- Hotel Terra Nova, Plagne Centre description
The Terra Nova has a superb location in Plagne Centre - right at the foot of the 225km of pistes so you can jump straight on the chairlift in the morning and ski back to the door at the end of the day. Rest assured, you can expect a friendly, high quality service from the hotel staff. The Terra Nova offers an excellent range of rustic, comfortable rooms making it a good family option, with both quad and interconnecting rooms available. And all face either the slope or the valley, so it doesn’t matter where you are in the hotel, you’ll wake up every day to marvellous views.
The fabulous location also means you’re only a stone’s throw away from all the shops, restaurants and bars of the resort, so it’s ideal for families who don’t want to trek too far for some of the friendly amenities. When you’re not out exploring, you could spend an hour or so in the spa getting a treatment or simply relaxing in the sauna – the choice is yours.
All your meals are served in the hotel's panoramic restaurant, which has fantastic views of the slopes. You’ll get to pick from a plethora of international cuisines as well as more local dishes. And what's more, to go with your delicious dinners, you'll get unlimited free wine for the duration of your meal - what more could you want?
You’ll also have complimentary access to the excellent hotel-run kids’ club. It runs for six days and one evening per week, all season for kids aged 3-5 years, and during French school holidays for kids aged 6-17 years. They can enjoy a range of activities under the supervision of qualified, English-speaking professionals. Each week has a different theme, so your kids could be rehearsing for a sci-fi fantasy show or painting pictures of pretty plants. For the older ones, there are sports tournaments, creative workshops and even discos. Remember to book in advance though, as spaces get snapped up pretty quickly.
No admittance to the sauna and fitness room for children under 15 years.
The dress code for evening meals is smart/casual.
Check-in for this hotel is at 5pm on the day of arrival - provisions will be made for guests' luggage before this time. A deposit payable by card needs to be provided at check-in.
Please bring a padlock for your ski locker.
