The story of Vaujany, an obscure mountain village in a sleepy valley, is the stuff of fairy tales. In the 1980s, a hydro-electric scheme was developed lower down the valley and the village was awarded a huge amount of compensation. The villagers decided to purchase a state-of-the art 160-person cable car and built a link with one of France's biggest ski areas, Alpe d'Huez. It was the village's salvation. Visitors can now enjoy the languid pace of life in Vaujany, while taking advantage of a huge skiing domain of almost 225km, served by some 85 lifts. A separate gondola provides alternative access via Vaujany's own ski area, Montfrais.
Sitting tiny, facing the splendid "Massif des Grandes Rousses" mountains Vaujany captures the charm and the seduction of an authentic Alpine high altitude village.
Blending tradition and modernity, Vaujany proposes visitors - top-class skiing, swimming, skating and trekking facilities amongst an unspoilt environment in beautiful mountain landscapes. Vaujany takes great pride in its efforts and success in conserving its traditional Alpine authenticity at the-same time as offering these in such a palatable form to both winter and summer holidays.
There are traditional, almost unchanged alpine small mountainfarms or crofts proposing mountain goatand cow cheese, fresh butter, milk, honey and fruit conserves.
