Luxury 48sq.m apartment situated on turn 1 of the 21 turns offering magnificent mountain views. Ideally situated for those who wish to take full advantage of winter and summer sports and then return to the quiet location of the old town of Alpe D'Huez. Parking space available outside the apartment. Two bedrooms - one with double bed and one with bunk bed. In addition large sofa-bed in the living area.

About Sheila & Neil Timmins
Refusing to accept the onset of middle age, we entered our second childhood with vigour deciding it was time to work less and play more.
Sheila & Neil Timmins purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Sheila & Neil Timmins chose Viel-Alpe
Alpe D Huez is a wonderful all year round location offering outdoor sports in both winter and summer - including the awe inspiring Tour De France. The best bit for Sheila is the skiing. She learnt to ski here on the very forgiving nursery slopes - and, of course, the ski season here lasts for approximately five months of the year. So, all we needed was the perfect apartment and we found it in Chalet Oie.
What makes this Apartment unique
As soon as the shutters are raised you will be overwhelmed (as we still are) by the magnificent view. It is breathtaking to see the cloud rise from Bourg D'Oisans, making you feel that you are on top of the world.

Charming and comfortable chalet away from maddening crowds
Convenient, comfortable and quiet. Excellent wifi was a hit with our teenagers. Close enough to local facilities without being caught up in mainstream of this resort. Be sure to check out the location before driving up the hill - it is easy to make a wrong turn - for us at least. Parking is great. Would like to visit again.
Thank you for your kind comments. Really pleased you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment. Hope to welcome you back soon.

What a view
Met Gerry on arrival who was lovely. The apartment was lovely and spacious with warming and homely décor. The apartment has everything we needed. there is a lift very close by which was great. We were a family of four (3 adults 1 child) and the only thing that we had to work around was the hot water tank! But this was merely making sure everyone had quick showers, and had a shower routine in place. The view was incredible and a sun trap to relax and chill out on.
Thoroughly loved this chalet and all being well (and if the owners would let us), we would love to return next year.
Fabulous chalet ,amazingly friendly and helpful owners.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We’re really pleased that you’ve had a great holiday and enjoyed staying at the apartment. We’d love to welcome you back next year!

Séjour très agréable, appartement avec vue magnifique, station rêvée pour sportifs aimant lamontagne
Nous étions 2 adultes et 2 adolescents et avons passé une super semaine à l'Alpe D'Huez. Notre accueil s'est parfaitement. bien passé. L'appartement est vraiment très agréable, très fonctionnel et joliment meublé, avec surtout un très grand balcon ayant une vue incroyable sur les montagnes et la vallée. La station offre de nombreuses possibilités d'activités sportives, velo bien entendu, randonnées au milieu des lacs, via Ferrata, VTT de descente, canoë et paddle à Bourg d'Oisans. Et tout ça loin de la canicule qui écrasait le reste du pays au même moment. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir !
Thank you so much for your lovely review. Really pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and your stay in Alpe D'Huez.
Charmant chalet avec vue magnifique
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour au coeur du quartier Vieil Alpe de l'Alpe d'Huez. Le chalet offre toutes les commodités et le confort nécessaires, et bien que proche de tous les commerces et activités, est parfaitement au calme. La vue à partir du salon et de la chambre sur les montagnes est magnifique.
Les propriétaires sont facilement joignables et soucieux du bien-être de leurs locataires, et sont relayés sur place par des personnes également très disponibles et très sympathiques.
Nous avons séjourné l'été, et l'Alpe d'Huez regorge d'activités en tout genre, de la balade tranquille à des activités sportives de tout niveau. Les enfants ne seront pas en reste : piscine, patinoire, activités ludiques, tout est accessible directement dans la ville, vous pourrez oublier votre véhicule le temps de votre séjour.
Merci Sheila, Merci Tim !
We really enjoyed our stay in the heart of the Vieil Alpe district of Alpe d'Huez. The chalet offers all the necessary amenities and comfort, and although close to all shops and activities, is perfectly quiet. The view from the living room and bedroom on the mountains is beautiful.
The owners are easily reachable and concerned about the well-being of their tenants, and the people who welcomed us on site are also very helpful and friendly.
We stayed in the summer, and the Alpe d'Huez is full of activities of all kinds, from leisurely stroll to sports activities of any level. The children will not be left out: swimming pool, ice rink, fun activities, everything is accessible directly in the city, you will be able to forget your vehicle the time of your stay.
Thank you Sheila, thank you Tim!
Thank you Henrique for your wonderful review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the beautiful mountain view and your stay at the apartment.
