A village with extra spirit

Made up of hamlets with traditional buildings in wood and stone, Champagny-en-Vanoise became a small winter sports resort in 1971. You will love the charm of the village, its Baroque church and the little streets with a chapel and oratories. Here, the locals really know how to welcome guests. Furnished accommodation is proposed for rent, from studios to chalets sleeping 15 people, all with their own style of decoration. The owners offer their guests a special welcome, telling them about secret off-piste itineraries and the best places to eat in the village. It is not unusual to have a bottle of Savoie wine or a slice of Beaufort cheese awaiting you on arrival.

Reconnect with nature in the Vallon de Champagny le Haut and the Vanoise National Park

Paradise for hikers and nature lovers, the listed natural site of Champagny le Haut, at the altitude of 1500m, is home to five hamlets of character listed in the architectural heritage inventory: La Couaz, La Chiserette, Le Bois, Friburge and Le Laisonnay.

Exceptional setting, ideal for recharging your batteries, it offers many hiking possibilities as well as mountain bike and electric mountain bike routes. Choose your location at the Le Canada campsite or stop at one of the area's refuges: Le Bois and Le Laisonnay (accessible by car), La Glière, and Le Plan des Gouilles.

Disabled persons and families going out with a stroller will also have the pleasure of exploring the valley via the comfort walk. Animal lovers will enjoy cani-hiking and horseback riding (or pony rides for the little ones).

Beyond Champagny le Haut lie the vast wild spaces of the Vanoise National Park, the first national park created in 1963. Whether you go alone, with your loved ones or in a group with a guide, you will not forget these mythical places, such as the dry lake of Glière and its chapel, the Col de la Grassaz… Pay attention to the movements of ibex, chamois and marmots and watch bearded vultures hovering. The flora is not to be outdone with its edelweiss, rhododendrons and gentians. Finally, mountain bikers will appreciate the pastoral track of La Grande Plagne, the only mountain bike route in the heart of the Park from Champagny.
