Montchavin

The massive ‘Paradiski’ area is one of our favorite places in the Alps!

The caravaneige at Montchavin gives easy access to the whole area, either directly up the mountain towards La Plagne or across the impressive Vanoise Express gondola over to Les Arcs.

The campsite is a short walk from the main Montchavin chairlift and is well equipped with pitches looking out over the valley towards Bourg Saint Maurice and a well equipped facilities block with hot showers, a family room and a gear drying room.

The people that run the site are really friendly and offer loads of tips on things to do and see locally. 

Our favorite bit is that a local restaurant comes by once a week and makes fresh Pizza to order! Super tasty!

Prices start at €17 per night for two people and EHU is extra.

At an altitude of 1250m the snow can sometimes arrive late to this part of Paradiski BUT there is a handy free bus that comes regular to transfer you up the mountain to Les Coches if needed.

A great little spot with stunning views!

 

This is the view from the pitches down the valley:-

  1. Looks great, we stayed in huttopia bourg st Maurice last winter for a week, great campsite, shuttle to slopes, immaculate showers. Will be out there for 6 weeks from early Jan, will try Montchavin. Anything I need to know?
    Thanks for posting

    • Hi Roger, Thanks for the comment. We have also stayed at the Huttopia (off season) a few times and really enjoyed it. You are right the showers are great!
      Our advice would be to book in advance for the Montchavin site. We have never struggled to get in but they can get busy. They have a great pizza place that comes round once a week and cooks to order and the site is only a couple of minutes walk to the center and the main shops. Due to the altitude 1250m the snow can arrive a little later in the season but we were there the first week of Jan last year and there was plenty! If its not ski back due to lack of snow then there is the free shuttle from Les Coches (another great secret resort) where you can find the Vanoise express that links Le Plagne to Les Arcs. Other than that the main lift from Montchavin is a great link up to the top of Les Coches. On site there is a great heated communal space and kit drying rooms (although we never used them) and they provide wifi. Showers are good (not Huttopia standard) but hot water and nice and clean. Last but not least the view down the vally is fab! Much nicer than the supermarket from Huttopia 😛 and its lovely and quiet. Have a fab time and let us know how you get on! 🙂
