Summer holidays in the mountains in the land of the Beaufortain.

Heritage, traditions, regional produce, local festivals, wooden chalets...the Beaufortain will reveal its charm and secrets! At 1,200m of altitude, in the village of Le Planay, the VTF holiday village is made up of 3 chalets: enjoy a holiday let at Arêches Beaufort at an affordable price for the whole family.

The enjoyable mountain climate and exceptional sunshine levels of this resort will make your full-board or half-board stay at Arêches more than pleasant.


3 chalets 27 bedrooms for 2 to 4 pers. over 2 floors
14 apartments for 4 to 6 pers. with 2 bedrooms (each with bathroom facilities), living-room with kitchenette, balcony or terrace

Standard accommodation plan


Disabled access

2 Disabled apartments

Small apartment: by turning the bed 180°, a disabled person can move around! Level-access terrace.
Spacious, easy-to-access bathroom, equipped with a shower for wheelchair, toilets with power-grip, only the sink is slightly higher than usual.
Easy access to reception, bar, lounge and restaurant.
No access to the children's' clubs, sauna and TV room.
NOTE In winter, communal areas must be accessed via the outside. In extreme cases of heavy snowfall, it would be impossible for a wheelchair user to leave the apartment without assistance from someone else.
No disabled parking spaces but a site nearby is possible.
Difficult in winter if only for vehicles, since the car park is gravelled, not tarmacked, so snow can only be cleared from this type of car park with a ground-scraping blade. There will always be clumps of snow, ice or water.
The swimming pool is hard to access without assistance: non-disabled footbath.
