À propos de ce logement
Lovely 2 bedroom apartment with mezzanine (3rd Bedroom) in centre of charming village of Venosc. Connected to skiing and MTB/VTT in Les 2 Alpes by gondola and ideal for road cyclists wanting to ride Alpe d'Huez.
The apartment is located above a cafe with fantastic home cooked organic food. It is generally only open in the day, so no noise issues at night. To assess the apartment, you literally walk through the cafe terrace to the right. Once in the main front door, upstairs, the apartment is the one on the right. Off the entrance there is a separate toilet and sink. You then pass through the kitchen. This has a large fridge/freezer, 3 gas and 1 electric hob, dish washer and a microwave/oven. (unfortunately there is no large oven).
You then move into the main living room area with views over the mountains. Here there is a TV/DVD/VCR. French television is possible using the small areal, but slightly unreliable. We are looking at more reliable UK and French telly options. There is a small MP3 docking station with speakers. The dinning area has a large table with space for 8 people. There is comfy seating, including a click-clack double sofa bed.
On the same floor is one of the bedrooms with two sets of bunk-beds. There is also a small bathroom with bath/shower and a sink. From the living room is a large balcony with garden table and chairs. Very sunny in the afternoon, with uninterrupted views over the mountains and the Ecrins National Park.
Upstairs there is a further single bed on a mezzanine with a portable screen to offer a little privacy. Here there is a second smaller bathroom with a shower, sink and a washing machine. Finally there is a larger double bedroom.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
I am usually available to meet you with the keys and to show you around the apartment and answer any questions you have. If for any reason I am unavailable, then I will arrange for a friend to meet you, or for you to pick up the keys in a pre arranged hiding place.
Venosc is for those who want to be close to the action of a large ski resort, but without the noisy nights that go with staying there. It is a peaceful beautiful village with a pedestrianised cobbled centre and very safe for children.
Similarly in the summer people chose this village for the peace and tranquility compared to the crazy cycling town of Bourg d'Oisans.
In addition you get great prices and more flexibility with dates and you length of stay.
The gondola link to Les Deux Alpes is open from early December until late April and again from late June until late August. It is open from 8am - 7pm in the winter and closes at 8pm in the summer.
There are infrequent busses from outside the bottom gondola station, heading up into the National Park or back to Bourg d'Oisans and free shuttle buses around the resort at the top of the lift.
The apartment has free internet, with 20mb, which is fast enough to stream your Netflix and other online television accounts.
The apartment has a 200t hot water tank which heats for pre set periods over night and in the afternoon. If you find that there is not enough hot water, then the property manager will show you how to set the heating to constant.
The price quoted is without sheets or towels. There is an extra €10 charge per person if you want these provided. This is payable in cash on arrival.
We ask that there is no smoking in the apartment. If you need to smoke, please do so on the balcony. Thank you.
We also request that you turn down the heaters if you are out during the day. The apartment heats up very quickly when you turn them back up on your return. These heaters burn a lot of electricity, so keeping them turned down will keep our prices down for future clients.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 7 jours avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement à hauteur de 50 % et les frais de service vous sont remboursés intégralement.
