We focus on your comfort; start with a big breakfast buffet, fresh-baked bread and croissants, bacon and eggs. Come back to homemade cakes. Relax in your suite, just make yourself at home or in the lounge. Still have energy to burn? Challenge someone to a game of table tennis or table football in the games room.

The personal touch

We are always around to answer your questions and make arrangements. We live here and know the area well. Alpe d’Huez is great for getting skiers of different standards together for lunch, if you are skiing with a mixed ability group, or even non skiers. If you want lessons we’ll help set you up with the right instructors. We love to ski too!

Not skiing

There are lots of walking paths on the mountain and the lifts are designed so that pedestrians can get right up to the top of the mountain and see what usually only good skiers see. Guided snowshoe walks are popular and can be arranged.
