                                  Amazing Chalet in Villard Reculas

                                  5 of 5
                                  We stayed in the chalet for three nights (wish it was longer!) to be close to Alpe d'Huez for cycling purposes. It was a perfect distance away from Bourg d'Oisans- close enough to go into town, but far enough to have a quiet, peaceful stay without much interruption. The chalet itself was spacious for the four of us (could have easily added at least two more guests) with rooms upstairs and downstairs. All decor and appliances were up-to-date and of good quality. The Coopers were gracious hosts and it's obvious that they take much pride in the chalet and its maintenance. I would highly recommend this chalet to anyone and especially cyclists looking to ride around Alpe d'Huez. We hope to return and stay again!

                                  Lovely chalet in great location

                                  4 of 5
                                  Beautiful and spacious chalet in excellent location right by the slopes. Great for groups or families. There were 9 of us and it was very comfortable. Very quick and easy ski down to Rifnel and 3 other lifts from where you can go pretty much anywhere you want. Also easy to ski back the chalet, even for newer skiers. We didn't have a car but in the evenings the main town was accessible by free shuttle (although not always on way back if out late for dinner) or 15-20 min walk. We tended to do the latter which was fine even with the kids. Kitchen and dining area also perfect for eating in. One recommendation, do check very carefully the inventory document (in French) that you are asked to sign on the way in and out. We didn't as thoroughly as we should which caused some issues but it wouldn't stop us returning to what is a fantastic chalet in a wonderful resort.

                                  Very contemporary, clean and comfortable apartment.

                                  4 of 5
                                  Very nice apartment. Very well equipped with all mod cons and plenty crockery and cutlery. Comfortable beds and and easy chairs, plus massive TV and CD . Elevated position above the town gives wonderful views but might be a problem for late night revellers.No problem as we had young family and had transport. Otherwise bus passes every ½ hour approx. Resort very quiet as end of season, but great skiing up on glacier. Evolution 2 ski school great for kids and good deal on hire and passes. Very good beginners area at altitude. Grandchildren loved it(9,7,5). Planning to return.
