Can anyone provide guidance on the best places to stay and eat, also the best way to get there? plane, train or automobile? and vice versa -places to avoid?

thanks

In reply to jjstonham: i flew easyjet to lyon last time i was there and stayed at bourg d'oisans at the bottom of the mountain lovely little town. not sure on transport as we hired a car though from the airport which could come in handy as les 2 alpes and la grave are only a short drive away

Hotel Chamois is central, not too expenseive, friendly, has good food but can be a bit noisy once a week when they have a party in the bar below.

Vaujany is a really nice place to stay that links into the area, and if you go by car La Grave opens up if that floats your boat.

In reply to jjstonham: I've stayed in Vaujany a couple of times and have really rated it. It links in to the Alpe D'Huez resort by a cable car.
Not much going on in the evening but if you just like beers in a bar its great. It also has a couple of restaurants and all the usual necessaries.

In reply to jjstonham: If you can't get cheap flights to Grenoble but can to Lyon then you can always jump on the Satobus (you'll need to google it since the link won't work on here for some reason) which definitely does to Bourg d'Oisans and may go as far as ADH. Even if it doesn't then you can jump on a local bus for the last leg.
