Pra Loup has quite a big ski area which is lift linked to the neighbouring resort of La Foux. Pra Loup itself is divided in to two, the main original resort and then a new development a mile or so away with nicer modern accommodation. We stayed in that and had a great apartment, but most of the facilities were up at the original village so we spent a lot of time driving up there trying to find a place to park or on the ski bus. There's a good mix of ski runs and I visited with my younger brother who was well looked after is the ski school. At the top resort there's a nice semi-covered arcade of shops and restaurants - must be 20 or 30 - so everything was easy to reach and we had a good affordable meal each night, usually crepes or pizza. So all in all it was just a nice relaxed place. We drove up from Nice and i think a lot of other people come from Marseille. It is mostly French guests there, not many international.
