Facing Mont Blanc, La Plagne Montchavin les Coches is the perfect holiday location for families, as proven by its Famille Plus Label. The site is built on two levels: the village of Montchavin at 1250m and Les Coches at 1450m. The two villages are linked in the summer and winter seasons by a free shuttle bus. Montchavin has kept the look of a Savoyard hamlet: chalets with wood and stone cladding, a working farm, a chapel, a car-free village centre… Discover the wealth of Montchavin’s heritage when you visit the farm or during a nighttime tour of the village. Les Coches and its residences are just a couple of turns from the Vanoise Express, Paradiski’s emblematic cable car. If you are in need of some relaxation, you can go to the Espace Paradisio, the site’s aqua-leisure complex.
Getting to Montchavin - Les Coches
For a family holiday
In summer, families will enjoy the fun Family Race which also exists in a winter version, the Winter Family Race. To relive the celebrations of times gone by, come and admire the locals in traditional costume during the Olden-day Wedding or the blessing of the instructors on Sainte Agathe’s fête day, the village’s patron saint.
Surrounded by forests, La Plagne Montchavin les Coches is a paradise for nature lovers. In winter, you can try dog sledding when you are sure to be impressed as the pack takes you off for an adventure worthy of the Far North. If you are more contemplative, you may prefer to slow it down for a snowshoe walk on the marked trails, with or without a guide. You can discover Plan Bois plateau when you follow Les Frasses trail towards Plagne Bellecôte, on foot or cross-country skis. In summer, there are lots of hikes to choose from. Don’t miss Pierres Blanches lake or the valley of Les Bauches with its lovely Alpine chalets on the banks of a gurgling stream.
