Hassle-free family ski is the concept here, so think ski passes and gear ‘done for you’, fabulous in-chalet dining and plenty of fun for kids of all ages. Holiday with friends or make new ones.
Babies and small children enjoy a playful programme of fun in the fully-equipped playroom, and out and about in the snow whilst mini-skiers meet at the ski school just minutes away from the chalet. Leaving you to take time out to explore the breath-taking Paradiski ski area around Plagne 1800.
Later on, reunite for high tea and cake and to share the adventures of the day.
Chalet Nicole offers a baby listening service so bedtime for the small people leaves mums and dads free to hop into the hot tub or to reassemble for an aperitif in front of the fire and a hearty three-course meal.

Chalet Nicole has the most welcoming atmosphere and has been designed especially for families. It is only five minutes' walk to the ski lift and has shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance.
The chalet sleeps up to 30 people in eight bedrooms - six family suites and two twin rooms set over three floors. One of the family suites can sleep up to six people in three separate rooms. All bedrooms have space for a cot. Please note that some bedrooms have a supplement charge.
On the ground floor is a spacious living and dining room with feature fireplace as well as a large separate playroom. The hot tub is on the first floor balcony and on the lower ground floor there is a sauna, steam room and ski room with heated ski boot warmers.
Your chalet stay includes:
If you have a baby, you can use the kitchen’s facilities to make up milk or use the steriliser at any time of day – Hipp Organic baby food is available, and the chef can puree food for you, but you will need to bring your own milk formula.
The chalet staff have Wednesdays off, so you will need to provide your own food – there are restaurants right by your chalet, perfect for an evening meal, if you choose to take advantage of the babysitting service.
Plagne 1800 is ideal for families as it is a lovely village with a quieter and more family-focused atmosphere than most ski resorts; although, it still has high altitude skiing, and the chalets are right on the slopeside.
There are a few welcoming bars and restaurants in La Plagne, including Le Loup Blanc, which is just a short walk from the chalets, and is ideal for lunch or a mid-afternoon snack.
Le Petit Chaperon Rouge is directly opposite the chalet; inside, it has a cosy atmosphere with an open fire, and it serves authentic Savoyard food.
A must-do activity is a visit to the La Plagne Bobsleigh, La Plagne’s own bobsleigh track, which was originally built when France hosted the 1992 Winter Olympics. You can have a go on the bobsleigh, with either four of you, or three of you with an experienced sleigher.
If you fancy a swim, take the free shuttle bus to La Plagne’s outdoor, heated swimming pool, which has views of the surrounding mountaintops.
