“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!
A wonderful appartment for all times of the year, we have been in both summer and winter. Very close to the ski lifts with access to a huge area for skiing. Lots to do in the summer -tennis, walking , cycling, climbing and relaxing. A lovely outdoor pool a short drive away.
The appartment is very practical and well-equipped, ideal for both familes and groups of adults. The balcony has beautiful views! …

Super apartment for perfect ski holiday
The apartment is super equipped, well decorated, very comfortable with lots of day light (corner apartment). Everything is well organised by the owner. The balcony has a very nice vue on the resort. We were 4 adults and 3 children. Overall we had a great holiday. It is located very centrally. You have all shops, bars and restaurants around 50m. The third room with the two single beds is suitable for children, but might be a little small for adults. Mark, the owner, is very helpful and very responsive. I would definitely recommend. …
