This is a fabulous value property to renovate in the village of Sangot, part of the commune of Macot, La Plagne that lies at the foot of the road up to the resort of La Plagne, Paradiski.
This is a perfect spot for all year round life with the skiing only 15 minutes away by car at La Roche, Plagne Montalbert or Plagne Montchavin.
The renovation could be in two parts. Firstly the house itself which already has a kitchen area, living areas , bathroom and 3 bedrooms. Secondly the stables and the huge attached barn with hayloft---this is a fabulous space. The house has a garden some 50m away down the road and a large orchard some 200m away up the road. A great spot and a huge amount of property for the money.
The property comprises: A kitchen area, further room and bedroom accessed by the ground floor front door. To the side of this, via a separate door, the former stables which already have a bathroom with WC. Upstairs, accessed via external steps, two bedrooms with attached living rooms. Underneath the house a large cave , partially vaulted.
To the left of the house a huge “grange” with hayloft: fantastic potential to develop into an amazing living space.
Garden some 50m away. Large orchard ( approx 1300m2) some 200m away.
Sangot is part of the commune of Macot, La Plagne. Both Sangot and Macot are places where people live all year round and this is a thriving commune. Macot has a school, shop/post office, boulangerie, the Riant Coteau restaurant and a couple of (very French!) bars. The valley town of Aime is just 3km away for a further choice of services including doctors, pharmacy, vets, shops, restaurants and the railway station.
The tourist town of Bourg St. Maurice is some 13km away. With world class skiing on the doorstep and the cycle path between Aime and Bourg passing the swimming lake with restaurant this is a great spot for all year round holidays.
Travel Info. By car Macot is an approx 10 hour drive from the main channel ports. The nearest train station is Aime La Plagne some 3 km away. Both TGV and Eurostar services run to Aime. The airports of Chambery, Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble all serve the region.
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.
