About Jos Van Oosten
About the owner, Mark Danby. I live and work in the UK but have been skiing and snowboarding in the French Alps for over 25 years. I bought my chalet in Oz in 2006. I love the fact that Oz is a small, quiet village, yet the location gives you access to the huge ski area of Oz, Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany. In summer the mountains are a beautiful place to walk or cycle, and the Tour de France often passes nearby. About the chalet manager, Jos van Oosten Jos manages bookings for the chalet on my behalf. He is the owner of chalet 32 next door and, being Dutch, is far more proficient at languages than an Englishman! Many of our guests are French or Dutch and Jos ensures that the booking process is efficient and that guests are communicated with in their own language.

Très bonne location
Prestation de très bonne qualité, chalet très agréable, spacieux, literies de bonne qualité, cuisine bien équipée.
Nous étions 17 dont 6 enfants, l'espace de vie bien aménagé permet de ne pas être les 'uns sur les autres'.
Néanmoins, 2 petites remarques :
- l'accès au chalet, bien que proche des pistes, est assez 'sportif' (chemin en pente et/ou escaliers) surtout pour des personnes égées, ou enfants ne portant pas leurs skis, ainsi que lors de l'arrivée/départ avec bagages.
- couverture réseau mobile assez faible, pas de Wifi
Malgré ces remarques, je conseille cette location.
Great chalet, great skiing.
We stayed here over February half term, there were 8 adults and 10 children and there was plenty of room for us all.
The chalet was great, clean, warm and comfortable. It was very well equipped, plenty for self catering for 18 and there was also lots of hot water.
Oz village is a short walk, it's very family friendly, with a small but well stocked supermarket, several delis (including one that hires out raclettes which makes for a great sociable evening meal) and boulangeries. The ESF ski school meets in the centre of the village and there are several ski hire shops.
There is a button lift a short walk from the chalet this goes to the nursery slopes and also the lifts taking you to Alp D'Huez. At the top of the village there is another lift that takes you up to other ski areas.
We were a mixed ability group from beginners to experienced skiers all found the skiing great with runs aplenty.
The only thing just to bear in mind there is a steepish winding path and stairs to the chalet which can be covered with snow. There is a tractor to take luggage down but, as we all arrived at different times this was not available to us all, it can also be a bit of a bind for the smaller children carrying their skis up and down, there is however an undercover car park at the top of the chalet park ( a free pass is included and I think it was around 30 euros otherwise for the week.) and you could leave skis and ski boots in there to save the moans!
Apart from this very small thing both the chalet and area were excellent, and Joss the owner was extremely helpful (including buying a new big saucepan for our catering) and answered any queries quickly.
I would definately recommend for skiing and I'm sure would be fantastic place to stay outside of ski season also.
Chalet confortable mais d’accès difficile car nombreux escaliers couverts de glace en hiver
Le chalet est agréable et confortable mais difficile d’accès surtout avec des enfants en raison des nombreux escaliers couverts de glace en hiver
Châlet agréable mais accès très sportif
De beaux espaces pour une semaine à 16. Bien équipé, conforme à l'annonce. En revanche, l'accès pour décharger et recharger les voitures est très sportif (escaliers et petits chemins).
Een heerlijk groot en warm chalet.
We hebben hier o.a. kerst gevierd met 9 volwassenen en 6 pubers. Het was een heerlijk groot chalet met heel veel slaapkamers en een ruime woonkamer met openhaard en twee zithoeken, dus voldoende privacy. Het enige minpunt is dat je veel trappen op/afdoet om het chalet te bereiken, maar dan heb je wel een schitterend uitzicht. Dus voor oude mensen of mensen die moeilijk ter been zijn is het lastig.
