- Catered Chalet
- Sleeps 8 - 10
The open plan layouts of the chalets make for them being a very social place to be, relaxing wtih fellow guest discussing the days adventures on the mountain.
The Chalet Alpages are located on the edge of the piste in La Plagne
Village & Soleil. A short walk of approximately 5 minutes will take
you to the centre of either.
Here you will find the ski hire shop where you will pick up any ski or snowboarding equipment you may have hired.
There is also a small selection of bars and restaurants that serve anything from French fries, pizzas to the more traditional Savoyard cuisine.
All the chalets are located on edge of a blue run. A short walk either up a few steps or letting gravity do the work the preference at the start of the day is to take the steps down, through a number of chalets within the Alpage Hamlet, and a couple of minutes later you are at the edge of the piste.
The piste is a gentle blue run which leads guests down towards the ski school meeting place and also the chair lift system into the Paradiski domain.
At the end of the day getting back to the chalet take the easy runs to the top of the Alpage Hamlet, follow the chales down and you will end up at the top of the stairs which leads down to the chalet.
The chalets are made up of different sizes. There are chalet units available accommodating 8 to 10 guests thus allowing flexibility when booking smaller groups or families.

About La Plagne
La Plagne ski area
In 2003, the double-decker cable car between La Plagne and Les Arcs opened and in a single moment created the Paradiski. With 420km of lift linked pistes, high altitude skiing, 2 glaciers and a modern lift system, this is now one of the powerhouse resorts of the French Alps.
Beginners and early intermediates will thrive on the runs in and around the 10 villages of La Plagne. Gentle, mostly tree-lined and snow-sure, you could hardly think of a better destination for family skiing. Stronger skiers are catered for too though, with 220km of pistes in La Plagne and the prospect of another 200km over in Les Arcs. Yes, there are other resorts that offer a bit more if everyone in your party is an advanced skier, but you will not find a better ski destination for a mixed abilty group or family!
La Plagne ski resort
La Plagne is split into 10 smaller villages, all with enough to make them a resort in their own right. It's important to ensure you've researched exactly which resort you're staying in and that it's suitable for your needs. The most likely places you'll end up are:
Plagne Centre: As the name suggests, this is the focal point of La Plagne. The main hub of lifts is here and most runs will point towards Plagne Centre. A good choice of bars and restuarants, plus a couple of nightclubs.
Aime 2000: Not to be confused with Aime, the valley town, Aime 2000 is perched above Plagne Centre. If you're staying here with us then you're almost certainly in one of the Club Med hotels, so everything you need will be on site and free! Direct piste access and the Télémetro cable car runs to Plagne Centre until the early hours so a night out is also possible.
Plagne Soleil: Just above Plagne Centre on the opposite side to Aime. Plagne Soleil is small without many distinguishing features but close enough to Plagne Centre to enjoy an evening or two away from your chalet.
Plagne Villages: Another smaller collection of chalets and apartments, with brilliant piste access and just close enough to Plagne Centre for evening entertainment if needed.
Plagne 1800: Nestled in the woods below Plagne Centre, Plagne 1800 offers a lot of catered chalets and has everything you need without having to go all the way to Plagne Centre. A choice of lifts in the morning depending on which direction you want to go.
Belle Plagne: The most modern village in La Plagne, Belle Plagne is also the next largest after Plagne Centre. Attractively laid out and, like the rest of La Plagne, ski convenience is king. A good choice of catered and self-catered accommodation which are almost all on the piste.
Plagne Bellecote: A small village essentially consisting of one large apartment building and some communal facilities. There is a large outdoor heated swimming pool here.
Montchavin & Les Coches: 2 villages that were forgotten outposts of La Plagne until the Vanoise Express came along. Now they're in prime position, you can easily access either side of the Paradiski in moments and, unlike Plagne Centre or Arcs 200, you could quite easily nip over for just an hour or two without the long transition.
