Venue – Lauvitel Lodge, French Alps

Lauvitel Lodge - French Alps

Lauvitel Lodge is a mountain getaway in the heart of the French Alps – the Oisans valley – famous for cycling and skiing. Providing perfect space for family gatherings and holidays with friends,  it is also a place for well-being retreats, self-development workshops and corporate team events.

The ultimate idea behind the Lodge is for it to be a “home from home”, where people come back to reconnect with Nature, themselves and others.


Lauvitel Lodge is located in a small hamlet of La Danchere, about one-hour drive from Grenoble. Situated at the end of the road, it marks the gateway to the Ecrins National Park, and much much more.

This exceptional landscape makes it a perfect place for reconnecting with yourself and your loved ones, or simply taking a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

The closest airports to La Danchere are Grenoble, Lyon, Chambery, Geneva and Turin. If you need any assistance in planning your travel to the Lodge, you can get full details of the location here.


Lauvitel Lodge’s mission is to enable guests to experience the tranquillity of nature while they stay at the Lodge – and then to take this experience back home with them. They are very happy to see the community of nature-lovers growing around Lauvitel Lodge every year. To nurture this community, they have transformed Lauvitel Lodge from a mountain refuge it once was into comfortable lodging for sole travellers, couples, families, groups of friends and for hosting events.

Caroline and her team provide a welcoming place to stay, no matter whether you want to come for two nights or two weeks. One of many distinctive qualities of Lauvitel Lodge is that it brings together people from different countries, social backgrounds and of various ages, granting them an opportunity to meet each other.
