Residence Les Balcons de Belle Plagne are a collection of self-catering apartments, 200 yards from the ski lifts, in the ever-popular French ski region of La Plagne. The area is a mixture of purpose-built resorts and cute traditional Alpine villages, each with their own distinctive feel, making exploring the area a worthwhile pastime. There’s plenty to do with activities and festivals laid on throughout the year and families can even try out the Olympic bob sleigh run. Families will enjoy soaking up the atmosphere, improving skills on the slopes and then heading back to the privacy and freedom of their own private apartments.
The apartments all vary in size and can sleep between 2-20 people, and all come with free WiFi, fully equipped kitchen, balcony, Satellite TV and whirlpool baths for easing those aching muscles. Guests have access to two restaurants, which are both open during the winter season and serve Savoyard dishes which you can sit back and savor while enjoying the panoramic views and there’s also a pool, spa, sauna and fitness suite. Guests get preferential rates at the local ski hire shop so you should be all togged up and ready to hit the slopes in no time.
