Pra Loup

March 5th

   France  France £585.00

Pra Loup has developed into one of the leading ski resort in the Southern Alps since it becoming a tourist attraction in 1961. Although developing dramatically Pra Loup has never neglected to respect the surrounding environment and the nature has stayed almost untouched since the 60's. The scenery around the resort is stunning and will make your skiing experience even more fulfilling.

  • Friendly area, with Provençal atmosphere

  • Convenient, purpose built village

  • 8th largest ski area in France


    The Pra Loup skiing area is actually two mountain resorts linked by the Vallon des Agneliers valley. The skiing suits all levels of skiers and you will have access to 53 lifts and an amazing total of 165 kilometers of prepared pistes. 19 snow cannons along with the usual deep cover of natural snow will make sure that the lifts always are open.

    After you are done skiing for the day you can visit one of the 23 restaurants or go shopping for souvenirs in the many shops.

    One of Pra Loup’s main claims to fame is it’s splendid, unspoilt scenery. The craggy outcrops, larch woods and brilliant sunshine and characteristic of the mountains of Provence. This area has a different atmosphere to the northern Alps and the village in general is more warm and friendly. Pra Loup is now a fairly large village, most of the shops, cafés and bars are located centrally at the foot of the slopes. It’s fairly lively, well equipped and pleasant, with few of the multi-storey blocks or other eyesores one normally associates with purpose built villages. Pra Loup is very convenient and our hotel has a perfect location, right opposite the skating rink.
