THE GRANARY HOUSE

Bourg d'Oisans Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Spacious, comfortable accommodation with WIFI. 2 homes for up to 10 or 12 people

'The Granary House’ and ‘The Stables’ have been fully renovated to provide two stunning homes in the centre of Bourg d’Oisans. Combining 19th century French tradition with modern spacious living this self-catering accommodation provides a true home from home. Bourg d’Oisans is your gateway to the mountains and all they have to offer: sport, relaxation and un-spoilt nature. It is only 20 mins to Alpe d'Huez, a snow-sure ski resort perfect for all abilities. Its convivial atmosphere, fabulous outdoor pool with corkscrew slide and toddlers pool, wide choice of shops, bars and restaurants and vibrant market are simply idyllic. Both homes are finished to a high standard with comfy sofas, XBox and DVDs, feather pillows and all mod-cons in the kitchen. The Granary House will comfortably accommodate up to 10 people and The Stables 12

Cycling Paradise: From small country roads to solitary mountain passes lost in the clouds, Oisans is a very popular area for cycling. Come and explore the six valleys of this fantastic area with its winding roads, its perched villages, sitting on mountain tops like eagles’ nests, or its more gentle roads opening up its hidden valleys. As you will see, each road has its own history and each village has its own distinctive character.

The ‘30 Cyclo Tourisme’ guide lists 30 routes all starting from Bourg d’Oisans, including the infamous 21 hairpin bends to Alpe d’Huez, as well as some less strenuous routes suitable for all the family.

Oisans hosts spectacular mountain bike competitions such as ‘Megavalanche’, the longest MTB downhill race in the world, starting in Alpe d’Huez and finishing 30km and 2800m further down. There are events for everyone to participate in and with the cable car open all year round, the route up the mountain could not be easier!

Summer Activities for Kids and Big Kids!: Take flight! Paragliding courses for beginners, tandem jumps and advanced courses all available. On the water -

whether you choose the peace and tranquility of fishing or the excitement of white water rafting, you can find it here, with over 200km of streams and rivers and many mountain lakes. Sailing, kayaking, rafting and canyoning, swimming pools, fountains in the summer, the water offers a wide range of refreshing possibilities.

The childrens club is open all summer to children aged 4 to 14, with all sorts of activities, swimming outings, tree climbing and sports tournaments. The Ecrins National park was created to protect and enhance the extraordinary natural heritage of Oisans. It has over 680km of way-marked trials ranging from simple strolls to adventurous hikes. Surrounded by the majestic mountains, whatever path you choose the setting is sure to be memorable. The 'Via Ferratas' (ladders, ramps and cables fixed to the rock face) provide climbers with complete security

Getting to Bourg and Alpe d'Huez: Our 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.

Just spent a week at The Stables at Bourg d'Oisans with my family.
What a lovely new rentall accomodation.
There were nine of us. Eight adults and one child. The accomodation was more than ample for us with 4 bedrooms, a super sized lounge and a spacious Dining area,
All new fittiings including a tv for the use of an X-box (which kept the boys happy).
The village itself was picturesque with plenty of touristy shops, restaurants and many varied Pubs..
The locations was perfec for the quick car journey to Alps d-'Huez and Les Deux Alps where we spent many perfect days Skiing.
Highly reccomended.... We hope to return.

An excellent place to stay in the area

A lovely place to stay for a summer cycling break. Very comfortable. All facilities clean and in good working order, and location ideal. WiFi was not available for our visit, but advised it was on order, which should be good for future visitors. And there were plenty of cafes with WiFi anyway. Booking process straightforward and owners easy to liaise with. Would definitely recommend to others. Enjoy!!

Very nice house in a beautiful location. House was as described in description. The property is well maintained and clean. Good cooking facilities if you prefer to eat rather then head to one of the many restaurants in the town.
We would highly recommend this house you won't be disappointed. Owners were easy to deal with and very efficient in responding to any queries.

Great cycling holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed with a group of uncles and nephews at the Granary House and we had a great time. This was our second time here and just as the first time we loved it. Bourg d'Oisans is a bit boring in this time of the year, but we were there to climb some mountains so that wasn't a problem to us. We had a great time here cylcling and running up the mountains.
The first time we stayed in the Stable house which is a big bigger, but the Granary house was big enough for us. Before we came we were informed that there were some problems with the cleaning of the house, but when we came the property was clean.
The discription on the site, fits with the property so everything was like we expected it to be, although you have to look carefully at the pictures provided on the site. Because some of the pictures belong to the stable house and not to the granaray house.
We will come back here next year for another cycling holiday and we recommend this property to anyone who comes here to cycle and wants to stay in a nice house!
Owner's Response: Thanks Peter, it is great to hear that you enjoyed your second stay with us, especially having stayed in both The Granary House and The Stable House. We look forward to hearing from you again in 2013!

Great Base for a Ski Holiday

We have had a fabulous time skiing over Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Granary House. What a lovely house in a stunning setting.

Three of us managed to Ski Alpe D’Huez, Les 2 Alpes and Serre Chevalier. The snow was good and by the end of the week most of the runs were open. The beginners amongst us had a great time too and Alpe D’Huez seems a great place to learn.

I will definitely think about using The Granary House if we ski Alpe D’Huez again. I will also recommend it to friends who may ski in that area.
