Alpe d'Huez, France

We are delighted to offer the 3-star plus Chalet Rostaing and Chalet Lucette in Vaujany Alp D’Huez, France for the second season. Our friendly ski weeks include group lessons on five mornings of the week, making this perfect for Beginners and Intermediates, while Advanced ski lessons are also available. After ski school, we meet for lunch (own expense) and the afternoon is free for you to put your new skills into practice; there is always someone around to ski with. We partner these chalets with Ski Peak UK & France who own these 2 chalets.

Colum, our Friendship Travel MD, who started off working in the Alps over 25 years ago will be hosting these 2 exclusive weeks. Colum can get you organised with lift pass, ski school and any equipment you need to hire and is a mine of information about the best spot for lunch or the quieter pistes for afternoon skiing. As the chalets are not large, your Host sleeps out, but is at your disposal on 5 days of the week. Ski hire packs start at €106 and do not need to be booked in

Our board basis is half board with dinner included on 5 nights. Breakfast is buffet style and will include bread, jam, cereals, yoghurts, patisseries and one hot egg option each day. An afternoon tea of freshly baked biscuits or cake will be waiting for you when you get back from the slopes and then you can relax until dinner time. Dinner is 3 courses including 1⁄2 bottle of wine and finishing with coffee.

The host will have two well deserved full days off each week, this gives an opportunity for you to try local restaurants and our in resort team will be more than happy to book a table somewhere for you. On the hosts full day off breakfast and afternoon tea will be left for you.

As this is an exclusive Houseparty we can offer flexibility on flights, many options from regional airports as well as London Gatwick. Ask us for details.

Chalet Rostaing & Chalet Lucette

We have teamed up with Ski Peak Uk who have worked in Vaujany for over 30 years, to bring our guests an amazing catered chalet experience. Chalet Rostaing & Chalet Lucette are 2 chalets side by side in this beautiful, traditional resort.

The 11 rooms are a mix of doubles, twins and triples priced for single occupancy, but with the flexibility to offer some twin-share accommodation. They have either ensuite shower/wc or an adjacent shared bathroom. The maximum group size here will be 12 guests.

Both chalets have, in addition, a welcoming TV lounge with open, wood fire, ski room and boot warmer and every evening we all come together round one table for meals. A bonus is free WiFi so you can update your social media pages with snowy pictures! Guests will eat all meals in the Chalet Rostaing.

We have also included 5 x 2 hour private, small group lessonsand you can choose from 3 levels – beginner, intermediate or advanced.

Your Room

All of the bedrooms are tastefully decorated, some large and some smaller and all have a window – (some chalets in France don’t!).

You will have a choice of double or twin rooms for sole occupancy. Some of the rooms will have an ensuite and some will have a shared toilet.

There is also the option to share a twin room if you wish – saving up to £200 per person.

How does a ‘Twin Share’ room work?

We offer a room as a Twin Share basis to increase the total number of guests in the Chalet and also to offer some reduced prices spaces for guests to join. The room is allocated to one sex or the other, depending who books first, they are all non smoking (as is all the chalet), and both guests have their own space and storage in the room. On a ski holiday you spend very little time in your room, therefore a Twin Share option is a great way to save money – use the saving to pay for your lift pass.

Vaujany is just different! Part of the sunniest resort in the French Alps with more than 300 days of glorious blue skies a year, and perched on a beautifully scenic slope in a corner of the Alpe d’Huez ski area. The village of Vaujany is a hidden gem in the big purpose-built resorts of the French Alps.

From the nursey slopes of Montfrais and Alpette, to the more challenging terrain of the Pic Blanc glacier, plus part of the beauty of this location is that you can ski back to within 200 metres of both chalets – a wonderful way to end the day!

Ski Peak has been the only tour operator to service the charming village of Vaujany for nearly 3 decades. As a family business which was borne out of a love for skiing, the mountains, and the finer things in life, the Purkhadt family have worked tirelessly to deliver an experience worthy of all that Vaujany has to offer.
