Built in local stone and tastefully renovated to a very high standard, the Chalet Amelie is the perfect base for a mountain break. Located in the centre of the original village of Alpe d'Huez, the chalet is situated 100m from the nearest lift and the main tourist office, and close enough to the nearest bakery to smell the bread in the morning! The chalet has an enclosed terrace with a gate that is perfect for both breakfast and sundowners, and a large main living and dining room that stays pleasantly cool in the midday sun. There is a spacious kitchen with a full range of equipment including large dishwasher. Accommodation is spread over three floors, linked by a spiral staircase. There are three bedrooms downstairs (2 doubles and a single) and four bedrooms upstairs (3 twins and a single). All the bedrooms have ensuite shower, and all except the downstairs single have an ensuite toilet too. For families with babies or small children there is also a small bath in room 7 upstairs. Free wi-fi is included.

Alpe d'Huez - where to begin? Known for good reason as the 'île au soleil' (the island in the sun) this fantastic resort sits at 1800m on south facing slopes, with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. A cycling mecca, Alpe d'Huez is world famous for its links to the Tour de France, and the legendary 21 bends (13.8 km with 1120m vertical ascent), but it also boasts +200km of moutainbike trails and hosts the Megavalanche Enduro MTB event. But it's not just about bikes - there is also a huge sports centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, climbing, ice-skating, riding, paragliding, walking, golf, clay-pigeon shooting, via ferrata...or you can even just relax and work on a tan! There are a host of great places to eat out (this is France after all) and a lively nightlife for those who want it. Nearby attractions include canyoning and rafting in the valley, the Ecrins National Park and summer skiing 35km away in Les Deux Alpes - one week really just isn't enough!
