The Villages

We are situated in Montchavin-La Plagne with the mountain villages of Montchavin and Les Coches.  Les Coches and Montchavin are 3 km apart, at the heart of the massive Paradiski area of La Plagne/Les Arcs.

Les Coches is a village of traditional style buildings with a combination of old world character and contemporary comfort, with a few local restaurants and bars.  There are 2 bars and 1 night club open till late for those of you who can dance until 2am.

Montchavin is an authentic working Savoyarde village and a vibrant ski station.  As night falls the village lights make for a magical setting in this picturesque mountain village.  Access by vehicle to the centre of the village is strictly controlled which means there is very little noise to disturb the tranquillity.
