Tour de France top climbs, next to Alpe d'Huez,Very nice family house
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Perfect for a cycling road trip

  • 4 of 5

The accommodation was perfect for our road cycling weekend of hill climbing. The accommodation was about 7 miles up the Croix De Fer, so it was a good climb back to the accommodation but perfect if you want to improve your hill climbing.

The accommodation was clean and functional and had two good showers with plenty of hot water. It was cheap, so don't expect the Ritz. Chrystelle the owner was very helpful. It was fully equipped and had everything we needed.

It could do with some curtains that fit the windows to cut the light out in the morning if you want to lie in.

Definitely like to go back again as the price was very reasonable hence the rating.

The house is located in a rural mountain village halfway the climb to the Col de la Croix de Fer, close to Alpe d'Huez and Bourg d'Oisans.

The village is very charming, with just 50 regular inhabitants, typical French Alpes style houses, surrounded by mountains, forests and rock formations making for the most spectacular views.

Despite the altitude of 1,270m, with the village facing south, the climate makes for very hot summers.
