Belle Plagne Hotels
If you thought that all French resorts were purpose built and unattractive, then think again. Belle Plagne, one of the 10 villages that make up La Plagne, is a pretty, architecturally stylised resort with attractive buildings made from local wood and stone, all positioned around a compact centre. Situated up at just over 2000 metres, a stay in a hotel in Belle Plagne will not only guarantee superb accommodation with amazing views but also excellent snow conditions right back to your doorstep.
The hotels are all of a very good standard and have an appeal to every pocket and purse. As the properties are all based around the centre of the village, you never have far to go to get to the slopes and lifts or the resort centre for the welcoming bars and shops. Newly refurbished, 3 star Hotel Mercure is just a stone's throw from the heart of the resort and under normal snow conditions, you can ski straight back to your door. Representing good value for money, this friendly hotel offers pampering spa treatments to ease those aches and pains as well as superb pre-bookable childrens' clubs to entertain your little ones whether they want to ski or not. The rooms are well equipped and money saving deals are available to make your stay even more pleasurable!
If your family is looking for a little more luxury but with a really homely, welcoming feel, then the Chalet Hotel des Deux Domaines is the ideal choice, complete with more comforts than you can shake a stick at, including a swimming pool, a steam room, outdoor hot tubs and dvd players. The bedrooms are really spacious and well appointed and the food served is mouthwateringly delicious. Be sure to be back for afternoon tea! A short skate down a path will take you to the slopes and you are equally a very short walk to the resort centre for a little retail therapy or a relaxing drink or two.
Belle Plagne is definitely worth discovering and worthy of its family friendly 'Iglu recommendation'. Please see below for more details.
