Perched half-way up the wooded flanks of the Col du Glandon, the valley's two sunny villages, Saint Colomban and Saint Alban des Villards, are brought to life by the burbling springs and mountain streams and crowned by the snow-capped summits of Le Sambuis, Le Puy Gris and Les Argentières.

With the onset of a winter, the village resort offers quality skiing without the crowds and lift queues, as well as a safe winter sports environment to suit skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. And with over 1200 m of vertical height, the challenges on offer are sufficient to get the best out of everyone. Snowshoe excursions by moonlight, torch-lit descents and a glass of vin chaud, local specialities (matouille, teillons). The Vallée des Villards is a source of so many unforgettable memories. In addition, the upper reaches of the valley present a remarkably unspoilt natural environment, readily accessible to backcountry ski enthusiasts seeking the sense of freedom and exhilaration of a descent through deep, fresh powder.

Ideal as a winter holiday location, the Vallée des Villards is also the premier gateway into Les Sybelles - with 310 km of trails, now one of France's largest skiable areas.
