About the property

Apartment in Chamrousse, Les Deux Alpes, Isere, Rhone-Alpes, France - Ski In/Ski out

The apartment and Chamrousse 1650 is linked to Chamrousse 1750 and Chamrousse 1700 via the slopes, or via the regular loop buses, meaning that you can ski from one resort to another, and back, very easily. The main gondola is 50m from the apartment's front door, taking you to the top of the mountain and a height of 2,250m. It really is 'ski-in, ski-out'! Chamrousse is a wonderful family resort and is the French Alp's best-kept secret! It is actually the closest resort to Grenoble - much easier to get to compared to those you may have heard a little bit more about in the past. The resort was built in the forest, which means it offers outstanding panoramas of the Grenoble valley.

About Cameron Maultby

Hi there! Thanks for looking at my apartment in Chamrousse. I live in Brighton and work for a Formula E (motorsport) team in the commercial department. I love to travel and in my travels came across this apartment for sale a few years ago. I am an easy-going person who is determined to offer holiday-makers a lovely place to go skiing. I would like to build up repeat visitors from year to year, and will be continually investing in the apartment to ensure it offers people staying a fantastic experience. Please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Cameron Maultby purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Cameron Maultby chose Isere

A friend recommended I ski in Chamrousse and I never looked back. I bought this apartment as soon as I saw them being developed.

It is so easy to get to from the UK. It might be less well-known than some of the other French resorts, but it is much, much closer to Grenoble than any of those others, which makes all the difference.

Chamrousse is also alot less expensive than some of the more well-known resorts, meaning it offers outstanding value for money.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is the biggest thing.

No messing about with transfer buses once you're at the resort. The main gondola taking you to the very top of the mountain is across the road from the apartment.

There are other ski lifts directly opposite the residence as well.

You can ski from Chamrousse 1650, to 1750 and to 1700, and back, very easily, meaning you will never get bored of the runs.

Apartment Chamrousse 1650. Very clean and in an excellent location for everything

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly what we expected in an ideal location. It was extremely clean and well equipped.

The location is ideal and right opposite the gondola at Chamrousse 1650. There are a number of restaurants very close along with a supermarket, bakery and the Tourist Information Centre.

Great Trails!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during the summer for a bit of mountain biking, i was not disappointed, some awesome downhill trails of varying levels of expertise and they were working on new tracks whilst we was there and having the gondola virtually outside your front door was a great bonus. Only issue we did have was a lot of the shops was not open till mid July but Chamrousse is still developing so get in there whilst its a hidden gem. Apartment was wonderful, very clean and upto date appliances with tv, it may be a bit too close for 4 but me and a mate stayed very comfortably, the caretaker was very helpful and friendly and the owner was very easy to deal with. Regular buses into the nearest town. The views are amazing enjoyed many a sunset from a bar in the other part of Chamrousse which had English speaking staff as my french was a bit sketchy. Highly recommend this place if your after a bit downhill action but prefer a more quiet ambiance in the evenings. That said there is loads going on in Grenoble for nightlife if you dont mind a long and fairly expensive cab ride home.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cozy apartment with stunning views of the valley below.

We spent countless nights sipping wine and watching the sun-set.

The gondola is right across the road as well as the ski hire shop.

Great caretaker in the apartment block.

Totally modern apartment with dishwasher, micro-wave, DVD, LCD TV and all the utensils you can want.

A bit of a squeeze for 4 people, but ideal for 2-3 people.

Best ski holiday ever.

Will never go to a commercialized resort again, places like Chamrousse, where the french locals go skiing are the best places to go

Appartement très agréable, confortable et bien situé.

La seule chose dommage c'est que les télésièges et la piscine n'étaient pas encore ouverts.

Car: not necessary


Chamrousse 1650 is only 30 minutes from Grenoble city centre, and only 60 minutes from Grenoble airport.

From Grenoble airport, you can either take a taxi direct to Chamrousse 1650 or you can take a direct ski bus transfer. Or you can take a bus from the airport to the Grenoble train/bus station, and then a bus up the mountain from there.

If you want to hire a car, all the major global brands have outlets at Grenoble airport.


Chamrousse is also very convenient for Lyon airport, should you prefer to fly into there. Only 90 minutes from Lyon airport, it really is the most convenient resort for holiday goers in the region.

Further Details:

Chamrousse is one of the best value-for-money resorts around. Eating out and drinking in Chamrousse is alot cheaper than most of the other Alps resorts, meaning going on a ski trip doesn't have to break the bank.

The resort caters for skiers and snowboarders alike, all levels of ability and age groups will find plenty to do here. There are three interconnecting areas to enjoy - Chamrousse 1650, Chamrousse 1750 and Chamrousse 1700. You can ski from one to the other easily, on the same ski pass, or take the regular loop buses, which take about 7mins to get from one to the other.
