Christmas decorations have started to appear in the shops, meaning that now’s the time to start preparations for the festive period (especially if you have little ones!). If you want to treat the family to a special Christmas and something a little different this year, then I highly recommend spending the holidays in the snowy La Plagne. Chalets serve as fan-tastic holiday havens, and there are many cosy and family-friendly ones to choose from. Additionally, the resort is always transformed into a winter wonderland. What could be better than a magical white Christmas?

I adore the holiday season in La Plagne, and families always seem to have an unforget-table celebration. Here is what you can expect over the Christmas period.

Atmosphere

It is impossible not to get caught up in festive excitement, as everybody is on their holiday and the entire area looks like something out of a Christmas film! This creates an electric atmosphere that simply cannot be matched back at home.

Decorations

Christmas decorations and lights are placed all over the resort, transforming the area and creating a festive vibe. There is also a gigantic Christmas tree in the centre, which will take your breath away.

Skiing

Skiing in La Plagne is an absolute must, and you can even do this on Christmas Day. It is a great way to get some exercise before indulging the rest of the day! The ski lifts and schools operate as normal, but there’s a unique atmosphere in the air. Be sure to look out for skiing Santas!

Christmas Events

La Plagne has many cheerful Christmas events that the whole family can enjoy. Im-merse yourself in the festivities by checking out a fun play or show, or spend time trawl-ing the bustling Christmas markets. Here you can discover all kinds of great gifts or find something tasty to eat.

Santa Visits

No Christmas is complete without seeing jolly old Saint Nick, and he always stops by on his sleigh to visit the kids and bring plenty of festive cheer (and presents, of course!).

Fireworks and Street Parades

Another reason that the atmosphere is so spirited is because wonderful street parades take place around La Plagne. These colourful, lively and often musical parades really unite the village and bring people together. There are also brilliant firework displays that are set against the stunning backdrop of the Alps and the twinkling blanket of stars above.

Restaurants

Need another fantastic motive for coming for Christmas? You don’t have to cook or wash up! Simply book a table at one of the many terrific restaurants, which have special festive menus with traditional dishes and all the trimmings. If you want to enjoy Christmas dinner at a restaurant, be sure to book in advance.

It gets better: the cosy accommodation is perfect for a snug Christmas in La Plagne. Chalet catering is available as well, which is convenient if you want to take a break from cooking and have all of your food taken care of.

Gifts

Whilst you may be able to find a few presents at the markets and around town, it is im-portant to be aware that the shops are quite limited, so it is best to bring your big presents with you.

There really is nothing quite as special as Christmas in La Plagne. Chalets in the area couldn’t be more inviting, and a merry atmosphere spreads throughout the village, which becomes a winter wonderland during this special time of the year.
