La Plagne

Bellecôte centre, La Plagne La Plagne is a large ski resort in the Tarentaise Valley in the Savoie region. The ski resort is comprised of several sites: Aime la Plagne, Belle Plagne, Plagne Villages / Soleil, Plagne Bellecôte, Plagne Centre and Plagne 1800. All the sites offer doorstep skiing and are connected by free shuttle buses that circulate from 8am to midnight everyday throughout the season, meaning that holidaymakers never need to use their car to get around.

The resort, directly facing the Mont Blanc, is very large and varied, with ski slopes for all types of skier, from beginners to experts. There are slopes for everyone, with picturesque ski runs winding through pine forests, snow park jumps, glacier runs, vast off piste areas and also slopes specially designated for calm, tranquil skiing. La Plagne is at the heart of Paradiski, a vast ski area shared with the neighbouring resort, Les Arcs.

Non-skiers will also find plenty to do, especially in the evening, with dozens of bars and restaurants, bowling, several nightclubs... there is something for everyone.
