I visited this beautiful Chalet in februari 2013. Had a great time. Pieter and Therese, the owners, are very helpful to make your holiday a success. The chalet is near the Vaujany gondola to the Alpe d’Huez ski area. And in the evenings a very good meal and bed. Just TOP! Johan V
Really nice place – the hosts were fantastic. The evening meals were excellent as was the breakfast. Room was good with a balcony and spotlessly clean. Definitely recommended. Janet
The perfect place to Ski and relax
It was the second time that we drove up from Lyon where we live to go skiing in our favorite ski resort Alpe d’Huez. The slopes are perfect for demanding skiers and beginners alike. The equipment to transport the skiers are super, even heated seats when it is really cold and good connections throughout this vast ski area. After an intensive day skiing to arrive at Sol Neige is an joyfull experience. The tea is ready with home made cakes ,thereafter a good beer and thereafter Pieter and Therese have prepared a 4 course meal where the also have some preselected bottles of wine to wash it down. Thereafter you role into bed in a fully countryside environment. No car sound to be heard. Perfect nothing more to add ENJOY Erik Postma
We stayed at Solneige in early October and had a wonderful time. The setting of the Chalet is remarkable, high up in the Alps. It is very peaceful and quiet. There are plenty of outdoor activities to take advantage of the location. Pieter and Therese were very hospitable and helpful in providing cycling and hiking tips including lending me an invaluable map to assist with my hike. The rooms are spacious and each have their own separate bathrooms. The dinner we had on our arrival night was delicious as was the breakfast and packed lunch. I would recommend staying at Solneige and our only regret was that we did not stay longer. Note we had a hire car, having travelled from Australia, and it made travelling around this region possible. Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple Eleanor K.
We have just returned from the most amazing family skiing holiday and I don’t know whether I should shout from the rooftops how wonderful the Chalet Solneige is or keep it selfishly really really quiet and share this gem with only a select few 😉 But I suppose it’s only polite to share… From our first contacts with Pieter and Therese over email they were so helpful and warm. They helped and advised regarding ski schools, ski hire, lift passes etc… nothing was too much trouble. And so it continued! From the moment we arrived – tired after a 9 + hour drive from Calais – it was like arriving at a friend’s house not a guest house. We felt entirely welcome. We were 2 families with 3 children ages 6,8 and 10. The children were made to feel as welcome as we were. They were offered their evening meals earlier than adults if we wanted (we chose this as 8 pm bit late for our lot) and they got their own child friendly and fun 3 course meal. The food was simply delicious. Breakfast included croissants, breads, cereals, cheeses, hams, jams, eggs, coffee, tea, juice – certainly more than enough to get onto the slopes with. Upon return at the chalet we were welcomed with delicious cakes and tea. Evening meals were 4 course and exquisite. Firm favourite was Pieter’s nightly cheese stories that accompanied the cheese course 🙂 One night was a pizza night which was very popular and one night we got to explore the restaurants of Vaujany. Again Pieter and Therese were on hand to advise and they helped us book a table. Accommodation was spotlessly clean and bright and spacious with balconies with a great view. We slept very well. The hot tub was very popular at the end of the day to relieve aching muscles. Skiiing: The Chalet is situated a 5 minute drive or bus ride from the base station of Vaujany. I was concerned about not being ski in ski out but needn’t have worried. We took the free shuttle bus daily and it was prompt and not crowded. Pieter and Therese helped to organise ski hire at the most convenient hire shop where you can leave skis boots etc in a locker so as to not have to schlepp them back to the chalet – so convenient! The gondolas from Vaujany then take you up to various ski regions (including where ski school is) and you have the choice of a local lift pass or broader lift pass that includes Alpe D’Huez. For us with kids in ski school the local pass was more than enough and despite being an experienced skier I didn’t get bored – some nice reds and a few blacks too. The slopes were surprisingly quiet for half term with hardly any lift queues. In summary – I wouldn’t look any further for our next skiing holiday! Perfect hosts, perfect accommodation, perfect food, breathtaking scenery and amazing skiing too. What more could you ask for !!?? Go go go – that’s our recommendation! Cat Arthurs
A beautiful chalet with welcoming, knowledgeable hosts combined with exceptional food made our week here the highlight of our skiing vacation. Pieter & Therese went out of their way helping us with planning, transport, ski hire, ticketing etc. to make for a stress free holiday, even to the extent of helping arrange cycle hire in the middle of winter to ride Alpe d’Huez for a memorable 50th birthday event! We were recommended to Chalet Solneige by friends & our high expectations were certainly exceeded. Thank you both & we look forwarded to returning soon to experience the region in a different season. (…and to eat more delicious cheese!) Lee Hines
All around charming
Pieter and Therese have created a nice and cozy chalet for their guests and are wonderful hosts, as well as their daughters. The apt was very comfortable ( 3 sleep and 2 bathrooms) with nice beds and mountain views, even from the (upstairs) bathroom! Vaujany ski and mountain tops are just wonderful. We spent Christmas there with the children and although we didn’t know the other guests, the familiar atmosphere was perfect, the food was really great and served on a beautiful table. Another top points were the jacuzzi in the garden, also with incredible view, and the snow that gave the whole place a magic touch! We highly recommend Chalet Solneige! Rosea from Amsterdam
