Resort guide to Aime La Plagne - France

One of the highest purpose built resorts of the Alps. Offers true ski-in & ski-out convenience

Aime La Plagne resort guide - a general overview

Aime La Plagne (2,100 metres) is situated to the Western end of the La Plagne ski domain. It really just constitutes a group of monolithic apartment and hotel blocks. Club Med have one of their chalets in Aime La Plagne that is perched on the mountainside well above the tree line. Of course you get ski-in ski-out accommodation and you are right on the high altitude, snow sure slopes but this is a purpose built resort at its most brutal.

La Plagne (Aime) Mountain Restaurants

Mountain Restaurants in La Plagne are generally good value for money and many have fantastic views of the Vanoise National Park or the Tarentaise Valley, and only get really busy during Peak weeks. For stunning views across the valley to Courchevel, the Rossa on the Champagny side is the best option, you can even nap in the deck chairs! In bad weather head for the lower tree lined runs that lead down to Les Coches & Montchavin, and try the Chez Pat du Sauget. The Arpette is a good value restaurant in the main part of the piste and is easy to get to for most levels of skiers.
