The Rhone/French Alps region
Vaujany is a traditional mountain village perched on the edge of the mountainside. It has retained its traditional character whilst developing into a fantastic ski resort and bustling summer retreat.
Vaujany itself benefits from a small town centre with a well stocked supermarket, bars and restaurants. There are two excellent museums, swimming pool, skating rink, bowling alley and a children's play area.
Chalet La Fraise is located 150M from the main lift station and just above the leisure centre. All of the village facilties are within easy access which includes riding on the cleverly hidden escalators!
The Vaujany ski area is an integral part of an enormous domain covering 8 ski resorts: Alpe D'Huez, Auris, Clavans, Le Freney d'Oisans, La Garde, Oz en Oisans, Villard Reculas and Vaujany.
The 160 place Cable Car takes you from the village at 1250m to 2800m in minutes. A further cable car takes you to Pic Blanc at 3,300m. From here there are panoramic views of Mont Blanc, the Grand Paradis, the Meije and the Ecrin National Park.
Ski-ing down offers a choice of 220 km of managed slopes of huge variety and for all skill levels, including four vertical descents of 2000m each. Your options are virtually unlimited.
Alternatively take the Gondola to Montfrais, a sunny spot for lunch and where the ski school's Jardin de Neige is located.

Take the cable car and enjoy miles and miles of stunning mountain walks, spectacular mountain biking, go climbing, play tennis, try your hand at archery, white water rafting, lazy river canoeing.... and of course the area is famous for its road cycling.
Indeed, many say that there is more to do in summer than there is in winter! We agree!
