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 Residence Les Bergers which at 100m is the closest residence to the ski lifts, Christiana Residence Apartments Quartier des Bergers Apartments and Les Melezes Apartments.

Quartier des Jeux

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.

Quartier Cognet

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 the Hotel Hermitage and Chalet Hotel Les BruyeresCrystalski.
