A fantastic time, we really enjoyed it! We got a very good deal as we booked a couple of weeks before, so couldn’t be picky – but actually there was nothing to be picky about!

With a transfer time of around 2 hours, Alpe d’Huez is very accessible from Grenoble airport. Established in 1936, it was the first resort in France to be installed with a fully operational ski lift. The resort lies in the Grandes Rousses Massif domain and it is partnered by the smaller mountain villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and La Garde, all of which are connected by a free transport system. The slopes are mainly south facing and as a result the area, known as “L’ile ...
Alpe d’Huez has had sun and snow galore since 1936. And with a whopping 52km of greens, this is an excellent place for beginners. The easiest skiing is above the village and Les Bergers and there are plenty of wide open runs underneath the DMC gondola, many being ‘beginners only’ so you can learn without too much traffic. If you’re feeling confident, try some of the blue runs coming down from the main mountain and the signal sector back into Alpe d’Huez. There is a really impressive selection of runs for ...
If you like live music, try the Underground in Vieil Alpe, which combines a pleasant atmosphere with bands playing most nights. Smithys tavern is a proven success in the neighbouring resort of Les Deux Alpes and the Smithy’s in Alpe D’Huez has drinks promotions and healthy portions of Tex-Mex to match. If you can’t bear to miss an important game whilst in France then The Sports Bar is the best spot to watch live sports. L’igloo is the place to go if you want to party late into the night. Alpe d’huez has a...

"Fantastic family holiday"

4/ out of 5
A fantastic time, we really enjoyed it! We got a very good deal as we booked a couple of weeks before, so couldn’t be picky – but actually there was nothing to be picky about! It’s a very nice hotel, not too big and everyone seemed friendly. The rooms were fine and the food was great, there was plenty of it and the children ate everything. Access to the ski area was via one of those yoghurt pot things and took about 15 minutes to get up there (in more snow you could probably just jump on the slope). Getting back was fine as you can just ski. The only drawback was that the Wi-Fi was really bad.
