average rating of 4.8 based on 5 reviews

Perfect place to stay; comfortable, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We (10 persons) had a great stay during the 2 week period from May 23 till June 6, 2015.

The chalet is very comfortable, luxury and well cleaned, the beds are very good. Enough space as well inside as outside and very good facilities (TV, video, dvd, washing machine, dryer, two refrigeators, freezer, hot tub, ..). We had a very warm welcome from the owners who especially came over from England to welcome us. We felt as being at home.

On top of that all the chalet is located at a spot with a beautiful view over the surroundig alps and the valley of Bourg d'Oissan.

Perfect Chalet in Villard

  • 5 of 5

OMG what a perfect place to spend a week in the mountains. Couldn't fault this chalet in any way. Quiet at night with views to remember. No more than 2 minutes walk to the piste. Super comfortable beds with more hot water than you can shake a stick at.

Go ahead and book this place you will not be disappointed!!!!!

Chalet bien placée avec Jacuzzi sympa

  • 4 of 5

Jolie chalet pour 10 personnes ( le 11 eme lit eSt sous le toit , il faut passer par une trappe , très exiguë ou on peut mettre un matelas par terre) environ 150 m carré , 5 chambres très petites mais confortable , petite douches attenantes sur 3 et belle salle de bain attenante pour une. Chauffage électrique un peu juste par grand froid .

Village calme mais vraiment peude commerces en particulier de bouche, Les plus : mike a l'accueille et qui vit dans appart du dernier étage , super sympa et dispo , un vrai plus pour ce chalet . Le système de clé pour que tout le monde puisse revenir au chalet à son rythme. Le canapé du salon , bois pour cheminé fournis, et jacuzzi extra. L'accès aux pistes est assez facile à pied , pour rejoindre le tire fesse du bas de la station . L'accès au seul ( très petit ) commerce qui fait supérette de basse et resto bistro journaux boulangerie ....eSt aussi facile à pied .

Au total chalet très sympa mais qui ne fait pas 300 m2 même en comptant l'énorme buanderie où il y a un grand frigo. Village isolé et calme , il faut arriver avec courses déjà faites pour l'essentiel.

8 fantastic beautiful days in Gabbro.

  • 5 of 5

We (8 adults and a child of one year) have had some fantastic beautiful days in Gabbro. We have certainly been very happy to stay in the chalet. Everything fit perfect for us, with bedrooms and separate bath, very well equipped kitchen, nice dining room, cozy sitting area with TV, and much much more. We have enjoyed the magnificent view, the many hours of sunshine, the weather changed to rain, wind and thunderstorms, homemade French cuisine. We really enjoyed the day with each other, with mountain trekking, sunbathing on the terrace, hot tub during the day and at night under the starry sky, climbing the waterfall Cascadra la Fara in Vaujany, two days of the Tour de France, and a day of cycling up Alpe d'Huez. We have had some very special good external conditions for our vacation. We could well imagine to return another year.

Situated in the heart of the Ecrins National Park, there are a great variety of walks and hikes.

Ski: Gabbro is ideally equipped and situated for skiing and boarding. Located on the upper floor is a ski and boot room. This includes a heated boot rack, which dries, heats and deodorizes your boots ready for the next days skiing. The local ski and boot hire shop, Le P'tit Pingouin, offers 20% off hire for those renting Gabbro.

GABBRO is less than 100m from the nearest piste. From there access to the Grandes Rousses ski area is easy. It has almost 250km of pisted skiing and extensive off-piste areas to height of.
