Great apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well appointed in a good location with everything within a short walk. The location is ideal with restaurants, a Spar, lift pass office, ski hire and ski school meeting point just a short distance (less than 2 minutes for all). We found free parking near the apartment and bus stop near by. The nearest piste is approximately 300 meters away so if the conditions are right then genuinely ski in ski out. The kitchen is well equipped with four ring hob, an oven and separate microwave so plenty for those who like self catering . The beds were comfortable and the rooms were warm and cozy. The shower is very nice and there's plenty of hot water. Overall a very well equipped apartment in a good location in one of the best ski areas in France. What's not to like.

Owner's Response: It was great to receive a factual, realistic and complimentary review. As an owner, with an excellent in-resort agent in support, I am committed to equipping my apartment to meet clients expectations . There is just a small correction to make to the review though. Both of the nearest blue pistes, Ecartee and Dou du Praz are within 100m of my apartment block.

Perfect skiing vacation

  • 4 of 5

We are of famlily with two children and enjoyed our stay in La PLagne Soleil very much. The location is very good both for beginners and more advanced skiers. Close to everything.

The apartment is very cosy and we enjoyed watching the provided movies in the evening. The local representant Kate was very helpful.

The only disadvantage was the absence of wifi (or maybe it was for the best because it was a lot of boardgames instead :))

Owner's Response: I am very pleased you enjoyed you stay and found my apartment most convenient for skiing and the choice of other local facilities. Wifi has been a problem, but I understand that the management of the apartment hope to have wifi available for next winter season.

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.
