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 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 :))

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.
