The Hotel

The Graciosa is run and operated exclusively by us for snow-loving Brits like you; so you can expect a very warm welcome from our attentive staff. This charming chalet-hotel has a fantastic ski-ambience, with some of the most breathtaking ski-slope views that we’ve ever seen from a hotel restaurant! The huge panoramic windows of the bar, lounge and dining room frame views of the ski pistes and Mont Blanc that’ll leave you itching to get on the snow.

The Graciosa has its own residents bar which is perfect for enjoying an apres-ski drink (or two!) with our freshly made cakes which we serve for afternoon tea.

the Location
The Graciosa is as close to the slopes as you can get. Situated above Plagne Centre, directly on the piste at 2100m. Simply step outside and clip into your skis (or your board) and head down to the main lifts. You can ski right back to the door after an epic day exploring the huge Paradiski area and making the most of La Plagnes’ famously good snow and pistes.

 

The Catering

We believe in eating well when you’re in the mountains. And a great day on the slopes starts with a very important meal each morning in our restaurant. We serve up a proper breakfast, with hot options on most days, to make sure you’re set up for all the snow and adventure you can handle.

And we know that nothing beats a freshly-baked cake and afternoon tea when you get back in from the slopes in the afternoon. Round off the day with a delicious three-course meal. You won’t go hungry staying with us!

  • Continental breakfast every day of the week with hot options on 5 days
  • Afternoon tea, coffee & hot chocolate with freshly-baked cakes (6 days)
  • 3-course à la carte dinners (6 nights)

Ski Weekend la plagne - la plagne Resort Guide

undefined

This bustling village has been popular with boarders and skiers for decades and for a very good reason. The lively vibrant atmosphere combined with being part of ‘The Portes Du Soleil’ – the second largest area in France, gives the perfect ingredients for a holiday to remember. Below you will find some of our personal favourite places in and around Morzine and most of the unmissable events going on this season.


Where to Eat?

Traditional rich Savoie fare featuring local cheeses – fondue, raclette and tartiflette – plus other rich, calorific produce including hearty sausage and dumplings, is widely available both in mountain restaurants and in the villages themselves.  But there are also lots of places to get good pizza, steak and the like.undefined

The best of the mountain restaurants are above the satellite villages, outside the main bowl – Le Forporet above Montalbert stands out for cosiness, wonderful views, a mini-farm and all-day menu of crêpes and other snacks as well as its home-made local lunch and dinner specialities including meats cooked on hot stones.


Where to Party?

While not known for its wild party scene, La Plagne does have a wide choice of bars across its 10 resorts/villages, with Plagne-Centre and Belle-Plagne being the liveliest and Aime-la-Plagne a more peaceful hang-out. Among quirky spots to seek out are Plagne-Centre’s wintry-themed igloo with its animated polar bear and Plagne 1800s La Mine with its old train and mining paraphernalia. There is also bowling and a cinema.

Or you can head for the Blacksheep Igloo Village at Dou du Praz (above the resorts) to spend the night on an ice bed in a 2- or 5-person igloo, after a warming Savoyard meal around an open fire.


What Else to do

La Plagne’s big sell off the slopes is its floodlit, 19-bend bob-sleigh run, constructed for the 1992 Winter Olympics. The self-piloted Bob Raft, which travels at up to 80km/h, takes children 1.3m or taller. Also self-steered, the 90km/h Speed Luge is for ages 16+, while the Bob Racer is strictly for thrill-seekers 18+, with a professional driver at the helm hitting speeds of up to 120km/h.

undefinedHop on the cable-car up to the Bellecôte glacier to explore the ice grotto with its glacial sculptures, and then warm up with a hot chocolate in the café. Or take kids to one of several espaces luges for snowy freeplay, including one right in heart of the resort of Plagne-Centre.

You can also go dog-sledding through the forest, with adults given the chance to take the reins themselves or enjoy ice-skating and swimming in a heated outdoor pool.

Active Pursuits

The madcap après-ski Superluge Derbys, run most evenings in season by the ski school Oxygène, involve 450m of vertical descent from Aime-la-Plagne to La Roche, on sturdy, state-of-the-art sledges in the dark (helmets and headtorches are provided). Participants (who must be 14+) can warm up afterwards over a vin chaud or hot chocolate. Alternatively, Oxygène’s Moonlight Skis are open to any skiers or boarders comfortable on blue runs and include a Savoyarde meal.undefined

Champagny’s artificial ice tower is suitable for everyone from beginners to experienced climbers, with tuition available for kids and adults. Alternatively, a jaunt on an Airboard snow-bodyboard can be sampled with the ESF ski school, by ages 16+/, or they also run rides on a Snakegliss (minimum height 1.2m).

For ages 16+, there’s snow quad-biking and snowmobiling (ages 12+ can ride snowmobiles as a passenger), while all the family can go tobogganing at the dedicated 1.5km piste, Colorado Park. Paragliding with an instructor is popular in La Plagne, or take a helicopter flight over the area or around Mont Blanc. Those 1.35m and up can tackle the treetop adventure course.

Nature

One of the great pleasures of visiting La Plagne is taking peaceful winter walks along the marked trails through the glorious unspoilt countryside, spotting wildlife including ibex, chamois, golden eagles and bearded vultures and perhaps stopping for lunch at a mountain restaurant en route. Some walks are circular, others require you to take a bus or ski-lift home; free maps are available from the tourist office.

Snow-shoe excursions and Nordic skiing are other ways of exploring the surrounds. The Nordic Centre in Peisey-Nancroix, at the entrance to the Vanoise National Park, has cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails plus more walking paths and toboggan routes. You can hire snowshoes from local sports shops, or if you take a guided tour including commentary on local plants and animals and history of the valley, snowshoes and ski poles will be provided.
