Accommodation In
Bourg d’Oisans  

Our self catered accommodation is a renovated old school house in the small hamlet of La Paute, just outside of Bourg d’Oisans. We’ve kept the name that everyone knows it as locally - L’Ecole de La Paute.

The building has been converted into two apartments.  The ground floor apartment (89m2) is suitable for up to a maximum of 6 people (one bedroom with two beds / one double, and a mezzanine split in half with two beds on each side).  

The larger apartment is across the next two floors (136m2) and can sleep up to 10 maximum, across three large bedrooms.  All our bedrooms include single beds that can be zipped together to make a king size double.

La Paute

Cycling Ascents provides guided cycling, accommodation, and training camps at the foot of Alpe d'Huez, based in Bourg d’Oisans

As you would expect, cyclists are catered for with a secure cellar to house your bikes, including common tools, bike stand & track pump for any adjustments or repairs that might have to be made.

The building is situated at the base of the Col d’Ornon, just 2km from Bourg d’Oisans so all of the bike routes that you can enjoy from our B&B are just as accessible from here too.

If you are keen to meet other cyclists you’ll be welcome to come over to our B&B on the other side of town!

The ground floor apartment is where the old school had it’s classrooms - we have kept the five 2.5m high windows and 4m high ceilings to give an open, light feel.

The newly constructed mezzanine floor across the back wall adds space and creates a large area for sleeping (divided into 2 halves and with curtains for privacy from the living area below).  The bedroom under the mezzanine has it’s own ensuite bathroom, while off the lounge and dining area are the kitchen and another bathroom.

All beds can either be kept in single format or zipped together to create a kingsize double bed.
