There are plenty of good value and quality mountain restaurants to choose from serving a mixture of local and international cuisine. Champangy and Montchavin are popular lunch time destinations with regular visitors. The traditional and rustic Au Bon Vieux Temps, and Le Sanuget serve classic Savoyard dishes, whilst restaurants such as Roc des Blanchets and Chalet des Colosses offer breathtaking panoramic views to complement their excellent food. Those wishing to try exquisite pizzas or steaks should try Le Loup Garrou or La Chevrette.
Belle Plagne and Plagne Centre provide the best night life and selection of bars and are popular with groups and couples. The bars here cater for all tastes but for those looking for a more tranquil setting should head for the lower resorts.
There are mountain trails, snowshoeing excursions and dog sledding for those who like the outdoor life, plus fitness centres, saunas and solariums for those who don't. The more adventurous may like to try paragliding or hang-gliding, whilst the 1992 Winter Olympics bobsleigh track is a must!
