Description:

The property consists of two adjoining chalets which can be rented separately, or together for groups of up to 28 people. Half-board and B&B are available as well as self-catering.

The larger of the chalets has six charming bedrooms which sleep up to 16 people. However the heart of this chalet is the enormous dining and living room. With a large open fire place for chilly nights, windows on three sides of the property taking in views of the Ecrins National Park, Les Deux Alpes mountain resort and down towards Le Bourg d'Oisans, this space is easily large enough to accommodate groups even when rented with the other property.

In the smaller property there are five bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 people, each with their own character and charm, named after the surrounding mountains. Its original vaulted ceilings create an atmospheric and convivial kitchen and dining room.

The property is surrounded by stunning gardens, with vast lawns and plenty of shady areas to enjoy a post ride snooze. The front garden is open to the public with a snack and drinks bar, table tennis, boules, and badminton. If you prefer a little privacy, then the property has a lovely private garden at the rear.

If you chose the catered option, which is highly recommended, you will be rewarded with a selection of local and international cuisines with care taken to provide appropriate menus for cyclists.

The property has a very secure area to store and work on your bikes.

Cycling:

The Oisans valley is rapidly becoming the mecca for Alpine cycling. This is not surprising when you consider its myriad of mountain roads weaving their way along the valleys and traversing across mountain sides; the winding climbs making their way up from the forested valley floor to the high mountain resorts; and perhaps best of all, the extraordinary number of mountain cols with their stunning views, all within easy reach of a single location.

From the Lodge you have direct access to some of the most famous cycling routes in the world, be it a single climb up to Alpe d’Huez or the combination of mountain cols that are included in La Marmotte race. The challenge of the climb is matched only by the exhilaration of the descent. Be you a lone cyclist, a group of friends or a cycling club, the owners do everything they can to facilitate your recovery so that you are ready for the next adventure. They offer exceptional food, great relaxation and a daily rhythm to match your pursuits.
