Well partitioned Chalet with a very nice common area

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time staying in Chalet Hibernation with a group of 12 adults.

The 6 Bedrooms gave enough space and privacy for everyone who didnt want to take part in groupactivities - but the well equiped kitchen (maybe add some sharp knifes) and the large livingroom with an open fireplace where designated to cook, play, sit and talk together.

Getting back to the chalet on ski got a bit tricky in the end - but well that was just the wrrong week (last week of January 2017), the week after we left with + 70cm snow i'd figure it was no problem at all.

Big thanks to the team of "Il fera beau demain" for all the help and tips provided!

supergezellig huis, van alle gemakken voorzien

  • 4 of 5

Bedden opgemaakt bij aankomst, gezellige keuken met heel veel spullen. Woonkamer heeft wat weinig zachte zitplekken, maar wel een prachtig uitzicht. Comfortabele bedden, het sanitair is wat ouder maar functioneert prima. Wij hadden heel veel sneeuw in deze week, dus skien vanaf de piste naar het huisje ging prima.

Heerlijk familie huis

  • 5 of 5

We hebben genoten van het huis, we waren met veel kinderen en dat ging goed. Er is wel achterstallig onderhoud, bv niet goed sluitende deuren naar het balkon en in de eetkamer opent en sluit het raam niet goed, de voordeur sluit ook heel lastig ed...Verder prachtig!

Villard-Reculas/ Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine Ski
Car: recommended

Chalet 'Hibernation' is a very spacious and comfortable family chalet, 12 people, in the charming mountain village of Villard-Reculas, amid the overwhelming Alpe D'Huez Grand Domaine Ski, 1550- 3330 m altitude. In winter an ideal resort, the ski resort of Alpe d'Huez is one of the largest and most modern of the French Alps and the resorts of Alpe d'Huez, Auris, Oz en Oisans, Vaujany and Villard-Reculas.

From the village of Villard-Reculas are you with the 4-seater chairlift in 7 minutes in the middle of the ski area. Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine Ski has 250 km of slopes. Among them include the famous descent of the 'Sarenne' with its length of 16 km the longest in the world! And you can take the exciting arena "Tunnel" from Pic Blanc (3330 meters).

Obviously there are many restaurants on the slopes, spread throughout the area. And those who think they do not do après ski in France ... you can begin on the track to swing at 'La Folie Douce'

Non-skiers are well catered for with the many opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiers (ski de fond) sledding, animations, SPA, etc.

The village of Villard-Reculas also has its own ski area with slopes on all levels, including for beginners and a protected area for small children (jardin des enfants). The ski school (ESF) Villard-Reculas offers opportunities for group and individual lessons, alpine skiing, snowboarding, guided snowshoe hikes and for the adventurous skiers also special ski touring and off-piste tours.

The slopes of Villard-Reculas, the ski school and ski lifts are close together, you come easily against each other, which gives a nice personal touch.

From the restaurant 'La Bergerie' on the slopes, you can keep an eye on everything and enjoy a food and drink on the sunny terrace.

Obviously, the area has to offer more than just ski slopes ....

In the village you can stroll around and admire the authentic houses, or visit the goat farm ..... poking around at the tourist office, the ski shop, try a drink at 'La Cabane' or 'Le Comptoir du Villard "and at the same time as doing your daily shopping.

Of course you should also visit the cosmopolitan resort of Alpe d'Huez or Bourg d'Oisans, famous for cyclists.
