General information

Val Cenis consists of two lovely villages: Lanslebourg, which features a long street with a few hotels and Lanslevillard, a great village with excellent restaurants, a few lively bars, a nightclub and an ice skating rink. For relaxation you can make use of the swimming pool, sauna, public thermal bath and adrenaline seekers can sign up for paragliding.

Val Cenis is beautifully located in between the National Park of Vanoise and the regional park of Avigliana in Italy. The place is easily accessible, has a steady snow record and when the conditions are right you can even ski right down to your apartment doorstep.

For children there are two sleigh pistes and there are weekly torch tours through the area. There are two fun parks with a half pipe and various jumps for snowboarders as well as a few off piste descents for experienced skiers and snowboarders. Val Cenis is a great resort for hikers too. Here you will find approximately 29 kilometers of hiking trails and you can join snow boot hiking tours organised in the village as well.
