The sun-drenched Vars and its ski area "La Forêt Blanche" is one of the most popular winter sports resorts in the southern Mediterranean Alps. The modern ski resort comprises 4 villages: St. Marcellin, St. Marie, St. Catherine and Les Claux - the whole resort is especially popular with families and children, as well young people. Due to it's altitude at 1,850 m, Vars belongs to those resorts in France with terrific snow conditions, in spite of the many hours of sunshine during winter. Freestylers will find great conditions here with a total number of six snow parks. Another once can be found in Risoul.
Remember if you don't find quite what you are looking for you can always give us a call. We are ready to help you find your perfect alpine holiday. Or perhaps you might like to consider an alternative destination? For example have you considered Sestriere in Italy? - If you choose to stay in one of our Sestriere chalets, you can look forward to Europe’s first purpose built resort, which was designed and built in the 1930’s and hosted the 2006 winter Olympics. With high altitude west facing slopes, Sestriere was built for snow. Or perhaps as a possible alternative suggestion how about Seefeld in Austria? - Renting one of our Seefeld ski chalets? You can expect a traditional Tirolean style upmarket resort with a large pedestrian only centre. Seefeld’s cross-country trails are some of the best in the Alps. [Less]
