Val Cenis is a beautiful winter sports village, existing out of two authentic Savoyan villages named Lanslebourg and Lanslevillard. The village is situated near the border of Italy, between the national park of Vanoise and the regional park of Avigliana. Due to the affordable prices and its child-friendliness the village is an ideal destination for families with children. Lanslevillard is a larger village than Lanslebourg, with excellent restaurants, some nice bars, a pharmacy and an ice rink. There are also various possibilities in the field of relaxation such as a swimming pool, sauna and a public thermal bath.
From both villages there are several ski lifts departing into the Val Cenis Vanoise ski area, covering over 125 km of slopes. The area offers a great variation and is therefore suitable for skiers and snowboarders of each degree. Beginners are offered several green slopes, e.g. the Escargot, the longest green slopes of Europe. With good snow-conditions the runs to the valley are quite gentle, which makes it possible for everyone to ski down (if there is enough snow) to the valley at the end of the day. Experienced skiers are challenged at the black slopes and there are also off-piste runs available. Snowboarder can enjoy the two boardercross slopes or the easy park.
In the area of Val Cenis there are several possibilities to go hiking, offering amazing views due to the surrounding mountaintops in the area. Cross-country lovers can enjoy themselves in the neighbouring village Bessans, where 80 km of slopes are offered.
