NOTE FOR OUR REGULAR GUESTS - WE HAVE AN EXCITING LIVING ROOM REFURBISHMENT BEING DONE NOW - SEPTEMBER 2017! Chalet Sapiniere is just 400m from the pistes and village centre. A large stylish chalet with a mixture of traditional and modern décor, rough plaster walls done in the local Champagny style are complemented by beams, archways and decorative carpentry.
It has a traditional farmhouse kitchen with brand new appliances. The spacious living and dining room has large picture windows and sliding doors onto the elevated terrace and balcony. There is a log fire in natural stone with plenty of seating for 14 people as well as a few bean bags scattered around.
During the day, sunlight streams in through the windows and patio doors giving a tremendous feeling of light and space, yet if you close the curtains and light the fire the ambiance created is warm and cosy, perfect for your winter nights.
It has amazing facilities for a self catering chalet with access to a beautiful indoor Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi and Fitness Suite. Also a large games room with table tennis and pool tables.
Champagny Village: Champagny is an authentic mountain village with a character that still reflects its ancient farming origins. Tiny paths link old farms and chalets in a village where traditional Savoie life and modern tourism mesh seamlessly together. The village has a lively atmosphere with shops, bars & restaurants within easy walking distance. At night, Le Timbale, Les Rochers & Jackie’s bar are the main focal points for drinking and dancing with live bands and D.J.'s.
Skiing & Boarding at Champagny: A cable-car whisks skiers to the Champagny ski area (2000m) in just 7 minutes which is where you’ll find the nursery slopes. Three brilliant long blue runs are great to learn on and progress to while advanced skiers can zip on to the superb off piste either side. You have a choice of two red runs to take you back to the village at the end of the day. Champagny offers direct access into La Plagne, but is less busy, so is much quieter and more pleasant, especially during peak weeks.
Skiing & Boarding at La Plagne: The whole ski area covers 210km of finely groomed pistes in one of the biggest interlinked ski areas in Europe. With over 100 blue and red runs to cruise down, most skiers and boarders can travel vast distances around the 11 villages. Some very long black runs descend the Bellecote Glacier (3250m) both on and off piste, into the pretty tree lined valley of Montchavin. There are also numerous mogul fields in the area and a board park in 'Plagne Soleil'.
