About the property

This spacious chalet offers design, surprising extras and exceptional service.

A traditional Oisans farmhouse in a stunning mountain setting, this is a catered chalet that bewitches you with rustic charm and authenticity. Thankfully the old house has not been too tarted up- it is not a chichi place pretending to be a farmhouse, it is a farmhouse.

Catered Chalet Lingayoni is a joy and proves that design can introduce a sense of calm, an atmosphere of peace and relaxation.

The chalet provides a vast space of almost 600m2 spread out on 3 floors and is divided in 4 luxury apartments called Cascade, Belledonne, Les Rousses and Loft.

On the ground floor guests find the communal area set out as a superb and very stylish dining room which oozes unique character. This nicely decorated dining room is ideal for large groups and has vaulted ceilings, ample sofa space and a contemporary designed fireplace. Split-level you will find a television room with games console, dvd player and satellite channels where you can watch a film in peace or where your children can play to their hearts' content.

Inside, beneath the surface of this beautiful, traditional alpine farmhouse is a superb sauna room boasting a very spacious sauna, small lounge area and Italian walk-in shower with separate waterfall shower.

Outside, Chalet Lingayoni provides a stunning terrace with mountain view, lounge bed and to top this all, a 6 seating high-end hot tub.

The first floor is divided in three apartments, named Cascade, Les Rousses and Belledonne. Cascade (45m2) offers a double bedroom with en-suite jacuzzi shower, separate toilet, living room with bordering terrace with superb mountain and forest view. Belledonne (75m2) is divided in two double or twin bedrooms with the possibility of putting an extra bed in one of the rooms, one separate toilet, one bathroom, superb living room with high ceiling and wooden beams, wood stove and bordering private garden. Les Rousses (80m2) boasting two double or twin bedrooms one with en-suite jacuzzi shower, one family room with double bed and adult bunk bed, two separate toilets, two bathrooms, beautiful living room with under floor heating, wood stove and bordering terrace

On the second floor the masterpiece Loft (120m2) offers four double or twin rooms one with en-suite jacuzzi shower, one separate toilet, one bathroom, a breathtaking double height living room with stunning old wooden beams, rotating wood stove, superb natural light and balcony covering the dramatic peaks of the Belledonne mountain range.

All apartments are equipped with flat screen tvs, dvd player, satellite tv and offer many design features. Within the structure of this luxurious ski chalet, our guests can enjoy complete privacy by being on their own in their sumptuous private living room.

Catered Chalet Lingayoni is nestled at 1300m, in the hamlet Le Bessey which is situated in the very heart of the Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine de Ski. This hamlet, with its enigmatic name redolent of a mysterious past, is constructed in the traditional style of the Oisans and include ancient barns, water fountains and wash houses. Come and discover its friendly and natural ambiance with ski chalet Lingayoni being a charming and traditionally decorated chalet.

From enjoying all the fun of the snow to feel great in the fresh air, in the magic of winter, every day is a different experience. The Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine de Ski is a heavens playground: 250 km of slopes, free-ride itineraries, two snow parks, a high altitude and an outstanding geographical situation combine to provide something for everyone, including children and beginners. Ski resort Oz has the charm and authenticity of a family resort and the centre of the resort is exclusively preserved for pedestrians. Shops, services and restaurants are all very close by. Children can enjoy themselves on the nursery slopes, while parents enjoy the sun and share happy family moments.

The Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine de Ski is part of the Oisans mountain region. In the winter we offer our guests a complementary on-call shuttle service to and from the slopes, hassle free throughout the whole day.

A true summer and winter paradise and for mountain – and nature lovers it is the place to be. Whether you are drawn to typical mountain sports or are more attracted by traditional pursuits, you will find an activity that will appeal to you.

Beside all the sporting and summer activities catered Chalet Lingayoni is an escape destination, as you approach the chalet, you find yourself in an unspoiled natural setting, illuminated by the surrounding pin forest and the gentle sound of the water fall. It's beautiful and peaceful setting creates an atmosphere of pure joy and our team ensure that every aspect of the service is seamless and to anticipate your every need. Sip on a perfectly mixed cocktail and laze your day away on one of the comfy loungers, while we prepare much loved revisited local specialties.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned from a great week with friends and family we booked after staying at the sister chalet in Vaujany last year which was also great. Excellent hosts and really looked after us all, ferrying us back to and from Oz station village where the Poutran & Alpette lifts are although the drive is approx 5 mins away. The cooking was excellent and nothing was too much trouble.



Oz is a small village with only a few restaurants and bars so if you want a quiet and family oriented trip then this is the place for you. This was perfect for us for a couple of drinks at the end of a long days ski in a relaxed atmosphere before being picked-up each evening, although the 40 somethings and kids had a great boogie at the Folie Douce at the top of the Marmotte 1 lift in Alpe Duez one sunny afternoon !

Great winter holidays !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience thanks to an exceptional team on site but also through the overall Small Wonders staff from booking to the way back home. We enjoyed every bit of it ! How great to wake up with a hearty and delicious breakfast waiting for you... When we were ready to go up the mountain, we would be brought by private shuttle and have a nice time on the slopes before to go back "home" (as it always felt like home...) for tea and cake. The evening dinner was amazing and relaxing in the hot tub or sauna whenever you want is certainly a good taste of luxury. We will definitely come back.

Absolutely fabulous :)

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and 2 children (ages 4 and 6) stayed at Chalet Lingayoni in July of this year. From the moment we stepped onto the property we were amazed by the beauty of the surroundings and the Chalet itself. Our apartment in the chalet consisted of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, living room and kitchen. Everything was new and super-clean!

The downstairs area where breakfast and dinner is served is so beautiful and the food at the chalet is to die for. The couple running the chalet were wonderful. They were so helpful for and gave us lots of information about the area. Our kids also had a wonderful time. There is so much to do for the little ones and the Wii downstairs is great.

You will not regret staying at The Lingayoni - we can't wait to come back to it soon :)
