Vaujany is a traditional French ski resort with all the typical mountain village charm you could ask for, ideally situated less than an hour from Grenoble. Opposite the superb Massif des Grandes Rousses mountain range, this ski resort in the Northern Alps has kept abreast of modern techniques and equipment while managing to preserve an authentic charm and its local traditions. Vaujany is linked by cable car to the Grandes Rousses Alpe d’Huez ski area allowing you to enjoy the benefits of this superb, large scale ski area as well as the advantages of booking a ski holiday rental in a typical French ski resort, in the stunning Isere region, in the heart of the French Alps.
You want to ski through breath-taking landscapes in one of the best ski areas in the French Alps but you prefer to stay in a holiday rental in a quiet, traditional ski resort? Then Vaujany is the right choice for your next ski holiday in France. Vaujany is linked to the Alpe d’Huez - Grand Domaine ski area offering 250 km of snowy slopes that link 6 ski resorts together including the popular, lively ski resort of Alpe d'Huez and the smaller resorts of Auris, Oz and Villard Reculas. Downhill skiing, snowboarding in the snowpark at Montfrais, ski touring, cross-country skiing among the fir trees and frozen lakes and slalom skiing – mix your pleasures on your next ski holiday! Vaujany’s own ski area is small and family-friendly with 30 slopes and a dedicated area where young children can get a taste of snow sports in complete safety.
From your holiday rental in Vaujany, you can start hiking in your snowshoes in the magnificent natural environment of this pretty ski resort in the Alps. Discover the Oisans mountains, the plateaus and enchanting, snow-covered mountain forests. This sporty but relaxing activity makes a wonderful change from skiing or snowboarding on the slopes among the crowds allowing you to discover the untouched nature and enjoy the complete silence that reigns in the mountains. Dog sledding or snowmobiling are also great ways to discover the frozen lakes, pretty valleys and maybe meet some of the local wildlife. At 3330m the view from the Pic Blanc offers a stunning panorama of the Ecrins Natural Park and the Mont Blanc. Not forgetting, of course, the more traditional ski holiday activities such as ice skating, tobogganing and the unmissable torchlight descents organised by the local ski schools. What more could you ask for to make the perfect winter sports holiday with your family!
Why not combine your ski holiday with a spot of culture! There is certainly plenty to see in Vaujany as this ski resort has a rich historical and cultural heritage. After strolling through the narrow streets of the village and admiring the traditional houses, chalets and fountains, the farm and the bell tower, visit the Maison de la Faune to learn all about the animal life and the forest in and around the Oisans area. Not forgetting the Espace Patrimoine that traces 100 years of history of the village of Vaujany in images. And after all this activity, enjoy a well-deserved raclette or fondue in your cosy Odalys ski chalet or comfortable apartment. You have only one thing to do in Vaujany - enjoy your winter sport holiday!
