Les Coches is a small picturesque village located in the famous ski resort of La Plagne in France. La Plagne is a part of the «Paradiski ski» area, which is the second largest (after the Three Valleys) skiing area in the world.
Le Coches is a small charming village in a truly Savoyard style with traditional architecture. Les Coches will charm you by its grandiose natural landscape, cosy surroundings and access to breathtaking ski trails. At your service: bar, restaurant, ice rink, disco, hiking. You can always go to explore the mountain beauty and visit neighbouring resorts.
Les Coches is located at an altitude of 1450m. The resort is connected by ski lifts with the La Plagne ski area, which is a part of the United zone of Paradiski. Unlike the neighbouring station Montchavin, which is only three kilometres and 200 meters below, the history of the place of Les Coches began only a few years ago. While Montchavin was turning from a mountain village to a modern ski station, Les Coches emerged from the forest at an altitude of 1,450m. Despite, this small station differs traditional and typical for the terrain architecture and creates the same atmosphere, as well as older stations.
This atmosphere is supported by chalets and apartments, finished with wood, and around which are narrow paths with no cars allowed. On the other hand, in spite of this cosy and nostalgic mood, Les Coches has all the amenities of a modern ski station. And don’t forget about the unique landscape, which is decorated with the mountain Mont-Blanc!
