Visitor Reviews of Villard-Reculas
Chris Gill from France writes:
A tour of downtown Villard Reculas by Chris Gill editor of Where to Ski and snowboard. 23 January 2013
Wednesday brought cloud and snow to the Alpe d’Huez area, creating the perfect opportunity to explore the minute satellite village of Villard-Reculas in the company of Michael Baldwin, year-round resident and owner-operator of La Source, a 200-year-old stone barn converted into a charming catered chalet.
In the course of touring the densely built village, in the middle of the day, we encountered one pedestrian, three cats and one moving vehicle. If you’re looking for a ski resort that is nothing like a typical ski resort, this place is for you.
The forecast for Thursday is better, and we have the slopes of another satellite, Auris, on the agenda.
