Vaujany is a rare and special place: a small and still largely unspoilt farming village that is linked into a big, modern lift system – courtesy of neighbouring Alpe d’Huez.

If you like your skiing action-packed but your evenings quiet, it fits the bill perfectly.

Vaujany suits all standards of skier and rider and is particularly good for families with small children.

The transfer can be as quick as 50 minutes from Grenoble airport, situated north-west of the city, is the ideal jumping-off point for exploring resorts both large and small in the Dauphiné region.

Lyon airport is a little further but still only 1 hour 20 minutes to the apartment.

A spacious ski and summer self-catering apartment in Vaujany, a traditional pretty French village with huge character and fantastic facilities. Only 100 m to the lift. Shops, restaurants, ski school are also within a short walk. Three large sized bedrooms which can accommodate up to 6 people. With a large secured garage (great for bicycles) below the apartment and another ski boot room. Our ski and summer apartment has been furnished for our own use, so it is of a very high standard and has all the comfort you would expect from home. Premium spot at the front 1st floor, south west facing with a full 180 degree balcony, outstanding views of the La Fare waterfall and right down into the valley. Meet & Greet by a great local English (French speaking) family. DVD, CD Library, SAT TV English, German,French TV.

Skiing Holiday: With the main lift taking 7 min to reach the top and being just 150 m from it, the ski apartment is an ideal location. There are over 220 km of managed pistes which link 8 villages. The highest peak is 3330 m and with 700 snow cannons there is snow sure skiing. The high capacity cable car which holds 160 people is only 150 m from ski apartment. It is fast and vast so it makes queuing rare. Vaujany offers excellent ski school facilities, especially for children and there is also an award winning crèche which again is just 100 years away (don't forget your red book). Other winter sport activities include; cross country skiing, ice skating, ice climbing, tobogganing and heli-skiing.

Summer holiday: Vaujany in the summer is an ideal if you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful base to explore the Oisan Mountains. Vaujany has an excellent variety of marked walking trails and refugees to stay. It is also famous for mountain biking and has some fun and challenging trails. The lift system is open during July and August. If you enjoy road biking that Vaujany is the place to be (it is situated about 15mins drive from Bourg d'Oisans) - you could even try the infamous Marmotte climb. There are lots of exciting summer sports to try including; white water rafting, climbing, fishing, paragliding, tennis, outdoor swimming, golf, summer tobogganing are just a few. With an abundance of out door swimming pools, lakes, tree climbing parks its ideal for children of all ages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Pip,

I just wanted to thank you very much for recommending Garry's apartment to us. We had a fabulous week - the accommodation was really excellent - the beds were comfortable and the extra space made such a difference.

The way Easter falls next year might make it difficult for us to return to Vaujany next year but when we do return, we will definitely look at booking Garry's apartment again

Le Jardin Alpin appt A23

  • 5 of 5

This is a an absolutely fabulous appartment. From the very start things went well with good communcations via email, well-organised instructions and flexibility with the key handover (our flight was delayed). The location of the appartment was perfect as I had 5 children to get togged up and off to ski lessons for 9am - no problem, just walk couple hundred metres and onto the lift direct to the ESF. Easy! The appartment is spacious, attractive, with spectacular views on to the mountains, huge balcony and nicely decorated. It is well-equipped with great kitchen etc. We enjoyed chilling out in the evening in the living area and there were a huge no of DVD's to choose from, X Box and a very good selection of family board games. This is by far the nicest appartment we have ever stayed in and we very much hope to return. Wonderful!

Lovely appartment and village

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the Larners for a fabulous week in their beautiful appartment this February. So practical and convenient to get onto the telegraphique and to ski school start. There are many thoughtful details - lots of DVD's for all age ranges, Sky, X-Box- for our party of 5 children ranging from 7-13 yrs very spacious, especially the twin room. Racks to dry wet equipment. Lots of nice aesthetic touches so really pleasant to return to after hard days skiing and relax in. Well-equipped compact kitchen which made it easy to cater for all well. Spacious balconies with fantastic views. The nicest appartment we have stayed in skiing so far. We are desperate to return next year. Many thanks.

Lovely apartment, lovely location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Vaujany. There were 5 of us in our group and the apartment was just right. We were met by Hannah who showed us how everything worked and tried to be as helpful as possible even though it was her first day! The views towards the mountains are amazing and the facilities in the apartment are practical and unfussy. We had everything we needed and it was clean and cosy. All the beds were comfy and the storage was good. The lock up downstairs was great for ski storage although there was minimal snow whilst we were there. The lift access to all the amenities was great. Garry's recommendations as to where to eat and ski hire served us very well, in fact everyone we met was delightful and very helpful with our limited French. The only reason we can't give this review 5 stars is that the wifi and tv were erratic. We could only get Sky News and Pick channels on the tv and the wifi kept dropping out. The best reception was in the bathroom! Although this was frustrating for my teenage sons, it gave us the opportunity to talk more and play the assortment of games that were supplied. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and will hopefully book again soon. Thank you.

Our 3rd stay here. The apartment is perfectly located, stunning views of the waterfall, nice quiet part if the village but only a few minutes from all bars/ shops etc.

We have had 3 summer stays, fantastic cycling and walking, need to try the skiing next!

Apartment is really well equipped, everything you could need, a home from home. Very clean and well cared for, would definitely recommend!

50 min transfer from Grenoble airport, Vaujany is a small traditional French village in the beautiful Osian Mountains. It is one of the five villages which make up the Les Grandes Rousses ski domain better know as the Alpe D'Huez ski area. It is a family friendly resort and has been awarded with the 'famille plus' resort award. There are a number of excellent restaurants and good bars within walking distance to our ski, summer apartment. New for 2012, check out, a brand new complex with a four lane bowling alley, restaurants, crèche and Olympic size indoor ice skating rink. There is an excellent public swimming pool (with slide, gym sauna), ice skating rink and some superb tennis courts (summer only). There are a number of excellent ski schools in the winter and fantastic cycling, walking and mountain biking trails in the summer. It is a great base to reach to explore the Oisans Mountains enjoy the infamous Tour de France cycle climbs. The area is surrounded by the Ecrin national park. Allemond 10 min has a great outdoor swimming pool, huge lake for all water sports. Bourg D'Oisans is about a 15 min.

Other Activities: White water rafting

Ski: The story of Vaujany is the stuff of fairy tales. In the 1980s, a hydro-electric scheme was developed lower down the valley and the village was awarded a huge amount of compensation. The villagers decided to purchase a state-of-the art 160-person cable car and built a link with one of France's biggest ski areas, Alpe d'Huez. It was the making of a perfect ski resort. Visitors can now enjoy the laid back pace of life in Vaujany, while taking advantage of a huge skiing domain of almost 225 km, served by some 85 lifts. A separate gondola provides alternative access via Vaujany's own ski area, Montfrais.

In addition to the vast array of winter sports on offer Vaujany can also a fun and relaxing holiday. For example you can enjoy a truly wonderful ‘apres-ski’ in the superb Leisure Centre with its 25 m swimming pool, gym and sauna.

There are some great shops, restaurants and bars in Vaujany which can be access via the unique ‘covered’ escalator which the village now boast a Olympic ice skating rink and bowling alley
