Getting to Bourg and Alpe d'Huez: The closest airport is Grenoble, a small provincial airport that is wonderfully quick to get in and out from. Ryanair fly all year round and Easyjet in winter. Grenoble airport is 56 miles and about an hours drive from Bourg. We recommend pre-booking car-hire or you can take the transfer to Grenoble City Centre and a bus from there. Almost as easy is Lyon airport which is 85 miles and about an hour and a quarter drive. British Airways and many of the low cost airlines operate flights to Lyon and there is more choice to Lyon from airports in the Midlands and the North. Some guests also fly into Geneva which is about 2 1/2 hours drive. Grenoble train station and city centre is 44 miles from Bourg d'Oisans with a number of buses available. If you prefer to drive it is 8 to 9 hours from Calais or Boulougne. It's an easy, if long drive, as the motorways tend to be much quieter than the UK. The tolls are about 80 euros each way.
We had a fantastic stay in this property. The location was perfect - right in the middle of town, so great for restaurants,bars and shops. Within close proximity were all the renowned Alpine climbs. The house was very spacious and catered very well for the needs of cyclists, with plenty of bike storage, bathrooms etc.
Overall, excellent accommodation for a club cycling holiday!
The house was beautiful and in a great location which made for the perfect holiday. Easy to access the different resorts of Alpe D'Huez and close to all the restaurants and shops. The house was excellent in every way and so much so we have booked again which is a first for our family. Tony was incredibly helpful for any questions we had. We would highly recommend and look forward to visiting again soon.
All good: reservation, location, size, garage for bikes, 21 bends at the next corner... + an Xbox for "the kids"!
We had an incredible time.
10 of us stayed at this property, 2 families with children aged between 5 and 12. If you are thinking of doing the Alpe D Huez triathlon this house is ideal. The house was fantastic with a great garden which our children loved. It had everything you could want in a holiday home. The location of the house in the town was perfect. The swimming pool only a 5-10 minute walk and supermarkets and bakery less than that. There were lots of great restaraunts and cafes. We hope to return to this property in the future.
For the past 6 years we have come to Bourg d'Oisan for cycling. This is our 3rd house we have stayed in and by far the best house. Everything is how it supposed to be and in terrific shape. Feels like coming home. We already booked the house for next year! Thanks Tony and Nat for a fantastic stay!
We spent a fantastic 3 months in Tony and Nat's lovely house. It was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a more spacious and well-equiped property. When we had visitors, it accommodated 10 of us with ease, and we never felt cramped.
The open-plan kitchen-diner and living area works well for groups, and all the bedrooms have plenty of storage. We loved the huge bath after a hard day's skiing, and never ran out of hot water.
The heated locker room is ideal for loads of ski gear, and the house itself is centrally located, so great for getting bread and provisions by foot.
There are lovely bars and restaurants within walking distance, and it only takes 20 mins to drive up to Alpe d'Huez, so we were delighted with our decision to stay in Bourg d'Oisans rather than in a ski resort. Tony and Nat always answered questions promptly and made our stay hassle free. Looking forward to returning one day soon.
A perfect position for enjoying summer and winter activities, walking, climbing, horse riding, cycling, water sports, swimming, fishing, golf and paragliding are all on your doorstep. The Tour de France and the Marmotte touring race have made Bourg into a cycling mecca and you are ideally placed to make your way up the famous ‘21 bends’. The stunning Ecrins National Park has over 680km of way-marked trails ranging from simple walks to adventurous hikes. It is just a short stroll to the centre of the pretty village of Bourg d'Oisans. Bourg has several restaurants, cafes, a large supermarket and busy year round Saturday market. Within walking distance, communal tennis, a bouledrome and an open air pool with grass area for picnics. In the winter, ski the fantastic resorts of Alpe d'Huez (20 mins), Les 2 Alpes (30 mins) and the pretty tree lined resort of Vaujany. You are also less than an hour away from the delightful resort of Serre Chevalier.
Ski: The house is perfectly placed to experience the fantastic resort of Alpe d'Heux, one of the largest resorts in France and boasts an excellent snow record, extended season and is ideal for skiers and snowboarders of every level. Alpe d’Huez is served by 240Km of pistes with 88 inter-linked lifts. For beginners the lower slopes provide 39 confidence boosting green runs. Intermediates and snowboarders can enjoy the 32 blue runs as well as 28 more challenging reds with fantastic excursions to the satellite villages. The advanced skier will find some of the most testing terrain in France from the top of Pic Blanc at 3330mts, with 19 black runs including the longest in Europe, 'La Sarenne', and the intimidating 'Le Tunnel'. A regular ski bus picks up and returns to the village throughout the season. If you want to try a different resort then why not take a trip to the neighbouring resort of Les Deux Alps (30 mins) or the beautiful tree lined resort of Serre Chevalier?
