The Hamlet of La Danchère

Lauvitel Lodge lies at the heart of La Danchère , a tiny hamlet in the French Alps.  This magic location gives you the peace, beauty and serenity of being away from it all, at the same time as giving you direct access to the skiing and boarding in winter, and cycling and walking in summer, of Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez, as well as the Ecrins National Park, a great location for holiday makers and sport enthusiasts.

Tranquil mornings, active days and convivial evenings will be the hall mark of your stay in La Danchère.
