Less than an hour's drive from Grenoble, the quintessentially french resort of Vaujany sits in a charming valley in the heart of the Oisans mountains with altitude views of Mont Blanc, Gran Paradiso and the Ecrins. Boasting one of the world's classic ski runs - the 'Champagne Run' - (a massive 2230m of vertical piste drop, click here) it provides world class piste and off-piste skiing for all abilities in a setting that is both magnificent and tranquil.
Vaujany village centre and its 160-man high speed gondola is a simple 3 minute drive (2km) or free bus ride from the chalet providing unequalled, mostly queue-free lift access to the entire Alpe d’Huez ski domain.
Overlooking its namesake, lake Verney - location of the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon swim - with arguably the best panorama of all Vaujany ski chalets, chalet Verney is a true home-from-home in the mountains within easy reach of Grenoble and Lyon main airports.
The chalet's wooden balconies and terrace provide outdoor dining with the most stunning alpine views in the entire Vaujany and Alpe d’Huez area, encompassing the Belledonne and Grandes Rousses peaks up to 3470m altitude.
Summer activities, besides cycling, include peaceful alpine trail walks with incredible views starting from directly behind the chalet. This location is also ideal for challenging mountain bike trails adopting much of the Alpe d'Huez ski piste routes, and for a small village Vaujany boasts a superb modern leisure centre with 25m indoor heated pool, gym and sauna as well as award winning child facilities. Additionally, there are tennis courts at altitude, a children’s play area and a newly built bike park providing further facilities only a few minutes drive above Vaujany in the Collet area.
