For buying and selling property in Peisey Vallandry

Peisey Vallandry - popular in summer and winter

The ski resort of Peisey Vallandry is found in the French Alps (Alps property), and has access to the Les Arcs (Les Arcs Property Guide)and La Plagne (La Plagne Property Guide) ski areas, thus offering extensive pistes and top of the range facilities for winter and summer sports.

A resort with great charm

The resort is a little unusual in that it is not just a purpose built resort, but rather a collection of purpose built but traditionally designed villages and also old, authentic Savoyard villages, and thus retains a great charm and true Alpine atmosphere which can be lacking in some of its neighbours. The older villages are year round homes to the villagers, so the population doesn't disappear at the end of each skiing season, and there is a wonderful heart to each community.

Plan Peisey and Vallandry - two of five main villages

There are five main villages which make up the Peisey Vallandry ski resort. They are all linked by shuttle buses, with some also linked by ski lifts and by pistes. The two highest villages both at 1600 metres, Plan Peisey and Vallandry, are also the most modern, purpose built but designed with care so as not to give the over developed impression of many resorts. These two are the most popular, and have direct access to the slopes both by piste and by chair lifts. They are also linked by road, and as they are near together it is possible to walk between the two.

Peisey, Nancroix and Landry - smaller and older and more traditional

A little lower down, with access to the slopes by shuttle bus to Plan Peisey and Vallandry, are the old Savoyard villages of Peisey, Nancroix and Landry. These smaller villages have been the homes of Alpine farmers and artisans for hundreds of years, and offer a charm and patrimony that more than makes up for their lack of direct access to the pistes. These older villages appeal to those who enjoy traditional Savoyard architecture, history and a calm environment.

Extensive skiing on offer

If it's all about the skiing, which is the main reason that people book holidays or buy property in ski resorts, then it doesn't really matter where you stay in Peisey Vallandry, as within a very short distance you will find that you have access to some of the best skiing in Europe. The whole of the Paradaski area is open to you, with the famous Les Arcs and La Plagne areas on the doorstep too.

Ski pistes in Peisey Vallandry

With 106 pistes, and access to a much larger skiing area, the resort caters for all ages and abilities, but is probably at its best for intermediate skiers, who will find a great choice of sweeping red and blue runs, some more challenging than others. The pistes on offer are nineteen black, thirty-two red, fifty-four blue and one green. Off piste is possible for experienced skiers. There are some nursery slopes, but it must be said that these are not the best, so true beginners may be better advised to travel to Les Arcs until they get their "snow legs" established.

Ski lifts and ski schools

The lift systems are pretty extensive, with fourteen lifts attributed to the resort. Two ski schools, New Generation (English-speaking) and ESF (mainly French-speaking) offer lessons that are tailored to specific ages and needs, privately or in groups, all season long.

Snowboarding is popular too!

Peisey Vallandry is also highly respected for its snowboarding facilities, and boarders can find good snowparks with additional access to the Les Arcs facilities.

Winter and summer alternative activities to skiing

If rushing headlong downhill isn't all you want to do on your skiing holiday, there are plenty of alternatives to be found in and around Peisey Vallandry. The resort offers some very good cross country pistes, with other winter sports including Nordic walking, snow shoeing, ice climbing, dog sledding, riding in horse drawn sleighs and paragliding. In summer, the options open to you are walking, mountain biking, mountaineering with an expert guide, pony trekking, rafting and canyoning and fishing (Fishing in France).

Explore the older villages of the area

Leaving aside the sports for a moment, as even the keenest skier or climber may wish to do, even if just for a few hours, the older villages of the group are a delight to explore. Farming is still the main activity of the inhabitants, and the local cheeses and other products are available straight from the producers. The old villages have some delightful buildings, with pretty churches and museums to help you discover the history and patrimony of the locality.

Enough shops to provide your daily needs

Although all the shops you will need to sustain you on your holiday are available between the villages of the resort, it isn't really the place if serious shopping is a priority. It isn't difficult to get to places like Les Arcs, which have so much more, but the shops in the villages of Peisey Vallandry are really just enough to provide your daily food and drink requirements, or for ski hire and other needs. Plan Peisey, perhaps predictably, has the most shops, with a useful mini market and a couple of farm shops selling local specialities to add to the mix.

Low key après ski

With regard to après ski, it is a similar story. This resort, especially the lower villages, is not really ideal for those who want to party all night after leaving the slopes. There are some good little bars and restaurants, but if you want nightclubs and discos you would be better advised to head for Les Arcs. The nightlife in Peisey Vallandry is low key, and suits those who are happy to settle down with a good meal or a glass of wine beside a big log fire and to exchange pleasant conversation with like minded people.

Take a tour of the area by helicopter

Out and about in skiing terms means access to the vast Paradaski area, and the possibilities are endless. However, if you want a change from skiing or are staying during the warmer months and fancy looking around the area to find interesting towns and villages or wonderful natural parks, then make sure you have a hire car and get ready to explore one of the most stunningly scenic areas of Europe. In summer, it is even possible to take a helicopter tour of the area, to really make the most of the views!

Visit Lake Annecy or play golf at Le Beauchet

The major town of Tignes (Tignes Property Guide) is near enough for a visit, as is Lake Annecy (Annecy Property Guide) and even Italy. Nearer to home, Montalbert has a children's farm, perfect for keeping the younger members of the family happy, or you can pop up to Les Arcs 1800 for a round of golf at Le Beauchet. For a peaceful day out in all the beauty of nature, the Vanoise National Park has a huge variety of flora and fauna to see in gorgeous surroundings.

How to get there

To travel by air, you can fly to Chambéry (Chambéry Property Guide), Grenoble (Grenoble Property Guide), Geneva or Lyon (Lyon Property Guide) with a variety of airlines direct from the UK, including British Airways, Air France, Ryanair, easyJet and Bmi. To travel by rail you can take Eurostar to Paris and change for Aime (Aime Property Guide), or choose one of the ski specials and arrive at Aime or Bourg St Maurice (Bourg Saint Maurice Property Guide) in one hit. Drivers will probably travel through the French auto route system through Reims (Reims Property Guide), Dijon (Dijon Property Guide) and Lyon, head for Chambéry and Moûtiers (Moûtiers Property Guide), and follow the N90 through Aime, after which Peisey Vallandry is signposted. The various villages of Peisey Vallandry are found along the D87 and D226.

Property prices and availability in Peisey Vallandry

All good ski resorts in the Alps tend to be expensive, simply due to the fact that they are desirable destinations. However, property can be found at reasonable prices if you are happy to keep a close eye on the market, and to act swiftly when a bargain appears. Peisey Vallandry property has the advantage of being attractively built, as opposed to offering only apartments in faceless concrete blocks, and can be a good prospect for the rental market.
