Spacious well-kept apartment in a quiet and tidy apartment block.
Very well located for the centre of Vielle Alpe.
Stunning view from balcony - whenever we ate at the apartment, we ate there.
Efficient dishwasher and washing machine were well appreciated.
3 bedrooms, hence one for parents and one each for the young-adult children.
Gerry was a great hostess. Good info in advance; met us at the apartment early the day after arrival (1am local time!) and on hand by Whats App at any time.
Furniture was clean and comfortable. Kitchenware, crockery and cutlery was a slight mish-mash but copious amounts of everything we needed.
If you come for biking, note that there are 5 bike hire places in the resort. All listed in the free book that you can pick up widely around the resort (e.g. at Office du Tourisme, one block up from Les Chanses).
We hired from 3 of them and would be happy to do again from all three.
- Cycle Huez. Run by a British-Aussie couple. Oliver is a keen cyclist and very knowledgeable. We hired cracking road bikes (carbon frame, ultegra groupset) for 40 Euros for one day. To do the road climb of the Alpe. They also do e-MTBs.
- Rocky Sports. Run by locals with good English. Very large selection of quality and well maintained bikes. We hired hardtails one day and Downhill bikes one day. Not cheap, but v good kit.
- Huez Sports. Run by Fabian and his father. Fabian has good English and a small discount for knowing Gerry! Not such a wide range of bikes. We hired downhill bikes for 2.5 days. Slightly older bikes than Rocky Sports but functionally maintained and Fabian was obliging and swift to fit a saddle with a shorter post so that one of my son's had an ideal fit. 65 Euros a day as opposed to 80 Euros at Rocky Sport.
Property was very well prepared right down to kitchen utensils, clean and tidy with great views. We were met on arrival with no problems. Easy to get to and parking was fine as well. Frederic the owner very easy to deal with and helpful. A small supermarket and other shops are literally 50 yards away which is helpful! We rode the Marmotte using the apartment as a base and it was perfect.
