The well designed resort of La Plagne comprises some ten villages, each with its own character and infrastructure and we feature accommodation in the best five. Belle Plagne is the most scenic with easy access to the gondola, whilst Plagne Soleil and Plagne Villages are ideally situated in a sunny bowl and offer easy ski in/ski out accommodation. Plagne Centre provides quick and easy access to the slopes and is the focal point for shops and après ski. One of the best things about La Plagne is how well connected these villages are, allowing you to explore all of the resort during your stay. Not only that but La Plagne also offers opportunities to try other exciting winter activities including husky sleighs, snow shoeing, skidooing and cross country skiing. 

Skiing and snowboarding in La Plagne

La Plagne is part of the Paradiski ski area, which is one of the biggest ski areas in Europe and the second biggest in the world. This extensive ski area is well connected with a glacier and plenty of tree lined runs. Over 70% of the slopes in the paradiski area are above 2000 metres so you'll get plenty of opportunities to ski or board fresh powder. La Plagne is a great resort for beginners and families with 70 blue runs to practise on and really build your confidence. Intermediate and advanced riders are also catered for and you'll find a great selection of red slopes and a handful of blacks, with opportunities to reach the highest part of the resort via the Bellete gondola, up the glacier to 3,417 metres. If you'd like to expand your playground, the impressive Vanoise Express cable car provides easy access to a further 225km of pistes over in Les Arcs so you'll have plenty of runs to explore and to keep you entertained during your stay. 

Where to stay in La Plagne

We offer an extensive range of hotels and residences across the five La Plagne villages. No matter which village catches your eye first, all our accommodation is located within a short walk of the ski lifts and ski area so if you're hoping to hit the slopes first thing that won't be a problem. They are also all located close to La Plagne centre where you'll find a range of shops, restaurants and bars, so you'll be right in the middle of all the action. The main majority of our residences and hotels have spa and wellness facilities included with your stay so there'll be opportunities for you to relax and unwind, for example Residence W2050 has fantastic spa facilities including swimming pool, sauna and fitness room. However, if you're not too worried about this part of your winter holiday, we do have properties that don't have this included like the Constellations Apartments. 

Bars and restaurants in La Plagne

Within the La Plagne villages, you'll find a variety of restaurants and cafes, with a lot of places selling Savoyard specialities like fondue and tartiflette. There are also opportunities for gastronomic experiences with the 4 star Hotel Carlina in Belle-Plagne serving an à la carte menu that is beautifully prepared by a French chef.

If you'd like to try traditional, hearty mountain food, you'll find a selection of restaurants that are located higher up the mountain - perfect for a lunch stop on a ski day. Although these restaurants tend to be more expensive than the restaurants found in the village, the food is well worth trying and usually involves French cuisine with some fantastic views. 

La Plagne isn't the liveliest out of the French winter resorts but it still offers some great places to eat and drink in the evenings. La Plagne centre is the busiest village if you're looking for après ski scene, with multiple venues open till late. 'The Mouth' is a new bar in La Plagne that offers live music as well as a happy hour until 10pm and is open till 2am - it even has a big-screen that shows live sports. You'll also find an 'Igloo bar' which is made of a faux-ice interior and hosts DJ nights.
