The chalet

Nested in the heart of an old mountain hamlet, next to the village chapel and its 400-years old linden tree.

What used to be the old grain storage of the village is now transformed into a large chalet with a light open space living area with kitchen and sunny balcony. The characteristic rooms are spacious with contemporary furniture.

Would you like to stay in an authentic mountain village, living between the locals? Then La Balme, hamlet of Auris-en-Oisans is the right place for you! With the typical small streets and houses build in thick stonewalls, this is the ideal spot to live amongst the 'montagnards'.

Located on an excellent rock, you enjoy a 360° view over the valley and the surrounding mountains. The sun is almost always present!

Cars are parked at the entrance of the hamlet; the streets are one big play garden for kids with lots of places for sledging.

At a less than 10min drive, you find the ski resort of Alpe d'Huez with shops and restaurants. We can offer a private shuttle service to the station with our minibus.
