Super ski apartment Les Drus

  • 5 of 5

We rented this superbly-sited apartment over the Christmas period.The property was clean,very well-equippedand furnished with all the necessaries for a successful self-catering holiday and had adequate space for a family of 4/5.The view from the balcony(which has plenty of room for ski storage)overlooks one of the local pistes and was perfect for doing some people-watching while enjoying an apres-ski cognac or two.

The highly-efficient heating system was great for drying off our wet gear and there was plenty of storage space for clothes,boots etc.At the entrance to the building there is a well-stocked Spar which satisfied all our needs and nearby,within metres of the store,the ski-pass office is located.Also on the ground floor of the building is an excellent and reasonably-priced family-run restaurant serving local Savoyard cuisine.Access to several pistes is a short ski away from this genuine ski-in/ski-out location.We received a warm and friendly greeting on arrival from the owner's agents,Bob and Maureen Morris who have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the La Plagne area.The apartment really couldn't have been more conveniently situated and we're considering returning next winter.I would highly recommend this property.

Perfect for a family of 4

  • 4 of 5

Previous experience of ski apartments has been cramped, however I was very pleased with the intelligent use of space in this property. The bedroom and sleeping areas were perfect for my family with 2 young boys and we loved having the use of the DVD player to watch movies in the evenings. As a keen cook, I also enjoyed being able to prepare evening meals in the kitchen which again, was much better than stocked with equipment than others I've used. Our arrival date meant a terrible journey into La Plagne (as reported on BBC News!) however, once we finally arrived, we were warmly welcomed by the local service agent Kate and Alan who settled us in. The unfortunate snow conditions for our drive in meant fabulous conditions for the first few days of skiing, made simple with local ski hire facilities and ski in ski out access from Plagne Soleil.

In the interest of fairness, the only drawbacks I can think are

1. Lack of a bath to soothe muscles after long days skiing. However I must say that the shower room was brand new and crystal clean.

2. No Wifi despite this being mentioned on arrival. Though 3G was reasonable all around La Plagne - though be sure to be on a good roaming package.

3. Underground parking fairly expensive, and outdoor parking elusive to find.

All in all a superb stay that I would gladly repeat, and recommend to others.

Lovely compact apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment over New Year 2014 - 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. It was compact but very well equipped and we found it very comfortable and cosy. It was well located, on the piste and with a well equipped spar in the development. The pizza takeaway and restaurant at Monica's were reasonably priced. We enjoyed watching the DVDs supplied. Firework show at Plagne Bellecote at new year was superb and worth the packed bus journeys. All in all we had a lovely ski holiday in this clean and welcoming apartment.

Superb, beautifully presented apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully furnished, very clean apartment in an excellent location with doorstep ski-ing included!

Surrounded by good facilities - shop, ski hire, ski school, restaurants - what more could you wish for?

The owners also provide video and dvd players with a good selection of films to watch.

The agents, Bob and Maureen are extremely helpful and you are sure of a good welcome on arrival.

This is a little gem of an apartment and can be highly recommended.

2011 Ski holiday

  • 3 of 5

Excellent location in terms of accessing slopes, ski school, very good supermarket, ski hire shop.

One thing that was not communicated to us pre-arrival was the nature of the hot water system. This is not the apartment for you if you like soaking in a hot bath after a hard day's skiing! On arrival, we were advised that the hot water tank is extremely small ('if you take a 15-minute shower, no-one else will have any hot water') and takes up to 5 hours to re-fill! In practice, this meant that we just managed to get 4 short showers in succession.

Apartment was clean and very well-equipped. It's is at the rear of the residence - the balcony overlooks the car park, a section of one rarely-used piste and one mountainside, as shown in the picture (view from balcony). It doesn't have views over the mountain range, chairlifts etc. The double bedroom is very small - it's only possible to access one side of the bed.

La Plagne is an excellent ski area for teenagers - good range of runs and also easy to access Les Arcs via Vanoise Express. Approx 2-3 hrs drive from Grenoble.

Owner's Response: My agents in La Plagne inform me that hot water was an issue with these clients as soon as the family arrived and obviously had baths or showers and used all the hot water in the tank ! The immersion volume is standard for the size of apartment, but cannot provide the capacity that visitors from the UK are used to at home. It is clearly unreasonable to expect to enjoy the extravagance of a 15 minute shower ! This client was made fully aware of the size of the apartment before booking but clearly did not appreciate that the area rented is proportional to the rental that one is prepared to pay . This client complimented the apartment for its excellent location, cleanliness and being well equipped - key factors for a convenient skiing holiday. As regards being at the rear of the block overlooking one mountainside, a piste and three floors above a small free car park (where you can unload and load your car ) it is important to realise that the front side of this block faces onto the front of Le Cervin apartment block. I know which view I prefer when I am in the Alps on a skiing holiday ! The piste referred to incidentally, is no more than 50 yds away and conveniently skis straight down to the start of La Bergerie express chairlift linking to Bellecote, Belleplagne, Champagny or into Plagne Centre for access to the Grande Rochette cablecar & Montalbert. Overall the vast majority of my clients appreciate the qualities of my apartment and as one can see by viewing the availability for winter 2011/12, my apartment is already 45% booked for next winter season, many of which are rebookings. Need I say more.
