In Haute Maurienne Vanoise, at the gateway to the protected habitat of the Vanoise National Park, the mountain village of Aussois oozes with authenticity. This is where your children will make their best holiday memories, and this is where you will share with them a breath of fresh air, recharge your batteries and explore.

Aussois in Summer:

This traditional mountain village stands on a high plateau, 1,500 metres above sea level, on the south-facing slopes of the Vanoise National Park. Long before the creation of this protected natural area in 1963, people were already coming here to walk or to climb the Dent Parrachée (3,697m). A family house, a hotel and a holiday camp gave families and children the opportunity to enjoy the fresh mountain air and observe the ibex, chamois, marmots and edelweiss.

Nowadays, a whole host of activities are on offer and the village has its own leisure centre with swimming pool and spa, a pumptrack, children’s play areas, etc…
In the home of the “Transmaurienne Vanoise” mountain bike race, you will be able to choose from more than 200 km of maintained, waymarked mountain bike trails, rated from green to black with the Enduro trail.

Boasting “Famille Plus” certification since 2006, Aussois has become THE resort for families and a benchmark destination for successful mountain holidays. Your children are sure to love it here! They can pretend to be soldiers at the Esseillon forts, search for the Secrets of Victory in the streets of the village, learn to climb on the Croé rocks or the “Angelots” via ferrata trail, go for a walk with a sled dog or a donkey, and even fish in the streams and dam lakes of Plan d’Amont and Plan d’Aval.

In the forest and elsewhere, set off with confidence along the waymarked hiking trails to reach the refuges and lakes of the Vanoise National Park, or join the guided hikes organised by the Guides & Wardens Bureau to explore with them the exceptional wealth of mountain flora and fauna.

The local area has an incredibly rich cultural heritage. The baroque church of Notre-Dame de l’Assomption and its rood beam, the chapels and oratories, the wash houses and fountains, the bread furnace and of course the impressive 19th-century Esseillon forts which bear the first names of the royal family of Piedmont-Sardinia. A visit to the “Arche d’Oé” museum is a must to learn a little more and meet the elders, who will tell you all about farming life and how things used to be!
Aussois is a sunny, vibrant village with deep-rooted traditions that go back for centuries. It is said of the “Aussoyens or Oérins” (inhabitants of Aussois) that they are welcoming, warm-hearted people who love to share. If you’re not convinced, come along on 15th August to experience the traditional village festival!

For a carefree holiday in the mountains, take advantage of the Activity Pass which, among other advantages, gives you unlimited access to the Grand Jeu chairlift.
