"Wonderful apartment, great in summer too"
We stayed here in July and had a fantastic time. The apartment is excellent - furnished to a very high standard, more spacious than we had imagined, and very well located for lifts, restaurants, the shop and boulangerie. Oz is a very good base for a summer holiday, with excellent walking and cycling on your doorstep. WIth no traffic in the village itself it is very quiet and friendly, and ideal for children. Would thoroughly recommend for a summer holiday and as skiiers ourselves can see it is also perfect for a winter break.

"Perfect place to stay for a family holiday in beautiful Oz"
We couldn't have been happier with Les Myrtilles as a base for our first skiing holiday with our three young children and their granny. It is a very pleasant and spacious apartment with a fantastic south-facing balcony for relaxed sunny lunches at home. Situated right in the centre of the Village, you couldn't ask for a better location for the ski lifts, supermarket or ski school.
The apartment is so well equipped, there was no need that wasn't met. The owner Mark has been accommodating and helpful to us in every way, before, during and since our stay. The best way I can describe how happy we were with this holiday is to tell you that we booked again for next year as soon as we got back. Thank you Mark.

I admit, we were incredibly lucky with the freak end-of-season snow, plenty of sun and few people. But this tiny resort (Oz en Oisant) is a gem for families with learners, with adults who are keen to rest up rather than rave out.
The apartment is well appointed with a good sized balcony (one of three), soft seating, kitchen and bathroom (with very soothing bubbles!).
The apartment is ridiculously easy to get to and we skied back to the door every day with ski school bang next door. The lifts really are five minutes walk up the hill on one side and a short ski on the other. And once you're up the mountain you have a vast ski area to explore.
The owners made sure we were thoroughly briefed on all things Oz and we found them utterly determined we would have a great holiday, which we did.

"Stunning location, suberb accomodation, highly recommended"
From making enquiries about this property the help, advice and support was exemplary. The owner, Mark, found out about all sorts for us in advance, Nikki, who manages the propery is wonderful, nothing… More

"This apartment gave you a feel good factor and the fab skiing was a bonus!"
This apartment is one to know about. It is in a brilliant position being adjacent to the ski school and a stone's throw from the lifts to the bigger ski area of Alpe d'Huez. So all that hassle of carrying skis any distance is taken away. In fact we (2 adults and 4 children) were very lucky as we could ski directly from the slopes to the flat's ski locker as the snow was so good. This I'm told is quite unusual.
The apartment is fitted out brilliantly and we really enjoyed the extensive DVD collection in the evenings. During the day due to its convenient position we were able to come back for lunch and sit watching the world in glorious sunshine from the main balcony over looking Oz en Oisan.
You can get to the patisserie next door in your slippers in the morning and in the evening we had take out pizzas from the restaurant downstairs. All perfect luxury - we have already booked for next year!

"Perfect location for ski school!"
What an amazing holiday Les Myrtilles was for me, my husband and our 2 kids aged 9 & 5. We usually stay in hotels in Austria that are close to ski school to make those busy mornings easier. But we couldn't get any closer this year! The ski locker room was outside the ESF office, with just a 5 metre ski down to the meeting point. Then for us it was a ski down to the alpe d'huez gondola, or a 5 min walk up to the Vaujany gondola ( nice big green practice run up there that's very quiet) with a great red all the way back down to the back of the apartment. The skiing here is fantastic, loads of choice, all get you back to the apartment. We also spent ages sledging in the special area on the nursery slopes, or outside one of the bars near the gondola. Kids were in heaven!
The flight to Grenoble and taxi transfer was without a hitch, the transfer was 320 euros return, a lot but it was just the 4 of us. Getting into the pedestrian only village in a lift was different, but again very close to the apartment. Wheelie bags for us next time though.....
The apartment is brilliantly located. Well stocked with kitchen equipment (loads of crockery and cutlery). There are some condiments, which made cooking easy. There is a good, small supermarket, a lovely patisserie (gorgeous baguettes and tarts). We did have takeaway pizza twice, but mostly i cooked pasta and we stayed in watching movies from the extensive library, and a few kids ones we brought too. There was plenty of space for all our clothes, bags, snow boots, coats, salopettes etc. big dining table next to the huge window/balcony overlooking the village. The kids started the week in separate rooms, then went in together (after watching Jurassic park.....). Great upstairs rooms, yes they have sloped ceilings but they are just for sleeping, and the kids thought they were great! We also spent most nights in the whirlpool bath, which I particularly loved. There was loads of very hot water, and the apartment was nice and warm too when you got out.
The village at night was very quiet, but I think we chose a quiet week, and it meant the slopes were perfect! One thing I did miss, the Austrian food and drink. But would I stay in this apartment again? Absolutely I would. It was like a home from home and the owners communication/information has been helpful and timely throughout. We would wholeheartedly recommend Les Myrtilles and the village of Oz en Oisans to all families with children or groups who don't want/need nightlife. Brilliant!

Our family stayed in the apartment during the Christmas week of 2012. The apartment and Oz village are superb. The apartment is on top floor (3rd) and offers a beautiful view, ski in and out facility and has sizeable ski lockers in basement. The amenities of the village do not necessitate using your car for grocery shopping or visiting restaurants. Our son enjoyed the father Christmas (with his support staff...) and (real) deer coming to visit on Christmas day. Village is very family orientated and there is easy access to the Alp d'Huez ski resort via one gondola. Also, the mini ski area (passed the ski lift) includes a magic carpet ski lift and mini slope which helped a lot to teach our little one to ski. The mini ski area requires NO ski pass.
