Family resort, Puy-Saint-Vincent has an ideal location in the heart of the French Alps and the entrance of the Massif des Ecrins. Protected from winds, it enjoys sunshine and optimal snow conditions, enabling discovery and practice of winter sports under ideal conditions.

Easily accessible, it rhymes and scenery nearby, with an architectural heritage that invites you to travel back in time, between churches and chapels of the twelfth century, and a collection of sundials that invite you to enjoy the moment.

Quiet and authentic 1400 m, modern and festive 1600, fully released in 1800, it combines a variety of activities, relaxation, sport and discovery, and a whole program of entertainment and events, which make it an inexhaustible source of emotions.
