For our popular self catered skiing holidays we have a great selection of quality chalet apartments in one of the best villages and ski resorts in the La Plagne area, Plagne Montalbert. This s a traditional, authentic French village with rustic alpine charm, lots of restaurants and is part of one of the world's largest skiing areas. As with all of Mountain Heaven's accommodation, the ski chalets in Montalbert meet the highest standards. We have a wide variety of self-catered chalet apartments throughout Montalbert in a range of sizes, suitable for couples, families and groups.
La Plagne Montalbert is one of 10 villages that make up the La Plagne ski area. Tree-lined runs hold the snow until very late in the season and the slopes are covered by a network of snow cannons, so runs all the way home are practically guaranteed. A network of interconnecting chairlifts takes you right up to the topmost resorts.
Christmas and New Year in Montalbert is a wonderful time with torch light skiing, firework displays and parties. On Christmas Eve they have a great street festival with Father Christmas being drawn on a sleigh surrounded by all the ski instructors with flaming torches and the old church in the centre of the village has a real nativity scene which last year even featured a real baby, donkey and other animals!
The local tourist office organises plenty of free village activities such as mulled wine evenings and there is a nightclub that is open until very late.
All of our apartmnets have Free WIFI and the vast majority also have UK and French TV
We have a wide range of very high quality self-catered chalet apartments in La Plagne Montalbert spread across 3 different locations across the village.
Les Chalets de Montalbert
These are three small chalets side by side located directly on the nursery piste and in a quiet position just by the forest. The chalets are ski in/out and outside is the free button lift which is open to late afternoon. In addition on this piste they hold night skiing a couple of evenings a week and also various other events. The chalets are only about 5 minutes from the village centre and all have stunning views.
Our apartments here are located right at the base of the ski slope only 20 metres away from the ski school meeting point and the creche. The main chairlift is only 50m away and its an ideal location for those who want great views up the slopes but want to be directly in the village centre.
These apartments are located in a quiet position in the village centre and are only 150m away from the slopes and the village itself.
