About the property

Chalet in Alpe D'Huez, Rhone-Alpes, France - Beside Ski Lift With Stunning Mountain Views

Chalet Oz is a self-catered chalet located in the Oz en Oisans resort in the heart of the French Alps. A button lift is located just 50m from the chalet giving a ski in/ski out location. Oz is part of the Grandes Rousses/Alpe d’Huez ski area which is one of the largest resorts in the Alps. The ski area has more than 175km of pistes and plenty of off-piste routes for the more experienced skier. Two Gondolas provide rapid access from Oz to the main resort area with queues a rarity. There are a number of aspects that make Oz the perfect resort for families with children. There are no cars in the main resort area. The skiing in Oz itself is self-contained. A carpet lift and 2 button lifts is ideal for children as they start to learn and develop their skills. Access to the high mountain is not possible without taking one of the gondolas. For smaller children there is a creche, La Petite d’Oz in the resort, which takes children from 6 months up to 6 years.

About Niamh Jennings

Hi. We live in Dublin and have 3 children. We've really enjoyed our ski chalet in Oz over the last 4 years. In particular, we've enjoyed getting to know some of the friendly locals, exploring some of the off piste routes around Alpe d'Huez, and of course seeing the kids progress from the carpet to reds and blacks.

Niamh Jennings purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Niamh Jennings chose Oz

We love Oz for the following reasons: Great links to fantastic Alpe d'Huex ski area. Safe, family friendly resort for the kids. Chalet location is right beside the slopes. No need for buses or long walk to the lift. Chalet is big enough for 2 families. We enjoy bringing our friends. Friendly locals from bar staff, ski instructors to ski hire staff. Some our now good friends who we look forward to meeting year after year. Lift queues are a rarity in Oz. 2 gondolas provide rapid access to the high mountains.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalet is just 50m from the ski lifts with stairs direct from the chalet door to the piste. It is also right beside the Moontain Hotel and a short walk to the village for Apres ski. There is also a public swimming pool in the Crystal hotel.

Superb Ski Chalet In Alpe D'Huez / Oz-En-Oisans Resort
average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

Great ski chalet very well set up for family skiing.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is located a short walk down from the main part of Oz En oisans ski station, in a small group of other chalets. There is also a button lift which can take you up to the main resort (opens just before 9 am). There is good accommodation for a couple of families (we had 4 adults and 4 kids) with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The only thing we could have done with was a snow shovel- but we borrowed one from next door anyway - and we were blessed with far more snow than would normally be expected in December.

Sandrine, who is based in a local village, looks after the chalet for the owners, and was very friendly and welcoming and could not have been more helpful.

Overall we would thoroughly recommend this chalet, and Oz more generally, as a great place for a family ski holiday.

A fabulous chalet in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as two families and the chalet was ideal. It was well equipped and the information given by the owners was spot on.

We would not hesitate to stay in Oz en Oisans or this chalet again in the future.

Lovely, well-equipped ski chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic week at the chalet in Oz-En-Oisans, despite the fact that the snow was somewhat reluctant. The chalet is really homely as well as being spacious enough - we were a group of five adults and three children and fit very comfortably. It was really well-equipped in terms of utensils and equipment generally. Everything was clean and well-looked after. Couldn't have asked for anything more from the property and will definitely be hoping to return.

The resort itself is small and friendly and gives great access to the bigger Grande Domaine skiing area - my children were beginners and because of the lack of snow their skiing was a bit limited but there was enough to get them started and it's clear that if the heavens had done their bit and dumped loads of the white stuff then it would have been perfect.
