The chalet is located at 1550m altitude in the authentic mountain village of Villard Reculas in the heart of Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine Ski ', one of the best ski and snowboard areas in the French Alps. The chalet is located in the village and has "ski-in / ski-out", so from your chalet you can directly on the skis and you have access to the entire ski area. From the chalet you have a beautiful view of the glaciers and peaks of the Oisans. The chalet is open all year, including holidays in the low season.

Chalet rouge ou Blanc was completely restored in 2016 and redecorated opting for quality, luxury and comfort. The chalet is 150 m2 and all amenities, including free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV, Apple TV and stereo Bluetooth so you from your ipad or phone can play your own music.

About Simone Brand and Gerrit van Brakel

We are Simone Brand and Gerrit van Brakel, from the Netherlands. We have bought this chalet to enjoy winter sports and holidays in spring, summer and autumn (because Villard Reculas is lovely in all seasons!) together with our children Isa (9 years) and Ole (6 years) and family and friends.

We enjoy skiing in this great skiing area, hiking, beautiful views, the large number of sunny days, the peace, the beautiful nature, picking blueberries and raspberries in the mountains and all excursions in the area (the pool of Bourg d'Oisans is our children's favourite!). And if the kids are bigger than we will certainly go cycling. We also enjoy this fine home, a place to eat and to be together, cooking in the nice kitchen, or playing a game on the table that was specially designed for this house.

In 2016 we bought this house and completely renovated the inside. In spring 2017 we’ll apply the finishing touches. We’ll then create large terraces around the house. We also dream of a pizza oven, hot tub or Jacuzzi and sauna, and we want to change the exterior; apply more wood and change the colour. We are going to realize all these plans step by step in the coming years.

We will happily rent out the house to you, and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do. We hope that it will be your home for your holiday!

Why Simone Brand and Gerrit van Brakel chose Villard-Reculas

This house is in a unique spot in the heart of the Alpe d'Huez ski area, right on the slopes. The house has a large garden (1250m2). Villard Reculas is a small picturesque village, a really nice place to be and to enjoy each other, the views and the tranquility. We love to spend our holidays here, together with friends and family. Children play well together and the adults enjoy themselves too.

The house has 5 bedrooms, which makes a warm welcome for anyone, anytime. Only 20 minutes away is Bourg d'Oisans, a town with cozy restaurants, a large supermarket and a nice swimming pool with water slides. In the summer you can go hiking, cycling, mountain biking, rafting, to the pool.

Magnifique châlet dans un village au calme. Vues imprenables sur les montagnes.

  • 4 of 5

Châlet spacieux, entièrement rénové, très confortable , alliant ,avec bonheur, modernité et rusticité. Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine de vacances. Villard-Reculas est resté un village calme où l'accueil est chaleureux. Idéalement situé, à quelques minutes de l'Alpe d'Huez (si vous osez vous confesser....vous comprendrez sur place)et proche de nombreux endroits à visiter. Nous recommandons particulièrement la vallée de la Bérarde, 27km de route éblouissante et point de départ de randonnées accessibles aux familles avec enfants (nous sommes montés au Chatelleret, vue exceptionnelle sur le sommet de la Meije).Les remontées mécaniques de l'Alpe dHuez et des Deux Alpes permettent d'accéder, sans effort, à la haute de se croire, l'espace de quelques heures, de vrais alpinistes ! Pour les plus téméraires, tous les sports extrêmes sont à portée de main. Après l'effort, de délicieux plats vous attendent dans les restaurants.Nous recommandons la Bergerie (à Villard-Reculas) et le Diable au Coeur (restaurant panoramique aux Deux Alpes). A Villard-Reculas, allez à l'épicerie, le propriétaire est plein d'humour. Nous espérons retourner rapidement au Châlet Rouge, peut-être en hiver pour admirer la montagne enneigée.

Chaleur et Compfort: Impecable!

  • 5 of 5

(Nederlands ; zie hierna)D'abord pour les amis français: c’est un chalet formidable pour 12 personnes (14 même ; s'il y a des enfants pas trop grands)! Les propriétaires (Simone et Gerrit) ont très bien réussis d’y en faire un endroit de chaleur, bien décoré, des bons lits, très complet : la cuisine, lave-linge, sèche-linge, plusieurs salles des bains, Wi-Fi, Apple-TV (Netflix!). La région est super pour faire du ski jusqu’ au mois d’avril et après pour monter en vélo ou au pied (Alpe d’Huez, etcetera!). Il n’y a pas de Yeti ou le Discothèque, mais personne ne veux sortir une maison si agréable si tu es assis devant le cheminé (bois) avec ton bon vin ‘Rouge ou Blanc’ et ta musique de ton Play-liste. Finalement : let lits sont très bons ! Matelasses dures, mais : pour la première fois dans très long temps je suis me réveillée sans mal au dos ! Ça, je ne peux même pas dire quand je suis chez moi.

En dan nu voor de Nederlandssprekend geïnteresseerden: een absolute aanrader dit chalet voor 12 tot 14 personen. Gerrit en Simone hebben het chalet opgeknapt en ingericht dat het in hun ogen het perfecte vakantie-verblijf is. Warm, comfortabel, zeer compleet. (onder andere meerdere badkamers, compleet uitgeruste keuken, wasmachine èn droger, netflix, houtkachel) In de winter ski-out, ski-in. Kortom: TOP! (hele jaar door overigens: schitterend gebied!)

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Rouge ou Blanc is a home away from home. We stayed here with 3 families for a week of skiing and relaxing. The chalet is roomy and has all of the comforts you have at home (we especially liked the wonderfull kitchen). We loved the big table where we could all sit together and the room with the bedbunks was especially liked by our kids. The direct connection to the ski-in is great, with only a few minutes to the first lift. Also going into town is just matter of walking two turns downhill. All in all we would love to return again to enjoy a holiday in chalet Rouge ou Blanc.

Sfeervol en zeer comfortabel chalet

  • 5 of 5

Een heerlijk verblijf gehad in dit sfeervolle en zeer comfortabele chalet in Villard Reculas, een rustiek Frans bergdorpje op nog geen uur rijden van Grenoble.

Het chalet heeft een erg fijne en goed uitgeruste keuken, een prachtige eettafel waar we met z'n allen makkelijk aan konden zitten, lekkere brede bedden met fijne dekbedden en een sfeervol ingerichte woonkamer met houtkachel en dito slaapkamers. Ook het grote skihok en droogrek op de overloop waren erg handig voor alle skispullen.

De omgeving is prachtig, ook voor mensen die niet gaan skiën. Een perfecte plek voor meerdere gezinnen met kinderen, mede vanwege de ski-in (en -out), waar de kinderen na de skiles gemakkelijk zelf naar toe kunnen skiën. We komen hier zeker nog een keer terug. Mogelijk ook in de zomer, want ook dan is het hier naar ons idee goed vertoeven.

Beautifully modernised and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Only positive feedback this time. The owners visibly put considerable effort into renovating this spacious chalet up to pretty luxurious standards. Modern facilities such as a fully equipped kitchen, relaxing living area and a bath in one of the bathrooms, made some of us want to stay home rather than head out on the slopes. ;) These slopes are by the way pretty much at the doorstep so skiing (and also hiking) in and out of the house is possible. It was my first but certainly not my last visit to this house and this area!

Wow! This chalet has it all

  • 5 of 5

This amzing chalet is freshly decorated and located on the perfect spot for a skiing holiday with family and friends. Plenty of space for everyone and a cute bedroom where the kids loved to sleep. With the open plan fully equipped kitchen, we didn't mind cooking. We spent a lovely week and this is definitely a place to come back to.
