Les Coches offers two free beginners lifts which provide excellent areas for children and adults who want to learn the ski basics without the requirement for purchasing ski lift passes.

The wide blues and reds of the Paradiski area are perfect for intermediates and the blacks on the Bellcôte Glacier and Aiguille Rouge are testing enough for any advanced skier or boarder.

The Rhone/French Alps region

The well established resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs have now become a part of one of the largest ski areas in the world with the opening of the Vanoise Express cable car connecting the two areas. The distinctive double-decker cable car connects the two resorts via Les Coches in La Plagne and Plan Peisey in Les Arcs creating a combined ski area that is known as Paradiski with a huge 425kms of marked pistes.

The village of Les Coches is ideally positioned for exploring both La Plagne and Les Arcs.

Both Les Arcs and La Plagne comprise modern purpose built winter factories but also a few pretty villages such as Champagny, Les Coches, Montchavin or Peisey Vallandry. Bordered by the scenic Vanoise National park, the area includes some typically pretty mountain landscape.

For thrill-seekers, Les Arcs' famous Flying Kilometre course is the place for the World's speed record on skis with more than 150mph to beat.

La Plagne (Les Coches)

La Plagne has 10 satellite villages of which Les Coches is one. If you still need more skiing then you could always get the Vanoise Express (leaving from Les Coches) over to Les Arcs for the day.

Altitude Maxi: 3250m

Altitude Mini : 1200m

425 km of slopes

240 Marked Tracks:

182 Ski Lifts

4 snowparks

Glaciers:

Bellecote Glacier (Les Coches / La Plagne)

Aiguilee Rouge 3226m (Les Arcs)

1 Bob Sleigh run (La Plagne hosted this event during the 1992 Winter Olympics)

Ice Skating – in Les Coches

Les Coches is a quieter alternative to bustling La Plagne yet it shares its giant neighbour's Paradiski ski domain, one of the world's largest.

This means that the ski lifts rise for an incredible 2000 vertical metres above the village to snowsure glacier snow fields, a figure matched by less than a dozen other resorts on the planet.

Les Coches has a small selection of bars and restaurants, supermarket, boulangerie, and laundrette. There's a further selection of bars and restaurants as well as a nightclub in nearby Montchavin, linked by ski lifts and a shuttle bus.

Les Coches is not aimed at the party going crowd, but more at people who appreciate skiing in a traditional French resort. The skiing and boarding is suitable for all abilities with gentle runs back to resort for beginners and a huge domain with two glaciers for snow-sure skiing for the experts. Snow making facilities ensure runs remain open back to the resort to the end of the season.

The village has a natural appeal for families, which has earned it the Famille Plus accreditation for the quality of its services awarded by the French government's Ski France organisation. Montchavin is traffic free and offers children's clubs and a nursery, so is a perfect location for families.

Child-minding facilities (with state accreditation) include the Baby Club Montchavin which provides indoor and outdoor activities including drawing, painting, games, sledging, walks, snowman building and time for a nap, if required, for one to three year olds.

Activities in the village include snowshoeing, an ice rink at the top of Montchavin gondola lift, with 800 sq m of artificial ice rink, a cinema and a well being centre with Turkish bath, sauna, massages and beauty treatments.

In other La Plagne villages nearby which can be skied to there are more activity options, including the rare chance for the brave to descend a bobsleigh run, in this case built for the 1992 Winter Olympics staged in the area. You can either take a 'taxi' bobsleigh at top speed behind a professional driver or jump in a 'self steering' craft with friends which goes a little slower but is still fast enough.

SUMMER

If you prefer the Alps for your summer holidays then there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained in the La Plagne / Les Arcs / Les Coches area

- Hiking in the Alps / Walking / Nature Trails – why not take a family picnic

- White water rafting or canyoning (H2O Rafting Centre Landry 10 minutes away).

