Xmas skiing holiday on the slopes of Alpe d'Huez for 9 nights staying in a 5 star rated apartment plus car hire
The alternative Christmas day... picture it, just got off the slopes legs up against the wall for 20 minutes, quick shower then out to enjoy the apres ski and festive atmosphere of Alpe d'Huez not a wrinkly sprout or stinky relative in sight! If that's the Xmas you want (and we know you're out there lol) then this Xmas break wont disappoint.
Alpe d'Huez is a little over 2 and a half hours drive from Lyon airport so not too long to get up there and enjoy the snowy mountains. Set at 1890 metres Alpe d'Huz town is at a decent height to catch the early snowfall. Last Christmas (don't say I gave you my heart, it stays with you all day lol) there was approx 19 cm of the white stuff at village level and a decent base of 60 cm higher up on the slopes. Naturally the higher the resort the better your chances of being blessed with a great big dump! Although we still recommend praying to the all mighty snow gods lol

Here's a snapshot of what's on offer
This is a review from someone who stayed at the property!
"The apartment was a typical French Apt, compact but has everything you need, clean, tidy and is well maintained. As with any ski holiday its the location which in my view is of prime importance. (Walking miles in ski boots and carrying gear is not the what you want to be doing every day) This apt is ideally placed in that you only need to walk across the road and then step into your bindings and ski 100 metres to the nearest lift.(Chair or Gondola)
Any people with small children note that the ski kindergarteen is right behind the building.
The main centre of the town is about 10mins walk away (in normal shoes) but there is a mall type shopping area with bars and restaurants supermarkets just outside the building.
The skiing covers a huge area and caters for all grades and less experianced skiiers are able to reach all of the areas.
I live in Wales (UK) and was able to organise the holiday from home via the internet and e-mail to the owner with no problems at all. Transfer of funds for payment was just filling in a form in the bank,no problems. We had a great holiday and would recommend it to others."
