The hotel is situated at the entrance to the village of Belle Plagne, a village built in a traditional Savoyard style at an altitude of 2050 ms high. The hotel is just 2 minutes walk from the centre of the village, which offers a wide variety of shops including a bakery, supermarket with butcher, shops selling local produce, its own ski school, ski hire shops, bars and restaurants, a bowling alley and the most popular night spot in the resort.
La Plagne is located in the heart of the Savoie and is connected to Les Arcs by the Vanoise Express and is close to the resorts of Meribel and Courchevel in the Tarentaise Valley, Tignes / Val d’Isère, and La Rosière.
The piste from the back-door of the hotel leads directly down to Plagne Bellecôte with its modern and efficient lifts giving you access to the entire Paradiski skiing area.
In total there are 239 runs – comprising 29 black, 66 red, 132 blue and 12 green – covering a massive 425 kms of piste. The area is serviced by 144 lifts, with lower slopes at 1200 metres going up to glaciers of 3250 metres; so skiing is assured throughout the winter season.
Cross country skiers can explore 90km of marked trails around Plagne Montalbert including tremendous scenic forest trails and several high level routes.
There’s plenty of choice with a snowpark in Belle Plagne, a permanent half pipe in Plagne Bellecôte and a snowboarding area with sound system in Montchavin/Les Coches and Champany en Vanoise.
At the end of the day
Ski back to your suite and soak in a hot, bubbling Jacuzzi outside in the snow or enjoy a relaxing massage to ease those muscles before getting ready for the evening.
