The original mountain village Puy Saint Vincent, whose roots date back to the 14th century, nowadays constitutes the lowest of the ski-regions 3 levels. Situated at an altitude of 1400 meters, the valley station of Puy Saint Vincent is split up into 3 districts. The majority of shops and the 6-seater chairlift into the skiing region is located in Les Prés. The townhall, the postal station and the tourism centre are in Les Alberts. Whereas Le Puy as the oldest district in Puy Saint Vincent 1400 most notably has numerous historical buildings on offer. Including, for example, the public baking oven, which is still used today.
After Les Pres began its transformation into the modern ski-resort Puy Saint Vincent 1400 in 1968, the second and third levels followed in 1974 with heights of 1600 and 1800 meters. The middle station Puy Saint Vincent 1600 at the centre of the skiing region has developed since then. Ski-tourists can reach the entire skiing area from here and the majority of pistes end here. In the directly connected station Puy Saint Vincent 1800, however, there are mainly accommodations in the form of comfortable chalets and apartment buildings.
