The villages of Vars
The ski area
Discover Vars Sainte Marie, a mountain village at the heart of the Foret Blanche ski area !  

Vars and its villages are situated on the thresold of the Parc National des Ecrins and of the Parc Régional du Queyras. Vars even have its own natural preserved area, the Val d'Escreins, a wonderful valley that is now part of the Queyras Park.

Vars is a perfect base to embark on scenic journeys to the Queyras and Ubaye Valleys, to Briançon, to Montdauphin (18th century citadel)... Summer activities are plentiful: paragliding, mountain hiking, mountain biking, cycling, rafting (15km away) ... or sun bathing.

Located in the very center of the village,

Vars Sainte-Marie is an authentic village that nevertheless has all the advantages of a large ski-resort featuring modern lifts and well groomed runs.
In the village: two ski rental shops, a newsagents, a supermarket, the tourist office, the town-hall and church, a post office, other hotels, restaurants and chalets and still a few farms.

Situated 1.5 km (1 mile) from the hotel is Vars-les-claux: a large modern ski resort with an ice-skating ring, a cinema, nightclubs, shopping centres and ski schools. Sainte-Catherine and Saint-Marcellin are two more traditionnal hamlets close by (a free shuttle bus links all of the villages).
