l'Alpe-d'Huez is a popular resort in the centre of the Oisans; a region in the French Alps. The town is split into four 'quartiers', including Quartier des Vieil Alpe. This is the oldest part of the town, with many original buildings, charming back streets and family run restaurants. Quartier des Jeux, on the other hand, has more modern bars, shops and popular apres-ski activities. The original town of Huez is nearby, overlooking the Sarenne Gorge. This old village has a plethora of tiny alleyways, as well as shops and restaurants, and the Roman church of St. Anne. Skiers flock to l'Alpe-d'Huez for the year round sunshine and excellent skiing. The Sarennes run, named after the gorge, is Europe's longest at 16 km. At the highest point of the ski area, Pic Blanc, there are incredible views of much of France, including neighbouring Mont Blanc. Visitors come l'Alpe-d'Huez during the summer months, too, to walk, climb, raft, horse ride and mountain bike.
