Peisey-Vallandry is the most authentic mountain holiday destination in the Paradiski ski area. You will find the peace and serenity that is appreciated after a long day of walking or skiing.
Less well known than its neighbours Les Arcs and La Plagne, Peisey-Vallandry offers visitors an insight into Savoyard customs and traditions, naturalness and authenticity that appeal not only to skiers and hikers.
As part of the internationally renowned Paradiski ski are, Peisey-Vallandry may seem a little overshadowed by the two-star destinations of Les Arcs and La Plagne. It is precisely because it seems less flashy that it is the ideal resort and very popular with families and children, more generally, visitors looking for peace once they have taken off their skis.
Staying in Peisey-Vallandry is like going back to your roots. The resort comprises many hamlets and villages of character surrounded by mountain landscapes that have nothing to envy the great Canadian spaces. The old alpine houses and renovated wooden chalets are sure to charm you.
Cross-country skiing and nature outings enthusiasts will naturally be more attracted to the villages of Landry (800 metres above sea level), Villaret (1300 metres), Peisey and Nancroix (1350 and 1400 metres above sea level). Those keen on downhill skiing, new forms of snow sports and lively evenings will more likely opt for the villages situated at an altitude of 1650 metres, namely Plan-Peisey and Vallandry. From there, they can take the spectacular Vanoise Express cable car and lifts to the heart of the Paradiski ski area, where everything happens in the heart of winter.
A summer tourist and holiday destination even before it became a recognised winter sports resort, Peisey-Vallandry is, in fact, a collection of villages that are great to visit in all four seasons.
If coming to ski in Peisey-Vallandry seems natural today, this should not make us forget all the other assets of this destination in the map which are revealed as the seasons go by and have contributed to its reputation for many years. The presence of the Vanoise National Park encourages the practice of outdoor activities in contact with the local fauna and flora. Hiking, rafting, climbing, mountain biking, canyoning, golf and trail running are all practised with the same enthusiasm from spring to autumn. Just as rich, the cultural heritage is on display during themed visits: baroque art, arts and crafts, traditional costumes and gourmet discoveries will satisfy all appetites for discovery.
As you can see, the villages that makeup Peisey-Vallandry are full of places of interest. Here we have the sense of welcome and the desire to share what makes the real wealth of the place: its natural and cultural heritage. Therefore, it is no coincidence that the resort is regularly distinguished for the great quality of its tourist infrastructure and ski area. It is being classified as a "Station Verte" (green resort), "Village Fleuri" (flowery village), "Station Village de Charme" (charming village resort), "Station Grand Domaine" (large area resort) or "Nordic site".
