Character Ski Chalet  

La Source Ski Chalet, close to Alpe d'Huez, France is owned and managed by Michael Baldwin – ski enthusiast, mountaineer and hotelier. The ski chalet is a converted old stone barn south facing with panoramic views of the surrounding area. It has been renovated to an extremely high standard, keeping the charm and character of the building whilst creating modern facilities. There are 4 twin bedrooms all with private facilities, and a family room also with private facilities in the existing chalet. 

A new extension provides a further 3 ensuite bedrooms (2 twin bedrooms and a bunk room), providing in total accommodation for 16 catered guests at La Source Ski Chalet.

A spiral staircase leads to the spectacular and spacious living/dining area with vaulted ceiling, wood burning stove and comfortable sofas. There is a separate south-facing sun lounge overlooking a large exterior wood decking, giving stunning views over the valley and mountain peaks. The recently installed 5 person outdoor Jacuzzi spa provides relaxing massage treatment and aromatherapy – perfect for unwinding after an energetic day on the ski slopes.

Home comforts include: satellite TV, videos, CD and DVD players, a wide selection of books, magazines, board games and an internet connection.

Great Food 

After a day on the ski slopes, we provide a restoring tea with home-made cake. Following a few hours relaxation we then gather for pre-meal drinks and a four course dinner prepared by our in-house chef in a contemporary style, using local fresh produce supported by a complimentary selection of good French wines. Catering includes:

Morning tea in bed.
Full cooked breakfast - including fruit juice, cereal, fresh bread, croissants, a selection of jams, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
Afternoon tea with homemade cakes, fresh bread, conserves and a selection of teas.
Four course dinner including local French cheese platter and fresh fruit.

Great Views 

From the La Source ski chalet sun lounge & sun deck, there are magnificent views across to the Oisans & Ecrin mountain ranges, and down to Le Bourg d'Oisans, 2000 feet below in the Oisans valley.
Chamois can sometimes be seen grazing in the meadows below the chalet.
