We had a really good week – our apartment had a fantastic view straight onto the slopes and was warm, clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was great for the 3 of us but would have been a bit of a squash for 4 – it had a bunk bed when we went in and then 2 chairs that turned into beds.
We did a mix of cooking for ourselves and eating out, there’s a shop just up the road which makes getting food really easy.
The location is perfect as it’s central but quiet – we had fantastic access to the slopes as the bus dropped us off at various lifts from outside the apartment block and we could ski back, only having to carry our skis a little bit.
There’s also the ice rink just up the road.

Inside was clean and comfortable; me and two others took a four man apartment with two bedrooms in the front bit and a pull-out double bed by the balcony.
The balcony had a nice view looking over a couple of slopes.
We cooked in the apartment a few nights and there are a couple of supermarkets local to it for getting ingredients.
The actual place was fine, a bit noisy with some kids letting their hair down and running around but it seemed to quiet down so maybe someone said something.
The apartment is a little on the outskirts but it’s very close to the slopes, about a five minute walk and you’re straight on the cable cars and chair lift.
Alpe d’Huez is quite a compact place so everything is within easy reach.

For a young group of lads or girls, these apartments are perfect. We just had the normal 60 square metre apartment but you can also get the ‘deluxe’ one which I think is 80 square metres. It’s a two level apartment and the rooms were all ready when we got there. The 4 sleeping on the top level loved it, the double room is really nice and the bunk beds are average at best. Downstairs, the 2 sofas become single beds. There is a 7th bed that folds out in-between the two sofas but we didn’t need it as there were 6 of us – if there were 7 people staying here, the one in this bed would get the short straw. If you’re here as a group, the 3 staying downstairs would need to be the most chilled out ones who don’t really mind where they sleep. The bonus of staying downstairs is that you do have the most storage space – there are loads of empty cupboards around the kitchen.
Inside has everything you need really, it’s hot and the showers work fine. There were 2 showers in the apartment we had, we used the downstairs one to dump our ski stuff in as there wasn’t anywhere else to keep it. The kitchen has a dining room table, kettle and a cooker and we cooked here for ¾ of the nights.
The supermarket is literally down the road about a 2 or 3 minute walk.
The apartments are right next to the ice rink and bars and stuff.
It’s a little trek to the ski lifts but nothing major (not very fun when you're hungover!), it probably took us about 10 minutes – pass the rink and pool, turn left and walk up the hill. The bars are a bit spread but there’s a really good one next to the apartments which is a stock exchange bar where the drink prices change every 15 minutes, good fun!

There was a group of 12 of us in 2 or 3 apartments and they were great, we had no problems with them and I’d go back.
We went as families with younger children and it was quite family orientated, not noisy at all. Our apartment was as it said it would be, comfortable and warm with lots of hot water.
We dined out most nights as I don’t want to cook when I’m on holiday and we had some good meals out, there are some nice places to go nearby including a little bar right underneath. We used to take the bus to get to the lifts, you just hop on and go down to the next stop or a couple of stops and you’re there, there are lots of buses so it wasn’t a big issue.
There was loads of snow while we were here so you could actually ski down the path to the apartments if you wanted to.
