Chalet Arnou is a detached traditional wooden chalet perched high in the picturesque mountain village resort of Vaujany.

Conveniently placed for four restaurants, the supermarket all within a 2 minute walk and a great kindergarten five minutes away. Excellent views of the waterfall and down the valley.

In winter the large cable car gives direct access to 2,800m and access to the massive Alpe D'Huez ski area as well as the Montfrais ski bowl with children ski schools, restaurants and snack bar. In the summer the spectacular village is a well locatedi centre for hiking and mountain biking with the famous mega avalanche and the VTT network all accessed from the resort. It is also a base for road cycle racing and canoeing and wind surfing are all possible nearby.

Winter dates are based on Sunday changeover. This is a much easier day to travel with cheaper flights and much less traffic. We can try accommodate Saturday changes if required.

About the Owner

I am the owner Andrew Goodman who helped design Chalet Arnou back in 2012 as our own family chalet. The premium alpine resort of Vaujany Alpe d'Huez, is a resort village which offers a unique traditional atmosphere combined with some of the most sophisticated facilities anywhere in the French Alps. Its the ideal holiday village winter or summer.

The massive Alpe d'Huez ski domaine is immediately on hand which turns into a wonderful and relaxing playground during the summer months. If it's the adrenalin of mountain biking, road biking, white water rafting and adventure holidays we do it. If it's the relaxation of saunas, swimming, walking tennis & fine cuisine look no further

We love Vaujany and know you will too!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Deborah described her holiday:

'The location is really lovely and we were cosy and warm. The kitchen was well equipped and the double fridge is a bonus with children. The furniture is beautiful and the place feels so relaxed. The lovely little touches you left for us and the children were also appreciated. The key free system for the chalet was very convenient, especially with all of us coming and going at different times.'

Krystyna summed up her stay:

'Thank you for all your helpful advice and assistance with making our week in your idyllic chalet in vaujany such a success. We have had a superb week's skiing in a most delightful place - absolutely perfect!'

Very Accommodating

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable chalet, with an unusually spacious lounge/dining area on the top floor. (Although we didn't have children with us, it would be well suited to a family holiday.) James and Whitney looked after us very well, in particular, being prepared to go out of their way to help us out. (One of our group struggled to walk in ski boots.) The well planned village escalators meant it was easy to get to & from the ski lift, which provides excellent access into the Alpe d'Huez ski area. I would happily return to this chalet.
