Property Description

As the title suggests this is a nice, 4 bedroom, house for sale in valley village of Macot, La Plagne at the foot of the road up to La Plagne, Paradiski. It shows how much more you can get for your money by moving away from the ski resort villages and yet the nearest lifts are only 15 minutes away by car.

Macot is a lovely village with a small shop, local restaurant, boulangerie and a couple of (very French!!!) bars.

The house has a lovely garden so this makes it an ideal family home for all year round use and not just the ski season. All the bedrooms are a good size and there is a spacious lounge, dining, open plan kitchen, living area with patio doors leading to the garden. The house also has an integral double garage (some 50 m2) and a cave and laundry area. The owners are keen to stress that this downstairs area could easily be developed into a separate studio apartment and that all services are in place to facilitate this.

The fabulous ski area of La Plagne,Paradiski can be accessed via the La Roche chairlift at 1600m or the very pretty ski villages of Montalbert,La Plagne and Montchavin, La Plagne. All are approx. 15 minutes away by car. The valley town of Aime is 5 minutes away for all the essential services and the Aime La Plagne railway station with its direct Eurostar link. The Aime to Bourg St Maurice cycle track and Plan d’eau lake/leisure area are just down the road

A great, all year round, family house in the mountains. The main living accommodation is accessed via stone steps to the side of the house leading to a doorway into the living area. This is a good space with a big fireplace and patio doors out to the garden. The open plan kitchen is nicely tiled and has a built in oven and fridge as well as an electric and gas hob. Off the living area are the 4 bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC as well as access to the downstairs garage and cave. The bedrooms are all a good size and ,according to the owners, between 10 and 12 sq.m; two of them have built in storage whilst one is currently used as an office. The bathroom is big and nicely tiled with bath, overhead shower attachment, washbasin and a bidet. In total this upstairs accommodation is some 101sq.m. Heating is by electric heaters as well as the fireplace in the lounge area.

Windows are double glazed and the owners stress that the floor has been very well insulated. A short driveway to the rear of the house leads to the very spacious double garage, cave and laundry area. There is plenty of room for cars, skis, bikes ,outdoor furniture etc with the potential to develop some of this space if required.

Macot (approx. 800m) is a great village with an all year round life; it is the village where I live. It maintains a very French atmosphere but there are a few British families in the village either living all year round or with holiday homes. The great bonus is all year round life and access to the valley towns of Aime and Bourg St Maurice with the skiing within easy reach. When the snow is good it is possible to ski ,off piste, all the way down to the village. The La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski ski area is one of the world’s largets ski areas with 425km of piste and some amazing off piste.

Other esorts such as La Rosiere, Ste Foy Tarentaise, Val d’Isere/Tignes and even The 3 Valleys—turn left at Moutiers—are all within less than an hour’s drive. 15 minutes down the valley road the great tourist town of Bourg St Maurice with its shops, restaurants and Saturday market is a lovely place for a stroll around and an evening meal. See you at Le Tonneau sat in the sunshine. Travel Info. Self-drive; it is an approx. 10-hour drive from the main channel ports. By train; the nearest station is Aime La Plagne approx. 5 minutes away by car. A direct Eurostar service runs in the winter as well as regular TGV and local services. By air; Chambery, Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble are the main airports serving this part of The Alps. All offer bus and train connections as well as car hire facilities.

Paradiski Ski Area

Paradiski is the name of the joint La Plagne, Les Arcs, ski area linked together by the Vanoise Express cable car. Opened in December 2003,the Vanoise Express is currently the world’s largest single span cable car; in fact there are two of them both capable of ferrying 200 people across the Ponthurin valley that divides the two areas. The journey and the views make for a spectacular 4-minute ride.

In total Paradiski offers a HUGE 425 km of piste. Individually, La Plagne (225 km) and Les Arcs (200km) are significant ski areas in their own right and are both made up of different villages. In La Plagne the high altitude villages are Aime 2000,Plagne Centre, Belle Plagne, Plagne Bellecote, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages and Plagne 1800. These are all situated between 1800m and 2100m and offer snowsure high altitude ski in ski out convenience.

Lower down the delightful villages of Montchavin, Les Coches, Montalbert and Champagny en Vanoise all offer the charm and cosy comfort of village life, with their own tree lined local slopes and easy access to the high altitude slopes of La Plagne.

In Les Arcs the high altitude villages are Arcs 1600, Arcs 1800, Arcs 2000 and, the latest development, Arcs 1950. Again these all offer a ski in ski out experience. Great cruising runs through the trees lead to the lower villages of Plan Peisey, Vallandry and Villaroger for a more traditional mountain experience.

Both La Plagne and Les Arcs offer something for everyone. Early intermediate blue and red run skiers can soon explore the area and travel around the mountain enjoying some of the good value mountain restaurants.

However with two glaciers at over 3,000m, a wealth of “between the piste” and off piste and long runs through the trees, there really is something for all levels of skier---and let’s not forget you boarders out there—both resorts offer a choice of snowparks with jumps, rails and the ,all important, music. La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski—one of the world’s great ski areas.

La Plagne Ski Resort

La Plagne is one of France’s largest and most popular ski resorts. It is also extremely popular with British skiers and boarders who make up around 35% of the visitors to this great resort. With some 225 km. of piste, continual upgrading of the lift facilities and slopes for all standards of skier there is something for everybody. If this is not enough for you the amazing Vanoise Express double decker gondola link to Les Arcs opens up another 200km. of slopes.


The joint La Plagne, Les Arcs, PARADISKI ski domain is one of the world’s truly great fully linked ski areas. La Plagne is not just one resort but a collection of ski villages, 6 at high altitude and 4 further down the mountain, each with their own shops, restaurants, bars and ski schools.


At high altitude the 6 villages are; Aime La Plagne (2100m),Belle Plagne(2050m),Plagne Villages/Soleil(2050m),Plagne Bellecote(1930m),Plagne Centre(1970m) and Plagne 1800(1800m). Of these the pitched roof chalet style of Belle Plagne, Plagne Villages/Soleil and Plagne 1800 are the most attractive to British eyes. However the other three are not without their fans and offer ski in ski out convenience and some great value accommodation.


The original la Plagne, Plagne Centre, is undergoing a considerable facelift and next year work begins on the indoor shopping and restaurant areas. Lower down the mountain there are more traditional villages. Les Coches at 1450 m has been purpose built in a pleasing chalet style and recent lift improvements have transformed access to the higher slopes.


Champagny en Vanoise (1250m) and, in particular, Montchavin(1250m) and Montalbert(1350m) have retained their rustic farming charm and have a strong following amongst British clients. Between them the villages of La Plagne offer something for everyone. There are wide, cruising blue slopes for the less confident or those “hot chocolate” skiers amongst you with tough blacks and a wealth of off piste for the stronger /more adventurous skier. Boarders have not been forgotten with a variety of Terrain parks on offer.


Accommodation varies from simple, great value, ski in ski out studios and apartments to luxury new build apartments and chalets.
