Termignon Resort Information
A little known gem for lovers of traditional French villages in stunning surroundings, Termignon-la-Vanoise is a small resort that oozes ambience at the gateway of the Vanoise National Park.
Termignon is primarily a ski resort and one of the largest French communes. It represents nearly a third of the central area of National Park, which has 16 glaciers and 63 peaks over 3,000 metres, and is the home to wolves, lynx and various rare bird species. You can go there in search of magnificent scenery on snowshoes, skis, or just hiking in.
Termignon’s farming roots remain strong with local families still residing in the village as they have for generations. This means that superb local yogurts, jams, honey and charcuterie can be found in the shops and restaurants. The ‘Bleu de Termignon’ cheese is one to try in the ‘Chez Anouchka’ fromagerie.
Termignon village is fairly small but there are still a few genuine craft shops, a wine shop, boulangeries, mini-supermarket, two cheese shops and a honey merchant. There are also eight restaurants to suit all tastes, and two bars. There are a handful of gourmet food shops and eight restaurants but in addition a surprising list of activities to enjoy in the area including cross-country skiing, ice climbing, paragliding and dog sledding.
Snow shoeing is very popular in the area with four marked routes and the opportunity to walk out with a guide or on your own with a map provided by the tourist office. If you become especially fascinated with the history of the area you may like to take the free bus to nearby Sollières-Sardières to visit the archaeology museum.
Peak Retreats features self-catered apartments in Termignon. Enjoying a central location and views over the national park, 'Les Balcons de la Vanoise' provides the ideal base for a Termignon ski holiday.
