La Plagne Resort selection
Our favorites for each destination
Champagny en Vanoise is on the south side of La Plagne and has a ‘village’ part and an upper part (Champagny le Haut) that have quite different atmospheres. Champagny has kept the Savoyard spirit of the old villages with a year-round life. Ideally situated at the entrance to Vanoise National Park, it is an eldorado for those looking to switch off from their everyday life. Its south-facing exposure offers sunny slopes with great views of the Vanoise glaciers!
With its ‘Famille Plus’ label, Montchavin les Coches is perfect for families looking for charm and ease. The traditional village, convivial atmosphere and strategic geographical position make this the perfect place for families! Les Coches, the upper part of the village built more recently, is in keeping with Montchavin’s traditional construction whish offering accommodation that meets holidaymakers’ requirements.
Montalbert is one of the three lower Plagne villages, along with Montchavin la Plagne and Champagny en Vanoise. Like the other two, the village of Montalbert is very family-friendly. Life is easy here and you can enjoy a tranquil holiday, with events such as the Dolce Vita festival in summer and Zen Week in the winter.
This is where it all started, the part known locally as the ‘altitude’ area which was the birthplace of the winter sports resort. Plagne Centre, built in 1961, was the starting point for the construction of 7 villages, all situated above 1800m. At the end of 21 (numbered) hairpin bends, you come to: Plagne 1800, Plagne Centre, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages, Plagne Aime 2000, Plagne Bellecôte and, finally, Belle Plagne. Architectural styles and atmospheres differ so that everyone can find their personal favourite.
At the entrance to the resort, La Plagne Valley runs along the Isère river at around 700m altitude. Its towns, with their shops and train/bus station have a year-round and a seasonal population. Its historical monuments like the 1000-year old Saint Martin’s basilica and the Montmayeur tower are part of a rich cultural offer that echoes the Savoyard traditions perpetuated for centuries in the hamlets along the valley.
