Booked an entry only to Marmotte, any advice on finding accommodation? Have had a quick look at the usual suspects (expedia, booking etc) but nothing coming up (not surprisingly!).
Here you go:
Don't book accomm at Alpe d'Huez unless you wanna have to climb The Big One every day after a day's riding.
My hour on the plinth
last year we stayed at a good campsite in Rochetailee, near the turnoff towards the Glandon climb. We were tenting it but it also had static caravan affairs that looked okay.
This year I'm not sure where we're going to be but I'd advise staying in Bourg rather than Alp D'Huez myself, as Andy suggests.
Facts are meaningless, you can use facts to prove anything that's remotely true!
Few of us going together - any good/best way of getting there? Drive and ferry or train or plane?
Previous experience of the best way anyone??

Book at top of Alpe
It is great, you get to ride up the Alpe every day
