Oz en Oisans
The resort of Oz-en-Oisans is set amidst fir trees just above the pretty old village of Oz itself. Oz is easily accessed from Grenoble (55km) by the main trunk road - around 45 minutes’ driving time.
It was one of the last resorts to be built in the Alps (1989), and although purpose-built, it has a traditional village atmosphere with attractive new chalets and apartment blocks built predominantly of wood and stone.
Located between the Belledonne and Grandes Rousses mountain ranges, Oz-en-Oisans is made up of 10 hamlets plus the resort of Oz Station itself, reaching altitudes of between 800m and 1350m. The hamlets, Oz Village, le Roberand, le Bessey, Sardonne, l’Ile d’Oz, le Boulangeard, le Pontonnier, la Beurrière, la Voûte, le Pré de l’Arche and l'Enversin are so widely scattered they make Oz one of the largest municipalities in the Oisans.
Well designed and traffic free (there is extensive underground parking), Oz-en-Oisans is safe for children and much quieter than the bustling nearby resort complex of Alpe d’Huez.
The ski school, nursery slopes, main gondola lift, bars, restaurants, sports shops, supermarket, nursery and ice rink are all within a short walking distance of each other in Oz-en-Oisans ski resort. This makes Oz-en-Oisans the ideal resort for a hassle-free family holiday.
