Montchavin

Ski holidays in Montchavin, France take place at an altitude of 1250m in the vast ski area of Paradiski. It is originally an old farming village and still maintains an authentic, historic French ambience.

When skiing in Montchavin, you will notice that most of the accommodations are built in a traditional chalet style and you won’t find any high rise buildings within the streets in the centre. There are instead many narrow streets, quaint squares and cheap shops which help to create a unique winter atmosphere.

Skiing in Montchavin

Ski holidays in Montchain are the perfect ski holiday for those looking for the benefits of a large, modern ski area while staying in a small, quieter charming village. The village itself has its own range of slopes, however, with just a short ride on one of the ski lifts, you can access the area of La Plagne and Les Arcs.

A must for any adventurer on a ski holiday in Montchavin is the beautiful 10km descent Roche de Mio which finishes in the village.
