Altitude 1 350 m - the perfect village for recharging your batteries with your #tribe, with views of Mont-Blanc.
In summer, Plagne Montalbert, a village at medium altitude, enjoys an ideal location looking across to Mont-Blanc. As soon as you arrive, you will be charmed by the spectacular panorama, the forest close by and the atmosphere of the typically Savoyard village with its traditional mountain architecture that you see as you wander along the pretty pedestrian shopping street. If you want to go hiking for a few hours or a whole day, the trails take you rapidly into the dense and unspoiled forest, alongside refreshing streams and waterfalls. You can also opt for the canine version of a hike, the "Cani Rando", where walkers are pulled along by sled dogs. For a great end to the day, there is nothing like reading a few pages of your favourite book on the huge panoramic terrace of Le Fornelet or a wild 125 m descent on the giant waterslide.
In winter, with its pretty traditional chalets, Plagne Montalbert offers an authentic and magical atmosphere. It is no coincidence that Phil Howard, the renowned Michelin-starred chef from London, decided to open his gastronomic restaurant Union here, serving fresh seasonal and local products. The perfect departure point for skiers, Plagne Montalbert is linked to the Paradiski® area by its high-performance gondola. The village is known for its entertainment and events, particularly the Comedy Festival and Zen Week, a week dedicated to wellness. If you want to discover a different aspect of the mountain, you can try the latest snow sports: airboard, snakegliss, monogliss, ski trikke or yooner and enjoy dog sledding or a drive in a Swincar (a small 4x4 electric vehicle) in fabulous natural surroundings. Apartments and residences offer a range of formulas for the perfect holiday.
