This little French town is prepared anytime for satisfying the tourists needs, being equipped with artificial snow installations, in case there is a lack of snow or no snow at all, in order to keep the skiers running on the tracks (being very near to the near-by country of Italy, receiving most of the time warm currents from the Mediterranean Sea).

This place is not only the heaven on earth for the ski enthusiasts it has also been world-renown by receiving medals and labels in the tourism domain. This tourist resort has earned the label of “Petit Montagnard”, which accredits this little town on the tree-lined lower slopes that are perfect for the family vacations.

If all this has not convinced you till now, there is one more thing. This area is enjoying more than 300 sunny days per year, although we are talking about a mountainous area, not about a sea tourist resort.
