Located in the heart of Alpe d'Huez, Chalet la Breche is in one of the best locations right next to the slopes. The traditional style chalet provides access to an outdoor hot tub and two infra-red saunas, and due to its large size it's the perfect base for a group skiing holiday. Chalet la Breche is available to book exclusively as well as room by room.

Ski in/ski out location 

If you're one to maximise your miles, this chalet is the perfect choice for you. Chalet la Breche is all about convenient skiing with ski in/ski out access, especially in good snow conditions. This chalet has a superb location on the side of the piste which runs past the chalet down to the 'Telecentre' lift going up to the ski school meeting place and the DMC chairlift. 

High standard chalet

The style is that of a Scandinavian chalet yet with a beautiful contemporary feel. There has been a lot of thought gone in to the planning of the chalet with little extras thrown in to the design, like modern wooden bath tubs or new showers, double basins and heated towel rails in the en-suite bathrooms. The beautifully furnished property is set over four floors with eight comfortable bedrooms all with balconies.

Après ski chalet

The contemporary open plan lounge and dining area has a large roaring fireplace which is a great place to sit on the sofas and enjoy reminiscing about the day's adventures. There's an après-ski room on the lower ground floor with two infra-red saunas and a hot tub outside, or you can catch up with friends and family in the TV room. If you want to extend the party and explore, the resort centre is right on your doorstep where you'll find a number of bars and restaurants.

Why is this an Inghams' Choice property?

Skiing and snowboarding in Alpe d'Huez

This resort has everything to please no matter what your skiing ability is from wide open blues and greens to challenging black runs. There's 249km of skiing, giving you endless opportunities to explore and visit the different villages without feeling that you are doing the same run more than once. The altitude of the resort means that there is an excellent snow record, with the Sarenne Glacier and over 900 snow cannons, even late season skiing will have great conditions.

The Pic Blanc summit at 3,330m affords breath-taking views across the whole of the Southern Alps and provides a wonderful starting point for the Sarenne descent - one of the longest black runs in the world at fully 16km from top to bottom!
