The county Champagny, located in the French Départment Savoy, is luckily somewhat off the beaten mass tourism track. Unlike many French resorts Champagny has managed to retain its Alpine village authenticity and architectural integrity. Guests can experience the wonderful rustic-comfy cosiness and unspoiled ancient beauty which can be considered a rare treat! The village is located at an altitude of 1250m and gives access to the ski resort La Plagne which features a total of 225 km of trails and 108 lift facilities. The gondola takes you within 8 minutes up to 2000m. From there you have an abundance of diverse terrain at your disposal as well as terrain parks and even a halfpipe for snowboarders and “Air and Style” fans.
