Vaujany is a tiny village in the Alpe d’Huez ski resort of Isere, France. Simply bursting with Alpine charm, Vaujany is fantastically traditional, perfect for peaceful skiing holidays where skiing takes top priority. The quality of sport in both winter and summer is absolutely exceptional from a Vaujany chalet, and there is nowhere better to experience Alpine lifestyles.
Vaujany lies in one of the largest ski domains in Europe. The Alpe d’Huez ski domain is an absolute pleasure to ski, with excellent skiing for every level of experience, with wide, gentle slopes for beginners to gain their confidence and perfect their turns, and endless back country for fearless skiers and snowboarders to explore. There are over 200km of pistes to conquer, cutting across valleys, through forests and down to the many villages in the valley. There is such a maze of ski lifts that it would be impossible to get to know the whole area in a single Vaujany holiday, so taking a piste map as you explore is essential, such is the size of the resort. For those hoping to get a little tuition from Vaujany, the French Ski School is exceptional, with plenty of English speaking teachers.
If you require a day of recovery away from the slopes during your stay, there are plenty of activities to enjoy. There is a great skating rink in the village, as well as a cinema, a fantastic spa centre and a wonderful little museum documenting 100 years of life in Vaujany. Locals still sell their produce, including cheese, honey and fruit jams in the village, which makes it a real delight to shop in the village.
The summer months see Vaujany chalets filled with walkers and climbers looking for perfect solitude in the mountains. Many of the ski lifts remain open during the summer, taking walkers and climbers onto the mountain ridges towards the imposing peaks of Mont Blanc.
The extensive lift system that serves Vaujany makes it extremely easy to visit the rest of the Alpe d’Huez ski resort, as well as the famous towns and villages of the Three Valleys ski resort which lies on the other side of the valley walls. There are endless sporting and cultural facilities to enjoy in the Three Valleys, and if you decide to take a day away from the slopes during your Vaujany holiday, a trip into the Three Valleys is an excellent option for entertainment.
Grenoble Airport (GNB) is just an hour from a holiday rental chalet in Vaujany. Regular flights arrive into Grenoble Airport from the UK, with services from Bournemouth, (BOH), the East Midlands (EMA), London and Liverpool (LPL) among others. There are many transfer options to choose from, including a great selection of hire car companies operating from the airport.
