Getting to Plagne Villages
Le Dou du Praz, a lovely spot all year round
If you love wide open spaces, you should go to the Dou du Praz. This sunny plateau between Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages and Plagne Bellecôte offers a magnificent panorama. The views of the lovely Tarentaise valley and the Saint Jacques are quite breathtaking. It’s a wonderful spot year-round, with its walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing itineraries. There are picnic tables where you can enjoy the magnificent landscape. In winter, it’s the ideal place to go dog sledding. In summer, food lovers really must visit the dairy where you can buy cheese made on site. If you look to the side of the chalet where they sell the cheese, you might see the cheese maker at work, leaning over the huge cauldron. The milk from the Tarine and Abondance cows that spend the summer in La Plagne’s pastures is made into Beaufort d’alpage cheese here, as well as butter and cream, and faisselle and serac cheese, to be enjoyed without limits!

A model resort village
Plagne Villages first opened in 1972. The site inaugurated a new type of urban planning: the resort village built on an untouched site. The 4-storey buildings have gable roofs and wood cladding and follow the relief, so they are on different levels. The winding line of the buildings is determined by the geological constraints. It is an ideal site for families.
