If you choose the ‘Manor’ package deal for your holiday with friends, you can expect a cosy rental with high quality services, in a remote hamlet so you’re guaranteed peace-and-quiet and to not bother the neighbours… You’ll feel like you’ve travelled to the ends of the earth, surrounded by the magical snow-covered landscapes, with the luxury of being able to change ski resorts every day. You’ll find all the services you need at the end of the road, outdoor activities just a short distance away, and you can come back to the peace-and-quiet of your manor house in the evenings. Taking the time to spend some quality time with your friends is important.
Your accommodation, ‘the beryl manor house’, a 4-star apartment
A spacious rental that has been tastefully deocrated in a ‘modern-chic’ style, while the 18th century spirit of the place adds a touch of serenity. According to Isabelle, the owner, “Here, the real luxury is the space”. When you go away with friends, you need to respect each other’s privacy and have a comfortable place to come back to after a day out in the great outdoors. The spacious living area is bright and overlooks the wild natural environment and superb peaks. Then of course there is the sauna!
Contact & reservation
Beryl manor house
Let the horse guide the way and just hold on tight, the wind on your cheeks, skis on your feet and a smile on your face… This is an exceptional mountain experience thanks to the closeness you’ll feel with your horse, this motor that runs on hay, and provides you with so much more than just pulling you along the snow. As soon as you grab hold of the harness, you’ll be whisked back to your childhood, as the animal pulls you along at an easy-going pace, suitable even for beginners. The whole area suddenly takes on a Swedish appearance and you already know you’re in the the ride of your life…
Escapade through the snow
This is the perfect activity to get some fresh air and have a good laugh! You’ll be walking through the subdued snowy atmosphere of the alder tree forest at the Col d’Ornon. Experience the ultimate feeling of serenity on one of the 7 waymarked trails winding through the forest. The sun peeps through the bare trees and when you get to a vast snow-covered meadow, why not race each other and end up in a fit of laughter? A snowshoeing outing is always a good idea!
Eurasian Steppes in the middle of Oisans
There are only around thirty bison farms in France, and one of them just happens to be in Bourg-d’Oisans! So come with Didier, a passionate and fascinating farmer, and see what he does every day with these animals. At his farm, you’ll see a herd of around twenty bisons, as well as 240 sheep, their lambs, cats, dogs, horses and… llamas! Throughout the tour, he will be delighted to share his passion for bisons with you, as you cross his estate on a ‘farming carriage’ as he calls it… You’ll learn a lot on this outing with a touch of humour.
yoga in snow-covered scenery
Have you ever experienced the feeling of serenity you get from the snow, the muffled sounds and invigorating dry cold? Add to that the revitalising yoga poses and connection with the natural elements around the Lac Bleu in Bourg-d’Oisans… Equipped with a yoga mat that is adapted for the snow, Florence will guide you through a Viniyoga session where the warmth of the body will cancel out the cold of winter. Meditation in movement then boosts your vitality and creativity, and why not combine this with an artistic workshop?
Toboggan run vs tubing. crazy mountain fun!
Unforgettable memories guaranteed if you choose to go tubing on the snow or on the toboggan run! In Alpe d’Huez, we love thrilling activities and we love groups of friends too. Sliding down the snow is so much fun and on an inflatable ring, even more so. Slide down as a duo, tied together as a group, or go head-to-head in a race: ready, steady, go! As for the tobbogan run, as a duo you’ll be hurtling round the bends, over the bumps, obstacles and jumps in hysterical laughter and complete safety!
