The Rhone/French Alps region
Plagne Montalbert is one of 10 villages that make up the La Plagne ski area. Tree-lined runs hold the snow until very late in the season and the slopes are covered by a network of snow cannons; so runs all the way home are practically guaranteed. A network of interconnecting chairlifts takes you right up to the topmost resorts.
The Vanoise Express is a spectacular double-decker cable car, linking La Plagne and Les Arcs. The result is Paradiski, one of the world’s biggest skiing areas.
The numbers are boggling: all told, there are no less than 242 pistes, 425km, 35 black, 66 red, 129 blue and 12 green, plus 4 snowparks and one halfpipe. They are serviced by 134 lifts, with lower slopes at 1200 metres yielding to the glaciers at 3250 metres; so skiing is assured throughout the season. Quite simply, there’s no excuse to be bored on a Mountain Heaven holiday.
For snowboarders La Plagne is also well-served, with a permanent half pipe in Plagne Bellecote, a snow park in Belle–Plagne and a snowboarding area with sound system in Montchavin/Les Coches and Champagny en Vanoise. For cross country skiers, Plagne Montalbert offers 90km of marked trails including tremendous scenic forest trails and access to several high level routes.
Unlike the ugly apartment blocks that dominate many of the ski resorts in the French Alps, Plagne Montalbert is delightfully unspoilt; a daily treat from glistening dawn to glowing sunset over the pine forests. It remains a traditional, friendly, village surrounded by stunning scenery: the Tarentaise valley to one side, Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains to the other.
Christmas and New Year in Montalbert is a wonderful time with torch light skiing, firework displays and parties. On Christmas Eve they have a great street festival with Father Christmas being drawn on a sleigh surrounded by all the ski instructors with flaming torches and the old church in the centre of the village has a real nativity scene which last year even featured a real baby, donkey and other animals!
Plagne Montalbert has all the amenities you could want in a ski resort with plenty of restaurants, great bars and a number of ski shops. There is a well stocked supermarket, a patisserie and two wonderful delicatessens where you can buy ready to cook local meals, cheese, cold meats etc.
Our range of Montalbert chalets put you within easy reach of the amenities the ski resort has to offer and with ten restaurants in the village you'll never be short of things to do. The restaurants include:
Le Trappeurs: Trappeurs is a great bar and restaurant that serves specialities from the local area such as Tartiflette together with steaks and other dishes.
La Luge which serves great pizzas.
Le Forperet which is a mountain restaurant open in the evening and offers a free mini bus service. If you wish to book this restaurant please contact them by email by clicking the link.
La Tourmante is a very lively pub /restaurant which often has live music, shows football on its large screen TV downstairs when the big matches are on and serves a variety of great value food in the upstairs restaurant.
Le Fifties Legend serves great steaks, burgers and pizzas.
Skanapia which is a busy restaurant right at the base of the slopes and serves local food and offers a great Plat Du Jour.
The local tourist office organises plenty of free village activities such as mulled wine evenings and there is a nightclub that is open until very late.
For those requiring Internet WIFI is available free in a number of bars and also the tourist office.
