After skiing

Even more fun

Our recommendations, partners and special offers

Because we want your holidays to be memorable, let us share some tips.

Go to groceries

Your first concern when you arrive: fill the fridge. During the week, you will discover different shops and wine shops, especially Avenue des Jeux and the Old Alpe (neighborhood at the entrance of the resort, not to be confused with the village of Huez, below).

To make it simple and efficient, we recommend the nearest supermarket, you will find all the general food and necessary maintenance products as well as a butcher and a bakery.

Spar Alpe d’Huez , 205 avenue des Jeux, 38750 Alpe d’Huez

This supermarket is less than 100m from the building: just go up the stairs to the right of the building. The store is located at the top of the stairs to the left.
Open 7/7 – 7:00 am / 8:00 pm

Go shopping

Many multi-brand shops ready to wear, decorative objects and souvenirs await you at the Alpe d’Huez, mainly on the Avenue des Jeux and Avenue de l’Etendard, less than 200m from the apartment.

Other Activities

3 main spots are open all year :

  • A heated outdoor swimming pool : located 150 meters from the apartment, take the righthand staircase and make a left on Avenue des Jeux.
  • An outdoor ice-skating rink : also located at 150 meters from the apartment, take the righthand staircase and make a right.
  • A sports center (palais des sports) : located at 250 meters from the apartment, low end of Avenue des Jeux. There is an indoor swimming pool, a fully equipped gym, a climbing wall, and fitness classes.

For more information : The website provides you with opening hours and weekly activity schedules.

Tennis courts and golf courses are available in summer, located near the Altiport, beyond “Les Bergers” area.

At the other side of the village, after the « Rond Point des Pistes », there is a horse-riding club well equipped.

And don’t forget your running shoes : exit the building, turn right until you reach the « Rond Point des Pistes », and take the road that leads to the horse-riding club. Do not go down this road : go up until you reach the restaurant « La Plage des Neiges » and further until the Lake Besson. Enjoy the pristine view of this 10 km road (350 meters height).

Discover new activities

A beautiful “chalet” in the middle of nowhere for a deep connection with mother nature. Excellent meat cooked by the fireplace. Beautiful sunny terrace.
