Property Description

At 92,79m2 this is a very spacious apartment that would provide very comfortable accommodation for a family. The large kitchen/diner is on the ground floor with the big living area, bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper level. To the front of the property there is a covered terrace. This apartment is part of a small development of 6 apartments built by a well known local developer. As such it qualifies for reduced notaire’s fees compared to the purchase of a resale apartment. Montchavin (1250m) is a pretty ski village linking into all of the amazing La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski ski area; one of the world’s great ski domains.

The accommodation is over 2 levels and comprises: Level 1. Large kitchen/diner. 27.57m2 Storage room. 6.87m2 Level 2. Bedroom 1. 8.25m2 with en suite shower room and WC at 2.66m2 Bedroom 2. 13.60m2. Shower room with WC. 4.80m2 Large lounge with Juliet balcony. 26.95m2 As the measurements suggest this apartment offers a very spacious living area. The entrance to the apartment is via a private terrace. There is a ski locker and parking.

The twin villages of Montchavin (1250m) and Les Coches (1450m) offer some fantastic tree lined slopes as well as access to all of high altitude La Plagne. The Vanoise Express cable car just above the villages links La Plagne to Les Arcs creating Paradiski, one of the world’s largest ski areas with 425km of slopes some 70% of which are above 2,000m. Both villages offer a good selection of restaurants, shops and a couple of bars. The respecte Evolution 2 ski school operate in both villages. Montchavin also has the Espace Paradisio indoor/outdoor swimming pool complex. As well as the ski season the villages enjoy a busy summer season in July and August. The all year round life of the valley and towns such as Bourg St Maurice are just a 10-15 minute drive away.

Travel Information. Self drive; it is an approx. 10 hour drive to the resort from the main channel ports. By rail; a direct eurostar service runs to Aime la Plagne and Bourg St Maurice in the winter season. The nearest station is Landry some 10 minutes away by car. Air travel; Chambery, Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble are the main airports serving the resort.

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.
