Why Jude and Trevor chose Alpe d'Huez area

We brought this apartment in 2010 after skiing in this area for 5 years and fell in love with the area so started looking around for

something to buy , we saw this property and immediatley fell in love with it , with the fantastic views all around through the interesting shaped windows , 6 weeks later we were moving in , it wasn,t until after we brought the apartment that we decided to rent,to let others enjoy this unique place

Guestbook comments from the owner

Many thanks yes we did – we thought the apartment was very nice and in a good location – it had lovely views! The surrounding area was stunning even without the snow – certainly breathtaking. Being in France is always a pleasure – nice food, wine & shopping!



Thank you very much – it was a good prize and we have experienced an area we may never have visited.

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.

Great Appartment - Ideal for Cycling or Skiing

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment whilst on a cycling holiday and it was fantastic. The location is excellent - 2 minutes ride from the start the of Alp D'Huez climb and 5 minutes walk in to the center of Bourg.

The apartment is comfortable and well furnished with excellent wi-fi. The views are stunning. I would be more than happy to stay here again for a cycling or Ski trip

Picture postcard stuff!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a great location, it's just like living in a postcard and we wished we had more time here! The pictures on the website looked great and the reality was even better. The kitchen was well equipped and there was ample room for the four of us - having two bathrooms was a bonus with teenage girls! The location is not just close enough to town to walk to shops, but by being in the other side of the river on the way up Alpe d'Huez, it gives the place a more rural feel! We hope to return and stay longer next time. We were here in early autumn and had great weather, I can imagine that in winter it would also be nice. Thank you Trevor and Jude for sharing your lovely holiday home, you are so lucky!

Clean, spacious, cosy, stunning view

  • 5 of 5

I already recommended this great apartment to a view friends. A perfect starting point for some good cycling trips. Right at the start of the Dutch Alpe d'HuZes and the cyclo La Marmotte, which I road both this year.

Besides the good location with the stunning views, the apartment was clean and spacious.

Great Place to stay..

  • 4 of 5

great location, tucked nicely away from the road, with spectacular views. A stones throw from the bottom of the Alpe D'hueze. A short walk to the village.

Well maintained, clean and modern with great communication form the owners.

Fantastic apartment in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great apartment in a perfect location for cycling. Good size balcony and garden area. Apartment in excellent condition and within easy walking distance of supermarket and town centre.

Just a couple of suggestions for extra equipment/facilities: towels to be provided with linen, bath mats, deck chairs & sun loungers, knife sharpener, use of washing machine, clothes drier.

I would definitely recommend the apartment to others, and would be keen to return there another year.

Car: recommended

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
