The Rhone/French Alps region
Plagne Montalbert is situated in the Savoie Region of France forming a part of the larger Rhône-Alps Region. As you would expect the region is mountainous with spectacularly majestic mountain ranges or massifs. In the winter the higher reaches are transformed into a white wonderland. With many snow-sure resorts to chose from. Montalbert as part of the Paridiski area has a long winter ski season spanning approx seventeen weeks. Cold winters give way to hot summers and provide an opportunity to explore this historic region. The world renowned Beaufort cheese with its winter and summer varieties is produced locally. Wine is produced locally in many locations and should be sampled during your stay. Annecy with its spectacular lake is within driving distance as is Chamonix-Mont Blanc. In the Autumn one of the most spectacular drives is from Bourg-Saint-Maurice over the little St Bernard Pass down into Italy and back through the famous Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix.
Montalbert nestles on the mountain side high above Aime in the valley below. It is primarily a winter sport and ski resort with a relatively long season from mid December to the mid/end of April. During the summer it is an ideal location for outdoor pursuit and activity holidays. Out of season the previously snow covered meadows erupt with colour and diversity from a fantastic array of alpine spring flowers. During September and October, Montalbert and the surrounding area are transformed from the lush greens of summer to the mellow yellow, gold and reds of autumn.

Montalbert is one of four village resorts which along with the six altitude resorts make up the La Plagne ski domain. The Paradiski area was formed in 2003 when La Plagne and Les Arcs were linked by the Vanoise Express, a double decker cable car which carries up to 200 skiers per car. This provides access to two glacier peaks over 3000m making it one of the largest ski domains in the world! In addition to a vast range of on and off piste skiing there are also 2 half pipes and 4 snow parks, along with 232 prepared pistes extending to 450km. Montalbert is a small friendly village offering superb tree lined runs which snake back from the upper reaches of the domain, through pine forests down to the village. It is well equipped with snow canons ensuring good snow cover to the end of the season even in the poorest winters. Montalbert has its own ECF ski school with excellent facilities for both adults and children along with a nursery for toddlers between the ages of 18 months and 6 years. Other activities include Dog Sleighs, Husky dog walks, Snowshoe Walking, Cross Country Skiing, etc.

"Great apartment in a lovely village"
The apartment is situated on the nursery slope in Montalbert which is brilliant for access to/from the mountain and is a short walk in to town. The apartment is without a doubt the best equipped apartment I have stayed in with everything you could want in the kitchen. It has a lovely homely feel and truly was a great place to come back to after a long days skiing.
The town of Montalbert is a traditional French village with some very nice savoyarde restaurants and delicatessens. It is much more reasonably priced than most other French resorts that I have frequented. The town has a relaxed and friendly vibe and I would certainly go back. Despite being a low village, the snow was good and the surrounding slopes offer good tree skiing.
Thank you for your review and kind words, our aim is to provide guests with as many home comforts as possible and to make their stay in our apartment an unforgettable experience
