Property Description

This is a spacious ( 69,35m2) apartment for sale only minutes away from the fantastic La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski ski domain; one of the world’s great ski areas. It is part of a small development of only 6 apartments, a sympathetic restoration of an old farmhouse and adjoining barn by a well respected local developer. As such it benefits from reduced notaire’s fees; a considerable saving over the purchase of a resale apartment. With 2 bedrooms, tastefully finished décor including kitchen units and bathroom, thermostat controls for the under floor heating and private parking all that is needed is furniture and appliances to complete your home in the mountains.

The ski village of Montchavin (1250m) is just one bend up the mountain. Twinned with sister village Les Coches (1450m) all of La Plagne, Paradiski is virtually on your doorstep.

Plagne Montchavin is the new name for the twin villages of Montchavin and Les Coches. Both offer a good choice of ski shops, restaurants and a couple of bars. The excellent ski school, Evolution 2, operates in the villages. Montchavin has its own cinema and the Espace Paradisio indoor/outdoor swimming pool complex. The local ski area has some lovely tree lined skiing whilst access to high altitude la Plagne is via a series of modern chairlifts. The amazing Vanoise Express cable car link to Les Arcs is just above the two villages; in total Paradiski offers some 425km of slopes. There is a busy summer season in July and August with walking, cycling, mountain biking,parapenting, white water rafting and canoeing just some of the activites on offer. The valley town of Bourg St Maurice is an easy 15 minute drive away for all year round life and activities.

Travel Info. By car it is an approx 10 hour drive to the resort from the main channel ports. By train, direct Eurostar services run to Aime La Plagne and Bourg St Maurice. The nearest station is Landry just a few km away. Chambery, Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble are the main airports serving the area with transfer times of between one and two hours.

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.

Montchavin - Les Coches Ski Resort

Montchavin (1250m) and Les Coches (1450m) are two charming, family orientated villages at the meeting point of the La Plagne, Les Arcs ski areas which together make up the amazing Paradiski ski domain.


In many ways they provide it all; peaceful village life, a bit of nightlife, excellent restaurants, traditional buildings and super efficient skiing facilities. Montchavin has a unique rustic charm; this is still a farming community with chickens and geese and farming smells!! There are some delightful old buildings whilst more modern additions have been built in a sympathetic style. The cobbled high street provides a variety of ski shops, a supermarket, a couple of bars, a lovely patisserie, an excellent 2 star hotel and even a cinema. There are half a dozen good value restaurants of which Le Ferme de Cesar remains a personal favourite.


Les Coches, situated a little further up the mountain, has been purpose built in chalet style out of wood and stone with pitched slate roofs. There is a lovely pedestrianised commercial heart to the village with a variety of shops, a supermarket, the excellent The Last One bar and a choice of good value restaurants.


Both villages easily connect to the La Plagne ski area and Les Arcs via the Vanoise Express gondola link. From Montchavin the Montchavin chairlift and Les Coches “bubble” are the two main lifts out of the village…it is a two minute ski from the top of the Montchavin chair to the Vanoise Express link to Les Arcs. From Les Coches the 6 man Plan Bois chairlift and the Lac Noir gondola are the main lifts.


There are a total of 30 km of skiing in the Montchavin-Les Coches local area: the picturesque tree lined runs are superb after a new fall of snow and provide excellent skiing in bad weather when many higher pistes are closed. Two lovely villages that we feel sure will appeal to those seeking charm as well as top class skiing.


Most of the accommodation for sale in the villages is apartments ranging from compact studios to 3 bedroom apartments; however, larger individual chalets are also available.
