THE STABLE 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.

Wonderful holiday property

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lovely 2 weeks at The Stables. The property is very spacious, more than enough room for our party of 8 and plenty to occupy and please everyone in our group with ages ranging from 14 to 67!
The Xbox and DVD and plentiful DVD collection kept the teenagers occupied during the quieter evenings.
The property is beautifully renovated and right in the heart of village.All home comforts were provided to make our stay most enjoyable. I would recommend this property with no hesitation.
Highly recommend La Romanche and La Grange restaurants for food and friendly atmosphere.
Many thanks, we look forward to spending many more holidays here in future.

Truely Memorable Holiday

  • 5 of 5
The Stable House in Bourg D’Oisans turned out to be a fantastic place to spend our summer holiday. The house itself suited our party of 8 (6 adults & 2 children) superbly with loads of space spread over the 4 floors for eating, relaxing and sleeping. The only minor drawback was the absence of a washing machine but there were facilities close by and after all you don’t go on holiday to spend it washing!

Bourg D’Oisans is a beautiful little town set in stunning scenery and perfect if like us, the main reason for holidaying here is cycling. At the foot of Alpe D’Huez and within close proximity to other legendary Tour de France mountains such as the Cols du Glandon, Coix de Fer, Lauteret & Galibier as well as Les Deux Alpes it is the perfect base for following in the wheels of the legends of the tour.

The town has a nice amount of shops, my 9 yr old son can highly recommend Cycles et Sports for keen cyclists as he was in there nearly every day spending all his pocket money (!) and we can also recommend Bleach Xtreme where we hired a couple of bikes from, including one for said 9 year old. It also has a number of cafes & restaurants, we can particularly recommend La Romanche & Chez les Filles. Bourg has a wonderful bustle & energy with many cyclists & walkers about.

We would thoroughly recommend the Stable House as a holiday home, Liz & Steve were also extremely helpful and approachable answering all questions quickly and in detail, and Bourg D’Oisans as a destination. It will certainly go down as one of our best ever.

Ultimate cycling location in the Alps

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay. Big lounge and dining areas with all the necessary mod cons (no sky tv but not what we were on holiday for!). Within an easy day's cycle (for amatuers or pros) of Galibier, Croix de la Fer, Les Deux Alpes and right on the doorstep is the fantastic Alpe d'Huez. Plenty of bed space (8 of us) and 30 seconds walk from cafes, shops etc. We will definitely return here!

Fantastic location for a holiday

  • 5 of 5
The reason for going to Bourg D'Oisans was the Alpe D'Huez Triathlon. Rather than undertaking such a tough event and having to camp, a quick search of the internet brought up the Stables as pretty much the only the large property which seemed to answer all of our needs. Even better was the the fact that the race was on a Wednesday so the Sunday to Sunday rental period worked perfectly.

We had a great week and the property was pretty much ideal.

Advantages:
a) Owner's website is accurate and tells it how it is. They have not tried to exaggerate anything.
b) Liz & Steve (owners) were very good and easy to deal with throughout. E-mails/questions were always answered quickly and no issues resolving a few minor matters. An example was the kettle which failed on first use (no doubt left by previous people staying who kept quiet!!) so we just bought one and they reimbursed us.
c) Location is perfect -you are about 250m from heart of what is a lovely town yet you are in quiet side street.
d) House is lovely and even in mid-summer, the old design keeps it cool when blistering outside.
e) We hardly used the large living room as we all seemed to gather in the kitchen/diner area. No problems cooking and using facilities.
f) Fantastic area - the mountains are beautiful and so many things to do.
g) House is full of character and has been massively refurbished from a wreck. There are great views from some of the bedrooms.

Disadvantages:
a) You just need to be aware if you have kids aged between about 1 to 3 that the stairs are large, steep and wide. The floors are not carpeted and are pretty solid in some areas. Our only concern was that once our two babies start crawling and walking, that would need to be extra vigilant due to layout. This would not be an issue to most people and perhaps it is me being lazy and not wanting to be chasing after kids all the time.
b) The floorboards creak a bit - no real issue and adds to the character. After a few days, you learn how to walk on them and minimise the noise anyway.

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend it. We would certainly go back as a family if in that area again for a week. In addition, it would be perfect place for a cycling holiday. And if you need to rent a bike, use Guinot Sports Shop about 250 m from house. Great racing carbon bikes as I wrecked mine before the triathlon so needed to hire one in an emergency.

Fan-bleedin'-tastic! We were a party of three dads and eight kids for two weeks skiing in Alpe D'Huez and The Stable House was the best ski-base for us. Incredibly warm, comfy and spacious - We loved it! After a days skiing and snowboarding it was great to get out of the ski resort and down to the charming village of Bourg D'Oisans with the park and the log over the river. The Stable House had everything - a great kitchen for feeding all the hungry kids, a huge dining room table, a big sitting room stacked full of DVDs and lovely warm bedrooms. Thanks Liz and Steve. We will be back!!
