Time to pack your bags for skiing? You have chosen the superb domain of La Plagne: you are one of the connoisseurs and you are looking for the best for your hotel. But you are still hesitating. Here’s our list of criteria to make sure you don’t make a mistake and that your ski holiday is a real success!
1. Choose a Zen resort
If you have chosen La Plagne, you know that it is one of the largest ski areas in Europe. But it is also one of the richest in terms of possibilities, as it is part of Paradiski®: an area of 425 km of runs through forests, dolines and glaciers where all levels are represented. Not to mention the mosaic of villages, 11 in all, that dot the resort. So which one to choose?
We have a soft spot for Belle-Plagne, the aptly named. Built on the mountainside in the Savoyard architectural tradition, in stone, wood and lauze, it is a human-sized resort, entirely pedestrian. Your cars will be parked in one of the covered car parks serving your hotel. For shopping, everything is done on foot in the many shops of the village, where you will also find bars and restaurants with a warm atmosphere. You can even reach Plagne Bellecôte by cable car for free, to enjoy its ice rink or an escape game. Belle-Plagne is south-facing and enjoys plenty of sunshine. It is the ideal place to recharge your batteries in La Plagne!
2. A hotel at the foot of the slopes
For an ideal ski holiday, you should also think about the location of your hotel within the resort. Being at the foot of the slopes is non-negotiable. In Belle-Plagne, the Hotel Carlina has a privileged location: you push the door and you are on the slopes. A real ski in, ski out start! You can store your skis in your private ski locker after a great day on the slopes.
3. With a magical view
What an incomparable pleasure it is to open the shutters every morning to a dreamlike landscape. You don’t want to miss out on this. At the Carlina, each room has a south-western exposure and a breathtaking view of the mountain from a balcony or terrace.
4. Real comfort
At the Carlina, you can enjoy 4-star comfort whether you come as a couple or as a family. Standard, superior or suite, each room is spacious, comfortable and tastefully decorated. But also equipped with an LCD TV and internet access for your cocooning evenings. The special family rooms also offer a children’s area so that everyone can feel at ease.
5. A luxury spa
If a day of skiing without a Jacuzzi is like a cake without whipped cream, then you should also choose your hotel according to its spa. At the Carlina you will find a solarium, an indoor swimming pool with a view of the peaks, a large Jacuzzi, a hammam and a sauna to relax. To prolong the pleasure you can also book body and face treatments with Pure Altitude mountain herbal products. And to keep in shape, you will enjoy a fitness room!
6. Quality, convivial spaces (and a gourmet restaurant)
A pleasant hotel means privacy, of course, but also quality convivial spaces to meet up. At the Carlina, you can sip a cocktail, have brunch, lunch or dinner in an elegant and cosy room where wood and leather dominate. You can also choose to do the same on the sunny terrace facing the mountains. In the restaurant, you can enjoy a refined Savoyard-inspired cuisine, proposed by the chef Thibault Schach and his team. Their trademark: low temperature cooking.
7. What about my four-legged friend?
Are you an animal lover who doesn’t want to leave your four-legged friend in a kennel during your holiday? Some hotels accept pets with prior agreement. This is the case of the Hotel Carlina.
