Mountain Heaven offer 4 stand-alone chalets in the high altitude La Plagne village of 1800. This is an excellent location at the heart of the ski area, with superb access to the whole of Paradiski. La Plagne 1800 is situated amongst the pine trees in its own self-contained village with a good selection of local restaurants, bars, equipment hire shop and a small supermarket. Access to the ski schools and amenities in Plagne Centre is also very easy using the free shuttle buses.
In La Plagne 1800 we have 4 catered chalets - Chalet Soleil that sleeps between 10 to 12 guests, Chalet Lupins which sleeps 8 - 10 guests, Chalet Zibeleine that sleeps 8 guests and brand new for the 2014/2015 season is Boule de Neige with 7 bedrooms sleeping 14 people. These chalets are all in prime positions being in very close proximity to the slopes or the ski bus stop.
There is a chairlift that is only seconds away from Chalet Soleil and Boule de Neige and this takes you towards La Plagne Centre and the Vanoise express. Directly opposite Chalet Lupins the chairlift takes you towards Aime 2000 and then onto the whole of the Paradiski area
Skiing in La Plagne
Paradiksi is the combination of La Plagne and Les Arcs and is well known for its snow sure and extensive ski area. 425km of piste linked by the impressive Vanoise Express cable car, are on offer. It’s a beginner’s and intermediate skier’s heaven with miles of wide gentle cruising blues, advanced skiers will enjoy great runs on the Bellecote glacier and the challenging blacks beyond.
There are a couple of bars in 1800, but the most popular is La Mine, with its mining heritage very much in evidence in the décor. For a wider selection of bars and après ski, Plagne Centre is a short free bus ride away with Scotty’s, The Mouth and Igloo being the most popular.
For the chalet host’s night off there are a number of good restaurants – Guests have rated Mamma Mia's and Le Chaperon Rouge as excellent and really good value. In addition Loup Garou and Loup Blanc are highly recommended.
