The village-resort gem
At the bottom of the Iseran pass (elevation 2,764 metres), the village resort of Bonneval-sur-Arc attracts skiers looking for wide open spaces and holidaymakers in search of revitalisation.
Classified as one of the “most beautiful villages in France”, Bonneval-sur-Arc is an array of traditional stone chalets with slate roofs.
Between the Parc National de la Vanoise, the glaciers (Evettes, Grand Méan, Sources de l’Arc, etc.) and the Ecot hamlet, Bonneval-sur-Arc is quite simply the “gem of village resorts” of Haute Maurienne Vanoise.
You simply cannot spend a week at Bonneval without visiting the Ecot hamlet. On foot, on skis or with showshoes… it’s up to you, as long as you get there! This key spot exists beyond time: the excuse of going up to Ecot for a coffee is an extremely good one!
