What a lovely property for sale close to La Cote d’Aime and within easy driving distance of La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski as well as the valley towns of Aime and Bourg St. Maurice. Situated on the sunny side of the valley this would make a superb , all year round family home. With accommodation over 3 floors including a large double garage, 4 bedrooms, one of which is a master suite with own bathroom and dressing, a spacious top floor living, dining and kitchen area opening on to a large terrace with great views of the mountains and the added bonus of the woodstore to renovate, this is a property that has been finished to a very lovely standard. La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski needs no introduction as one of the world’s great ski areas with La Rosiere, Ste Foy Tarentaise and Val d’Isere/Tignes also easily accessible by car.
The accommodation is over 3 floors and offers approx. 185m2 of habitable space though this is not officially verified. All measurements have been furnished by the owner. Entering the house at the front on the ground floor there is a nice entrance hallway with storage and door connecting to the large garage (approx 85m2) with automatic door leading to the driveway. There is easily space for 2 cars and a whole host of stuff.
On the first floor are the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are approx 14m2 with built in storage whilst the 3rd bedroom, also with storage, is a little smaller at approx. 11m2. The 4th bedroom is a substantial master suite with its own balcony, shower room and dressing—a great bedroom. There is also a separate WC and a large bathroom (10m2) with bath, shower cabinet, double sinks and washing machine.
The second floor offers a superb, light, spacious (75m2), open plan living, dining and kitchen area with wood burning stove and access to a substantial balcony/covered terrace of approx 30m2. This offers stunning views over the valley to the mountains beyond. There is also a separate WC, large larder and local technique on this floor.
The owner is keen to point out that all walls, flooring and the roof space have substantial insulation and that top quality fixtures and fittings have been used throughout. The fitted kitchen is by Schmidt, the windows are argon gas double glazed units throughout and the wood burning stove is a top quality item. The house sits on a good sized plot and has its own driveway and parking area. The final bonus is the wood store to the front with vaulted cellars on the ground floor.
The house sits in a zone where construction is not possible but , as an existing structure, this could be renovated and developed into an additional 70m2 or so of separate accommodation with rental potential. Situated on the sunny, south facing “Versant du Soleil” side of the valley this property would be perfect for all year round living or all year round holidays.

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.
