The Rhone/French Alps region
Villard Reculas is in Isere, in the Rhone-Alpes region. The nearest city is Grenoble but airports in Lyon, Chambery and even Geneva are within an easy drive.
Whilst renowned for winter sports, the region has worked hard to develop activities for the year round e.g. Mountain and downhill biking (VVT in France) as well as road cycling for which it is also famous - Alpe d’Huez has one of the best known climbs in the Tour de France.
Linked in to the vast Alpe d’Huez ski area, Villard Reculas remains a small, authentic but modern, alpine village. It offers the perfect base, in both summer and winter, for those who, after an active day, want to relax in beautiful, peaceful surroundings.
The Grandes Rousses ski area has almost 250km of pisted skiing and extensive off-piste areas. In addition to Villard Reculas and Alpe d’Huez, the area also includes Huez, Auris-en-Oisans, Oz-en-Oisans and Vaujany.The resort also offers 50km of cross country trails.
For those that find that even this isn’t sufficient, the resort of Les Deux Alpes is 35km away. It can also be accessed by helicopter at Alpe d’Huez altiport. A 6 day Visialp pass includes upto 2 days in Les Deux Alpes. Or for those who want more of an off-piste thrill, La Grave is 40km away.
The area offers superb off-road biking, there are 250km of runs between the villages, 14 (121km) downhill and 11 (112km) cross country marked trails of varying difficulty.
For those who favour cycling on the road, the area offers not only the famous Alpe d’Huez climb but also others such as the Col de la Croix de Fer and the Col du Galibier.
Situated as it is, in the heart of the Ecrins National Park, there are a great variety of walks and hikes for those who prefer legs to wheels.
