lies to the South of La Plagne and has good links into the skiing above Plagne Centre
and Plagne Bellecôte. It is a traditional village and is an ideal back door resort. Les Coches
(1450m) is a modern resort built in chalet style. It has a good atmosphere and benefits from its own ski school and kindergarten.
Day trips to Les Arcs
are easy, especially now with the connecting gondola. For those willing to travel a little further then trips to Val d'Isere
, and the Three Valleys
, all of which are covered for a day with a six-day pass.
