Lovely modern, 50sqm, well equipped & spacious apartment. Booking 2016/17 now!



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
2 bedrooms. modern kitchen and comfortable lounge, wifi & great mountain views

'Colchique' is a lovely 50 sq m apartment in the exciting resort of La Plagne, part of the massive Paradiski area. It is modern and well equipped and makes a perfect base for families or groups of friends holidaying together.


Apartment 'Colchique' has 2 bedrooms. One has a comfortable double bed, and plenty of storage in a large fitted wardrobe. When you open the shutter in the morning, you should have a sunny mountain view.

The second bedroom has new sturdy bunk beds suitable for children or adults, with a 3rd pull out bed so that the room can be used for 3 persons if required. A large fitted wardrobe provides plenty of storage.

An alpine style sofa in the lounge will convert into 1 or 2 single beds.

Living room

The light and airy living area has fabulous views over the Tarantaise valley and the Mont Blanc massif. There is a smart TV with British and French channels, a Blu-ray/DVD player and Bluetooth audio system. Free internet and wi-fi is provided for the sole benefit of our guests. Viewing and sharing those on-piste videos and holiday pictures could not be simpler.

Kitchen and dining area

The kitchen features a multi-function built in oven, 4 ring electric hob and extractor, full size dishwasher, and large fridge with freezer compartment. Plenty of pots, pans and utensils, a cafetiere, toaster and an electric slow cooker are available.

The dining table seats 6 but if you need a bigger table an extension piece is provided.

Bathroom and lavatory

A large bathroom features a full size bath with shower over, basin and large electric towel rail. It is also home to the washing machine. There is a separate lavatory.


A good sized entrance provides plenty of space to store your ski togs away in the wardrobe. An electric boot dryer is provided to condition your ski boots for the following day.


A lovely large double aspect balcony, with morning and early afternoon sunshine, provides patio seating and a table to enjoy the magnificent views of the mountains.


A full size garage (a VW Passat fits) is available to provide covered parking for our guests - a real boon in the snowy weather.

Ski locker

A locker and boot changing room is available by the apartment block front door or it is possible to change out of your ski boots and leave your skis in the garage

Other services

End of stay clean charged at £40. Linen is available for hire if required or bring your own. Our local rep will meet you on arrival and can provide assistance with lift passes, ski hire (some companies will deliver to the apartment), ski school and loads of other information


The apartment is located at Crete Cote Village, just below Plagne 1800, and just above the Olympic bobsleigh piste.

To reach the pistes and lifts, you can take the free bus that passes the apartment every hour going up to the various La Plagne stations, or every hour going down to the La Roche lift. Skiers with a bit of experience can use the track (it was pisted last season,) opposite the apartment to join the La Roche red run. Subject to snow conditions a track leading down from Plagne 1800 will bring you down close to the Crete Cote apartments, although a bit of confidence will be needed for this. If you are taking lessons, some of the schools will pick you up to take you to lessons!

For those of you who bring a car, parking is available at La Roche or up in the other linked La Plagne resorts.

During the summer

La Plagne is great during the summer season too (July and August.) There are loads of activities for adults and kids alike - mountain biking, great walks, tennis, sports centre activities, swimming, parcours adventure (ropes in the trees) and the excellent Base de Loisirs in Aime.

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days skiing and staying in your apartment and our children described the holiday as the best one yet! High praise indeed. They loved sleeping in the bunk beds!

Lovely, well equipped, home from home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful summer holiday at Apartment Colchique, it was our first time in the Alps and we couldn't have asked for more. The view from the balcony is something else and the apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped with thoughtful touches like board games and DVD's. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook family meals and it was all in excellent condition, something we have found lacking in other rentals. We loved sitting out on the balcony watching the birds swoop around whilst reading with a glass of wine. We had a great time exploring the area, there is loads to do within walking distance and will definitely be back for more exploring and those amazing views. Thanks Jo for all your help in making this one of the best holidays we have had in years.

From the Owner

A modern apartment built in the traditional alpine style, offering generous sized accommodation for a holiday home. Fitted out to a good specification, many of the fixtures and fittings were new for the 2015 season. Crete Cote is a quiet residential area just below Plagne 1800, making it a great base for a holiday in La Plagne. Access to the pistes is easy, with a pisted tracking giving great access to the La Roche run. In the evening it is possible through most of the season to return to within 100m or so of the apartment by taking a back route along a track from Plagne 1800. For those less confident, there is a good bus service up the mountain to Plagne 1800 or down to the La Roche lift.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Loup Blanc, Plagne 1800 at 500 Metres Nearest Train : Aime (Eurostar & TGV from Paris/Lille) at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Motorway to Albertville. Good road to Aime at 55 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Loup Blanc Plagne 1800 at 500 Metres Nearest Ski : The Roche piste. Free Bus, off piste or walk at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : BASE DE LOISIRS, AIME (Lovely Lake!) at 20 Kilometres Car: recommended

Situated in La Plagne, part of the massive Paradiski area, there really is something for skiers of all abilities. It's great for families, beginners and experts alike.

The apartment is located just down the hill from Plagne 1800. Access to the the nearest red run piste (the Roche lift,) is by a short walk or for confident skiers by an off piste track. The free bus runs every hour up and down the mountain, so provides a twice and hour frequency service to the lifts if you do not want to ski.

If you book lessons with the Oxygene ski school a minibusis available to pick you up for lessons and drop you back afterwards.

Summer in the mountains is great fun too. There are plenty of well signposted walks and absolutely loads of mountain bike trails . July and August provide activity for all of the family with key lifts open making access to the mountains easy.

From the Owner

We hope that if you book to stay in our apartment that you will enjoy it as much as we and our children do. We love the bright, airy feel, the spacious balcony and the just fabulous views from the front windows. La Plagne is a great place to holiday in winter or summer.
