An apartment in L’Alpe d’Huez: Discover the French Alps!
Book now one of our private accommodations in L’Alpe d’Huez. The place is situated at the transition of the two mountain ranges Oisans and Grandes Rousses. While ski tourism could develop much faster in other areas, L’Alpe d’Huez was long regarded as an insider tip. One reason for this was the difficult access via the long mountain road marked by numerous hairpin bends. However, this changed abruptly in 1968, when L’Alpe d’Huez organised the bobsleigh competitions as part of the Olympic Games. The town enjoys a special reputation among cycling professionals. Since 1976, L’Alpe d’Huez has been the destination of the Tour de France almost every year. The 13.8 kilometre climb from Le Bourg-d’Oisans is considered to be one of the most selective sections of the entire tour, with a gradient of up to 14.8%. Although today the place is primarily associated with major sporting events, there are also attractions for historically interested visitors, who will be disappointed by the couchsurfing offer in L’Alpe d’Huez. Until the 13th century, silver was mined on the surrounding slopes. The excavations have not been completed yet, but some sections can already be visited. L’Alpe d’Huez also benefits from its proximity to Grenoble, the capital of the department of Isère. Here, the two rivers Isère and Drac unite, which probably also caused the Celts to establish a first settlement exactly at this place. Grenoble is especially important as an educational and cultural centre. Worth seeing is the Musée de Grenoble, that offers the third largest art collection of France. But the landmarks of the city are the fortifications. A total of five forts should secure the Isèretal in southern direction. As Grenoble was spared from acts of war, the fortifications still present themselves in their well preserved original condition.
Your private accommodation in L’Alpe d’Huez as starting point for a journey through the Rhône-Alpes region
If you travel from your Apartment in Grenoble further north, you will reach Lyon. The third largest city in France, Lyon owes its economic rise mainly to its location at the confluence of the Rhône and Saône rivers, both of which are important inland waterways. Your Apartment in Lyon will take you to the centre of French silk weaving, which has been the city’s main source of income since the Renaissance. The most important landmark is the Basilica Notre-Dame de Fourvière, which is visible from afar due to its location on a hill. Film history was written in the “Street of the First Film”, in which the Lumière brothers first made pictures run in 1895. Although Lyon’s cuisine is kept very simple, the city is considered the capital of culinary delights and relies largely on regional products. Further east is Annecy, the capital of the Haute-Savoie département. The town’s landmark is the medieval Annecy Castle, which was built on a rocky promontory above the old town. Today the premises are not only used as a museum, but are also an integral part of the programme of the Festival d’Animation Annecy. The main prize, the Cristal d’Annecy, is considered one of the most important awards in the field of animation. From your accommodation in Annecy one of the most beautiful motorways of the French Alps takes you as far as Turin. Numerous magnificent buildings characterize the picture of the well-preserved old town. Book with us a private holiday apartment in Turin and let yourself be enchanted by the ivory-coloured facade of the Palazzo Madama. The palace was converted into a residence in the 17th century by the influential rulers of the Savoy dynasty and today houses the renowned Museo Civico d’Arte Antica. A popular excursion destination is the pilgrimage church Superga, which can be easily reached by a rack railway. Apart from the viewing platform on the roof of the Mole Antonelliana, here you will find the most beautiful view over Turin.
