Skiing and Cycling in the Oisans: Oz is fully integrated into the huge Alpe d'Huez ski area with around 250km of pistes. This is one of the highest ski resorts in Europe with a snow-sure and sunny aspect. There are runs for all abilities and access from Oz to all kinds of slopes is both quick and convenient via two high speed gondolas.Queuing is rare even at peak times.
Our region is famous for having some of the best road cycling routes in Europe. Legendary mountain cols such as the Galibier, Glandon, Croix de Fer and Lautaret are on the doorstep while the Telegraphe and La Madeleine are a step further. We have secure storage for bikes and can arrange rental bikes for those that do not bring their own. These range from the relatively modest to full Carbon frames, etc. Bring your own pedals and they will be fitted. Mountain biking is also well catered for here with many marked trails. In the summer season the ski lifts are open and have been specially designed to carry bikes as well as people up the mountain.
Family activities in the SUMMER: We are often asked what is there for children to do by parents concerned that they will be stuck in the middle of rural France with nothing for the children to do.
Its not like that here, there are so many things to do for adults and children of all ages.
Oz has a Kamikaze park which features zip lining in the trees. On Lac Verney, just below Le Chateau, there are dinghies, windsurfers pedaloes and canoes. On local rivers there is rafting, tubing, canyoning and kayaking. Activities like Archery and Tennis are well organized along with a children's creche. Mini golf for budding masters or players up for a challenge. There is proper golf for grown-ups too. There are three outdoor pools, a paddling one for small children, medium for most kids and an adult one with a diving board. Local lakes have beaches with swimming and water sports.There is a children's farm with donkeys, ponies, pigs and rabbits etc. In 2013 a full size ice skating rink has been opened in Vaujany a short drive from Oz.
Holiday activities: For Alpinists there is summer climbing on some spectacular peaks. You can warm up with some bouldering or on some of the permanent climbing walls including Allemonts spectacular needle. Alternatively there are more routes than you climb in a season.
There are Via Ferrata for those want a taste of climbing without the need for experience or training.
Down in the valleys there are walks and bike trails in the woods with minimal gradients, great for getting up to speed or for small children. There are great drives through the mountains and along the lakes to traditional market towns. Borg d'Oisans, just down the road, has a lively market on Saturdays.
There is also an local farm that makes tasty goats cheese. The cheese comes in various forms, from the fresh milk-white to the hairy blue 'sec' that looks pretty scary, but actually tastes quite mild and delicious.

Perfect Place to Relax
About the Owner
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.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed in late July for the Alpe d'Huez triathlon. A perfect location for this race and cycling in the area. Andy and Gill are gracious hosts and extremely helpful. A hearty breakfast buffet. Our suite was spacious and had its own patio. We would definitely come back. Don't miss this first class accommodation!

Perfect Place to Relax
We wanted a relaxing holiday & that is what we got. It didn't matter to Gill if we arrived for breakfast at 7.30 or 9.30. We spent our days walking or relaxing without having to keep an eye on the time. Andy is extremely knowledgeable about the area & Gill is an amazing cook who is happy to alter her menus to accommodate fussy eaters such as myself. We are already looking forward to our next stay at Chateau D'Oz.
A wonderful stay
Excellent, nothing more to say really. Don't go anwhere else if you want to avoid disappointment.
Excellent for skiing base
Great place to stay for skiing holiday. Andy and Gill are very hospitable and looked after us really well. The rooms are not rooms but suites and very spacious. Easy access to the slopes and Andy excellent guide. Gill's food is fab.
Fantastic family New Year Break
Le Chateau d'Oz was an ideal getaway for our New Year skiing break. Enough piste and off-piste to keep our teenager happy and fabulous hospitality and gastronomy to make us want to come back again in the summer. Lovely village, great views from spacious rooms and easy to get to. We went as a family but we could imagine this being a great place with friends too.
Cycling in the Alps
I booked a room/apartment for myself but it could easily take four or five. Very confortable and the kitchen was a godsend once I had returned from cycling. The breakfast was normal continental but the evening dinners were out of this world!
If you want to go cycling near Alpe D'Huez, you are so close and there are other mountains and the Marmotte route nearby.
Autumn Break at Chateau d'Oz
A one week visit in September to the French Alps, a wonderful week of weather and accommodation at Chateau d'Oz. Very clean and comfortable apartments, with great service and helpful tips on travelling/sight seeing in the immediate area from Andy and Gill. Whilst staying took advantage on a few nights to eat in, food excellent and accompanied by local wines. Overall highly recommended.
From the Owner
“Oz en Oisans village is in the perfect place to enjoy both the summer and winter seasons. Its really convenient for the lifts which in the winter take you directly to Alpe d'Huez and its fabulous skiing, and in July and August open up to take both mountain bikers and walkers up the mountains. Its close to the Tour de France routes, the famous 21 bends and the great cols of the Alps. Its quiet location means we love to hear the birds and the river running close by.”
Activity and Interests
Le Château d'Oz is in the beautiful and spectacular Oisans region of the French Alps near Alpe d'Huez and Grenoble. Set in the traditional village of Oz en Oisans it is a haven of peace and tranquility but with access to some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. This area is good to visit all year round. In the winter we are part of the huge Grand Rousses/Alpe d'Huez ski area. During the summer cycling dominates the sporting activities but there are many other things to do as well. Les Ecrins National Park is on the doorstep with its high mountain plateaus and dramatic 3000m peaks, a paradise for walkers and climbers. Despite the fact that this is one of the best places for an active sports holiday Le Château is an excellent place to snooze in the shadow of the trees in our garden, hearing nothing but the local stream, the breeze in the leaves and the birds. Videos of Le Chateau can be seen on youtube.
Other Activities: Donkey trekking, canyoning, childrens farm, kite surfing
Golf: The Golf International de Grenoble has a spectacular 18 holes ringed by mountains which is open all year and less than an hour away. There are also several interesting 9 holes right up in the mountains which are only open during the summer.
Ski: Oz en Oisans is part of the larger Grand Rousses area which is best known by its largest village, Alpe d'Huez. Le Château d'Oz is connected by a regular free ski bus that leaves from near the bottom of the driveway or you can drive in about 7 min to the lifts. Parking is easy and close to the lifts. Queues are rare, even in peak season. Access to one of the largest ski resorts in the world is fast and convenient. Excellent ski school for all ages. Shops have equipment for all standards and all snow sports. Lots of snow making so a reliable run back down to the bottom.
FREE Transfers can be arranged from Grenoble airport in the winter, December to April, for up to 8 persons on a first come first served basis
We can arrange transfers from Lyon airport in the summer.

From the Owner
“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.”
