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.
From the village 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.
