On entering La Plagne Village, public toilets and local bus stop on the left, take the small road on the left which takes you down to a car park.

Easy access to all ski areas, door to door ski. Flot Bleu situated approx 1 km down the mountain at La Plagne Centre (indicated in some books as a place to stay) small charge (2 euros) for electric, water, grey and black waste. 

 

Update January 2011

They are now charging 10euro per 24 hrs. The area for camping cars is now controlled by entry and exit barriers. On entry you put your vehicle details into the machine and it gives you a card on exit you pay at the machine by credit card. The aire has electric hook up paid for with jetons (tokens). We did see the police moving people who were not parked within the aire.
