The construction of La Plagne (Eng.: Alpine Meadows) as a ski region first began in 1960. Just one year later, the first lifts began working and in the course of the year the artificial villages were created around Plagne Centre. After beginning with these basic purpose-built buildings, the architecture began to take a new direction to smaller, nicer apartment buildings. Today there are ten stations, each with a different visage, so there is something to suit everyone. 

This is best observed in the evening in the cosy little lodges, as they begin to serve the local savoury dishes, and in La Plagne Centre where the party scene comes into swing. The ten stations are connected throughout the day until 1:00 am through a complimentary shuttle bus, and occasionally with gondolas.
