Where to Ski: Vallandry, Les Arcs

France is a fantastic place to ski, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned expert. There are many reasons why skiers choose France from the level of ski instruction to the purpose-built resorts, top-notch accommodation options, non-skiing activities and an après atmosphere to suit all types of holiday makers.

But how do you pick from all the options? Essentially, what are the tell-tale signs of a great ski resort?

1. Reliable Snow

7. Village Charm

7. Village Charm

In your downtime, head to the charming Peisey village just down from the Vallandry ski resort area by following the alpine treeline which fringe the pistes.

Tradition and authenticity are well and truly alive here, from the architecture to the atmosphere (unlike other popular skiing resorts). In the heart of the village are two pub-restaurants which serve up delicious and local dishes. Other additions include a creche, supermarket, bakery, butcher’s shop, artist’s gallery, woodworking shop and cheese store. What more could you want?

It’s also a fantastic place to be during the festive season with family-friendly activities such as a Santa visit with his reindeers.
