Belle Plagne vond ik het leukste dorp in La Plagne. Leuke opzet. In Bellecote zit je centraler, maar foeilelijke flats daar. La Plagne ansich is een gezellig plaatsje, maar je moet er echt heen gaan voor het skien, het is werkelijk een fantastisch skigebied. Het skien is nog beter geworden sinds de Vanoise expres in gebruik genomen is. Wat apres-ski betreft stelt het erg weinig voor, dus als je daarvoor komt kun je beter naar Oostenrijk gaan. Misschien komt het ook wel door de schrikbarend hoge prijzen halve liter bier 6,00 euro. Ook als je uit eten wil moet je diep in de buidel tasten, simpel kaas fonduetje ben je met zijn tweeen zo 60 a 70 euro kwijt.

Skiing was absolutely fabulous, predominately blues but some more akin to easy reds. A huge armada of piste bashers ensured that the piste were immaculate each morning. Lift system absolutely superb no queuing at all and more than enough terrain for a week with just the La Plagne lift pass. The runs down into Champagny were sublime, quiet and best of all hardly a boarder to be seen. Disappointed however with the village itself, lacked atmosphere. Ate out most nights, restaurants OK but necessary to book to ensure a seat. Otherwise thoroughly recommend it

Het is een van de grootste of misschien wel dé grootste van heel Frankrijk. Dit mega-skigebied, dat wel 325 kilometer piste telt is uitstekend voor zowel beginners als gevordenen, jong en oud, groot en klein, snowboarders en skiërs, etc. Het is ook een echt skidorpje, met een piste aan het appartement. Alleen jammer van de kleine appartementen, maar dat was het enige, want wij hebben een geweldige vakantie gehad!

Went here on 3rd to 10th March 2007. Stayed in La Licorne in Belle Plange. Very basic room with bunk bed and two single beds with pull out bed under one of them. There was a bit of an uphill walk to hotel through underground car park, which was a little difficult with all your gear. Still, you were able to ski from hotel though down to Belle Plange lifts and Bellecote which was great. Spar very near so bonus. Eating out was Ok, but our favourites were Matafan and K2. My girlfriend did ski school with Oxegyn at Le Plange centre. She was picked up every morning by mini bus which was always on time. She had only skied once before and by the second day the ski school had the group on blue runs.

Have just come back from a week in La Plagne 1800. I have to be honest we only went there because of a really good late deal that was on offer and the resort had not previously been somewhere we would have considered going before. I am really glad we did. Plagne 1800 is the lowest of the 10 main villages but is one of the nicest. Amongst other things it has a good bar, La Mine, with live music everynight (if you like that sort of thing) and a really lovely traditional savoyard resturant just at the bottom of the chairlift out of 1800 along with ski shops, supermarket etc. For the more adventurous of you there is also the olympic bobsleigh track just down the road - very exciting. Whilst it m
