Gateway to Paradiski Karen Anderson, Ski Specialist

"In my opinion Vallandry must have one of the most perfect locations in the Alps, it truly has doorstep skiing! Intermediates are extremely well catered for here with a huge variety of runs from smooth cruising blues to challenging reds. The trees above Vallandry are great fun especially when it's chucking it down with snow and you can't see your way around the pistes."

Peisey-Vallandry Ski Holidays

With some of the best skiing in the Les Arcs area, the valley of Peisey-Vallandry also provides excellent access to the Paradiski link to La Plagne via the Vanoise Express cable car. Overlooking the Tarentaise valley at the foot of the pistes, the pretty resort of Vallandry benefits from long hours of sunshine and a superb landscape. 

Peisey-Vallandry is a quieter alternative to the larger nearby Les Arcs resort bases but there's easy access to the same great ski area and still lots of good bars, restaurants and activities in and around the village bases. 

There's also a great choice of excellent value four star luxury apartments in great locations offering superb amentities including access to swimming pools. They're the perfect choice for a great family ski holiday.

Skiing in Peisey-Vallandry

Peisey-Vallandry is the perfect base for anyone wanting to make the most of the vast Paradiski ski area which runs from La Plagne to Les Arcs, connected by the Vanoise Express. Beginners will enjoy the wide choice of gentle and spacious tree-lined pistes running down to the resort and there is an excellent British run ski school called New Generation, based in the resort which our dedicated reservation team can help organise for you.

For the intermediate skier, there are plenty of long cruisy blue runs and more confident skiers will find challenging reds and blacks as well as excellent off piste to explore.
