Christmas in La Plagne
Noel, 25th December
Wondering what to do this Christmas in La Plagne? The festive season in the snowy Alps is always magical and every year there is some sort of celebration in resort to mark the occasion.

Many of the restaurants will put on a special festive menu with champagne and traditional dishes, so book in advance if you want to treat yourself to a meal out.
