La Plagne is made up of 11 villages in total each offering a different feel and activities. 4 of our 5 chalets reside in the picturesque village of Plagne 1800, with the exception of our piste side option; Chalet Yogi further up in Plagne Centre. Plagne 1800 contains everything you need on your holiday from bars, to a supermarket and several restaurants which we can recommend. There is a free shuttle bus that links the nearby villages of Plagne Bellcote and Plagne centre so you are able to easily explore further afield.
“La Plagne itself is a fabulous resort , everyone is very friendly and we felt very welcome everywhere”
“Because La Plagne is such a high resort, good snow is the norm”
La Plagne has a number of different activities on offer if you are looking for that little bit extra. The 1.5km Olympic Bobsleigh track provides a rush of adrenaline with several different riding options available. You can enjoy the experience alone, with friends or even in the safe hands of a professional bob racer! Or why not soar through the air on the zip line linking Aime 2000 and Plagne centre.
You can explore the slopes by husky ride, on skidoo or by foot on a snow-shoe adventure. Or instead why not take a seated option and ride down the toboggan track that brings you down into Plagne centre. You can even explore the bird’s eye view of La Plagne and take to the skies for a parasailing adventure!
From complete novices to the experts, there is always room for improvement. We work closely with two ski schools if you are in need of some tuition regardless of your ability. Whether its telemarking, cross-country, off-piste, snowboarding or freestyle they are sure to have you covered! The ski schools meet in Plagne Centre. Although with private lessons you can sometimes make alternative arrangements for them to meet you in Plagne 1800.
The first company ‘Reflex’ is great for private tuition or small groups to really hone in on what you need to improve and get the most out of your time on the slopes.
Reflex are a small team of ski, snowboard and telemark instructors with many years of teaching experience and extensive knowledge of the La Plagne and Paradiski area.
They have group lessons over February and Easter holidays, but we mainly recommend them for private lessons. This is due to their small structure which allows them to focus on personalized tuition adapted to each individual so you can really get the most out of your lesson time. All their ski instructors speak very good English. They also offer snow-shoeing trips.
Oxygene is the second company we work closely with who are great for group lessons. They offer a number of different options depending on your needs, and also do snowboard taster days if you fancy trying something new! They are a large family run company whose instructors all speak English. They also run a minibus pick up service for their lessons which can be helpful for complete novices to get to the meeting point in Plagne Centre on time.
We can help organise your ski lessons before your holiday.
Whether you just want to head back to the chalet to eat cake and have a nap, or you’re ready to unwind with a few beers we’ve got you covered! There are a number of bars in town that provide live music for Aprés. If it’s a piste side party you’re looking for then you can ski straight into Bergerie restaurant for a dance and a warming Vin Chaud! La Bergerie has underwent a huge expansion last year consisting of a new outdoor venue with a DJ Balcony and Ski Gondola VIP Booth! The big party day here is Wednesday so be sure to not miss out.
Bar La Mine is a traditional English pub down in Plagne 1800. Their décor follows a mining theme and they often have live music acts between 5-7pm that you can catch before returning to your chalet for dinner. If you miss this then there is likely to be another dose of music starting from 10.30pm, or live sport on TV.
Scotties in Plagne centre follows a similar pattern with live music in their bar from 5pm. It is a British run bar with a well-received happy hour straight as you come off the piste. You can either listen to the music inside or sit on their large deck and enjoy people watching as they pass.
Bar Le Brix just slightly set back from the slopes offers a wide range of drinks and is a good choice if you’re looking for somewhere quieter with a nice décor.
Café Flo is a good option if you fancy an indulgent hot chocolate and a cookie. Here you can sit inside the café or explore the outside world through the comfort of your own igloo pod complete with heater!
