The skiable area of Arêches-Beaufort offers 50km of snow-covered pistes.
• woodpark, secret spot and freestyle park for experienced skiers,
• "Première Trace" centre for beginners
• snowshoe or alpine hiking,
• cross-country skiing or walks on foot.

It's up to you to choose how to enjoy the magic of the landscape! And of course you won't go home from your skiing holiday in Arêches-Beaufort without the "Prince of Gruyères": the Beaufort cheese!

At 1200m of altitude,  3km from the village of Arêches, the residence is based in the hamlet of Le Planay, approximately 300m from the pistes of Le Planay. Free resort shuttle between Arêches and Le Planay!

Accommodation

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

Disabled access

2 Disabled apartments

Accomodation:
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.
Access:
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.
Parking:
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.
Pool:
The swimming pool is hard to access without assistance: non-disabled footbath.
