WHY CHALET LES VIGNEAUX & PUY ST VINCENT?
Puy St Vincent is virtually unknown to the British skier, even through the English Alpine Championships are often held here. We think they are trying to keep it a secret! Its smaller size means uncrowded pistes, no queues, parking right by the pistes (which our visitors frequently report is much easier than being in resort and having to walk even 100m with skis!) and with lift pass prices half that of the large resorts, offers great value for money with no compromise on the quality of skiing, in addition to having an envied snow record and unrivaled provincial sunshine! Puy St Vincent is great place to learn, and has built a reputation as one of the best family resorts around, but also offers some of the most challenging black runs and off piste, in addition to long tree-lined sweeping greens and blues, and a large variety of challenging reds, that see visitors return year after year. A six day ski pass here unbelievably also gives you a free days skiing in 7 other nearby resorts including the vast Serre Chevalier, Montgenèvre, Claviere, Sestriere & Sauze d'Oulx in the Italian Milky Way, Pelvoux, La Grave, Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes!
Chalet les Vigneaux is perfectly located whether you are looking for a family holiday in a quiet resort, or a full on ski tour of the biggest and best French resorts.
*NEWS! - Serre Chevalier has been voted the best value ski resort for km's of piste, and Puy St Vincent, the best value resort overall in France by Le Figaro!*
