Beautiful converted farmhouse in La Plagne in the French Alps with stunning mountain views. Skiing, walking, mountain biking and much more. Fabulous food, a warm welcome, and huge squashy sofas await you! Traditional features include thick stone walls, beamed ceilings, and a spiral staircase, whilst the living room is light-filled and open plan.
Our 3 storey house was originally an old farmhouse. The stunning new top floor features an open plan living and dining area, with amazing views up and down the Tarentaise valley across to the distant peaks of Mont Blanc. Balconies open off 2 sides of the house from picture windows. The airy living room has huge, squashy sofas and an extensive library.
Paradiski (La Plagne + Les Arcs) has over 400kms of pistes to explore and a huge variety of runs. The skiing ranges from 1250 metres to 3400 metres, with 70% of the ski area above 2000 metres which makes it high and snow sure. Beginners start on gentle green runs through the trees (with convenient piste side restaurants for refreshment!); intermediates can get from one side the resort to the other on blue runs; and advanced skiers can test themselves on the black runs, powder fields and serious off piste (the north face of the Bellecote is locally famous for an off piste adventure).
We offer airport transfers in our minibus. Fly into Chambery (100kms), Geneva (140kms), Lyon (200kms) or Grenoble(180kms) airports. Or take the Eurostar to Bourg Saint Maurice station (20 minutes from chalet). Drive from Calais (9-10 hours).
