Hope to see you again
Great apartment in an excellent location
Very clean, has everything you need for an easy self catering holiday. Property as the photos show and as described.
Easy walk to the town and good road access to lots of places of interest.
Views from every window in the property are stunning
Now you know why we love this place , come back soon
The location of the apartment was perfect, about 5 min walk and you are in the center and it was at the foot of the Alpe d'Huez.
We were with 3 people and it is a luxury that there are two good bathrooms. The kitchen was also nice and spacious and a plus point was the washing machine. After cycling you could even wash the clothes.
There was also a storage room for the bikes. And the view of the mountains is beautiful.
We love walking and cycling, then you're in this apartment perfect. Everything you need is there and you can go anywhere. We had a fantastic holiday.
We will definitely be back in the future!
We look forward in welcoming you back

The property was very close to the bottom of the climb to L'Alpe d'Huez. Also a short walk to the supermarket and town centre.
We were four adults sharing and the sleeping arrangements worked well. It might be crowded for more adults but excellent for a large family group.
Glad to see you had a good trip, hopefully you will return soon

Nous avons eu la chance de louer cet appartement 1 semaine en juin 2016 pour aller faire du vélo dans les cols mythiques et d'y retourner en janvier 2017 pour faire du ski alpin à l'Alpe d'huez. Satisfaction à tous les points de vue: emplacement, tranquillité, équipements, etc.... Un gros bonus en hiver : le plancher est chauffant. Quel plaisir. Merci à Trevor pour les réponses rapides à nos questions.
Fab property in a great location
The apartment is well equipped to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. Comfortable open plan, kitchen/living room and diner with plenty or room and the kitchen is well stocked with all the utensils and crockery etc you would need. The view from the balcony over the mountains is fab and the balcony itself is like a little sun trap - great for a chilled out afternoon/evening.
The apartment in an amazing location. Its about a 5-10 minute walk into the centre of Bourg d'Oisans for supermarkets and restaurants. The access to some of the best cycling routes is incredible being right at the foot of Alpe d'Huez with Col du Glandon, Croix de Fer and many more right at your finger tips. Theres a number of good Via Ferrata routes within a few minutes drive and loads of walking trails. Perfect for a summer activity break with plenty of places to also relax and unwind.
We will definetly be coming back here in the future.
It's great to see you loved this little piece of paradise as much as we do, look forward to welcoming you back soon

The Oisans are home to an extraordinary range of fauna and flora, as well as fascinating geological features. With over 800 km of marked trails, ranging from easy strolls to adventurous hikes, you can escape to the highest summits and discover scenery that is as varied as it is astonishing. The Oisans are also synonymous with legendary Tour de France mountain stages. Alpe-d’Huez, Les 2 Alpes and Bourg-d’Oisans have left their mark on this race, and are part of its living legend. The most renowned cycling races in the Alps including the famous 'Marmotte' are put on for the Oisans Trophy. Mountain biking in the Oisans plays host to spectacular mountain bike competitions such as 'Megavalanche' the longest MTB downhill race in the world, starting on the Alpe-d’Huez glacier and finishing 30 km and 2 800 metres further down, in the centre of the village of Allemont or the “Mountain of Hell”, a free ride downhill race in Les 2 Alpes.
