Tour de France 2023

Unfortunately it is not our turn this year – The nearest stages are 18 Moûtiers and 17 Courchevel

Hopefully Alpe d’Huez climb and Boug d’Oisans Stages will be back in 2024.  If you want to get close to the action you really need to book at least year in advance.

Maison Cluaran is 15 minutes drive from the final Alpe D’Huez section of Le Tour and the start of stage le Bourg D’Oisans. There are many places near by for spectators to have an excellent view of the race.  You can stay close to us in Venosc where you could choose the world famous Alpe d’Huez climb or the flat section passing le Bourd’Oisans.  A little further out, there is a fast decent to Allemond for example.

Feeling more adventurous? You could drive out into the valleys and spend the day in surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery and beautiful villages before and after taking in the race.  There are many quieter viewing options to choose from.

After all the excitement, you can relax and soak up the atmospheres in Venosc, Alpe d’Huez or le Bour d’Oisans.  It is likely to be super busy!
