Villar d'Arène is located in the Ecrins National Park after Col du Lautaret. It's a peaceful little mountain village, proud of its church built from yellow stone which faces onto a pretty square with a fountain.
Half-way between two mini ski resorts at La Grave-La Meije (1525m) and Col du Lautaret (2000m), which have a number of ski lifts and more than 10 kilometres of ski runs between them, Villar d'Arène is an ideal location for family skiing in a landscape of majestic mountains !
