La Carlina, Belle Plagne. Tel. + 33 (0)4 79 09 78 46
The Carlina is the only four-star hotel in the whole of La Plagne that is open to all comers, in the normal way. It is an excellent establishment in the village resort of Belle Plagne that has just achieved four stars by amongst other things providing tea for children at four o’clock and a better breakfast for adults. There is a spa, including a covered swimming pool, sauna, a Jacuzzi and hammam. The hotel is right by the ski run and you can put your skis on and go. There is an excellent restaurant and a terrace overlooking the ski runs.
Also in Belle Plagne is the flagship ‘five diamond’ chalet hotel operated by Ski Esprit for family package holidays. The clientele is almost entirely British as are the staff. If you want French quality winter sports in a totally British environment, in a first class hotel, this is the place. There are certain restrictions compared with a normal hotel like no room service and no alcohol in the mini bar. All enquiries and bookings have to go through www.espritski.com. There is a pool and everything is geared to making a family holiday with children a success – and it succeeds.
