La Plagne, France

Once a year round destination for snow sports enthusiasts, La Plagne like many resorts in the world struggles to open its’ glacier for summer skiing due to the effect of “global warming”. Fortunately though La Plagne has much more to offer summer visitors and is popular with bikers, hikers and climbers and for those that like to keep cool in the height of summer there are several companies willing to take you for a hurl down one of the local rivers on a raft or some other flotation device.

La Plagne spans ten separate villages, six of them being purpose built ski resorts. As a result some of the purpose built areas are home to 1960’s style apartment blocks that aren’t particularly pleasing to the eye. However, some of the newer developments are actually aesthetically quite pleasing. Having been built in the traditional savoyard style, many new chalets exuding some of that old alpine charm can be found nestling in quiet wooded areas throughout.

The full array of accommodation including hotels, chalets and apartments can be found in each of the self contained villages and each offers something in the way of restaurants and nightlife. The villages are linked to each other by lift until midnight or you have the option of using the local bus or taxi service to get about. The outlying villages of Champagny, Les Coches, Montalbert and Montchavin are however more isolated after dark.
