Bellecote

The crossing point for lots of pistes and a good place to find an apartment

Featured in: | Updated

Plagne Bellecote is linked via a shuttle bus to Plagne Centre and 1800 and by bubble to Belle Plagne. It's packed with accommodation, restaurants, shops, activities and events Plagne Bellecote rivals Plagne Centre as the hub of the whole resort scene.

Unbeatable for piste access, Bellecote village is host to a convergence of runs coming from all directions and with four chair lifts, one drag and one bubble lift all heading off to different ski areas and all within a stone's throw of each other plus a beginner’s ski zone complete with magic carpet lift you can really get the most out of your skiing from here.

Events in La Plagne - Bellecote

If great ski access, multiple restaurants, bars and late night clubs aren’t selling it to you take advantage of one of Bellecote's multiple activities such as the heated outdoor swimming pool in the centre of the village with a view of the piste, take a ski-joering trip with the local horses, watch a world-class competition on the half pipe, or if you are lucky enough to be there for New Year's Eve sit back and enjoy being in the perfect spot for the biggest event in La Plagne’s social calendar, the epic open-air piste party that is La Nuit du Pompom Rouge.

Things to Do in La Plagne - Bellecote

The lifts give you easy access to Champagny, Plagne Centre, Montchavin – along with the Vanoise express to Les Arcs, the Roche de Mio bubble starts here and the glacier is just two bubble stops away. The lifts also service the snow park, boardercross run and competition-grade half-pipe situated just above the village and viewable from the accommodation and eateries in the centre. Bellecote is a major junction for people accessing all areas of the mountain and in peak season this can lead to some heavy-lift queues especially around 10 am as all the ski schools head out at once and at 4.30pm as everyone strives to head back to Plagne Centre en masse via the Colosses chair. If you are aware and avoid the peak times, you can't beat Bellecote for snow access.

Apartments in La Plagne - Bellecote

A hub it may be but pretty it is not, no log cabins in sight here, 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, studio, one and two-bedroom apartments sleeping anything from 2 to 8 people, which though less quaint than a snow-covered chalet is also less expensive. Due to the nature of the accommodation, there is a lot of private rentals and it suits many seasonaires and staff who are billeted here for the entirety of the season.
