Ski Chalet & Winter Accommodation in the French Alps
Available from December until mid-April, Lauvitel Lodge is the ideal place for families and friends who want to spend the winter holiday together, enjoying the skiing, boarding, snow shoeing and other winter activities from a place that feels like home. For groups of mixed ages, mixed abilities and different desires for a perfect holiday, Lauvitel Lodge gives you the flexibility to fulfil everyone’s preferences. With easy access from Grenoble, Lyon and Geneva, Lauvitel Lodge provides some of the best self-catered accommodation in the French Alps that you will find for large groups.
The Piece de Resistance of Lauvitel Lodge is the spacious and convivial living room for relaxing together in the sofa and chairs around the stone fireplace and sharing meals around the large wooden dining tables. The views are also spectacular with windows looking out onto the surrounding mountains on all three sides. Moreover, preparing food could not be easier, in the large, fully equipped, professional kitchen.
When you need to find your own space, you will be able to withdraw to the comfort of your bedroom, enjoy a relaxing shower or bath and be assured of a good night sleep. With a total of 10 bedrooms, the lodge suits groups between 10 and 26 people. There are 4 bedrooms with ensuite luxury bathrooms, 2 bedrooms with their own shower and 4 bedrooms with shared facilities.
Situated in the hamlet of La Danchere, we are far from it all and close to everything. Skiing from Lauvitel Lodge allows you to take advantage of 3 amazing ski areas including Les 2 Alpes, Alpe d’Huez and La Grave, without the noise and commotion of staying in any one of the big French ski resorts. There is ample parking at the Lodge and the ski lifts and the roads are cleared of snow first thing each day ( 7.00am) and again in the evening (5.00pm) when there is fresh snow.
Most of our clients choose to take the telecabine from Venosc, an 8 minute drive from the Lodge, taking you directly up to Les 2 Alpes. We also have a special arrangement at Go Sport Montagne, with a 20% discount and an invitation to leave your ski equipment overnight, to be dry and ready for the next day. Or you may prefer to do something different and try snow-shoeing to Lauvitel Lake, ski touring in the Belledonne or the cross-country skiing at Ornon.
For your provisions, Bourg d’Oisans is 10 minutes from the Lodge with all the shops and facilities of a small French town, including a large, international Casino supermarket, restaurants, bars, bakers, butchers, pharmacy etc. In addition, Venosc has a small epicierie and it is always possible to pick up extra provisions on the way back down from Les 2 Alpes.
