Mountain Villages of Oisans

For those Chalet Le Sabot guests who love the authenticity and tradition of mountain life, the charming villages of Oisans take you on a journey of discovery. As you wander along the old paths you will see old stone buildings, quirky roofs, cobbled side-streets and typical mountain architecture.


Chalet Le Sabot guests appreciate the good things in life, a fine wine being one of them. Visit the neighbouring Rhone-Alpes with it’s many vineyards and wineries, a great day out and we’re sure you’ll return to the chalet stocked up for some quality tasting!

Beauty Therapy

Holidays offer the perfect opportunity to have a bit of well deserved 'me time'.

There are both hair and beauty salons in the nearby Alpe d'Huez, Bourg d'Oisans or slightly further afield in Grenoble. There are lovely spas in offering massage, beauty treatments, bronzing and hair dressers amongst other indulgences.


There are a number of museums in the Oisans for an educational day out.

Perhaps the ideal 'wet weather' solution or an opportunity to show children the history of different cultures, inform of nature and ecosystems in the mountains or simply to make a pleasant day out. A few examples:

The Mountain Museum
The Museum of Mountaineering Memories
Museum of Minerals and Alpine Wildlife
The Pasture Museum
