Pra Loup, the perfect location
On the Route des Grandes Alpes between Lake Geneva and the Mediterranean Sea, Pra Loup is within easy reach of Marseilles (2hrs30mins from Aix-en-Provence TGV train station and Marseilles-Provence Airport), Nice Côte d’Azur (2hrs30mins) and Grenoble, as well as Cuneo in Italy.
The resort’s choice location and well-known year-round appeal, along with a number of natural assets, give it a remarkable density of outstanding resources.
As if its winter popularity were not enough - it is one of the largest ski areas in the Southern Alps - the resort has reacted quickly to the expectations of holidaymakers in search of new sensations. The result is an all-MTB area for summer mountain bikers.
