Chalet | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Apartment Glacon is a tastefully furnished, well equipped apartment in the picturesque village of Champagny en Vanoise. It has fantastic facilities for a 4-6 person apartment with full use of the stylish indoor swimming pool as well as a games room with a pool table and table tennis.
FEATURES Indoor Swimming Pool Sauna Games Room Wi-Fi
It has a cosy living room with thick curtains across large sliding doors, which are like big picture windows that open onto a sunny deck. The bed in the double bedroom is set in a decorative wooden alcove, carved in the local Savoyard style with integral spot lighting and shelving. There are two L shaped interlinked rooms in the middle of the apartment, a bright bunk bedroom which has whitewashed, wood panelled walls and a room leading off, that you could use as an additional bedroom for a baby or small child. This room has a huge end wardrobe, so it could be used as a large walk in wardrobe, a storage area, or a drying and boot room. There is also a further room directly off the living room which could be used as a cot room for a baby or as an alternative drying and boot room. Due to the different ways the bedrooms can be used, this is a very versatile apartment suitable for different size families or small groups of friends.
You can store your equipment in the ski hire shop at the foot of the lift, which is only a short walk from the apartment. Not having to walk far in your clumpy ski boots at the end of the day is a real bonus. The shops bars and restaurants are also only a short stroll, so following your arrival at the apartment you will not need a vehicle in the resort again until the day you leave.
This self catering apartment can be booked on its own or can be booked as extra accommodation for Chalets Marmotte and Sapiniere if your group outgrows either of those two chalets.

The Rhone/French Alps region
The Paradiski ski area covers 18 resorts with 425km of endless, finely groomed pistes catering for all abilities in one of the biggest interlinked ski areas in Europe. There are 132 blue pistes which means that even novice skiers and boarders can travel vast distances around the whole area. That said, Champagny and La Plagne have the majority of the blue runs as well as a huge variety of skiing in general so for many people there is no real need to go across to Les Arcs. However, for good skiers who wish to venture even further afield Les Arcs is not too far away and worth at least one day trip from Champagny.
Resort Facts: 425km pistes
18 interlinked villages & resorts
3 Snow Parks - 1 in Champagny, 1 in La Plagne & 1 in Les Arcs
350 snow canons
Longest slope 15kms
Classic Runs - North face of Bellecôte Glacier in La Plagne & Aiguille Rouge in Les Arcs
3 Glaciers - Bellecôte, Chiaupe, Varet
2 peaks at over 3000m Aiguille Rouge, Bellecôte
A short drive out of the village going further into the mountains brings you up to the small hamlet of Champagny L'Haut at the gateway to the Vanoise National Park. It is usually quite a bit colder here but very snowy and beautiful. There is a professionally run ice climbing tower, the only one of its kind in Europe, organised snow shoe walks and numerous ski de fond trails, it is also a fantastic place to take your kids sledging.
Champagny is an authentic mountain village with a character that still reflects its early farming origins. A beautiful picturesque resort with lively après ski, where traditional Savoie life and modern tourism mesh seamlessly together. Champagny is a refreshingly non-commercialized part of the huge interlinked ski area that includes Champagny, La Plagne & Les Arcs - over 420km of pistes aptly known as Paradiski.
Champagny is an excellent ski area in its own right as well as being part of the huge ski area now known as Paradiski. It has a modern cable car that whisks skiers to over 2000m in just 8 minutes. Here, there are two nursery slopes and a restaurant so you can watch your kids in ski school whilst you grab a coffee or a bite to eat.
Champagny is very conveniently located to take advantage of the huge interlinked Paradiski area, just 2 lifts or approximately 20 minutes from the heart of La Plagne. The lift companies have assured the link to La Plagne is always possible right through the season by positioning snow canons on the crucial linking runs, Les Borseliers and Le Bozelet.
There is a modern 6 man chair lift that takes you to three brilliant blue runs in the middle of the resort; La Rossa, Le Sérac and Les Crépines. These are perfect for beginners to progress onto as they are long and wide, so you get a nice long ski before you have to get on the lift again. Alongside these runs there is a board park and plenty of easy off piste, as well as the steeper more difficult 'Dentiste' off piste run which is great in fresh powder.
In the village square, there are a variety of Cafes, Pizzerias and Crêperies where you can enjoy the sunshine on the centre terrace by the mountain stream, especially warm later in the season.'La Timbale' iswhere you'll find DJ's, live bands every Wednesday and plenty of dancing going on well into the night. It also has a sunny terrace for après ski beers, a pool table and table football.
