In the popular Savoie region, you will find the breathtaking French ski destination La Plagne. Set in the perfect location for snowy natural ski slopes, the whole area is surrounded by picturesque mountains as far as the eye can see. In fact, the entire valley is known as one of the most spectacular locations in Europe for skiing. The Paradiski area comprises of both La Plagne and Les Arcs, two neighbouring resorts forming a single ideal destination for ski holidays in France.
One of your best options if you’re considering staying here is to opt for luxury catered ski chalets, and La Plagne offers some of the best you’ll find. We’ve managed to locate some real hidden gems that are a little more traditional and different compared to the newer, tourist-focused accommodation you’ll find across most ski resorts. For example, Chalet Genepy is one of a handful of large Catered Ski Chalets which is large enough to accommodate up to 13 people. It’s right next to the ski lift which takes you right up to the ideal location for practising your skills, allowing you to ski all the way back down to your accommodation! This is the kind of thing we would recommend looking for to get the most out of your holiday in the region.
When it comes to ski facilities, La Plagne is perfectly suited to anyone with a taste for adventure as well as an appreciation of the incredible scenery around them. There are 100 square kilometres of La Plagne’s dedicated skiing area, including over 130 different slopes ranging from beginner to expert difficulty. Of course, if you’ve never attempted the sport before or you simply need to brush up on your skills, there will always be experts on hand to train and assist you. After originally being conceived as a project to create and protect jobs in the local area in the early 1960s, this large region is now considered one of the premier destinations in France for people interested in skiing, and we would highly recommend a visit.
