About Les Arcs / Peisey-Nancroix
Peisey Nancroix is renowned for the famous Beaufort cheese and has achieved the AOC label for it’s quality. In the winter the cows and the sheep are put into their winter homes and in the village this still means in the same house as the owner, down is the cellar under the owners living area. Even in the winter you can visit the cheese farm and see how this delicious cheese is made.
The village has a genuine feel of a winter ski resort but has not lost it’s identity as a working village. The landmark Baroque Church sits high up in the village and is a 1000 yrs old. The lift system out of the village is old but it works ! the beauty is you can stay in a wonderful village but have easy and quick access to the skiing.
