Les Coches

Les Coches is an intimate, modern wood-and-stone village, which, unlike infamous earlier developments, has been sympathetically designed, to give the atmosphere of a traditional Alpine ski village.

Les Coches is one of the most attractive resorts in the huge La Plagne ski area.  It also has the added attraction of being right next to the spectacular double-decker Vanoise Express cable car which spans the Ponturin Gorge linking La Plagne with Les Arcs to create the Paradiski Area, one of the world's largest.

There’s a selection of shops and restaurants with more at neighbouring Montchavin. The resort is traffic free, and offers children’s clubs and a nursery - so it’s the ideal location for families

For après-ski activities there’s a natural ice skating rink, a games room, snow shoeing, paragliding and marked walking trails.

In La Plagne villages nearby there are other activities, 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 descend in a ‘taxi’ bobsleigh at top speed behind a professional driver or jump in a ‘self-steering’ craft which goes a little slower but still fast enough!

Voted one of the top resorts for Intermediates
