The tour agency Cap'Vacances has opened an environmentally-friendly club hotel at La Plagne. The holiday village is located in the middle of a natural area, four kilometers from La Plagne-Montalbert.

This hotel is the Rhone-Alpe region's first touristic construction to be labelled as "consuming little energy." It manages to limit its impact on the environment and its use of resources through the combination of several ecological practices. The hotel's water is heated using a wood-fired boiler, that is fed by locally sourced wood chips. Solar panels produce the resort's electricity and wooden weather boarding ensures extra insulation for the ceiling, floors, and walls.

This ski-in ski-out hotel has its own private lift that takes guests directly to the La Grande Plagne ski area. Clients will also enjoy the hotel's own panoramic restaurant with views over the Mont Blanc chain and as well as activities based on sustainable development and local traditions.

The hotel has 94 rooms which can sleep two to four people each.

Cap'Vacances offers visitors the choice between full board stays and all-inclusive stays. A weekly full-board stay includes accommodation, meals, and activities for children and adults. This stay starts at €300 per adult.

The all-inclusive option includes all of the above plus a six-day lift pass. This stay starts at €465 per adult per week.

Reservations can be made through the Cap'Vacances Web site.
