About Puy Saint Vincent

The chalet is located between L'Argentière-la-Bessée and Les Vigneaux between the Durance and Gironde rivers, with easy access to the top rated family ski resort of Puy St Vincent, the famous skiing of Serre Chevalier with 250km of pistes, and extensive Ski du Fond tracks along the Vallouise valley.

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. Most skiers spend the whole week here, but Puy has another surprise. 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.

The small town of L'Argentiere la Bessée is less than 1km from the chalet with supermarkets, bars, and restuarants and everything needed for a weeks holiday.

Briançon, the highest (and 300 days a year!) sunniest town in Europe is just over 10 mins away with large supermarkets, casino, a beautiful Unesco Heritage old town, and an abundance of restuarants from simple mountain fayre to Michelin star establishments, full details of which are provided in our comprehensive guide book.

The nearest major airport is Turin in Italy situated approximately one and a half hours / two hours drive away.

Turin is a relatively small airport where airport taxes, and flights prices are lower than French and Swiss airports, and the crowds can be avoided. Car hire is also considerably cheaper in Italy.

The nearest French airport is at Grenoble and is approximately two and a quarter hours drive from the airport to the chalet.

The airports at Marseille and Lyon can be easily reached in under three hours by motorway/autoroute.

British Airways fly daily to Turin from Gatwick from £40 each way. BA also fly to Lyon & Marseille.

Easyjet has just announced a new winter weekend route from Gatwick to Turin, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Easyjet also fly to Grenoble, Lyon and Marseille.

Ryanair offer flights to Grenoble, Lyon and Marseille from Stanstead, and also to Cuneo from Dublin.

The train station in L'Argentiere la Bessée less than 1km away runs services to Briançon, Gap and Valance, and overnight service to Paris. There are connections at Paris to Lille, Calais and the Eurostar to the UK.

Les Vigneaux is approximately 660 miles from Calais and can be reached by car in around 10 hours.

15 minutes from St Crepin airport which services the huge Gliding Community who choose the Hautes Alpes for the stunning views.

Activities near Puy Saint Vincent

Puy St Vincent is a 7 minute drive from the chalet, with easy parking right on the slopes, whilst the Serre Chevalier lifts can be reached in around 12 minutes. The small 'secret' resort of Pelvoux is at the end of the Valley, also just 12 minutes away and is perfect for beginners with free nursery runs, and also with parking right by the slopes, so no walking with skis!

Also within easy reach are the resorts of Montgenèvre, Claviere & Sestriere in the Italian Milky Way, Risoul / Var, and La Grave. A weeks adult ski pass at Puy St Vincent is just €150 and gives you a day in each of the above resorts, plus a day in Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes! - The best value skiing around!

All the local ski resorts have English and English speaking ski instructors, creche facilities, and a wide choice of ski hire outlets (right on the slopes). Discounted ski hire deals are provided.

Off the slopes you will find dedicated Toboggon and Sledging areas at Puy St Vincent and Pelvoux and free ice skating, whilst Briançon offers indoor ice skating in the ice hockey arena used by the famous 'Diables Rouges' team. The sports centre here also has a great swimming pool centre with slides, or for a more relaxing apres-ski soak try the renowned baths and spa at 'Les Grands Bains du Monêtier' in Serre Chevalier, or the new outdoor heated pool on the slopes at Puy St Vincent.
