Description:

The chalet is situated in the beautiful unspoilt village of Venosc, on the edge of the Ecrins National Park just below the resort of Les Deux Alpes (6 minutes gondola ride away). It has stunning views across the Veneon Valley to the Muzelle glacier and the Ecrins Park. The start of the legendary Alpe d’Huez climb is just 20 minutes by bike. The Chalet accommodates 1-10 people along with the two owners who live in and make sure your holiday experience is unrivalled with great food, great company and over 14 years of experience spoiling guests. There are 3 large bedrooms (each accommodating 2-5), each with modern en-suite or private bathrooms, a spacious lounge with additional WC, large feature fireplace, CD player, and fantastic views to the glacier across the valley. There is a 51 ' Plasma TV and DVD on the mezzanine floor, a large balcony for alfresco dining, and downstairs a decking area to relax on leading to a prize winning garden. All rooms are south facing with magical views towards the Muzelle glacier and the Veneon valley. All food is freshly cooked using local produce where possible. Summer menus are typically 3 course wholesome mountain fayre, with pre dinner drinks and nibbles, high quality wine and after dinner teas or coffees. The owners are particularly familiar with special diets including vegetarian, gluten free, salt free, lactose free and quantity is never an issue!

Cycling:

Frequently visited and highly recommended by Cycling Weekly, twice used as Race Bike of the Year test base. The chalet is situated 20 minutes ride from the famous climb of Alpe d'Huez and is right in the midst of numerous classic Tour de France mountain stages. Cols such as Croix de Fer, Glandon, Telegraphe, Izoard, Lautaret, and Toussuire are all within riding distance. There are rides from the chalet to suit all levels, from the high mountain cols of Galibier to the beautiful alpine valleys of La Berarde. Guided cycling tours are available on request and for the competitive cyclists, time challenges posted by previous guests are there to be beaten on many of the local climbs. The air conditioned minibus is available for supported rides and airport pick-ups by arrangement. Secure bike storage, full tool kit, track pumps, route maps etc. Also repair and bike hire available locally. For mountain biking the excellent trail from Les Deux Alpes to Venosc practically passes the front door!
