At the edge of the ski resort of La Plagne are the two mountain villages Montchavin and Les Coches. Montchavin is located at 1250m altitude and Les Coches at 1450m altitude. Montchavin is originally an old farming village while Les Coches was newly built in 1973.
Both villages have their own ski area with mainly red and blue pistes. When choosing a ski holiday in Les Coches, you have the advantage that of all of the different villages in Paradiski it has the most central location with regards to access to both Les Arcs and La Plagne. After heading up the lift, take a short blue run to gain access to the Vanoise Express. This takes you to Les Arcs in no time!
For anyone that is looking for a long ski day, be sure to head to La Plagne. Challenge yourself to the 10km descent that starts from Roche de Mio (2,700 m) and ends in Montchavin. The ski packages from Sunweb in Montchavin and Les Coches all include a lift pass for the entire area of La Plagne.
The resort centers are made up of narrow streets, small squares and plenty of cheap shops. This creates an authentic and traditional French atmosphere. If you are looking for alternative actives besides skiing and snow boarding, there is an indoor ice rink, torch light descents and toboggan runs.
