Peisey Vallandry ski resort is an ideal location for skiers and snowboarders wishing to enjoy a peaceful resort in Les Arcs but at the same time being in the heart of the Paradiski, enjoying unrivalled access to the Vanoise Express and the La Plagne ski area. There has been some expansion of the village in recent years however the building projects have been in keeping with the traditional architecture of the village and the new accommodation is of a high standard, keeping the traditional resort small and family friendly.
Plagne Villages is very close to Plagne Soleil by road and on skis, so much so that there is often no distinction between them. Plagne Villages also enjoys great access to the skiing and has all its own facilities including an ESF ski school and ski hire shop, and is linked to Plagne Centre by a pedestrian lift.
Plagne Soleil ski resort is one of the newer villages in La Grande Plagne. It offers great ski in/ski out access wherever you stay and the village is approximately 10 minutes' walk from Plagne Villages, where you can then take the pedstrian lift to Plagne Centre.
One of the more modern and attractive of the high altitude villages, Belle Plagne ski resort offers a traditional Savoyard atmosphere whilst still providing a wide selection of amenities, bars, restaurants and non-skiing activities.

Ski-in, ski-out convenience from all the accommodation A range of facilities within a few steps of your apartment Picturesque pedestrian village with Alpine charm
Arc 1950 ski resort is one of four purpose-built villages in the world-famous Les Arcs ski area. Originally built by the Canadian developer behind many North American resorts including Whistler, Copper Mountain and Winter Park, Arc 1950 broke the mould for European resorts by creating a picturesque, family-friendly village that also offers snow-sure skiing and ski-in/ski-out convenience. This combination of character and convenience has proved to be a winning formula, making Arc 1950 one of the most popular ski holiday destinations in the French Alps.
Arc 1950 Le Village is located just below Arc 2000 (linked by a pedestrian lift) and boasts fantastic views of Mont Blanc. The car-free village and range of high-quality self-catering apartments make Arc 1950 ski holidays especially popular for families with children of all ages, as well as those looking for a relaxing ski holiday. Families and groups will appreciate all the facilities set within a compact, pedestrian village and easy access to the diverse mountain terrain which is suitable for everyone from beginners to powder hounds.
The high altitude of Arc 1950 ski resort means that during the winter season, good snow is pretty much guaranteed. The village is connected to the expansive Les Arcs ski area by a modern and efficient lift system – the Marmottes lift is just below the village and links to the Varet gondola for easy access to high-altitude skiing. Arc 1950 boasts a great setting in which families, couples and individual skiers alike can enjoy beautiful views, outstanding skiing and a variety of entertainment options. Despite being a small village, all services and facilities needed are on your doorstep – there are a vast amount of activities, both on and off the slopes, to choose from.
The skiing around Arc 1950 and Arc 2000 is ideal for all levels of skier and snowboarder. Beginners and nervous skiers will appreciate the wide open runs above Arc 2000, which are spacious and excellent for building confidence. Intermediates might wish to head over to Arc 1800 and Villaroger and advanced skiers will love the great connections to more challenging terrain on the Aiguille Rouge and Grand Col.
Arc 1800 is roughly divided into two areas; Le Charvet and Les Villards, it’s set beside a beautiful forest and it is at the heart of the popular Paradiski ski area ̶ which boasts 435 km of pristine pistes, three peaks at altitudes of over 3000m and runs for all abilities at elevations of between 1200 and 3250m.
With high-altitude skiing on your doorstep throughout a season that typically lasts from mid-December to mid/late April, accommodation to suit all tastes and requirements, and facilities for children as young as 18 months old, a ski holiday at Arc 2000 has much to recommend it. A popular choice for freeriders, it is also easy to get to the long, tree-lined run down to Villaroger and it’s brilliant if you love wide-open cruisey blues as well as more tricky pistes.
