Plagne 1800 (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 ArcsLes 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.

As you take the road from Bourg St Maurice, the first resort you come to is Plagne 1800 (so a good one if you don't want to go too far in the mountains and have a shorter transfer). Next is Plagne Bellecote at 1930m. Above Plagne Bellecote is Belle Plagne. Then above Plagne 1800 is Plagne Centre, the main resort in the area. From here, you can continue on to the right to Aime la Plagne or to the left to Plagne Villages and Plagne Soleil. Three further villages are also connected to the ski area - Montchavin - Les Coches is accessed from Landry further down the valley and lie below the Vanoise Express cable car that takes you to Les Arcs ski area. On the other side further up the valley and below Plagne Aime 2000 is the village of Montalbert. And finally, Champagny lies on the other side of the mountain altogether and has its own ski area as well being linked to the wider La Plagne territory.

Plagne 1800 is a pretty village with chocolate-box buildings and a relaxed atmosphere, away from the more lively La Plagne villages further up the mountain. In fact, Plagne 1800 is probably better suited to those wishing to reside somewhere a little more scenic and calm after an exciting day on the slopes of La Plagne and Paradiski. It's family friendly as well.

The nightlife is limited in Plagne 1800 but the free resort shuttle bus easily and conveniently takes you to and from the other La Plagne villages until gone midnight. Even during the day, we would recommend that you take a few trips to explore the other surrounding villages of La Plagne, as they are all slightly different and have so much to offer. The main village with the most shops, services, bars and restaurants is Plagne Centre.
