Maison des Quatre Balcons (Ski Hostel)
Small, friendly ski/snowboard/Mountain Bike hostel at the heart of the superb Les Arcs/La Plagne (Paradiski) ski area.
Open Summer & Winter.
Basic Self Catered, accommodation, 4/6 pers to a room. Cooking and shower facilities provided. Bed sheet, pillow and pillow case provided but do bring a sleeping bag.
Situated in the beautiful unspoilt little Alpine village of Nancroix we are ideally suited for the winter & summer sports enthusiast.
During the winter season there is a free shuttle bus leaving from Nancroix every half hour during the day linking us to the Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry lift system (5 minute trip). The first bus in the morning takes us directly to the 'Vanoise Express' cable car which is the link lift between Les Arcs and La Plagne. There is also a reduced bus service in the Evenings running until around 11pm (monday to friday).
Nancroix is a quiet little village and there is no bar in the village but the bars in main resort can be accessed via the free winter evening buses or a taxi or during the summer via a 20 min walk to the next village.
Unfortunately as a small hostel we cannot provide separate male/female dorms and although we will do our best to separate the dorms this is not always possible (particularly at busy times).
There is no age restriction as such but we cannot accept young children, the hostel is not suitable.
If you have expectations of luxury accommodation then the hostel is not for you but if you want to ride one of the best ski/mountain bike areas in the world on a budget and stay with like minded individuals then this is the perfect place and we look forward to welcoming you.
