Montchavin: a natural setting
A true alpine cocoon, the village of Montchavin is an authentic, typically Savoyard destination. Situated at 1250 metres above sea level, it is nestled in the heart of the forest, in the Haute-Tarentaise valley in Savoie. Its charming village plunges you into an idyllic universe to spend a snowy holiday close to nature and a preserved environment. Its architecture made of wooden and stone chalets reflect strong ancestral traditions and a rich heritage.
Close to the resort of Les Coches (located at 1450 m), Montchavin is an ideal destination to access the ski slopes while enjoying the mountain charm. Thanks to its privileged location, this village offers you a privileged view of the highest peak in Europe, the Mont-Blanc. Montchavin has preserved its mountain soul with its beautiful slate roofs and its wooded environment. In family or with friends, the resort of Montchavin offers you to live an unforgettable skiing holiday thanks to a wide range of activities.
Founded in 1972, the village of Montchavin, at the time, lived only from its agricultural activity and suffered the consequences of the rural exodus. If in the 1970s the village had only a handful of inhabitants, it is thanks to the mayor of Bellentre, Augustre Mudry, that the resort is today a renowned tourist destination. His desire was to take advantage of the boom in winter tourism and the democratisation of winter sports. With the help of renowned architects and town planners, they launched the renovation of the village together.
Today, Montchavin is one of the 11 destinations of the resort of La Plagne: Champagny en Vanoise, Plagne Villages, Plagne Soleil, Belle Plagne, Plagne Aime 2000, Plagne Centre, Plagne Bellecôte, Plagne 1800, Plagne Montalbert and Plagne Vallée.
