Montalbert is a quiet satellite town off the village of La Plagne in the vast wintersports area known as Paradiski.
La Plagne is known for offering some of the best skiing in Europe, so a holiday rental in the pretty town of Montalbert means you can ski right out the door. Now linked with Les Arcs, the area is ideal for downhill skiers and snowboarders with over 400km of trails and something for every skill level. The area also offers cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and snow shoeing. Montalbert has its own ski school and is very family-friendly. In the evenings the area has plenty of restaurants and there is a nightclub which is open until late. Mulled wine evenings and other social events are organized. Summer activities include hiking, mountain biking, climbing, paragliding and spotting wildlife in the alpine meadows.
Other world class resorts such as Meribel, Chamonix and Val d’Isere are within easy reach for those wanting a variety of ski options or to join in the neighbouring après-ski events. Aime is worth a visit to see the Basilica St-Martin and the Tower of Montmayeur. The beautiful city of Chambery is well known as a centre of art and history. It has an Old Town filled with historic buildings in the shadow of the Castle of the Dukes of Savoie. Visit one of the five museums such as the Musee Savoisien or the Eureka Gallery, just a short drive from your Montalbert holiday rental.
