About the property

Chalet Clementine's offers Stunning views of the Belledonne Mountains in one of the best skiing, and hiking areas of the Alps. Free WiFi

The chalet is part of an exclusive development of 33 detached chalets tucked away in a quiet corner of Oz en Oisans, part of Alpe d'Huez ski resort, at 1350 metres. There is an entrance hall on the first floor with ski and boot rack and plenty of hooks to hang your coats. This leads to a large open plan room with fireplace. Two patio doors lead onto a balcony which we have extended to run around two sides of the chalet and offers a great space to sit, with wonderful uninterrupted mountain views. At the other end of the room is a large dining table seating 10. Round the corner there is a kitchen from which double patio doors provide another access to the extended balcony which has outdoor seating and a table which seats six comfortably and offers more wonderful views. On the ground floor are three bedrooms and from the lounge, steps lead to a fourth mezzanine bedroom, with restricted height at one end. The resort of Oz en Oisans, which is part of L'Alpe Duez Grande Domain is particularly suited to families, with most of the village pedestrianized and peaceful. The chalet is perfect for both winter and summer holidays. Oz en Oisans is a quiet resort, but with a fast ski lift connection to Alpe d'Huez and Vaujany offers great access and a huge ski area to explore. in the summer during July and august the resort of Oz en Oisans comes alive again providing a fantastic summer family experience.

About Gary Smith (

About the owners

We are an English couple who have been skiing in and around Oz for over ten years.

We purchased Chalet Clementine in 2014 with the aim to provide our guests a luxury self catering chalet for them to relax and enjoy a comfortable stay in the resort, whilst enjoying all the outdoor activities Oz en Oisans and the surrounding area of Alpe d'Huez Grand Domain have to offer.

We spend the winter and summer seasons in Oz, so we will normally be onsite to personally welcome our guests. When required we use the services of a local multilingual person to greet our guests out of season. This is the only rental property we own in France so it is very much a labour of love.

We have extensively upgraded the furnishings and kitchen in the summer of 2014, installed stairs to access the drag lift in 2015 and extended the balcony in 2016 and plan further improvements to the mezzanine area in 2018.

Gary Smith ( purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Gary Smith ( chose Oz

We have four children who love the outdoor life Oz en Oisans offers, whether it is winter sports or summer activities. The Oz / Alpe d'Heuze resort provide the perfect backdrop for a mountain holiday. Alpe d'Heuz is large enough to offer all the skiing terrain you need but Oz is small enough to retain a relaxing safe family atmosphere.

Oz has a supermarket, restaurants, sports shops, bars, a heated indoor swimming pool and a spa area with whirlpool, sauna and steam room, a climbing wall and an outdoor ice-rink in the winter.

Oz is a charming family resort nestled at 1350m in the heart of Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine Ski, Oz has all the charm and authenticity of a family resort.

We hope you enjoy staying at our chalet as much as we do living in Oz.

What makes this chalet unique

The property is located only 20m from the Clos du Pre drag lift, which can now be accessed by a short flight of steps, so it is a virtually ski in ski out location. It is close to the Moontain Hotel which has a bar and restaurant and only a short distance to the resort centre where you can find a supermarket, more bars, restaurants and shops.

It is not suitable for the elderly or anybody with mobility restrictions, but is perfect for families who want to be based in a safe environment, offering stunning views and facilities to provide both a little apres ski and home family comfort.

We allowed our children to spend most of their time on the baby slopes and toboggan run with minimal supervision both during the day and early evening.

Vehicle access terminates at the edge of the village, so the resort is essentially pedestrian only.

Perfect chalet in beautiful ski village

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful and memorable week’s skiing, staying in Oz in the idyllic Chalet Clementine. Gary and Jan we’re so generous with their time and hospitality upon arrival. They couldn’t do enough to help. The chalet was perfect! Clean, spacious, comfortable, lovely and warm, picturesque and next to the slopes! Had a fantastic week and could not recommend highly enough!

Beautiful chalet in Oz en Oisans

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?....We stayed in Chalet Clementine over the New Year and had the most fantastic time.

