Apartment Flocon is the ground floor of a chalet in a beautiful, peaceful setting in the superb village of Champagny en Vanoise, La Plagne. It has a newly refurbished and well equipped kitchen, with full sized oven, large fridge freezer, ceramic hob and microwave. There is a lovely solid wood dining table and quality upholstered chairs with plenty of padding for long chats over dinner! The sunny living room has a sofa, comfy sprung chairs and large glazed patio doors, which span the width of the apartment, giving fantastic uninterrupted views across open meadows to the mountains of Courchevel. The patio doors open onto a sheltered terrace with picnic table, a great place to sit in the sun with a glass of wine taking in the shimmering mountain views. It is 30 seconds from the sauna and games room, which is also available to our other guests staying at Chalets Marmotte and Sapiniere.
Champagny en Vanoise: 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 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 in 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'.
