COMPLETELY REFURBISHED. High quality fittings and decor, fantastic fitted kitchen & luxury bathrooms, extra long 2 metre beds etc. Chalet Sapiniere is just 400m from the pistes and village centre. In the morning the cable car, ESF Office and pistes are just a 5 minute walk. You can leave your equipment in the ski store in the rental shop in the village at the end of the day. You can then wander back to the chalet without struggling in heavy boots and having to carry your skis and poles. You might even be tempted to drop into the Timbale Bar for a bit of après ski on the way back. This is a luxury, stylish chalet with a high spec. It has a mixture of traditional and modern décor, with aged wood panelling and smooth plaster finishes. It has a new open plan kitchen with brand new appliances and the spacious living and dining room has large picture windows and sliding doors onto the elevated terrace and balcony. The living room has a wood burner and plenty of comfy seating. During the day, sunlight streams in through the south facing windows and patio doors giving a tremendous feeling of light and space.
It has amazing facilities for a self catering chalet with access to a beautiful SHARED Indoor Swimming Pool, Jacuzzi and Fitness Suite. Also a large games room with table tennis and table football.
Champagny Village: Champagny is an authentic mountain village with a character that still reflects its ancient farming origins. Tiny paths link old farms and chalets in a village where traditional Savoie life and modern tourism mesh seamlessly together. The village has a lively atmosphere with shops, bars & restaurants within easy walking distance.
Skiing & Boarding at Champagny: A cable-car whisks skiers to the Champagny ski area (2000m) in just 7 minutes which is where you’ll find the nursery slopes. Three brilliant long blue runs are great to learn on and progress to while advanced skiers can zip on to the superb off piste either side. You have a choice of two red runs to take you back to the village at the end of the day. Champagny offers direct access into La Plagne, but is less busy, so is much quieter and more pleasant, especially during peak weeks.
Skiing & Boarding at La Plagne: The whole ski area covers 210km of finely groomed pistes in one of the biggest interlinked ski areas in Europe. With over 100 blue and red runs to cruise down, most skiers and boarders can travel vast distances around the 11 villages. Some very long black runs descend the Bellecote Glacier (3250m) both on and off piste, into the pretty tree lined valley of Montchavin. There are also numerous mogul fields in the area and a board park in 'Plagne Soleil'.
