Chalet La Balme is an 8 Bedroom Chalet in the heart of the Oisans region. Easy access to Alp d'Huez & Les 2 Alpes.

**RATES QUOTED ARE FOR EXCLUSIVE HIRE BUT ROOMS CAN BE RENTED ALSO**

The space

This chalet is truly unique. Nestled on the side of the mountain it boasts amazing views. There are 8 guest bedrooms in total and four bathrooms. The chalet can sleep up to 19 people as there are also bunk beds in one of the rooms making it great for groups and families alike. There is a large open plan living/dining/cooking area with a large dining table to seat up to 22 guests. The chalet has ample parking, ski/bike storage as well as a garage and boot room. The nearest ski lifts are in Auris which is a 10 min drive up the road, from there you can ski across to Alp d'Huez in about 20 mins. Alp d'Huez is an amazing ski area for all abilities with an abundance of beginner, intermediate and expert runs. Les 2 Alps is just a 30 min drive over the valley and opens up two more mountains to explore. All in all the chalet offers the guests two holidays in one with some of the best ski and bike terrain in the world.

We have the chalet listed as per person per night with breakfast. If you wish to rent the whole place please email me to discuss a rate.

If the guests book the entire Chalet they will have exclusive use of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floor. The ground floor garage and owner apartment will be off limits.

We are happy to have as much or little interaction as you'd like. We are both experienced ski/snowboard and mountain bike enthusiasts and have a good knowledge base of the area. We are happy to accompany guests around the mountain if requested and also offer a babysitting and mountain drop off/collection service.

The Chalet is in a small village called La Balme. It is one of the most beautiful villages in the Alps perched on the side of the mountain. There are breathtaking views down the valley. The village is quite and safe so perfect for families. If you are looking for bars and clubs within walking distance this probably isn't for you as the busiest resort is approx 30 min drive away. We can however offer a drop off/collection service if pre-arranged with a time.

There are buses up to Auris but these can be irregular. The best thing to do would be to self drive/hire a car to get around. Alternatively we can offer a ski/bike lift service at an additional cost.

If you are booking on a room basis then the communal areas - lounge/dining room and kitchen will be shared with other guests. Please respect the others in the house and leave the shared areas spic and span.

This chalet was rented by a group of cyclists participating in La Marmotte Gran Fondo. It was perfect for our requirements with plenty of space and our bikes were stored safely. The kitchen and living area was large and suited the group with no problems. The host was very responsive to any queries and any issues dealt with quickly and considerately. There was also ample space for parking cars. The hot tub was a great experience!

This chalet was perfect for a large group of people, both in terms of living quarters and proximity to a number of ski resorts! Lainy and Alex were very helpful with lifts into town as well in the evenings in their van. They were also easy to get hold of when we had a few minor problems with the house, all of which were rectified quickly. Overall an excellent stay and we will definitely be returning.

This is a fantastic place to say, I had a group of 17 people (7 families) looking for somewhere to stay for a cycling holiday in the region. There's a wide open kitchen, dining, living area where we were all able to sit, cook and socialise, while all having a room for some quiet time and relaxation. The chalet is clean and well maintained with facilities for cooking and cleaning. It is situated in a small village with good access to some great walks around the mountains and breathtaking views. There were facilities for us to store our bikes and do the basic maintenance required. There is nowhere to eat in the village and we went in off season, between skiing and summer activities, so finding somewhere for a group as large as ours to eat was fine. We did find a fantastic restaurant two miles up the mountain (Auberge de la foret in Les Cours ), and another a few miles away in Le Freney-d'Oisans. The chalet is perfectly located for hiking, mountain biking and road biking and has great access (with a short drive) to the town of Le Bourg d'Osains where there were a lot of shops, bike shops and supermarkets etc. There is great access to the area, including Alpe d'huez and Les Deux Alpes. Our hosts were brilliant, we couldn't have asked for more from them. They really made us all feel welcome and were full of suggestions of where to go, and what to do. Very knowledgable of the area. When we return for our next holiday in the region we will definitely stay here again, 5 stars well deserved.