Relaxing stay in Vaujany
I planned a ski trip to Alpe d huez/ Vaujany and picked Chalet Solneige because of the 3 bedrooms the chalet offered in the appartment in the top floor of the chalet . The appartment was great 3 cosy bedrooms and 2 bathrooms the first 2 rooms are a double bed in 1st then 2 single beds in second room then upstairs in the gods there is another 2 single bed room with adjoining bathroom the chalet has a very relaxed feel and the owners Therese and Pieter are so helpful and kind with loads of good advice about the local area .the location is about 4 mins drive from Vaujany and a car would be best to get about but there is a ski bus that passes also and takes you up to the village the main lift in Vaujany takes you up in 2 stages to Alpe d Huez and is a quick and crowd free way to get high into Alpe d Huez we had a fantastic weeks weather 2 days of snow then 4 days pure blue skies and non stop sunshine great areas to ski and board areas for all abiities from flowing green runs in Alpe d Huez perfect for begginers ,blue runs in Montfrais and Auris and blacks from Pic Blanc ! we loved the atmosphere in la folie douce bar at the top of marrmotes 1 lift great après bar brilliant music We had a night out ice skating in Vaujany great fun in a brand new ice rink We loved the appartment and the relaxed environment all agreed 10 out of 10 we had a carlsberg ski holiday in the Solneige ! My thanks to Therese and Pieter for a great weeks stay Joe A from Liverpool
Lovely and Charming
By entering the gardenddoor we jumped into a very idyllic an charming area. The garden and the Chalet Solneige are very good places for having a calm holiday. Our room was clean and with enough place for all our stuff. The familary atmosphere and the comfort which is offered from Pieter and Therese is extraordinary but not to close. Indivudual breakfast and the diner which is presented by Claudia or Therese herself are very delicious. It is a very stressless place for spending relaxing holidays for bikers, motorcylists and for skiing also. From Solneige you can reach all great Cols very close and enjoy the fascinating world of French Grandes Alpes. Congratulation Therese and Peter and their Team. Kai and Dietmar…
Would recommend very highly for any visit wether it be a romantic weekend away, skiing holiday or like us a cycling holiday. The owners where fantastic, they catered to all your needs. The chalet is beautiful, and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The grounds are wonderful with plenty of different areas to sit and relax and even a hot tube to get rid of all the aches and pains from riding. The breakfasts that where served was very good and you do not leave feeling hungry and the evening meal was faultless every dish was well cooked, full of flavour and well presented. Great value for money. Will good back and stay. Christopher
Croix de Fer and Glandon just up the road
It’s a great location for cycling with Croix de Fer and Glandon just up the road, Alpe d’huez just down the road and Galibier not too far away. Hosts were fantastic, very helpful, multi-lingual, lovely people Tracey from Aus…
Greatest chalet in Alpe d’Huez area!
With a team of 16 skiiers, finding a suitable chalet was not easy this winter, But we did – and what a positive surprice! Pieter and Therese runs a very cosy and nice accommodation serving great breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner! The service was extreamly good and better hosts you cannot find! We even got help with getting ski-passes and a really good discount at the skishop nearby.The rooms are nice, tidy and outside there is a jacuzzi…a warm evening bath looking at the snowclad mountains is just great! The view from the chalet balcony was also stunning! Getting to the Vaujany gondola is easy as the ski-bus stops 40 meters from the chalet. I can only give Solniege a GOLD medal with honour – this is THE place to stay at! Benny Norling, Sweden Solneige
A wonderful place in many senses with the best ho
There aren’t words to describe the hosts Pieter and Therese’s dedication to their guests. Our stay was simply perfect thanks to all the help these wonderful hosts provided us with. We are a family with four kids and we spent the best time at Chalet Solneige. We had the chance to enjoy really lovely skiing days, relaxing nights at the jacuzzi and also a lovely Christmas dinner at the Chalet. The location is great and we had an astonishing view from our balcony. The bus that takes you to Vaujany stops just outside and it takes only about 10 min to get to the ski lifts. We will definitely remember our week at Chalet Solneige for the rest of our lives as one of the best ever. Bianca B, Stockholm Solneige
20/10! Fandabulous chalet.
We have just spent the most wonderful week with Therese and Pieter in Chalet Solneige. Our party consisted of 3 families and even though Therese had to add extra beds in rooms to accommodate us all, there was still masses of space. Therese and Pieter are the BEST hosts. The chalet has such a relaxed feel to it and you are made to feel totally at home thanks to their warm and relaxed manner. Meals for both adults and children were perfect. Delicious home cooked courses every evening and we especially enjoyed Pieter’s cheese anecdotes and stories! Wonderful hot tub, sauna and delicious cake and tea after each days skiing. Brilliant location (car necessary) between Vaujany (5 mins) and Oz (15 mins) ski stations so depending on wind conditions we drove (and parked easily) to the appropriate station each day. I really can’t fault this brilliant chalet. Amazing value for money. Book Chlaet Solneige – you won’t be disappointed! Thank you both so much for a really brilliant holiday. Xx Anna and Ben Solneige
