About Jos van Oosten
I was born in Rotterdam (Holland) and I still live and work in this region.
I earn my living with real estate. It is therefore obvious that for my retirement plan I siege in stones. That is why I bought this chalet (under construction then) in 2000.
I like being in Oz, but my favorite holiday Country is England. With my Triumph TR 6, I have traveled through many parts of South and Central England. England has a beautiful countryside, hence. But for skiing and cycling France remains my favorite.
Jos van Oosten purchased this chalet in 2000
Why Jos van Oosten chose Oz en Oisans
To my opinion France has the most beautiful and snowiest ski slopes of Europe by far. I have chosen the Oz en Oisans ski resort because it is the best of 2 worlds: a small and cosy village, but, because it is right in the middle of it, gives access to a huge and fantastic ski resort of 250 km.
What makes this chalet unique
The chalets are comfortable, complete and on spacious lots, so there is no noise pollution. Oz Station has, besides several small lifts, 2 quick cabin lifts bringing ski enthusiast right into the bustling heart of the ski resort.
Everything is within walking distance. A covered parking place is included. The Baker deliveres fresh bread to your doorstep daily.
Coming home after a day of skiing to enjoy a good glass of wine (or beer) near the fireplace. What more do you want?
Guestbook comments from the manager
We have had a fantastic week.
The weather was wonderful: good (bicycle) temperature and it only has rained once.
The stay at your House was also top!
I cannot think of anyhing we have missed about inventory and/or facilities. In fact: I can give a few points that are certainlypositive for booking the House for a group of cyclists. There are nice beds to sleep on. There are spacious showers/bath ar your disposal to refresh after a hard ride . The sweaty clothes can directly go into the washing machine and after that you can find everything in the spacious kitchen to replenish the calories.Pans also have the proper size to be able to cook for a large group (that is missing sometimes in holiday homes).
For the relaxation there was in addition to a TV and the indispensable nowadays Wi-Fi, plenty of music and movies available!
I can only think of 1 minus point to make as we had an older person in the group.My father (74jr) For him it was the distance from the cottage to the parking lot, where the cars were, was a difficult task.
We look back on a very successful week!
We hebben een fantastische week gehad.
Het weer zat dan ook heerlijk mee : goede (fiets)temperatuur en het heeft slechts 1x ’s nachts geregend.
Het verblijf in je woning was ook top !
Ik kan nu niet iets noemen wat we aan inventaris en/of faciliteiten hebben gemist.
Sterker nog : kan een paar pluspunten noemen die zeker het boeken van de woning voor een groep fietsers aantrekkelijk maakt.
Zo zijn er prima bedden om op te slapen. Er zijn ruime douches/bad om je na een zware rit op te frissen. De bezwete kleding kan direct in de wasmachine en daarna kun je in de ruime keuken alles vinden om de calorieën weer aan te vullen.
Pannen hebben ook de juiste afmeting om voor een grote groep te koken (dat ontbreekt nog wel eens bij sommige vakantiehuizen).
Voor de ontspanning was er naast TV en de tegenwoordig haast onmisbare WIFI, ook voldoende muziek en films aanwezig !
Ik kan slechts 1 minpuntje noemen, en dat heeft dan te maken dat we een wat ouder persoon in de groep hadden zitten.
Mijn vader (74jr) was mee. Voor hem was de afstand van het huisje naar de parkeerplaats, waar de auto’s stonden, in de ochtend wel een zware opgave.
We kijken terug op een zeer geslaagde week !