From our initial booking Gary & Jan have been so helpful and always provided fully comprehensive answers to my endless questions. No question ever seemed too much trouble to answer. Gary gave advice on ski passes, transfers, ski name it, he helped us out with it. We booked everything through his recommendations, and it all worked out perfectly.

Gary met us on arrival and showed us around the chalet, telling us how various things worked etc. He then took us all up into the village and showed us where the supermarket was, various restaurants, the tourist info and ski hire etc.

We were 2 families of 4, and found the chalet was great for us. It is so beautifully presented and has such lovely homely touches. It feels so warm & cosy too; especially with the fabulous log fire roaring away. (Logs were provided free by the owners) The cupboards in the kitchen are really well stocked and have every type of pot/pan/dish/kitchen appliance you could possibly need. We cooked ourselves and ate in nearly every night, and sat round the huge dining table to eat our meals.

There were board games, a great selection of DVD's and books, TV with English channels, if we needed them. To be fair though after a tiring day of skiing and hearty meal, we were in bed for 9 exhausted! Whilst on the subject of beds;,all 4 bedrooms were lovely. Really comfy beds.They all had 2 single beds, a wardrobe and bedside cabinets.

There was a large cupboard in the entrance hall which we found handy for ski boots and ski's, and plenty of coat hanging.

The location of the chalet is just fantastic, the view from the chalet has uninterrupted views of mountains. Waking up and looking out to that scenery was breathtaking.

We found Oz was a perfect base for us, a quieter village away from the larger resort of Alpe D'huez, yet a 15 minute gondola ride and you could access the huge ski areas of Alpe D'Huez. Oz and Vaujaney.

For us, the Alpe D'Huez ski area was the best resort we have ever skied in. It literally catered for everyone. I was happy skiing all day on the lovely wide gentle green and blue slopes, whilst my boys were off on the red and black runs.Snowfall was incredible.

I can highly recommend this chalet, it really was just a perfect holiday in a beautiful area and without doubt we will be back. Thank you so much Gary & Jan for letting us stay in your amazing home.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 2nd visit to Oz and the 1st to Chalet Clementine. We are a group of mixed cyclists who have a bucket list of Cols to explore and demand a high standard in accommodation in our advancing years. Chalet Clementine and the resort of Oz are highly recommended for those wanting a quiet relaxing summer holiday in a beautiful tranquil setting with truly stunning views. Chalet Clementine is as described. Comfortable, clean and very well equipped with everything necessary for an enjoyable stay. Particular attention to small details make this chalet stand out above others we have used.The hosts, Gary and Jan, were proactive and very responsive to answering questions before our arrival, they were on site to welcome us, help us with a few questions during our stay and bid us farewell at departure. They helped make our stay that much more enjoyable.

We would recommend this chalet to anybody wanting a bit of comfort at the end of an active day.

Good house in area with beautifull nature

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay in OZ. Beautifull view from the house. Good possibilities for walking direct from the house. For example with the many cable routes. We had also enough other things to do in villages nearby. It takes 10 minutes with the car to go down the mountain, but then its possible to choose several directions to explore. It was a place of rest. In the morning we walked to the bakery to buy bread. In the evening we went swimming for free in the hotel in OZ. Little remark, you have to take four stairs to the house each time, but you get used to it :)

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at chalet Clementine for 12 days of summer holidays.

Gary welcomed us really nice and gave us a great introduction into the chalet. He has explained to us the individual functions. He was always available when we needed him. The chalet has everything you need. In the area there are many leisure activities.

From the first moment we were speechless of the view and the nature. It was amazing. A great region with great people and a great host.

We will come back. That's for sure. Thanks for all Gary.

Andre and family

Just lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you see and read about this gorgeous chalet is what you get then...a lot more than you expected. It was clean and very comfortable. We were really delighted to see it 'for real' on arrival and found absolutely everything we needed.

The description was accurate about the location, layout and facilities. We were very lucky to have had a beautiful week of sunshine and spent every afternoon outside on the veranda. The chalet was clean and very well maintained. The owners, Gary and Jan, met us from our transfer from Grenoble, they showed us around the chalet and made sure we knew where to buy our provisions and where best to eat out.

I would recommend this chalet to anyone that I know and hope if you are reading this you will trust that it is value for money.
