Belle Plagne the "Family Plus" Resort

Our top quality Hotel Des Deux Domaines is a fantastic base for a family ski holiday. Belle Plagne has everything skiing families could ask for: a purpose-designed hotel on the slopes, a convenient children’s ski area with enthusiastic and sympathetic English-speaking ski instructors, a pedestrianised village centre, and for skiing ‘en famille’, a plentiful range of wide gentle blue runs surrounding the resort.

Of the ten ‘villages’ which combine to make up La Plagne ski resort, Belle Plagne is not only one of the highest, but also by far the most attractive, with its characterful buildings of local wood and stone, village centre and friendly atmosphere, set against the backdrop of Mont Blanc, makes Belle Plagne for families perfect for your next family ski holiday.
