It is a more traditional alpine village but has shops, bars, restaurants & ski hire, it is also easy to drive to & has great car parking. One telecabine lift gets you up to the main ski area. La Plagne itself is a very 1970's resort with buildings of the period! This apartment is on the second floor served by a lift with parking right outside. All 3 bedrooms were clean & comfortable & the main kitchen/living room had everything most people would need. There is also a dual aspect balcony with nice views. The block itself is quiet & appears well run. In the evening its just a 2 minute walk to bars & restaurants. I would recommend this apartment. Just one comment, you need to book bedding & towels if you are not taking your own. Apparently the French tend to take their own whereas the Brits don't, especially if they are flying in.
