Chalet La Folie is a beautiful characterful two floored penthouse apartment with spectacular views. With sloping wood ceilings, a huge balcony, a fireplace and an open-style kitchen/living area with a dining table for 10 it is the ideal base for family or group skiing. We have WiFi, tv, DVD player, nespresso machine, private ski locker etc. Also access to shared pool, sauna, steam etc.
The chalet occupies the fifth and sixth floors of 'Pic Blanc' building (with lift) facing the slopes, in the renowned Chalets des Neiges development (with great restaurant). You can ski directly into and out of the building.
The chalet sleeps 10 in four bedrooms. On the first level there is a double bedroom with ensuite shower and two twin rooms (one with ensuite shower). Upstairs there is a bedroom for 4 with two twin beds and two mezzaine bunks - perfect for a family of four or as a 'kids' room. This room has an ensuite shower and toilet. There is an additional bathroom and separate WC downstairs. There are three sofa beds in the living room. (Therefore there are actually 13 beds, but we advise the chalet is most comfortable with up to 10).
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 two fast queue-free gondolas into the huge Grandes Domaines (Alpes d'Huez) ski area.
The area is also fantastic for walking and cycling (both mountain and road) in the summer with the lifts open July and August and there are many organised activities.
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).
