We had a great week in La Plagne. The chalet was pretty good, a couple of rooms turned out to have shared facilities which we hadn’t spotted when we booked, but having looked a second time round it was in the brochure. It was a bit annoying having to share a bathroom but all in all everyone had a good time. Th... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Almach description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Sleeps: 13 Guests

With stunning panoramic views from its wrap around terrace and close proximity to the shops and slopes of Plagne 1800, Chalet Almach is a firm favourite.

Guests can enjoy stunning views of the Tarentaise valley from the large open-plan living room and terrace, which runs the entire length of the chalet. Bedrooms are comfortably furnished, most of which are en suite and feature panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. The superb location, 10 minutes' walk from the lifts, slopes and shops of Plagne 1800 makes the Chalet Almach an ideal base for easy access to the extensive ski area of the vast Paradiski. For your extra convenience a minibus shuttle service is offered in the mornings up to the lifts in Plagne Centre so you really can be the first on the slopes if you want to. After dinner, a 10 minute walk will take you to all the après-ski and nightlife of Plagne 1800 and Plagne Centre.

In the Savoie region of the French Alps, La Plagne was established in the early sixties and now consists of 11 villages: 7 purpose built and 4 traditional. The aptly named Plagne Centre at the heart of the resort is the main hub of shops, restaurants and après ski. Just underneath lies Plagne 1800, a cluster of chalets spread across a steep hillside. Higher up are Aime-la-Plagne, Plagne-Soleil and Plagne-Villages, all accessible via chairlifts from Plagne Centre. Plagne Bellecote rests over a low ridge to th...
There are plenty of nursery slopes with access to free beginner lifts for those new to skiing. This is complimented by a wide choice of different ski schools ready to cater to your particular needs. The slopes around the Belle Plagne area are particularly suitable for beginners, with the blue run linking Les Bauches to Montchavin, providing a manageable step up in difficulty from the nursery slopes. For those who class themselves as intermediate standard skiers this really is paradise. 77% of the runs are gra...
This is an exceptional resort for unique après ski opportunities. Spend the night in the Black Sheep Igloos, facing Mont Blanc, complete with a fondue meal and a morning wakeup call with breakfast. If this isn’t your idea of fun then ice climbing in Champagny and husky sledding are also on offer. One experience not to be missed is the bobsleigh track, used for Olympic training. There are a variety of ways you can choose to go down it, but they are all guaranteed to give you a thrill as you will hurtle down at ...

"Thoroughly recommend it. Had a fantastic time."

Mrs Walley, Hythe
5/ out of 5
We had a fantastic time here and I would thoroughly recommend it! The staff were brilliant with our children, they did a separate meal for the kids at 5:30 and in the daytime, they made the kids beds up putting their pyjamas in funny shapes and toys in funny places which they loved when they got back, it was a really nice touch and things like that that made the stay so great. There was a good mix of food each evening with child-friendly dishes and meals like casserole. The position of the chalet is really good, with the bus stop opposite you can pile onto the bus and it’s about 5 minutes to the slope. You could walk, but because we had children we went for the bus. We stayed in the upstairs bit of the chalet with our 2 kids and had the area to ourselves, I’d definitely recommend families to book this part of the chalet if you can.

"All in all pretty good"

We had a great week in La Plagne. The chalet was pretty good, a couple of rooms turned out to have shared facilities which we hadn’t spotted when we booked, but having looked a second time round it was in the brochure. It was a bit annoying having to share a bathroom but all in all everyone had a good time. The staff were pretty good and looked after us well, especially one of the hosts who was amazing. There was plenty of food and wine and we were really impressed with the standard; my girlfriend’s a vegetarian and they catered for her really well. It was a little annoying not being right on the slopes, on the map the chalet looks closer than it actually is. There is a transfer service though, and the skiing back was OK.
