About the Owner

Michael Baldwin - ski enthusiast, mountaineer, cyclist and hotelier.

Settled at La Source in Villard Reculas after a career in London in the hospitality industry. Decided in 1998 to combine my professional expertise with my interests in mountains activities - in particular mountains sports: skiing, snow-shoeing, ski rando, hiking, Via ferrata, VTT, road cycling. Have not regretted the decision and enjoy hosting guests in the winter months around the Alpe d'Huez ski domaine, and in the summer pointing guests in the right direction for cycling and walking.
