Getting to Bourg and Alpe d'Huez: The 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.

We had a very good holiday, the house was warm and very comfortable with everything you could need and even little ones were catered for with cot, highchair, stair gate and plastic dishes and cutlery! A washing machine would have been useful. The property was clean and well maintained and there was plenty of room for 10 people. Location was superb. Great skiing in Alpe D'Huez, well worth the 21 bends there and back each day. Tony was very helpful and provided excellent customer service. I would certainly recommend this property to a relative or friend.
G from London
De perfecte locatie voor wie met de fiets of te voet de omliggende bergen wil verkennen. Huis met alle voorzieningen en mooie grote tuin in het centrum van Bourg en op 4km van de voet van Alpe d'Huez.
Super house. Great cycling. Very easy hosts. Everything was great. Would definitely come again
Fabulous Holiday. Fantastic House. Great Location
We stayed at La Maison de la Tour for a cycling holiday and had the best time. The house is spacious, clean, really well equipped and in the best spot imaginable. We had already booked when we saw the negative review left by another guest and called Nat & Tony straight away. When we heard what had happened we felt very sorry for them. All we can say is that we have re-booked and would come back every year if we could! Thanks again for a wonderful stay!
Super Cycling Holiday
Booked late for a September cycling holiday near the 21 bends and got lucky! This place is the perfect base for cycling the area and I would guess skiing in the winter as well. (Alpe d'Heuz is just 20 mins up the hill). We could store the bikes securely at the end of a hard days ride and chill out in the garden with a cold beer enjoying the fabulous views. We had one problem with the gas, phoned the owners and within the hour 'Howard' appeared and helped us change the bottle. I would definitely recommend this place for any kind of cycling/skiing group, or just for a truly relaxing break!
Perfect vacation home for a family
Our family stayed here for our ski vacation this year. It is the first time we have been out of resort and loved every minute. The house is perfect. Large, with great facilities for a family to get together for meals and chilling out after a hard day on the slopes. The hot water lasted forever and the house was so warm and toasty we didn’t want to leave in the morning! Thanks to Nat & Tony who answered all our questions and helped make our stay a memorable one. We will be back next year!
