Location description from owner

The Rhône-Alpes region

Who can fail to be moved when viewing the majesty of the Alps? Summer or winter the scenery inspires you and takes your breath away. From Les Coches you can see Mont Blanc. At 4810m it is the highest mountain in Western Europe.In winter the area is renown for skiing and snowboarding. In the summer the mountains are covered with grass and flowers. The blueberries (myrtilles) grow wild beneath the trees on the mountain side and you can find groups of French families collecting them.In the summer the cultural activities also come to the fore with concerts and art exhibitions. The baroque churches of the area and castles built in improbable places, plus the mountain passes are worth a visit.

Les Coches

Les Coches is in the Paradiski area, boasting 425km of ski runs, 175 ski lifts and skiing up to 3250m. The ski area combines runs in Les Arcs and La Plagne linked by the Vanoise Express, a stunning cable car spanning 1800m, 380m above the valley. Les Coches is the closest resort to the Vanoise Express and so is ideal for skiers who want to make the most of the area. The ski area is open from mid December to the end of April and caters for snow boarders, alpine skiers, cross country skiers, snow shoe walkers - you name it, they provide it!Montchavin-Les Coches is a family-friendly resort. Montchavin at 1250m is the original farming village and retains its traditional charm. Les Coches, at 1450m, was developed in the 1980s as a purpose-built holiday village. It too has a friendly village feel, with a traffic-free centre and low rise apartment buildings clad in wood and stone. If you think purpose-built resorts are cold and impersonal, with no trees and no character then come to Les Coches to enjoy the difference. Les Coches has a skating rink at the top of the resort, easily accessible using the free bubble lift.So what can you do apart from snow sports in the winter? The tourist office and ski schools offer guided walks and trips to places of local interest such as cheese makers or the baroque churches of the area. The walk from Les Coches to Montchavin only takes 15 minutes and you can get the free shuttle bus back or walk back in 45 minutes - quicker if you are young and fit! Montchavin has a cinema and the shuttle bus does its last run back to Les Coches after the cinema turns out.In the summer mountain bikes can be hired, walking trails are well marked, tennis, golf, white water rafting and other activities can all be found. The mountain villages and churches are well worth a look, or take a drive through one of the mountain passes that are closed in the winter.The village of Aime is worth a visit summer or winter. The village of Montchavin is building a new outdoor swimming pool which is due to open in 2011. During the summer season you can hire mountain bikes and some of the lifts are open to enable walkers and bikers to reach the higher altitude trails. The resort is open from the beginning of July to the beginning of September for the summer season. In the valley, at Landry, you can find a water sports centre offering activies for a range of abilities, from canoeing to white water rafting. There is also a cycle path that runs beside the river from Bourg-St-Maurice to Bellentre and Aime.

“Un studio idéalement placé pour bien en profiter!”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2015

Un studio encore très simple en décoration (manque encore un peu de chaleur) mais bien équipé, idéalement placé au cœur des Coches. Un accueil convivial et un suivi de qualité tant de la part de la propriétaire que des personnes sur place. Le petit kit d'accueil est d'ailleurs bien vu et surtout très appréciable. Ce studio convient aux skieurs qui comptent profiter un maximum des pistes et ne rentrent que pour manger et dormir (ce qui était notre cas). Clin d'œil sympa des propriétaires qui nous racontent leur histoire au fil des mois et des agencements de l'appartement. A compléter! Nous envisageons d'y revenir!

“Brilliant”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2015

Great location, nice and clean, great value for money. Great for small children as well. Walking distance to all shops and ski lifts, friendly people all around Highly recommended. Definitely we will be visiting again..

Thank you. So glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope we'll be able to welcome you again.

“An excellent base for skiing Paradiski”

Reviewed 9 Jan 2014

Les Coches is a great place to stay if you wish to take advantage of the Paradiski ski area. Easy access to La Plagne and Les Arc. The apartment was completely adequate for our needs (two adults and two teenagers) and very convenient for the shops, restaurants and ski lifts. The owner provided some little extras that were appreciated such as tea bags, coffee, a bottle of wine, milk, washing up/cleaning equipment and things you normally forget such as salt, pepper and sugar! Parking was close by for loading and unloading if you have driven. Wi-Fi was a bonus too. The apartment owner was very helpful and great communication. We recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to ski and explore the Paradiski area, it is a much cheaper option than staying in La Plagne or Les Arc and has a relaxed atmosphere would suit families with small children. Our daughter used the Evolution 2 ski school for beginner snowboard lessons which she enjoyed. They can be contacted in the Ski Republic hire shop a few metres from the apartment. We would definitely use the apartment again and recommend to our friends.

“Much more then I was expecting”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

It was our first visit in French Alps. I had a lot of concerns. But the owner of the apartment for very helpful. She has sent me all tips and advices what to take. I was traveling with husband and 2,5 years old daughter. The location of the apartment is just excellent. Just in the centre of Les Coches. The deco of the apartment is a bit old but is very clean and functional. I would definitelly recommend it to everyone. We went there by car so we could take what ever we needed with us (ex food). In the resort you can buy almost everything but it's a bit expensive.

“This has been one of our best holiday experiences ever.”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2012

I rate the studio "very good". Not that it is the big luxury, more that it fits the description and the price, nothing is missing, the owner is very reliable og helpful, the area is fantastic and everything has been easy.

“Good basic accomodation”

Reviewed 21 Feb 2012

Hi, We spent a great week skiing at Les coches this half term. The apartment, although quite basic, is a really good space for a family of avid skiers! The room divider was great for us, as our daughter could have her own "room". The location of the apartment was perfect, a minute to the village centre, and a few minutes to the piste! The owner was really helpful, and gave us loads of information before we arrived. I would be happy to revisit this apartment and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
