The Rhone/French Alps region
A stunning mountain area providing great skiing during the winter and a wide range of adventure sports during the summer.
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.
The runs into Plagne Montalbert are either red or blue and can thus be tackled by virtually all skiers. They are tree lined too, and hold the snow well and together with the extensive network of snow cannons and the fact that the village faces North West ensures snow.
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.
There are ten restaurants in the village these 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. It was highly recommended last season by our guests and Cathy and Eric (wine connoisseurs) will give you are your children a warm welcome.
Le Fifties Legend serves burgers and pizzas (they also offer a delivery service to the apartments.
Skanapia which is a busy restaurant right at the base of the slopes and serves local food and offers a great Plat Du Jour.
