Peisey Nancroix - a picturesque old village

The picturesque village of Peisey Nancroix can be found near the popular town of Bourg St Maurice in the heart of the Savoyard ski region. Ideally located for easy access from the UK, this little village, with its genuine Savoyard ambience and historic buildings provides a peaceful and pretty alternative to the large, bustling resorts, while still having access to some of the best skiing in the country.

Best of both worlds

A base in Peisey Nancroix provides a chance to experience a real slice of Savoyard life in a peaceful and beautiful setting whilst offering access to the fantastic skiing and social whirl of Les Arcs, just a very short distance away. Traditional and friendly, Peisey is an unspoiled farming village with some lovely features. The baroque church is a beautiful centrepiece to the village, and this is still the hub of the community.

Atmospheric and charming

A delightful way to savour the charm of Peisey Nancroix is to take a torchlight tour. Following the guide around the narrow, ancient streets, you can discover the origins and history of the village and enjoy its lovely original Savoyard architecture bathed in the soft glow of the torchlight, with fresh snow crunching underfoot. It's an experience to be savoured, and something you won't find in the large resorts with their tall apartments and hectic attitudes.

Shops and restaurants

Peisey Nancroix may not be the first choice for dedicated party animals, but the village does provide some good restaurants and friendly bars where you can enjoy a gentler type of après ski. If you are a party animal (or have some in your party!) though, don't despair, as Les Arcs is just up the road offering as much partying as you can handle! As for shopping, Peisey has plenty of shops and ski hire facilities, so you will lack for nothing.

And the skiing?

It goes without saying, the skiing is fantastic. With the top resorts of Les Arcs on the doorstep, Peisey offers access to some of the very best skiing in the Alps, both on and off piste. The high speed gondola will take you from Plan Peisey to the station at Les Arcs in no time, and bring you back again at the end of the day.
