This is a well equipped little apartment in the picturesque ski resort of Champagny en Vanoise, La Plagne - ideally located just 400m to lifts and pistes. It has fantastic facilities with an indoor swimming pool, hot tub, and sauna. A cosy living/dining room opens out through picture windows onto a sunny south facing deck with picnic table. The apartment is furnished and decorated in the local Savoyard style with a double bedroom, a bunk bedroom and a newly added additional bedroom/alcove. There is a separate games room with pool table and table tennis and a boot room/drying room area, although most people leave their eqpt in the ski hire shop at the foot of the lift, so they can walk home in normal shoes and stop in bars, cafes and shop en route if they like.
Champagny en Vanoise is a beautiful 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 & Le Code Bar are the main focal points for drinking and dancing with live bands and D.J.'s.
Skiing & Boarding in 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 & Paradiski: 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'.
