In Vaujany you will find a Local Wildlife area, Memory centre, cinema, Hydroelectric museum, indoor ice skating rink, bowling alley, spa, swimming pool, parapenting, shops, internet cafe and some wonderful relaxing bars and restaurants both in the village and on the mountain.

Cycling/Mountain biking - Vaujany is only 15 minutes from Bourg d'Oisans, a cycling mecca. Close proximity to the famous climb to Alpe d'Huez and nearby cols such as Galibier, Glandon and Croix de Fer. There are some exciting mountain-bike routes including the descent from Pic Blanc (3,300m) to Allemont (750m) using the cable-car for the ascent!

Mountaineering - Excellent local peaks including the Rissiou (2,622m), the Etendard (3,464m) and Belledonne (2,926m). Slightly further afield (1 hour) the Parc des Ecrins offers some famous mountains such as the Meije (3,982m) and the Ecrin (4,102m) and the climbing centres of La Grave and La Berarde are well worth a visit. There is a cosy mountain hut locally at 2,300m and a whole series of strategically placed huts in the Parc des Ecrins. You are advised to take a mountain guide with you.

Parapenting- The parapente school, based beside the tennis club just above La Villette, offers breathtaking tandem flights from 2,000m or 2,800m and beginners' courses by arrangement.

Facilities include - main pool, paddle pool, water slide, sauna, spa, jacuzzi, hammam, gym and health centre, bowling alley and ice skating rink.

Hiking/Walking - You can wander through the surrounding meadows and woodland, take a walk to Enversin for lunch, hop on the cable car to visit the lakes or scramble up mountain paths for views of distant valleys. A waterfall or stream is never far and wild flowers are all around.

Tennis - Situated amongst the meadows just above the hamlet of La Villette and surrounded by breathtaking scenery there is a superb tennis club with six hard courts, playground, restaurant/bar and sun-terrace.

Rafting - About thirty minutes away between Venosc and St Christophe (both worth a visit) is the rafting and canoeing centre 'Veneon eaux vives' offering some thrilling outings on the river accompanied by experienced instructors.

About Nigel Purkhardt

Family man with a gorgeous wife and five lovely children!

Nigel Purkhardt purchased this chalet in 2000

Why Nigel Purkhardt chose Alpe d'Huez area

Staying at Chalet Saskia is a real treat. We love it for a skiing holiday in the winter, so close to the main lift-station, but the summer is also amazing with so much to do including the new via-ferrata by the waterfall; absolutely stunning.

What makes this chalet unique

The cuisine is an experience in itself and then Vaujany itself is hidden gem of a place with a village atmosphere and world class skiing and superb facilities. They have just finished building an International Ice Hockey stadium and bowling facility!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Oh my goodness, what a wonderful few days we had! I booked a last minute 4 day ski break with a friend and it was simply tremendous.



Marcus' food is just awesome, so delicious and original. Beautifully presented, varied and always a treat. Rosa is wonderful, a flawless organiser and truly friendly.



The rooms are spacious, clean and well furnished. The view down the valley is beautiful - what can compete with waking up every morning and seeing the mountains?!



The chalet is so pretty and relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day is a treat not to be missed.



The village itself is really lovely too. Friendly people everywhere, good value equipment and scrumptious local specialities.



I can't recommend the whole Ski Peak experience highly enough and I can't wait to go back!

Exceptional revisited

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed at Chalet Saskia three times, incorporating ten nights in both their summer and winter seasons. I may be considered a fan, but for good reason.

This Chalet, the location, its facilities, the ambiance, but most of all the food are first class. I ski and cycle and it offers a very accomplished base for both activities. Convenient and fast lift service into the Alpe d’Huez Ski area and fantastic access to the cycling climbs made famous by Le Tour.

You can ride, walk, ski, jump, swim, find trails challenge yourself whatever the season. Or just get away from it all. Safe in the knowledge that a brilliant base awaits at the end of the day, with all the facilities to make your trip a success.

Every cyclist dream !

An amazing location close to all those historic Alpine climbs and when you have had enough the sting in the tail to the Chalet is where Chris Froome and Richie Port battled it out to a classic finish

That Chalet itself is of a high standard only supassed by the amazing food all topped of with brilliant hosts. We will be back

Even better the second time round

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Villa Saskia, and for the 2 years in between I have boasted to my friends coming on this trip how amazing the accomodation, the staff and the food where. My friends were blown away and 3 weeks later they are still talking about the food and already planning a return visit.

Can not speak highly enough of Marcus and his team.

Génial

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon week-end au chalet, chaque chambre dispose d'une salle de bain privée avec WC, ce qui est très agréable quand vous êtes un groupe d'amis comme nous.

La cuisine professionnelle est très bien équipée (du jamais vu). Les salons avec cheminées sont agréables.

Foncez ! C'est top.
