Our 6th holiday in 'Bourg" and by far the BEST due to the fantastic house we found to stay in. Amazing holiday home, everything you could ask for. We had wonderful weather and having a private garden and the pool over the road made life even better. My son and husband found the cycling as good as ever, and therefore their passion to climb the Alpe, and my love of the area especially this house, will mean we will most definately return to Bourg d'Oisans.
We had a really lovely stay at this beautifully maintained and well-located house. It was perfect for our needs, a location at the bottom of the famous 21 which we drove up each day to ski at the resort of Alpe d'Huez (only a 15-20 min drive). The house is furnished really comfortably in a contemporary style. A huge log burning stove created a warm and cosy atmosphere after a long day's skiing. The kitchen was really well-equipped with every implement and cooking utensil we needed. The beds were very comfortable. There were fantastic instructions and Sue and Jamie, the owners, were excellent with advice and answers to our questions.
The house is kept to a really high standard and we found it to be spacious for 3 adults and 2 teens. We could easily have fitted in another 2 teens and one more adult. There was plenty of hot water for showers and baths. It was lovely to have lots of board games and books to borrow.
The description of the property and its facilities are really accurate and we would highly recommend this property, in fact we are hoping to book again ourselves for a summer trip.
We had a brilliant holiday in the alps and the house was amazing. There is nothing bad to say about the house at all only good things. The house has three good size bedrooms and a great kitchen and good size lounge. There is a lovely garden too which we were lucky enough to enjoy breakfast in every morning. The location of the house is excellent too - you can see the top of alpe duez from the front door and over the road is a very good swimming pool which we went to every day. Overall 10/10.
From the start Sue and Jamie were amazing hosts. I had quite a few questions and Sue was more than happy to answer them.
On arrival to the house we were blown away by the views, and the house was just as wonderful. I really loved the decor, and the quality of the furnishings were second to none. Our children were very pleased with the variety of toys and games. The layout of the house was very well thought out from top to bottom with everything you could possibly need right at your fingertips. To sum it up - we felt at home here and by the end of our week long stay had already decided to come back again, i would not hesitate to recommend this property to any of my friends and family (which i have already done) and we can't wait to go back ! Thanks Sue and Jamie !!
I stayed here with a group of cycling friends in June and we found it to be an ideal house for the purposes of our trip. Located no more than 400m from the base of Alpe d'Huez and a short distance up and down the the valley to reach many other Col's, it was an ideal starting point for a days cycling. The house is modern and extemely well presented with everything we required for our stay. There was also an adjoining secure garage which provided more than enough space for storing 7 bikes and bike bags. Only a 5 min walk to the large Casino supermarket, and 5 mins to the centre of town where there's a variety of restaurants, banks, and shops (inc. bike shops).
A great house in a great location - would highly recommended.
Stayed here for a one-week holiday of cycling/hiking/swimming - for which Bourg d'Oisans is a perfect base. The house is fantastic, and the owners provided a travel cot, high chair and toddler toys for our 16-month-old son. The unexpected addition of CBeebies was also a big treat! Highly recommend.
Stayed here with some friends on a short cycling holiday in June 2010. The house is beautiful with all the facilities you could need. 5 minute walk to the town centre and 3 minutes to the large supermarket.
A paradise of activities winter & summer: walking, climbing, skiing, horse riding, cycling, rafting, canoeing, swimming, fishing, golf, parapenting and adventure park.

Bourg d'oisans has several restaurants, cafes, a large renovated supermarket and busy year round Saturday market. Next to summer open air pool with toddler pool, water slide and grass area for picnics. Join in the village activities. Visit the quaint cobblestone village of Venosc. Take a day trip to the walled fortress town of Briancon or historic Grenoble with its trams, shops and museum. You are well placed to select the 'best snow' in winter. EASY access with plenty of free parking at both high resorts Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes and the pretty tree lined resort Vaujany. You are also 1 hour away from the delightful resort of Serre Chevalier.
Other Activities: Bouledrome, white water rafting
Ski: Well placed to select the 'best snow'. We are at the base of Alpe d'Huez, just a 15 minute drive to plenty of free parking by the slopes in Alpe d'huez, 20 mins to Vaujany and 30 mins to Les Deuz Alpes. The area is the 5th largest ski area in France, benefiting from a variety of pistes for skiers, snowboarders, walkers and ski du fond. In addition the lovely ski area of Serre Chevalier is just an hour away.
In Alpe d'Huez advanced skiers should try the challenging 'tunnel'? Alternatively enjoy one of Europe's longest runs Sarenne, 16km of piste, or test your skills in the snow park.
Lift passes are available at each resort. We recommend you hire a car, however, if you don't want to drive, in winter a bus service is available check with the tourist office for times.
