Belle-Plagne (La Plagne) Information
La Plagne can be found in the Savoie region of France, in the Northern French Alps, on the edge of the Vanoise National Park. It forms part of the massive Paradiski ski area which as well as La Plagne includes Les Arcs. Les Arcs and its ski areas can be accessed via the Vanoise Express cable car which whisks skiers across the valley in 4 minutes. The double decker cable car has, in addition to the 360° panorama, a 3 dimensional outlook courtesy of a transparent glass panel inserted into the floor of the lower level of the 2 cabins.
The overall ski resort of La Plagne consists of six purpose-built high-altitude ski-in/ski-out villages. These include: Plagne Soleil & Plagne Village (2050m), Belle Plagne (2050m), Aime la Plagne (2100m), Plagne Centre (1970m), Plagne Bellecôte (1930m) and Plagne 1800 (1800m) - all superbly linked by pistes and a free bus service.
Apart from the fantastic skiing and snowboarding, stretching to the Paradiski ski domain (3 resorts: La Plagne, Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry), with nearly 100 restaurants to be found throughout the different villages of La Plagne, you can be sure of a wide choice of dining options. La Plagne overall is a very active ski resort, with a huge variety of exciting winter activities to try.
The Belle Plagne resort is the newest and most attractive in La Plagne, and combines the advantages of ski-in/ski-out, with attractive architecture featuring local wood, lauze (flagstone) and other stone materials. This La Plagne ski resort also benefits from parking that's completely underground. Belle Plagne is home to the biggest snow park in La Plagne and has immediate access to the pistes.
