Make holiday rental accommodation or a chalet to rent in La Plagne, France your home away from home

La Plagne is one of the France’s largest ski and snowboarding areas. There are actually ten different villages within the La Plagne ski resort, each purpose build with a unique style, from the wonderfully traditional village of La Plagne 1800 to the modern complex of Aime La Plagne. Located high in the Alps of Savoie, France, La Plagne has both reliable snow cover and an excellent array of snow sports to enjoy from La Plagne accommodation.

Things to do in La Plagne, France

There is over 200km of pistes to explore from a La Plagne chalet to rent. The extensive lift systems link all the villages to one another and to the main skiing centres, as well as the vast Paradiski ski domain on the other side of an Alpine ridge, meaning that there really is no shortage of skiing in La Plagne! Ski holidays to La Plagne are perfect for any group, whether a family holiday, mixed ability group or group of experts looking for a challenge. Beginners are extremely well catered for, with learner slopes around each village and some very gentle runs between each village. Intermediate and expert skiers and snowboarders will be thrilled with the amount of off-piste skiing and fearsome black runs.

There is an ice rink, a large spa centre, ten-pin bowling lanes, a cinema, paragliding centres and outdoor (heated) pool and many miles of winter walking trails to enjoy.

During the summer, there is a huge amount to enjoy from La Plagne accommodation. There are many hang gliding opportunities, as well as helicopter flights, provided by the same companies offering helicopter drop-offs in winter.

A pleasant and well apportioned apartment overlooking the mountains

5 of 5
The apartment is fantastic 2 double bedrooms (these seemed larger than the usual double rooms you get in these types of apartments) and a good sized bunk room, large open entrance and comfortable lounge area with freesat english tv. The apartment is on the entrance level so no lugging luggage up and down stairs which is a real bonus, plus a ski locker available at entrance level. The only niggle, and it is just that, is I couldn’t get on with the oven microwave combination. We booked this apartment as we have stayed at Crete Cote previously, nice and quite area and easy to get to. However be prepared to put on snow chains to get up to the apartment as the road can be extremely icy, we got away with it this year with snow tyres and AWD but have previously experienced loss of traction 2/3rds of the way up sliding backwards which is not a pleasant experience. You can chose whether to ski out in the mornings along the footpath to the red run Andre Martzolf (subject to snow conditions) or catch the free shuttle bus up to Plagne 1800, Centre or Aime 2000 (if you get off the bus at Résidence Pierre et Vacances at Aime 2000 it is a 10 yard walk to the Golf blue run which is a beginners area). It is also possible for competent skiers to ski back through the trees from Plagne 1800 (access from the bottom car park) or again down the red run Andre Martzolf to No. 4 post and take the short walk down the road. We often have a hot chocolate, a Crepe and occasional lunch at Croq Neige in Plagne Centre near the lifts and at the ski school meeting point, we also had dinner at La Loup Blanc in Plagne 1800 which was very nice and La Cantine which is a very nice small pizza restaurant again in Plagne 1800. Booking in advance is advisable and both are reasonably priced. The booking process for the apartment was easy and communications with Ben and Piste Pads (local agent) have been excellent.
