The richness of the nature here is endless: the Great Peak of Lauzière, the mountain pass of Madeleine, the Cheval Noir, the peaks of Maurienne and Vanoise, all at more than 2000 meters, and all offering a spectacular scenery. You can go climbing or escalating at various sites and altitudes, even above 3000 meters, or you can choose from among a number of hiking routes. In July you have the possibility to participate in the Transmonjoie walking race or in the adventure circuits organized in the Nant Burian forest. Having at your disposal a ski lift, you can also visit the Bleu et Blanc lake. Another place that is certainly worth visiting is the Glacier de l’Étendard.
Do not miss: the Festival de la Lune Bleue (the Festival of the Blue Moon) which takes place in July, and in August the festival of the village.
The resort also has shops that are very close to the residence (about 50 meters) and an aquatic center called Le Forum des Eaux Bernard Hinault, for swimming and balneotherapy, in other words, for relaxation.
