Located in the heart of the Paradiski skiing area, the sunny ski resort of Peisey-Vallandry is actually made up of five traditional mountain villages: Landry (altitude of 800 m), Peisey (altitude of 1350 m), Nancroix (altitude of 1400 m), Vallandry (altitude of 1600 m) and Plan-Peisey (altitude of 1650 m). The area has a cosy village atmosphere since it is inhabited all year round, unlike many other ski resorts. This is not the place to be for a lively après ski scene, but you will find a variety of intimate bars, restaurants and shops to choose from in the villages. Nighttime torch-lit tours are also organised in Peisey. Experience a typical mountain village atmosphere while staying in a comfortable traditional style ski chalet in the picturesque village of Peisey!
