Snowgums – A slice of the Australian High Country in the French Alps
Briançon offers the best of France to the international visitor. Historic châteaux hotels, chalets, apartments and, of course, charming gîtes ( self- catering country cottages). A gîte can provide you with an affordable and comfortable way of experiencing a more authentic glimpse of French life, especially if you plan to stay more than a few nights.
One such gîte is Snowgums, tucked away in a peaceful village on the edge of Briançon.
