About the property

140 sq metres of living space & huge 70sq metre garage for all your skiing, boarding and cycling gear! LARGE WOODEN DECK!

New for 2015 - FREE WIFI in the chalet!!!!

This chalet has TWO LARGE BATHROOMS for your comfort.

Sleeps up to 10 in 4 bedrooms. The larger bedrooms on the second floor share access to a wide balcony with fantastic views. The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom and walk through wardrobe. A third large bedroom and family bathroom make up the rest of the second floor.

On the first floor there is a large 40 sq metre lounge with dedicated dining area. The kitchen is fully fitted with all appliances including dishwasher, washing machine etc. The lounge opens out via two separate patio doors onto another full width balcony with fantastic views. The fourth bedroom is on this floor along with a cloakroom

VAUJANY - THE GRANDES ROUSSES: Perched in a panoramic position at 1250 m, the resort of Vaujany is a thrilling place to discover.

Forming a magnificent, rugged backdrop is the Grandes Rousses massif - beautifully viewed from the Chalet.

You need only 45 minutes from Grenoble to arrive at Vaujany. The village resort of Vaujany has installed high-performance ski lifts including a huge 160 person gondola. Go where they take you : in the magic of winter every day is a different experience. From enjoying all the fun of the snow on skis' boards or shoes, to feeling great in the fresh air - perhaps on mountain bikes or road bikes in summer - or simply hiking. In winter and in summer, come and enjoy the extraordinary playground of the Grandes Rousses Massif. You’ll fall for the Oisans’ vast areas of unspoilt countryside.

Local cycling events include the following:


Bourg D'Oisans, Col du Galibier, Col du Telegraphe, Critérium du Duphine Libere, Col de Croix de Fer

THE SKIING - VAUJANY / ALPE D'HUEZ: The 160 person Cable Car system takes you from the village at 3,812 feet to 8,540 feet in minutes.

The next stop up is 10,156 feet at the Pic Blanc looking out on to the Mont Blanc, the Grand Paradis, the Meije and the Ecrin National Park.

Skiing down offers a choice from 220 km of managed slopes of all skill levels . The pistes in french, cover 6,801 feet of altitude variant cutting through gulleys and forests, to a multitude of lift and cable car options, - frankly it's hardly possible to familiarise oneself with the whole ski domain, it being that vast.

Vaujany offers over 7,410 Acres of mountainous snow playground in an attempt to satisfy the desires and ambitions of all kinds of skiers, piste and off-piste, cross-country, competitions, snowboard, ... everybody!

The Vaujany Ski Domain is an integral part of an enormous domain covering 8 village communal territories : Alpe d'Huez , Auris, Clavans, Le Freney d'Oisans, La Garde, Oz en Oisans, Villard Reculas and Vaujany

CONVENENCE OF STAYING IN POUCHERY: Chalet Oz Vue is a brisk 4 minute drive from Vaujany. Don't let this put you off if you think you might prefer to be in a so called 'ski-in / ski-out' location in Vaujany village. Vaujany is NOT ski-in / ski-out as you need to take one of the lifts to get back to the village. So, your skis / boards are already off and being carried when you disembark from the lifts in Vaujany centre.

Conveniently, rather than hobble back to your chalet or apartment - you can simply jump into your car parked close by under cover for free after a drink at one of the local bars and be in the detached Chalet Oz Vue in no time with its huge garage plus dedicated parking for 2 cars .

The rental prices are lower in Pouchery and yet the accommodation is spacious and of very high quality.

About Philip Smith

I love cycling, skiing and hiking, oh and good red wine too! The local Cotes du Rhone is excellent slightly chilled!

Philip Smith purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Philip Smith chose Vaujany

I did research on the best places to combine skiing in winter with cycling in summer and eventually narrowed down to the Vaujany area in the Oisans.

I still remember my first visit on a beautifully crisp December morning in 2008. Fresh snow had fallen overnight but the morning was breathless with brilliant azure skies.

Approaching Les Grandes Rousses from the Grenoble road the whole range covered in snow came instantly into view as I rounded a bend about 15km from Bourg d'Oisans. I had to stop the car just to take in the view and I knew then that this was the place even before I'd chosen the chalet.

