**last remaining weeks of 2015/16 season have now been heavily discounted (price reflects discount). Ski season continues to 23/4/16. Glacial skiing = reliable snow all season. Fantastic and spacious ski apartment based over top two floor of 'Pic Blanc' building (with lift) facing the slopes, in Chalets des Neiges development (with pool, sauna, reception (with wifi) and great restaurant). Three of the four bedrooms have en suite showers, and there is an extra bathroom. Huge balcony, open fireplace, dishwasher, TV, separate ski locker etc. Exceptionally well located for skiing (ski in and out) this apartment is also within 2 mins walk/ski of the ski school meeting place, nursery slopes, shops (incl ski hire), supermarket, ski school office, crèche (up to age 6), tourist office and...**last remaining weeks of 2015/16 season have now been heavily discounted (price reflects discount).

The area has 41 greens, 28 blues, 27 reds and 14 blacks. For beginners there is a snow garden for children, a nursery slope with magic carpet and Poma, all within moments of the apartment. At the other end of the scale, there are some feisty blacks, including mogul fields and the longest black descent in Europe. There is also a fun park with timers, jumps and photographers! This charming resort is car free so this is an ideal location for families as the entire village is skiable. Oz has its own ESF (bookable on-line) and other ski schools and fantastic kids' activities (including weekly kids' torchlight descent). The chalet is also a fantastic location for mountain bikers in summer; it is well positioned for the megavalanche and hosted the VTT World Cup this year. The lifts are open in July and August. Chalet Folie is also great for road cyclists and close to many famous climbs. The Alpes d'Huez legendary 21 hairpins are nearby (accessible by gondola in the summer) as are many other famous landmarks and passes (including Col de Glandon, col de la Croix de Fer). We have agreed rates with a local company for cycling drop offs and pick ups. The nearest sizeable town (20 mins by car) of Bourg d'Oisans is a hub for road cycling. The Oisans mountains provide a fantastic backdrop for all sorts of walks. From reasonably gentle 'top of gondola to top of gondola' hikes, stopping at mountain restaurants, to more extreme mountain adventures involving refuges and via ferratas, the Oisans mountains cater for all levels. Please see the general 'chalets des neiges, Oz en oisans' reviews on trip advisor to get a flavour of the chaletMore

We stayed here for 10 days, my Sons were taking part in the Mega Avalanche downhill event. The apartment is lovely with everything you need, the en suite shower rooms to 3 of the 4 bedrooms was a great bonus! The views from the large...More

How to get there
If you fly - ask us for our special rates with chairlift.eu, and english speaking/owned company who will pick you up from any of the listed airports or train stations. Some bargains to be had on flights with the budget airlines. As a guide - for 8 people it would be under €50 pp return to Oz from Grenoble. Train to Grenoble is surprisingly quick from London (change in Paris) and there are good rates available. Alternatively change in Lille for Lyon. The owners frequently drive (we have recently taken ownership but have rented this apartment 3 times before). As a guide, it is 13 hours from Hertfordshire, comfortably, using the channel tunnel. We can help with directions etc.
