passion is great self-catering accommodation. We work hard to make all of our apartments available on a ‘flexible’ basis i.e. for a minimum of three nights, with arrival and departure days on any day of the week. Some are bookable on this basis all year-round, others outside of peak weeks only – but watch this space!
Use our enquiry form to find out what properties you can rent flexibly. If you’ve already found an apartment you like, use the calendar on the relevant apartment page (e.g. Les Sept Étoiles) and see what dates are available for you!
