Chalet Le Soleil is the closest chalet to the Vanoise Express and is at the foot of the modern ‘Peisey’ eight man chair lift. The chalet is in the centre of Plan Peisey [part of Peisey-Vallandry] and at 1,650 metres offers a high likelihood of snow during a bad season, you can ski right to the door and reach both lifts in seconds. The high capacity Peisey lift will whisk you above 2,000 metres so you can ski into the other Les Arcs resorts. Alternatively, you can take the Vanoise Express across the valley to ski all of La Plagne.
The chalet was fully refurbished in 2008 and offers modern facilities including satellite TV, Internet, boot warmers and a high level of comfort for families. There are lots of restaurant facilities within easy reach as well as shops, ski school, ski hire and so on. Once at the resort you do not need a car.
The chalet is let on a self catering basis usually by the week from Saturday to Saturday, other periods may be available on request.
The Resort: Chalet Le Soleil is in the centre of Plan Peisey, part of Peisey Vallandry which is a family friendly resort in Les Arcs.The resort is the jump off point for the double decker Vanoise Express which takes 2,000 people per hour and takes four minutes to get you across the valley into La Plagne. On the door step of the Vanoise express, Chalet Le Soleil is truly at the heart of Paradiski which offers 425km of runs with plenty to offer beginners and the most advanced skier.
At 1650 metres Plan Peisey is an excellent resort for snow at the edge of the forest on the sunny side of the valley. The resort had snow cover even in the 06/07 season which was the worst for years so you can ski right to the door.
There's lots to do beside skiing for all the family.... horse drawn sleigh, dog sledding, climbing frozen waterfall, Nordic skiing, biathlon, snow shoeing, etc..
The Skiing: Skiing on the Les Arcs side is more extensive with everything for the most advanced skier and boarder but there is also plenty for beginners. The nursery slope is at the top of the Peisey lift making Peisey Vallandry the ideal resort for parties of mixed ability. At the foot of the lift is the ski school which offers plenty of instructors and lessons to suit all ages. Ski lift staff are very attentive to children whether accompanied by an adult or not.

I often get asked about Parking: There are marked bays at the roadside, depending on arrival time and height of season it is usually easy to get the nearest one to the chalet. There is no designated bay for the chalet, not needed. no payments or tickets to worry about. The chalet is up some steps so car may not be visible from the chalet.
