Since 1936, Alpe d’Huez has expanded at an altitude of 1860m on the southern flank of the Grandes Rousses Massif. Also called “The Island in the Sunshine”, this resort enjoys long periods of sunlight (an average of 300 sunny days per year) and a particularly active microclimate. Only 1 hour away from Grenoble and less than 5 hours from Paris, Alpe d’Huez is a great play ground with varied activities to enjoy with your family and friends. The name “Lifestyle Resort” is justified by the resort’s natural features and richness. The resort has been awarded the regional Reception Trophy in 2003, and the Quality Charter for an ever growing number of rental accommodations, its large number of ski-related and not ski-related activities, its ski lifts, 4 itineraries with a vertical drop of 2000 meters and slopes such as the Sarenne, the longest slope in the world with a length of 16 kilometres. At an altitude of 1450m, overlooking the Sarenne gorge, lies Huez, offering the quaintness of a mountain village just a few kilometers away from an international mountain resort. The calmness, comfort and authenticity of this village provide the perfect setting for holidays.
