Our Old Schoolhouse B&B is strategically positioned to explore the wonders of the northern French Alps. Situated between some of the most famous Tour de France Alpine passes (Col de La Madeleine, Cormet de Roselend, Iseran, Petit Saint Bernard) cyclists and motorcyclists will find some of the worlds most spectaclular and traffic free mountain roads. Walkers and hikers will enjoy, through glaciers and waterfalls, the trails of the Ruitor, Beaufortain and Vanoise mountain ranges.
Have you ever tried a Via Ferrata?
Easy! Except if you're afraid of heights. You climb a shear vertical cliff, stepping on and hanging off of steel pegs sealed in the rock. Modern technology makes it risk free, with your harness permanently attached to a cable. Inaugurated last year, La Plagne is now equipped with a very enjoyable Via Ferrata called Les Bourtes. 1h30mn of climbing will take you from 2,300 to 2,600 m of elevation.
