Accommodation in Plagne du Soleil and Plagne Village Overview
La Plagne is located in the Paradiski ski area which is one of the largest ski areas in the world. The Paradiski ski area is located within the Tarentaise Valley in France; an incredibly expansive region with a large concentration of recognised ski areas including the Espace Killy and Les Trois Vallees (The Three Valleys). With 264 pistes spread out across up to 425 km of ski terrain, the Paradiski area offers a seemingly endless skiing playground suited to all ski ability levels. More than 70% of its slopes are above an altitude of 2000 metres, thereby almost guaranteeing excellent skiing conditions. As you would be able to tell from just these few details, the Paradiski offers some of the best skiing conditions in France and as such, has a fairly good pull for skiers worldwide. With the area being so vast, it’s no surprise that there is a large number of accommodation choices across the area. With accommodation making the majority of your travel budget, we’re certain that you would want to select the very best hotel, chalet or apartment to suit your needs and requirements over your visit to La Plagne. We are here to help you with that by providing a few accommodation options as well as providing some insight on the area in general that may aid your decision-making process.
Purpose-built as a ski resort in the expansive Paradiski area, La Plagne counts as one of Europe’s most visited ski resorts year per annum. It is a large resort, split up across 11 different villages, each of which has its own unique personality and appeal. While one village might appeal to party seekers with a thirst for a vibrant apres ski, another is better suited to families. The 11 villages are also located at different altitudes with the main resort of La Plagne Valle sitting at 700 metres altitude. Sitting higher up from La Plagne (and accessible by shuttle bus) at an altitude of 2050 metres, are Plagne du Soleil and Plagne Villages. Both villages are very family-friendly with a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Located just across from each other, there is a wide range of accommodation here to choose from. Based on the size of your travel party and how you plan on spending time together, you can opt between, chalets, hotels, or apartments. With both Plagne du Soleil and Plagne Villages located higher than the La Plagne village and centre and are more or less perched on the slopes, there are a few more piste-side lodges which are located just next to pistes and make for easy doorstep skiing. The resort centres are also fully pedestrian and car-free making it so much easier to move around the village and access the local amenities such as the ski schools, shops, restaurants and bars. There is also a free shuttle service across the villages which makes it very convenient to access other villages.
Catered Chalets La Plagne
Chalets are the quintessential ski holiday accommodation choice. They fit in perfectly with the idyllic ski holiday image that we all often picture in our minds; the chocolate-box Alpine-style house with the snowy mountain range for a backdrop. In reality, however, they offer an amazing experience altogether. On a cold snowy night in the Alps, nothing beats being able to ball up on a cosy sofa next to a large crackling fireplace. These are some of the simple yet memorable experiences that chalets allow you to have. Chalets are also perfect for groups. Whether you are travelling in a small, medium or large group, you can be certain to find a chalet that matches your travelling group number and they range from budget options to luxury chalets depending on your taste and requirements. You can opt for large chalets with huge massive interiors, balconies and even spas and hammams of smaller budget chalets with the standard requirements. Chalets are perfect for groups who like to have exclusive space for the travelling group. With Chalets, you can create a home-away-from-home atmosphere with the flexibility of having your own communal space and also being able to make your own meals as most chalets are self-catered chalets. Catering services can be arranged nonetheless as there are private chefs who can take care of the cooking and preparation of meals if you wanted to spend more time on the slopes; this option is ideal for guests who would like to have a stress free ski holiday and are happy to have as much responsibility taken care of as possible. With a wide range of chalets available at Plage du Soleil and Plagne Village, do not hesitate to contact us for chalet recommendations as we partner with a host of well-recognised chalet operators. We are always available to provide you with further details on the best self-catered and catered chalet La Plagne has to offer.

Ski Hotels In Plagne du Soleil and Plagne Villages
There is a good selection of hotels to choose from across the different villages and resort areas in La Plagne. The hotels in Plagne du Soleil and Plagne Village are warm, family-friendly establishments. Great for small travelling groups, the advantage of hotel accommodations is the ability to book short stays. Chalets and apartments often have a minimum stay of 5 or 6 days at once and it is very rare to find either of these accommodation establishments offering weekend getaway deals and similar offers. Hotels, on the other hand, are perfect for short stays and romantic weekend escapes. Visit with your significant other for 2 days of skiing, spa sessions and delicious meals from the top-rated restaurants in La Plagne; a great way to take a much needed short vacation and recharge. Hotels also give guests the freedom of not having to worry about certain responsibilities; cooking, for example. Meals are taken care of already so there is a lot more time to spend either on the slopes or taking the children out for non-ski activities. Additional services available in hotels may include highly-rated chefs and restaurants, spa and wellness facilities on-site and in some cases, children play areas.
There are also apart-hotels available in Plagne du Soleil. Apart-hotels, as the name may imply, function very similar to apartment lets, but are run as a hotel. They are very well suited to small travelling groups, especially families with young children. There are quite a few options to choose from across the ski area. Feel free to give us a call to explore other options.
