3 things to look out for when booking an apartment in La Plagne

It couldn't be easier to book an apartment in La Plagne. All you have to do is fill in the box at the top of this page or visit our Holiday Rentals page, featuring a great selection of apartments and chalets handpicked by us from a list of accommodation providers. To start your booking process, set your requirements – at least your arrival date and number of people – and we’ll show you which properties are available.

There are a few things you may want to consider beforehand to make sure you find the perfect ski apartment:

1. When should you book your apartment?
We recommend you book your apartment as soon as possible. Holiday rentals usually sell out quite quickly and a lot of people book as early as January for the next winter season. Our top tip is that you book your accommodation before buying your flights or train ticket, the reason being that availability may be limited and apartment start/end dates are not always as flexible as travel options.

As for the best time to stay in an apartment, they're usually open for bookings during the winter and summer high seasons – from December to April and from June to September. However, some accommodation companies may offer interseason holiday rentals for large parties – specify your desired dates in the Special Requirements box while booking and our team will get back to you with alternative options.

2. How long should you book your apartment for?
Ski apartments in La Plagne are generally rented on a weekly basis, usually from Saturday to Saturday. However, these dates can occasionally be flexible and some companies may provide a mix of Saturday and Sunday changeovers.

Lately, thanks to the increased offer in flights, especially cheap ones, shorter and longer ski breaks are becoming more and more popular so some accommodation companies may be flexible on their rental dates on request. Therefore, even if you can only find seven-day offers on our Holiday Rentals page, we may be able to accommodate shorter and longer bookings – state your desired dates in the Special Requirements box and we’ll get back to you with alternative options.

On the other hand, summer apartment bookings in La Plagne are generally more flexible on dates and length of stay, especially outside the peak months of July and August. This means that you may be able to come for a long weekend, for ten days or for a few days mid-week more easily. Again, state your requirements in the Special Requirements box while booking.

3. How big is your group?
Apartments to rent in La Plagne range from small studios to large chalet-apartments, making them suitable for all sorts of parties, from couples looking for a romantic escapade to families or groups of friends. Before booking your apartment, you’ll need to know the exact number of people and the ages of the children coming with you on your holiday – you can filter our holiday rentals by capacity at the top of the page.

La Plagne is really well set up for mountain-loving families, with plenty of activities for all ages and a host of family-friendly apartments.

Where can you find family-friendly apartments in La Plagne?
Plagne 1800 is one of the prettiest villages of La Plagne. This family-friendly town offers a small beginner ski area, where lessons take place, whilst the Melezes and 1800 chairlifts connect the village with the rest of the resort via Plagne Centre and Aime 2000 respectively. Charming Plagne 1800 has not been polluted by high-rise apartment blocks and very few of its buildings reach above five stories. Here you will find attractive self-catering apartments in small complexes that have been constructed in traditional style to ensure that this village retains its Alpine charm.

Belle Plagne is one of the newer additions to the scene and offers modern, purpose-built apartments in more traditional wood-clad designs. The runs surrounding Belle Plagne are wide open, family-friendly blues affording you access to the children’s snow garden, beginner ski area, lift to the snowpark and all the way down into Bellecote, from where you have chairlift access to the rest of the resort.

Budget apartments in La Plagne

Well-known for being a more affordable ski destination, there are some great bargains to be had in La Plagne.

How can you save money on your La Plagne accommodation?
La Plagne has a great selection of budget-friendly apartments dotted all around the ski resort. Plagne Centre was the first area to be constructed in the 1960s, when this part of the Tarentaise Valley was turned into a ski resort. As a result, its buildings reflect the style fashionable at the time, which may seem a bit uninspiring to contemporary eyes. Residential blocks rule here, which generally means that the apartments are smallish in size, good value for money, right at the heart of the nightlife and convenient for the slopes.

The accommodation in Bellecote consists of a giant U-shape of apartment blocks that rise up like a wall at the bottom of the piste. These blocks are predominantly filled with self-catered studios as well as one and two-bedroom apartments sleeping anything from 2 to 8 people which, though less quaint than a snow-covered chalet, are also much less expensive.

Plagne Villages and Plagne Soleil offer a great alternative to the larger villages for a quieter holiday at a cheaper price. Many of the apartments are housed in attractive wooden low-rise buildings thus retaining a traditional feel. There isn't much going in terms of nightlife here but both villages have great access to the fantastic ski area.

Apartment accommodation in the lower-lying villages of Montchavin, Les Coches, Montalbert and Champagny en Vanoise also tends to be good value for money. Of these four villages, the charming Les Coches offers the best choice of apartments as it is a purpose-built village.

Ski-in and ski-out apartments are the most sought-after in La Plagne. There's no better feeling than being able to put your skis on right outside your front door.

Where can you find ski-in & ski-out apartments in La Plagne?
Aime La Plagne, also known as Aime 2000 and situated 30m above Plagne Centre, is a great spot to set up camp on your trip. Accessible by car yet set right in the middle of runs and lifts, Aime 2000 offers a real ski-in/ski-out set up with the accommodation and amenities situated directly on the side of the piste. Built in the 1960s, most of the apartments here are not particularly pleasant on the eye. However, there are a few recently built residences offering luxurious finishes, swimming pools and even spa facilities.
