The large resort of Alpe d'Huez, roughly triangular in shape, is situated on a gently sloping sunny plateau at 1860m.
Accommodation is located in a series of "quarters" of which the main three are Quartier des Bergers to the east,
Quartier des Jeux in the centre and Quartier des Vieil Alpe to the west.
Quartier des Bergers
Quartier des Bergers is the newest addition to the resort at the eastern end and about 10 minutes walk from the centre.
There is a small arcade of shops which consists largely of sports outlets in addition to a supermarket.
Although there are a smattering of restaurants and bars, most visitors head to the centre of the resort for entertainment.
Accommodation is mainly self catering and includes the
Pierre & Vacances Les Bergers Apartments
which at 100m is the closest residence to the ski lifts,
Christiana Residence Apartments,
Les Bergers Belambra Apartments
Les Melezes Apartments.
Quartier des Jeux
Quartier des Jeux is the centre of Alpe d'Huez 1860 and contains by far the biggest concentration of shops,
restaurants and bars in the resort. This is the place to be for apres-ski and caters well for those with the
energy to party into the small hours.
Residence L'Ours Blanc,
Hotel Royal Ours Blanc
are popular choices for accommodation.
Quartier des Vieil Alpe
Quartier des Vieil Alpe is the oldest district in the resort and this
charming area is quiet and largely residential.
It contains a selection of restaurants and has its own lift.
Hotel Petit Prince
is newly refurbished and offers full board accommodation.
Cognet is one of the smaller quarters and is situated to the north of the centre along the Route du Signal.
It's a popular place to stay as this position makes it ideal for both the lifts and the
main cluster of bars and restaurants in Quartier des Jeux.
Choices for accommodation include
and Chalet Hotel Les Bruyeres.
