AN UNDISCOVERED GEM IN THE FRENCH ALPES

  • 5 of 5
Last week seven Dutchmen went on a crazy road trip to Bourg d' Oisans to cycle the Alpes. We stayed in the chalet and had a fantastic time. The chalet is tidy, spacious and well-equipped (full kitchen, wireless internet, board and card games etc.). The scenary is amazing and it is only a 3 minutes walk from the chalet to the centre and 5 minutes to a large groceries store.

The owners even took care of little things like sending us maps in advance but also a complimentary welcome package upon arriving. Definitely we can recommend this chalet for a stay, even if you are not into cycling.

GREAT SKI BASE

  • 5 of 5
Just come back from week stay in this wonderful house. Easy to find, excellent location, good, clear instructions from Adeana. Very well equipped and maintained, didn't want for anything, apart from maybe an even bigger shovel for the 2 foot of snow that arrived on our 2nd day in Bourg - bit of a change from the 18c when we arrived!! Would highly recommend, especially if like us, you like to visit several different resorts.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
This house is a hidden gem! 4 couples and 2 infants stayed here for 2 weeks and it was ideal for everyone. The enclosed garden allowed the kids to be safe and there was plenty of room to run and play. Great outdoor seating area where we had dinner in the evening and heard about everyone's day. The swimming pool is near by, beware men's have to wear speedos! It was a fantastic holiday and we will all be back some day!

LOVELY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house is lovely. It's very well equipped, clean and located in a brilliant spot. There were 10 of us in the house and we had plenty of space. The garden is perfect for bbqing and sitting out of an evening. Bourg is really nice - a good selection of shops and restaurants. The owners communication is spot on and they are extremely helpful too. Highly recommended - we're back again in February for some skiing. Can't wait!

EASTER SKIING WITH MY FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Drove from the South Wales valleys the day before. We stopped overnight in The Ibis Hotel in Troyes. This made the drive to the chalet all the more bearable. I have travelled this route on several occasions and it is an easy drive, motorway all the way except for the last hour and a half. Chalet was excellent with a delightful garden next to a languid stream and equipped with everything you could want for a comfortable stay. There were five of us ranging in age from 56 to my four year old grandson on his second ski holiday. If you're cyclist there are many cycle hire shops, renting good quality bikes. If you're really keen bring your own pedals and cycle shoes. I wish I had as I used one of the bikes in the garage to climb Alp d'Huez. I reached turn 10 when the combination of a unsuitable bike, wrong footwear, the snow and visibility down to 10 metres max made me turn back. I'll be back one day with my bike and a summer's day to complete the most iconic Tour climb. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable holiday in an ideal location. Ps well stocked supermarket 5 minutes drive away

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your Winter holiday. I must say cycling in the Summer is a much better option especially if you bring your own bike. The bikes in the garage have seen better days and are mainly used for cycling around the village. You did exceptionally well getting up to bend 10 on one of them! We look forward to your return.
