Resort guide to Plagne Soleil - France

Quiet resort largely made up of small scale chalet developments for self catering

Plagne Soleil resort guide - a general overview

Plagne Soleil and Plagne Villages both at 2,050 metres are satellite suburbs of Plagne Centre. Neither has a real commercial centre and ski holidays in Plagne Soleil have little to offer other than well priced accommodation with easy access to the great ski area.

Resort value


  • Slopes to please skiers & snowboarders from complete beginners through to offpiste experts
  • Very family friendly - good ski schools & lots of apres ski activities!
  • Mountain restaurants with great views and reasonable prices
  • High in altitude and snow sure, especially the Bellecote Glacier
  • Linked to Les Arcs by the fantastic Vanoise Express cable car that crosses the valley


  • Not the prettiest looking in the higher parts of resort! The lower villages more traditional
  • There are some flat spots for Snowboarders but route planning means these can be avoided.
  • Not a huge variety of nightlife although at Plagne 1800 there's a trendy new design style bar
  • Resort buses that are reliable but don't run often or late, miss the last one & you need a taxi

La Plagne (Soleil) 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.
