About Andy Christodolo or Gillian Lawrence

Andy and Gill have worked in hospitality all over the world for many years. We are experienced at making sure everything goes just right when you visit us. As we live in our property, you can chat to us anytime about your holiday.

Andy Christodolo or Gillian Lawrence purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Andy Christodolo or Gillian Lawrence chose Oz

Oz en Oisans village is in the perfect place to enjoy the winter season. Its really convenient for the lifts which in the winter take you directly to Alpe d'Huez and its fabulous skiing. We offer more space that almost any other chalet and all rooms are ensuite. Some of the suites have 2 bedrooms. All suites can be double or twins, you choose. Our food is cooked an experienced chef and our wine is AOC quality.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Le Château d'Oz is in a beautiful traditional mountain village and was built over 400 years ago. It used to be used as a farmhouse but we have made some improvements to it and its now a very comfortable country house. As its the biggest house in the village, it has always been called 'Le Château'. We are just down the road from the Ski lifts and Alpe d'Huez so you are close enough to be convenient yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I've traveled throughout the Alps and over the years have stayed in countless hotels, inns, and B&Bs. I have my pick of places to stay and resorts to ski but I keep coming back year after year to Chateau d'Oz and Alpe d'Huez. Outside of five-star hotels and Michelin-star restaurants, the French don't really (ahem) excel at customer service. And the Alps can be particularly disappointing with such strange practices as towel surcharges, 80s-era furniture, and (my favourite) the 10:00 a.m. check out. Charming owners Andy (manager) and Gill (chef) provide an experience that combines excellent accommodations, delectable meals, and friendly service. So I wasn't surprised this year to meet the same families as last Christmas because once you stay at the Chateau d'Oz, you won't stay anywhere else. We'll be returning with a Spyns Tour de France group this July and I can't wait.

Fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay for skiing, amazing food and hosts who couldn't do a enough for us. Really close to the ski station but feels like you're in a quaint real French village. Brilliant for family groups with kids.

Another great half term

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to Gill and Andy, Martine and Anthony for giving us another fantastic week. We are a family of four and enjoyed our stay in the top room, complete with kitchen-even a dishwasher! All very spacious, especially the large bathroom ! We enjoyed the fabulous cuisine-from breakfast, afternoon tea and sumptuous evening meal in relaxed company-following our pre dinner drinks in the homely and comfortable lounge. We enjoyed chatting to the other families and our children loved the freedom and space in the chateaud'oz. Andy and Gill were both very helpful with advice re driving to the slopes-just 10 minutes away and putting on snow chains. We had a fabulous week skiing with lots of powder snow and some sun- making tobogganing great fun on the last day. We can't wait to come back next year.

So good we came back the same season!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at Le Chateau d'Oz for the first time at the very beginning of the ski season in December, we have just returned from a second ski break there, and this time we took friends along!

We love the warm welcome at Le Chateau d'Oz, chatting with the owners and staff over delicious dinners every night, and the super-comfy beds. On being given a different room to last time, we discovered that each suite in the chateau has something different to recommend it. Both had plenty of storage, warm cosy beds, sofas, and functional kitchens, but the first room had a balcony with wonderful views, a mini drying room for ski gear, and a bath that was on the small side, whereas the second had no balcony or drying room (still had the views, just not the balcony), but a bigger bedroom and a full length bath. My personal preference was for the second room, but I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong room-wise.

As previously, Andy and Gill were generous with their time and knowledge and happily provided tips on skiing as well as plentiful encouragement to the first-time skier in our party. We were grateful to Andy for his help with booking ski lessons and equipment.

We again got on really well with chalet staff Leo and Laura, who are great fun and really helpful, and spent their precious time off sharing their knowledge of the resort with us and introducing the braver amongst us to new bits of exciting off piste!

We also really appreciate the Chateau's flexibility. Whereas it seems a lot of places will only take skiers for whole week holidays, this isn't always practical, so I'm sure we're not the only ones who value the opportunity to pop over for a long weekend. At only two hours' drive from Lyon airport (and even less from Grenoble), hardly any time is wasted in the transfer, and we were again able to ski all morning on our last day before catching an evening flight home.

Thanks again to all at Le Chateau d'Oz for another wonderful stay!

Absolutely Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Le Château d’Oz for three nights (from August 31st to September 2nd of 2013). We completely loved the location and our hosts, Andy and Gill, who were both very hospitable and accommodating. We loved that Andy and Gill joined us and the other guests at the dinner table each evening. They also know the area extremely well and offered many lovely suggestions for things to do, scenic routes to take via car or cycling. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, and clean and the windows opened completely to a stunning view of the Alps. Our room faced the front of the Chateau and had a large living room with a small kitchen and a large bathroom…fully equipped for any stay.

We found this Château via tripadvisor.com after reading a few comments from previous customers. Many months prior to our stay, we had corresponded with Andy over email to arrange for rental of a road bike in order to bike Alpe d’Huez. A full carbon Giant road bike was ready and waiting for us when we arrived – now that is excellent customer service! We also loved the dinners that Gill cooked and the local red wine! Gill is a wonderful chef, very talented with both the presentation and flavors of each meal. We enjoyed talking to Andy and Gill during dinner and hearing about the other guests’ outings from the day. If tripadvisor.com had more than a 5-star system, Le Chateau d’Oz would be more than deserving. We highly recommend Le Château d’Oz to anyone who plans to stay in the alps, whether for a skiing trip, cycling trip, hiking trip, etc.

Andy, Gill… thank you very much for making the Alps part of our French vacation, a truly unforgettable experience. Don’t be surprised if we book another stay with you soon.

Car: recommended

Le Château d'Oz is in the beautiful and spectacular Oisans region, part of the huge Grand Rousses/Alpe d'Huez ski area.

Parking is easy and close to the lifts. Queues are rare, even in peak season.

Shops have equipment for all standards and all snow sports.

Lots of snow making so there is a reliable run back down to the resort.
