Although we do not offer direct airport transfers to Villard Reculas, we can take you most of the way from both Grenoble and Lyon Airports. Villard Reculas is connected by a piste to the Alpe d’Huez ski area. It is, however, accessed by a completely separate road which comes up from Rochetaillee, a small village close to Bourg d’Oisans. There is also a narrow road which connects Villard Reculas to Alpe d’Huez but it is closed when there is snow, so it’s always best to use our Rochetaillee stop. From Rochetaillee you will need to make your own travel arrangements for the short journey to Villard Reculas.
