About Property Manager

We are a family run ski company called Vaujany Ski Co Ltd that operate solely in Vaujany. The lovely properties are just one of many properties that we market in Vaujany on behalf of UK owners. Although we are based in the UK we spend a lot of time in Vaujany and have a great knowledge of the resort and how to make the best of the area both in the Winter and the Summer. We can assist with travel transfers, ski hire, ski passes, bike hire, restaurants, food delivery and of course where to ski or ride and when! Feel free to contact us via email or phone for any questions about the property or the resort.

Property Manager purchased this Chalet in 2008

Why Property Manager chose Vaujany

Vaujany is the perfect Alpine Winter and Summer destination: it's a superbly authentic village with quaint old farm buildings nestled in with bars, restaurants and fantastic modern leisure facilities. The lift system is second to none and boasts the fastest elevation gain in the whole resort. That means whether you are ski-ing or mountain biking you can be at the top of the mountain within a few minutes of getting on the super fast 160 man gondola. Throw in the world class ski-ing both on pistes and off piste and its no wonder that Vaujany is becoming the go to place for those in the know. The village itself is linked from top to bottom by a series of lifts and escalators so getting around is easy and you won't need a car when you are here.

What makes this Chalet unique

The properties are located in the development called Le Jardin Alpin which is just 100 Metres from the ski station, ski school, shops, restaurants and leisure centre. Leave the chalets and two minutes walk later you will be on the lift system and heading up to 2800m to tackle one of the numerous ski runs the resort has to offer. The village itself has recently invested a huge amount of money into the leisure facilities including a superb leisure centre, swimming pool, olympic size ice-skating rink, bowling alley and all of this is just a few minutes walk away from the property.

                                                              Chalet Opal was ideal for us, providing lots of space, well-equipped and in a good location for accessing the lifts and the mid area of the resort for bars, atm etc. Very good customer service from all those involved during the booking and on site. Big thanks to Pip for having the chalet ready for us despite our early arrival. Very good service also from Skiset for equipment hire.

                                                              Best restaurant we found in the village was Le Stou, above the ice rink. Where we were also lucky enough to see the local Vaujany team win a thrilling ice hockey match. Best restaurant we found on the mountain was the Solarium. Great tartiflette.

                                                              Would thoroughly recommend this chalet.

                                                              Hi Phil,

                                                              Thankyou for your review, we really appreciate it. Glad you had a great holiday- the Vaujany Ice-hockey team are doing really rather well at the moment!! Thanks again and hope you can come out to Vaujany again sometime Summer or Winter.

                                                              Many thanks Rob and Tash - Vaujany Ski Company

                                                              Good basic family chalet

                                                              Cindy H.

                                                              The house was in a good location for the ski lifts and access to the shops. We stayed as a family of 3 couples, one couple staying on each floor with a their own bathroom. Our daughter and fiance had the top floor as they were the most agile to manage the step ladder up to that level! You could hear every word from one floor to the other, which if you weren’t family could have been awkward. The fire was lovely to light each evening and the underfloor heating was adequate. Our only criticism was that the lounge area comprised a sofa that was frankly worn out and two tub chairs that were far from comfortable, a shame as we spent most evenings in enjoying the fabulous selection of dvds .

                                                              The kitchen was perfect and the dishwasher a godsend.

                                                              The last night we had pizzas from the take away in the shopping centre which were really good, though do get your order in early.

                                                              Wonderfull 1 week stay during new year's day 2016

                                                              Loic L.-

                                                              Honestly, this was a perfect stay for us despite the lack of snow,

                                                              The house was perfectly sized for the 4 famillies.

                                                              we have appreciated a lot all accomodations and the way it is organized,

                                                              I mean enter the garage to drop the ski stuff, shoe dryer was amazing even not so usefull with this weather ;-)

                                                              We appreciate a lot the living room the DVDs to improve our english ;-).

                                                              The house was perfectly located to access the Ski Lifts direcltly connected to Alpe d'huez Grand Domaine.

                                                              The only thing that we thought

                                                              it would be good to aquire a raclette device (don't know how to name it).

                                                              I definitely recommend and will certainly come again there.

                                                              The property was just as listed and we were delighted with it's position and facilities. The chalet was well equipped and the layout was perfect for a mixture af children and adults. The property was clean and well maintained. We received good customer service which made the holiday the treat I hoped it would be.

                                                              Great Chalet in fantastic location

                                                              Fantastic chalet, we really enjoyed our stay. We were a family of eight including two grandparents and two young children. The chalet was perfect with the large living area meaning that we could all live in the same space whether that was sitting on the balcony watching the skiiers come down La Fare run or by the huge fireplace or sat at the big dining table. The chalet is right next to the ski lift so only a short walk for the kids which was appreciated. All in all a fab chalet at great price and we will definitely be back next year. Thanks!
