If you are looking for a ski resort traditional, unlike the bling-bling resorts of Courchevel or Chamonix, meet at Bonneval-sur-Arc, the most unspoiled of the village resorts in France .

It is in Savoie, facing the Vanoise National Park and in the hollow of the Maurienne valley , that Bonneval-sur-Arc is successful in a grandiose setting. Here, no buildings without soul, but stone houses and typical Savoyard slate roofs . No electric wires either, nor too many cars that could distort the place.

The pearl of Savoy

Bonneval-sur-Arc has succeeded in combining the modern infrastructure of a ski resort with the charm of rustic chalets. The latter, which each have a name and not a number, have a robust architecture, thick walls made of stone from the region and covered with lime.

The beauty of this place sublimated by the snow in winter is undeniable and it is therefore logical that the mountain resort has been classified among the Plus Beaux Villages de France .

L'Ecot, the hamlet of Belle et Sébastien

Going up a pretty path 4 kilometers above the center of Bonneval-sur-Arc, walkers arrive in a small hamlet full of authenticity called Ecot . Here at 2000 meters above sea level, time seems to have stood still in this tiny village with stone chalets that blend into nature. Erected in the Middle Ages and restored in 1971, it was chosen as the setting for the village of Sébastien in the adventures of "Belle et Sébastien".

In both summer and winter, we avoid crowds in Bonneval-sur-Arc.

In winter, the snow is thick, up to 80 cm. It must be said that we are here between 1800 and 3638 meters of altitude, at the foot of the Iseran pass, in the highest ski resort of Haute-Maurienne. Thanks to its high altitude, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy the 32 kilometers of alpine ski slopes and snowboarding until April!
