Val Cenis

Val Cenis is the largest resort in Haute-Maurienne Vanoise. In the heart of the scenic and unspoilt Haute Maurienne region and bordering on the stunning Parc National de la Vanoise.

Val Cenis comprises two traditional villages - Lanslebourg and Lanslevillard - which have been combined into one resort. It has retained its charm and tradition and visitors are guaranteed a genuinely warm welcome from the local people who run the resort themselves - so there’s no need for uncommitted seasonal labour here!

Seasoned travellers can visit the Centre des Glières in Lanslevillard (near Les Balcons du Village residence) which has an ice rink, swimming pool and whirlpool. It’s great value for money! You get free access when you book accommodation with the Val Cenis Les Balcons du Village and Les Balcons en Haut.

Away from the slopes in Val Cenis, enjoy a visit to the fromagerie or the 12 chapels culture trail. The weekly welcome drinks, street animation and torchlight descents are not to be missed. The après ski in Val Cenis is quiet but the many restaurants and bars and two cinemas should keep everyone happy. A good variety of shops and supermarkets ensure that those self-catering will find all they require. Val Cenis ski resort is only half an hour's drive from Modane and the motorway exit.
