About the property

35sq.m south facing apartment - 5 beds, kitchen, large balcony

Excellent location with direct access to the best skiing areas. 6th floor location gives fantastic mountain views from the south facing balcony and sitting room. Direct access to the piste from ski locker. There is a good sized sitting area and separate dining area. The kitchen has a full size fridge, dishwasher, oven and two ring hob. Separate bathroom and toilet. Probably the best location in la Plagne. SKIERS - The Arpette chair takes you directly to the Les Arcs link (Vanoise Express) and to the Montchevin/Les Coche area with great skiing through the wooded slopes. The Roche de Mio bubble goes straight to the Glacier area as well as a wonderful, long run down to Champany. Fabulous skiing on wide pistes and the opportunity for off-piste adventures close to the pistes. NON-SKIERS - 6 restaurants, 5 bars, Spa/Jacuzzi/Hamman, supermarket, 2 delis, cinema, heated outdoor pool, pharmacy, free parking. Good access to the many kilometers of walking trails.

Getting There: With easy access from nearby airports and low cost flights (Geneva, St Etienne, Chambery Lyon) La Plagne is an ideal holiday location. The airports are linked by regular bus services to Aime. From Aime there are taxis and the local bus service up to Plagne Bellecote.

Car hire from Geneva is cheaper if you hire in the French sector and avoid Swiss Motorways.

All Eurostars from Waterloo and the Snow Trains stop at Aime or nearby Moutiers and Bourg St. Maurice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing week in Bellecôte; the apartment was clean, warm, comfortable, well equipped and in a fantastic location, in walking distance of chair lifts, nursery slopes, the telecabine and shops and bars. The views of the mountains were incredible. We had fresh snow and glorious sunshine and one of the best family holidays we can remember.

Excellent location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at Plagne Bellacote, staying in one of the apartments (Glacier 3) facing the main slopes. Apartment was small but had everything we needed including a sun-trap balcony, which was a real result - especially as 5 out of the 7 days were full, hot sunshine.

The ease of ski storage, the close proximity to the shops, ski hire, slopes, lifts and restaurants was really great. Have never stayed in ski-in, ski-out before, but wouldn't settle for anything less now! Would thoroughly recommend La Plagne, this apartment and the owners were really helpful all the way through.

Great ski in/out apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week over New Year at Martin's apartment. The apartment is really well located overlooking the Arpette chairlift and the ski locker room leads straight out onto the snow. Although the apartment is a little dated the beds were surprisingly comfortable and everything worked, making this a good value rental. It was also very nice at the end of a hard day's skiing to have a bath and not just a shower. It was our first time staying in Plagne Bellecote and the sledging slope, the ice rink and the swimming pool made this a great choice for us and our kids. The New Year's Eve celebrations were amazing and we may well be back next season. Thanks Martin

Practical and convenient for family of 5 with piste view and helpful landlords

  • 5 of 5

The property is very convenient for family skiing with the ski locker next to the piste. The area with the 3 beds for children can be sectioned off from the main room for evening. The kitchen is well equipped, there are lots of hooks and shelves which is great for 5 lots of ski gear. Lots of cupboard space, and space to put suitcases. Great view of the pistes coming into Bellecote. Very helpful landlords.

Superb comfortable apartment right on the slopes

  • 5 of 5

Great skiing and the easiest ever access to the slopes. Very convenient for shops, restaurants and bars. Warm and comfortable with good quality equipment, and flat screen TV/DVD. Super views from the balcony. We'll be back next year.

Brilliant Locaton

  • 4 of 5

You will not get a better location for ski ing. Straight out of the ski locker onto the slopes. There must be 6 lifts taking all over the sk ing area of le plagne. Les Arcs is only 30 mins ski ing. The apartment is a little dated and could do with a revamp. All the shops and bars are only 2 mins walk away.

Appartement très agréable et sur les pistes

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine de ski avec nos 3 enfants. L'appartement est bien situé avec une belle vue plein Sud sur la station de la Plagne Bellecôte. L'accès direct aux pistes par le local à ski est vraiment appréciable.

Côté couchage, c'était parfait avec un espace enfant qui peut être isolé via un astucieux système de cloisons coulissantes une fois le soir venu. Nous avons également pu profiter de la piscine extérieure.

En résumé, c'est un appartement très bien situé et idéal pour une famille de 5 personnes.

La communication avec le propriétaire Martin a été parfaite et ses réponses toujours très rapides. Je recommande.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva, Lyon, Chambery, St. Etienne at 120 Kilometres Nearest Train : Aime La Plagne (snow train and Eurostar) at 10 Kilometres

The apartment is in the perfect location, overlooking the pistes. Three main lifts go directly to the main skiing areas – ranging from glacier to tree-line skiing. A day trip to the furthest reaches of Les Arcs (and back) is easily possible. Bellecote is a well designed centre with over 30 different services, shops and facilities, nearly all of which are under cover. These include restauarants, bars, news and tobac, spa offering sauna and various healthy/beauty courses, laundrette, delis and various take-away outlets (pizzas and roast chicken). There are 4 ski hire shops, ski school and children’s kindergarden – all within 150 meters of the apartment. Outdoor heated pool, cinema, tourist info and ATM are all within Bellecote. Other facilities include 5 snow parks, a half-pipe (in full view of the apartment) and… a run on the Olympic bobsleigh as well as evening skidoo rides out along the pistes.

Other Activities: Night time skidoo trips along pistes

Ski: SKIING : La Plagne offers skiing for all levels. Wide long blues link all villages, whilst the Bellecote gondola leads to Roche de Mio and the Bellecote Glacier.

Reds and blacks offer good long challenging runs. Off piste is good - the run from the Glacier to Les Bauches (1 vertical mile!) is stunning.

Good lifts link Champagny (furthest area from apartment) to the main area. The runs down to Montchavin/Les Coches go through the very attractive wooded slopes. There are plenty of mountain restaurants.

There is a kindergarten and ESF ski school in Bellecote.

Notes:

  • GLACIERS III : The apartment has a superb view facing south over the pistes. There is constant hot water and central heating. In addition to the equipment listed there is an iPod/iPad player. There is WiFi access in the apartment (pay as you go) but it is patchy. There are WiFi facilities in some of the bars in Bellecote centre itself and a dedicated internet cafe in Plagne Centre. The apartment is easy to maintain and is checked after every visit. Access to the piste is easy - from the front door you take the lift to the ground floor where the ski locker (2 metres from the door to the piste) gives direct access to the snow. There is a travelator to get you above all the lifts so that you can ski from the door!
