Villaroger

A quiet, secluded village at the foot of the mountain

Featured in:

Villaroger is the lowest of the villages in Les Arcs and the most secluded. It is an ideal destination for the skiers that don't want any distraction from skiing and are in need of some tranquility. 

The village is surrounded by thick forest but it has direct access to the pistes. It is very pretty and there are lots of peaceful looking chalets. Sleepy, but picturesque.

The closest town to Les Arcs is Bourg Saint Maurice. This is easily accessed via the funiculaire that runs everyday during the Winter and Summer seasons. There is a friendly local community and a few large supermarkets. There is also a swimming pool, train station, cinema and various bars and restaurants. It's lively throughout the year and there are some lovely local festivals and a Saturday market. To get to the funiculaire you can take the free bus (navette) to Les Arcs 1600.

Things to Do in Villaroger

In the winter there is a vast skiing/snowboarding area that links up with La Plagne to create the Paradiski area, one of the largest in the world. There is freeskiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, dog sledding, sledging, skidooing and ice caves! In the summer there are lots of activities as well; swimming, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, horse riding, golfing etc. You will not be bored!

Sights & Attractions in Villaroger

The advantage of being in Villaroger is that you are in a pivotal position. You can either visit Les Arcs or you can head to other resorts that are right on your doorstep like Sainte Foy, La Rosiere or even Tignes. You can easily reach the most spectacular view in Les Arcs from Villaroger. If you take the Replat chairlift to the Plan des Violettes, then take the Droset chairlift and ski down to the Varet bubble. At the top of the bubble you take the Aiguille rouge gondola and at the top you can have a 360° view of the Alps. It is truly breathtaking. You could also take a trip to visit the dam in Tignes. When it's drained you can see the remains of the long-since hidden town that once was. It can be very atmospheric, which is why a French TV program was filmed/based around this area.
