Vallandy is a small, cosy French village consisting of a number of authentic houses, farms, Savoyard-style apartment buildings and chalets. In the centre of the village there is an assortment of shops, restaurants, bars and a nightclub.
The village of Vallandry is located at an altitude of 1600m in the centre of the vast ski area of Paradiski. It is located in the same area as Les Arcs which has over 117km of ski slopes. The resort of La Plagne is also accessible via a ski lift. Due to its central location in such a large resort, Vallandry is a perfect ski holiday spot for both beginner and advanced skiers and snowboarders.
Sunweb has a great collection of different accommodations in Vallandry. From cheap apartments, to large luxurious chalets there are ski packages to suit all budgets and group sizes.
The villages of Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry together form a ski resort which is part of the great Paradiski area. Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry has a total of 106 pistes in a 200km area.
The side of Les Arcs is know for being quite busy with a lot going on, however the side of Peisey-Vallandry is know for being more peaceful and quiet for skiers/snowboarders. Usually there are little to no queues for the ski lifts in this area. For beginners the lower part of Arc 1600 and 1800 are great areas to practice and learn the basics. For the more advanced skiers the Aiguille Rouge slope on the mountain of the same name is a must do. It is perhaps the most difficult slope within the whole of the Paradiski area. As most of the slopes in the area are above 1800m, it is very snow sure.
In the heart of Les Arcs 1800, the snowpark Mille8 has opened its doors. The snowpark is nestled in a beautiful area in the Paradiski ski area. At the park you will find an exciting toboggan run, forest theme trail and a freestyle trail with various obstacles.
New for 2019/20
A new Folie Douce will open with 3 restaurants on the slopes. Enjoy the delicious food, unique shows, fine drinks and good après ski. Every day from 13.30 - 14.30 you can watch a cabaret show. After this it is time for a party and the best music is played by various famous DJs. Foil Douce is open until 19:00 and on Thursdays even longer.
