What a find! This aire is massive – split over two levels with epic views. Downstairs you’ll get a face full of trees and peaks and upstairs wall-to-wall mountain views – both equally appealing!
This is an excellent aire to team with Les Gets if you’re looking for a two stop with very different atmosphere. Novice motorhome skiers looking to try out an aire for the first time will like Praz de Lys aire – security of power with the feeling of being a bit more off grid.
- Up to 1 hour: free access to use the disposal facilities
- 1- 24 hours: €10/night
- 24-72 hours: €10/night
- From 72 hours: 8 € for every 24 hours

You cannot book this aire but with 70 spaces, it is very unusual to find it full.
Getting to Praz de Lys Aire
Once you’ve negotiated a few switch backs the road opens up and you just need to keep a beady eye open for the left hand turn (well sign posted from the road), just after the hotel/bar/restaurant which serves awesome pizza until late o’clock.
It’s barrier controlled (although we came at a very quiet time and the barriers were up). If you’re filling up with water and grabbing jetons, best you do it before you pick your spot as all the services are up at the entrance and it’s a one way system. Same goes for grey water disposal.
This area is nuts for Nordic so that’s what you’ll find in the guide books BUT, there’s lovely alpine skiing which is all ski-to-the-door.
It was super quiet in December with only 3 other campers but space maxes out at about 70.
- Easy to park up
- Great two stopper with Les Gets
- 16 Amp 24h power (€ Jetons)
- Epic views
- Bar on the doorstep
- All other facilities (supermarket etc) a good 15 minute walk (1.2 km)
