A magical site

Plagne Montalbert is a village at medium altitude (1 350 metres). Created in 1980, the architecture is in traditional mountain-style with low buildings made of wood and stone and gable roofs. Most of the shops and services are grouped together in the shopping street at the bottom of the slopes. The village centre is car-free, with vehicles left in the large car parks at the village entrance. You will be able to breathe in deep and enjoy this small, welcoming site. In the forest just above the village, there are three large holiday centres.

Conviviality and sharing

The village is known for its varied entertainment programme in winter and summer. In summer, there are barbecue parties with live music, for a convivial and festive moment. We look forward to seeing you in the middle of July with your family for the Festoche des Mioches kids’ festival, where you are guaranteed surprises and a lot of laughs! In winter, why not come for the Festival de l’Humour or Zen Week. Plagne Montalbert has developed a number of new snow sports. Come and try Airboard, Snakegliss, Monogliss, Ski trikke or Yooner, for a heap of thrills and laughs! In summer, get on a Dévalkart or try a Trikke scooter, a Street luge, a Speedle Star kart or a Fuzion scooter during the “Summer Glisses Déglingos” event. The village’s lovely atmosphere drew Phil Howard, the renowned Michelin-starred chef from London, who has opened his Union Restaurant there, a small gastronomic restaurant where he combines fresh seasonal produce with local products. 25% of the dishes on the menu are vegan or vegetarian.

Randonnée du bief bovet La Plagne Montalbert

Taking a hike

In summer, a hundred or so kilometres of walking paths await you, leaving from the village of Montalbert. You are bound to enjoy the theme trails: Bief Bovet along a mountain stream in the forest, the Biodiversity trail, the Sentier des Alpagistes (Herdsmen’s trail) in Prajourdan. You enter a fantasy world on the Alpages Enchantés trail (accessible on snowshoes in winter). The sculptures along the trail were done by local artist, Nicolas Gombert, who is a several times winner of the French championship for wood carving with a chain saw. You can go hiking with a guide or even with a dog! For an original experience, try Cani-rando, hiking with a dog, who will help you in the climbs... and make the descents even more fun! On snowshoes, cross-country or touring skis, you can admire the landscape covered in a lovely white blanket, as you follow the marked paths.
Vue sur le village de Longfoy à La Plagne

Longefoy

This traditional Savoyard village is just a few kilometres from the slopes of Plagne Montalbert. The red-tiled roofs are overlooked by La Superga chapel. Built on a hill in 1853, it is a smaller version of the famous Superga sanctuary near Turin. The village includes several bed & breakfasts, a bakery and a hotel-bar-restaurant. On several occasions over the year, the locals light the village bread oven. Come and bite into some bread fresh from the oven or a crinchin, a tasty, aniseed-flavoured brioche whose recipe is a closely-guarded secret. The hamlet of Montgésin at 1500 metres is worth a visit to see its chapel. Notre Dame des Neiges houses richly painted murals and an ironwork grid dating back to 1758. A number of elements (including the altarpiece) have been restored thanks to the intervention of thirty or so volunteers.
