The village centre is both traditional and compact, with many of the accommodations nearby to the shops. With simple accessibility and plenty of facilities, it makes for a wonderful family resort.

Club Hotel Rois Mages is a fantastic budget option for a ski holiday in France. The hotel is located just opposite the slopes for fast access to the amazing ski area first thing in the morning. Chalet Genepy and Chalet Rocher de l’Aigle are chalets located just outside of the main area and are a brilliant option for groups of 13-15 looking for a sole occupancy chalet.

While many of the runs are properly manicured to ensure the smoothest possible surface, there is a great learning curve here to ensure people can develop their skills by trying routes of different difficulties.
