10 reasons to love Les Coches

Les CochesLa Plagne is a huge ski resort which offers skiers over 225km of piste and extensive off-piste opportunities. It has developed from a resort of magnificent brutalist architecture popular in the 60’s to more modern developments with a truly alpine feel.

Such a hidden gem is Les Coches.

Built around the Plan Bois chairlift this small skiing village is perfectly located for skiers wishing to ski both La Plagne and Les Arcs – the Paradiski ski area. From the village take the said chair lift (a fab high speed six) or the Lac Noir telecabine and turn left to access Les Arcs via the Vanoise Express or right for La Plagne.

Given its position linking Les Arcs and La Plagne, the village runs are well served by the latest snow canon ensuring skiing back to the resort is possible long into the season.

The village has a compact centre with ski shops, alimentations, bars and restaurants. From simple yet excellent pizza to those with such a mountain ambiance you would swear you were served by the von Trapp family. I know, I know, different country, but it’s only just over pointy mountain.

Throughout the week there is a Programme d’animation organised by the local tourist office; from free welcome drinks every Sunday at 6pm in the town square (rude not too) to human bowling. Nope, me neither. Most are free and the week’s programme of activities is available on a leaflet when you collect your vin chaud.

A free bus links Les Coches with nearby Montchavin, whilst both villages can be accessed by car within a few minutes from the N90. Free parking is available throughout the village.

Ice and Fire Ski and Snowboard Holidays have three chalets in the village.

The fabulous Flocon and Edelweiss are both super spacious, with every comfort and come complete with a top chef and chalet host to make you eat and drink delicious fare.

Chalet Campanules has a traditional feel, much loved by new and returning guests and is virtually ski in-ski out.

The best news, however, is that we currently have a snow sale on which makes our super chalets even more affordable. So, go on, come and join us!