- Swimming - there is an outside pool complex in Monchavin or a fresh water lake 10 mins away in the direction of Aime

SHOPPING

Les Coches is conveniently positioned close to the large Town of Bourge St Maurice (15 minutes away) where there are three large supermarkets. Super U, Intermarche, and Lidl. Macdonalds and a wealth of shops and restaurants.

How to get there

The nearest airport is Chambery (105 km) or Grenoble, Geneva and Lyon are within 2-3 hours.

About Gavin and Nicola Davies

We are a family of five with three teenage boys. We live in South Wales (Pays De Galle). We love skiing, snowboarding, water sports and cooking (plus eating).

We purchased our holiday home last season 2013 and have made a number improvements to make it homely. We have fully refurbished the apartment for 2014 ski season. We would like to offer our guests something special and individual with all the home from home comforts needed to make a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Gavin and Nicola Davies purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gavin and Nicola Davies chose Bellentre

We fell in love with this place as soon as we drove up to the resort through the trees. Les Coches has a lovely tranquil feel about it and is a great family resort. The skiing is the best we have encountered with amazing off piste and wide open runs. We feel we have the best of both worlds with over 425 km of runs to choose from yet only a short 15 minute drive from the town of Bourg Saint Maurice and easy access from a choice of four airports and the major roads in France.

What makes this apartment unique

We choose our ski-in apartment in Le Bilboquet because of the close location to both the piste and the village. We also loved the 180 degree alpine views from the balcony of Mont Blanc and Les Arcs. The apartment has a really cosy feel about it with great storage in the separate hallway. The layout is particularly good for families and couples/ friends as the two sleeping areas are well separated which gives good privacy and living space.

Well situated apartment in great ski area.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was fine for the two of us providing a comfortable and well situated base for a weeks skiing in this charming resort. It was clean, well kept, a short walk away from the slopes and the Plan Bois chairlift. We mostly self catered and this apartment is very suitable for doing so as it is well equipped. Temperatures were below freezing throughout our stay but by careful use of the extra heating available it was possible to keep the apartment cosy. The ski locker nearby was very useful as equipment was secure and easy to get to. We found the extensive slopes of La Plagne area ideal for us and did not feel the need to go across to Les Arcs. The Vanoise Express is easily accessible for those who do require the extra kilometreage. The road up to Les Coches from Landry was quite icy, especially for the last kilometre, but we managed to get to the apartment without using our snow chains. Parking opposite Le Bilboquet was readily available and cleared of snow during the week. The apartments were not busy while we were there but our next door neighbours did get quite noisy on a couple of evenings.Overall a great weeks skiing with blue skies every day, plenty of snow on the pistes and fabulous views in all directions. The owners were very helpful and communication was excellent.

Lovely apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little apartment in a fabulous location. With a short, slightly uphill walk to the piste in the morning you can ski to the main lift in seconds, at the end of the day you can ski back down to the apartment block door. Alternatively you can walk down the road at the front and be there in a few minutes. The apartment itself is warm and clean and very cosy. There is everything you need for your stay no matter how long you are there. The communication from the owners was excellent so finding and getting in went without a hitch.

Les Coches is a lovely town with a few bars and restaurants and a very handy small supermarket, if you're looking for St Anton type apres then this probably isn't for you, but if want the option of a few beers and something to eat at the end of the day then it's all here.

Les Coches is situated to the very left hand side of the La Plange ski area and with great lift s you can be in the thick of it in no time at all. The best part though is that you can get to the cable car to take you to Les Arcs In minutes, so for this reason Les Coches is probably the best spot in the whole area.

Our stay at 209 Le Bilboquet

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy but homely and clean flat in a really nice resort with great access to an amazing ski area. We had a fantastic holiday, about 5 mintue brisk walk to a small supermarket (little longer on the way back) and a good set of local amenities.

Able to ski back to the flat, going out inolved a little walk but not too bad at all and our small kids managed just fine.

Flat owners communicated really well and it was a far cry from previous experiences of booking self catering ski accommodation.

A very nice decor, very cozy inside. Very good contact with the very friendly owners. We highly recommend this apartment located in an idyllic resort.