What makes this chalet unique

For me the most magical moments are seeing the moonlight reflected on the snow clad peaks and falling asleep hearing the owls hooting to each other!

Very clean, tidy, comfortable and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was very clean, tidy and comfortable and we were warmly welcomed by Peiter & Terese. It was very spacious for our party of 7 but can sleep more. Car parking for a least 2 cars - more if you use the garage. Slightly outside Vaujany, it was a nice quiet situation to get back to after a busy day on the slopes. Overall a very good chalet.

Perfect 'A' accommodation and setting

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't praise our accommodation enough. Chalet Oz Vue has everything you need to complete your holiday in the mountains. Spotlessly clean and comfy beds to match. We loved the decor too. The views were breathtaking and location couldn't have been better as it is close enough to all the amenities (for all age groups) you need at hand yet tucked neatly in a the hillside privately shielded along side 4 other similar properties. We will definitely be going back to stay againand have recommended this beautiful Chalet to all our friends . Thank you for filling holiday with unforgettable memories.

Fantastic resort and extremely comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to you, Phil, & to Pieter and Therese your caretakers)

We had a great week at Oz Vue. We all found the chalet to be extremely comfortable with all the facilities we could have desired. Of course, the resort is fantastic - the snow and skiing were great and we all progressed in technique and scope.

We have witnessed the impressive investment in and gradual development of Vaujany as a year round destination over the past few years and would recommend it to anyone investigating a happy mix of the authentically French and a first rate skiing area. The kids were able to enjoy an additional activity on most days of the holiday - swimming, skating, 10 pin bowling etc - everyone so friendly and helpful.

We always drive to the Alps as this allows for an extension at both ends of the holiday (and, greedily, gives us an extra day skiing on the Saturday before we set off for our overnight stop as the lifts close). We can also build in a civilised lunch on the Sunday before we cross the channel and we have more room for a post holiday supply of French delicacies and wine!

Great chalet near Vaujany

  • 5 of 5

Great base for skiing in Vaujany plus Alpe D'Huez ski region, the chalet is so spacious but still retains a personal homely feel. A wood burning stove makes for cosy warm evenings in the living area, a great space to relax in after the day's skiing. We'll be back.

STOP PRESS! - The Times 21/11/09 - VAUJANY TOP FAMILY RESORT - They said - 'The small French resort has lots of easy slopes but is connected to the bigger Alpe d'Huez if you want more challenging skiing. There is also a fantastic swimming pool and leisure centre.'

Whether its winter skiing and snow boarding or summer cycling and hiking, Vaujany and the Alpe d’Huez / Grandes Rousses domain has it all. The Village of Vaujany is situated at 1250M with a high speed cable car taking you to the top of Pic Blanc at an amazing 3330M. From here there are an amazing 248km of linked pistes to suit all skiing and boarding abilities. From small country roads to solitary mountain passes lost in the clouds, Oisans is a very popular area for cycling. Come and explore the six valleys of this fantastic area with its winding roads, its perched villages, sitting on mountain tops like eagles’ nests, or its more gentle roads opening up its hidden valleys. Alpe d’Huez really is the Mecca of cycling!

Ski: A typical day!

Up at 7.30am. A fresh breakfast of hot coffee and tea with crisp croissants and pain au chocolat or perhaps pain aur raisains (my favourite!)

Zip up to the beautiful village of Vaujany and park free either under cover or outside - both right next to the ski lifts and the ski rental. Collect your gear from your heated locker. No queues - straight into the huge 160-person gondola and you're whisked up to the first stop at 2,000m - Monfrais. A little gentle blue and green slope skiing here or perhaps a lesson or two? Next challenge? OK zip on the gondola up to 2,800m and the Alpe D'Huez area. Splendid wide red runs and the chance to ski back to Vaujany or down to Alpe d,Huez. Best lunch at Lac Besson - not to be missed! Super adventurous? Right - zip up to 3,300m and you're at Pic Blanc - now you're in glacier territory where you can push yourself as far as you want.

Back to Chalet Oz - hot bath light the wood stove, sip the mulled wine - time for a well earned dinner!
