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.
