Alps d’Huez Holiday Chalets, Apartments and Houses for rental

L'Alpe d'Huez is a mountain pasture in the Central French Alps, in the commune of Huez, in the Isère department in the Rhône-Alpes region. It is the central resort of the Grandes Causses ski region. At 1,860 to 3,330 metres, L’ Alpe d'Huez boasts year round attractions, a ski resort in the winter and at other times L’Alpe d'Huez is a Mecca for cycling fans. L'Alpe d'Huez is one of the main mountains in the Tour de France - one of the most important stages of the Tour de France ends at the ski station. It has been a stage finish, drawing extraordinary crowds, almost every year since 1976.

For cycling enthusiasts, renting a self-catering L’Alpe d’Huez holiday apartment or chalet is heaven - The resort caters beautifully for mountain-bikers during the summer months, the pinnacle of which is the Megavalanche, a 'Downhill Enduro' Event that takes riders from lift station at the highest peak, Pic Blanc, to Allemont in the valley floor.

Equally, a visit to Alpe d'Huez during the snow season is an irresistible temptation –it’s one of Europe's premier skiing venues. With 249 km of piste and 84 ski lifts, it's now one of the world's largest ski resorts - stay in holiday accommodation in Alpe d'Huez , France and experience what this fantastic resort has to offer! Extensive snowmaking facilities have ensured L’Alpe d'Huez also appeals to beginner skiers, with very easy slopes. The expansion of the skiing above the linked resorts of Vaujany, Oz-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas and Auris has added to the allure of the resort - boosting the quantity and quality of intermediate grade slopes. When you rent a self-catering L’Alpe d’Huez chalet you’ll soon realize that the resort is mostly known for free skiing, drawing many steep skiing enthusiasts to its high altitude terrain.

Other activities in the region during the summer include hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, rafting. You can try rock-climbing or paragliding, and for those brave enough there’s ice-diving under the ice of Lake Besson to admire an underwater spectacle of fabulous ice-formations.

In summer, the climate is generally hot and sunny in the lower valleys and pleasantly cool higher up. However, in winter, conditions are often reversed and these valleys become much chillier as the cold, dense air sinks down the mountainside to form a pool in the valley itself.

Travelling to your Alpe d'Huez holiday rental property: Airports that serve this resort include Chambery, Lyon and now Grenoble.
