The ski resort La Plagne is located in the valley of Haute Tarentaise, almost in the center of the French Alps. It can be called a resort of world importance, because the competitions of the Winter Olympics were held here in 1992. The resort was established in 1961, and since 2003, together with neighboring Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry, it forms the second in the world after the famous «Three Valleys» ski area Paradiski.
On the site of the former settlement of miners in the 70s and 80s one of the favorite high-mountainous bases of the ski resort of La Plagne grows. At an altitude of 1800 meters is located the mountain village of the same name Plagne 1800, which is a cozy place to relax in the center of a large ski area. The original appearance of the Plagne 1800 is formed, above all, by a wooden chalet with a typical for the region slate roof. Buildings not higher than 5 floors and houses that perfectly fit in the surrounding landscape, give the small ski base an exceptionally harmonious look.
Quiet and cozy atmosphere and at the same time the location in the heart of the ski slopes are especially appreciated by fans of family holidays. Plagne 1800, which is often referred to as the "La Plagne Nest", is an ideal starting point for those who want to take advantage of all the benefits of the ski area of La Plagne or the entire network of ski runs of the Paradiski ski area.
