Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Trev and Jude



We just wanted to say thank you very much for the use of your apartment. It was perfect for our needs and it was so good to be able to prepare some home cooked meals after several weeks of being "on the road". We had amazing weather while we were there and the cycling lived up to all expectations.



Thanks also to Jeremy for a warm welcome.

Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The location of the apartment was perfect, about 5 min walk and you are in the center and it was at the foot of the Alpe d'Huez.

We were with 3 people and it is a luxury that there are two good bathrooms. The kitchen was also nice and spacious and a plus point was the washing machine. After cycling you could even wash the clothes.

There was also a storage room for the bikes. And the view of the mountains is beautiful.

We love walking and cycling, then you're in this apartment perfect. Everything you need is there and you can go anywhere. We had a fantastic holiday.

We will definitely be back in the future!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The property was very close to the bottom of the climb to L'Alpe d'Huez. Also a short walk to the supermarket and town centre.

We were four adults sharing and the sleeping arrangements worked well. It might be crowded for more adults but excellent for a large family group.

Magnifique appartement!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu la chance de louer cet appartement 1 semaine en juin 2016 pour aller faire du vélo dans les cols mythiques et d'y retourner en janvier 2017 pour faire du ski alpin à l'Alpe d'huez. Satisfaction à tous les points de vue: emplacement, tranquillité, équipements, etc.... Un gros bonus en hiver : le plancher est chauffant. Quel plaisir. Merci à Trevor pour les réponses rapides à nos questions.

Fab property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well equipped to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. Comfortable open plan, kitchen/living room and diner with plenty or room and the kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and crockery etc you would need. The view from the balcony over the mountains is fab and the balcony itself is like a little sun trap - great for a chilled out afternoon/evening.

The apartment in an amazing location. Its about a 5-10 minute walk into the centre of Bourg d'Oisans for supermarkets and restaurants. The access to some of the best cycling routes is incredible being right at the foot of Alpe d'Huez with Col du Glandon, Croix de Fer and many more right at your finger tips. Theres a number of good Via Ferrata routes within a few minutes drive and loads of walking trails. Perfect for a summer activity break with plenty of places to also relax and unwind.

We will definetly be coming back here in the future.

The Oisans are home to an extraordinary range of fauna and flora, as well as fascinating geological features. With over 800 km of marked trails, ranging from easy strolls to adventurous hikes, you can escape to the highest summits and discover scenery that is as varied as it is astonishing. The Oisans are also synonymous with legendary Tour de France mountain stages. Alpe-d’Huez, Les 2 Alpes and Bourg-d’Oisans have left their mark on this race, and are part of its living legend. The most renowned cycling races in the Alps including the famous 'Marmotte' are put on for the Oisans Trophy. Mountain biking in the Oisans plays host to spectacular mountain bike competitions such as 'Megavalanche' the longest MTB downhill race in the world, starting on the Alpe-d’Huez glacier and finishing 30 km and 2 800 metres further down, in the centre of the village of Allemont or the “Mountain of Hell”, a free ride downhill race in Les 2 Alpes.

Golf: Golf: you can play 9 holes in Alpe d Huez or Les Deux Alpes or 18 holes at numerous golf courses around Grenoble

Ski: We are at the base of Alpe d Huez, just 15 minutes drive, where there is free parking right at the base of the slopes

Les Deuz Aples is only 30 minutes drive away

From Aple d Huez its easy to ski to other beautiful villages such as OZ and Vaujany.there are a variety of pistes for all skiers,snowboarders,bladders,cross country and walkers ,advanced skiers should try the challenging blacks and snow park. This is a good resort for all abilities. In addition the wonderful ski area of Serre Chevalier is only an hour away.

There is a bus service that takes around 30 minutes up to Alpe D Huez from our village. Lift passes are available on line or from the main resort building

Want something different try ice climbing, take the cable car to pic Blanc 3300m for great views, ski the black down or return via the cable car
