Welcome to La Plagne
La Plagne is a collection of small, purpose-built ski resorts and traditional villages located on the edge of the Vanoise National Park. Each resort/village is separate from one another (although they are linked by ski lift and shuttle buses) and each has their own character and ambience. It's renowned as a family-friendly resort, with a good selection of beginner pistes and ski areas, as well as those for the more advanced skier or snowboarder.
The purpose-built resorts are found at high altitudes (1800m to 2100m) so most of the accommodation is ski-in ski-out. They all have a good choice of apartments, chalets and hotels, restaurants and nightlife. The more traditional villages of Monchavin, Montalbert and Les Coches lie at lower altitudes (1250m to 1450m) and have their own local pistes as well as being linked to the wider La Plagne ski area. In addition, La Plagne is part of the famous Paradiski ski area which combines the ski areas of both La Plagne & neighbouring Les Arcs, joined together by the Vanoise Express cable car.
Getting around the resorts is easy thanks to free shuttle buses and a great network of ski lifts, some of which are also open at night to help visitors get from their accommodation to try different restaurants, shops and bars in the neighbouring resorts.
