ABOUT AUSSOIS

Aussois is a commune in the Savoie region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in Southeastern France. It is situated in the Maurienne valley, 7 km away from Modane and near the Vanoise National Parc, France's first National Park. It is also at the foot of the Dent Parrachee, one of the highest peaks of the Vanoise.

 

The main activity of the village remains agricultural, but has become a popular family ski resort in winter and a beautiful mountain destination in summer.
