The construction of La Plagne (Eng.: Alpine Meadows) as a ski region first began in 1960, between the Valley Isere and the 3,400 high Dome de Bellecote. Just one year later, the first lifts began working and in the course of the year the artificial villages were created around Plagne Centre. Later the designers rather wanted to create a cosy atmosphere and turned towards the chalet style to create their buildings, and so besides the large concrete living blocks, La Plange also offers quaint apartment complexes now. Today there are various stations, each with a different appearance. This is best observed in the evening in the cosy restaurants, as they begin to serve the local savoury dishes, and in La Plagne Centre where the party scene comes into swing. The ten stations are connected throughout the day until 1:00 am through a complimentary shuttle bus, and occasionally with gondolas.
Remember if you don't find quite what you are looking for you can always give us a call. We are ready to help you find your perfect alpine holiday. Or perhaps you might like to consider an alternative destination? For example have you considered Sestriere in Italy? - If you choose to stay in one of our Sestriere chalets, you can look forward to Europe’s first purpose built resort, which was designed and built in the 1930’s and hosted the 2006 winter Olympics. With high altitude west facing slopes, Sestriere was built for snow. Or perhaps as a possible alternative suggestion how about Kuusamo (Ruka) in Finland? - When hiring a chalet in Ruka you will enjoy an upbeat resort only 50 miles from the arctic circle, with a ski area comprising a mixture of open and forest terrain, in a region known for good snow.
