The farmhouse sits on the top edge of Montvilliers (1100m), a tiny unspoilt hamlet tucked away on the mountainside under the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (one of the La Plagne ski villages and part of Paradiski). Montalbert’s gondola is a quick 5 minute drive in our private chalet shuttle (for catered guests only). You can also ski back along off-piste forest tracks.
Plagne Montalbert has picturesque tree-lined slopes, challenging blacks and reds, wide blue runs and some good off-piste. It’s an ideal location for mixed ability and family groups. You can also ski across to the centre of La Plagne where you’ll be spoilt for choice in terms of slopes and restaurants. There’s also a board park, x2 sledge parks and a glacier. If that’s not enough, you can take the Vanoise Express and ski all the way over to Les Arcs too on the other side of Paradiski.
Our chalet drop point is close to Les Etoiles du Sport, our ski hire partner in Plagne Montalbert. They’ll give you a discount if you book on-line (ask us for the promotional codes), and they have ski and boot storage facilities you can rent so you don’t have to carry your gear around when you finish. For ski lessons, ESF Montalbert run group and private lessons in French and English, or you can try Lime Snowsports, an English ski school.
