Well-furnished and clean apartments, with good facilities and only a short walk from ski runs. The resort run a free bus service around the local area which stops in La Plagne; 1800, Centre and Bellecote which proved a welcome relief at the end of a tough day skiing!
However on the 4th day in the apartment, New Years day no less, we entered the ski lockers to a scene of devastation. No less than 27 locker doors had been ripped clean off their hinges and only common and/or child's skis had been left. This was obviously a well organised gang, they had smashed the lock on the outside of the apartment which stupidly advertises the fact that it is a ski locker room, they knew that only five police patrol the entire La Plagne area and that Pierre Vacance Residences are severely lacking in security. We were one of the first groups down to the locker room in the morning and headed straight to the hotel reception where we explained the situation to the receptionist. She told us she would send a technician and turned away to continue her other tasks!
We couldn't believe it, we told her she needed to call the police as it was a large theft. As it turns out locker rooms are prime targets for thieves and thefts are nothing unusual, but that should not mean that hotel staff should not offer any sympathy for what was an extremely infuriating situation.
The hotel states skis MUST be stored in the locker rooms but then in the small print take no responsibility for skis that are left there! 3 days later and the hotel have still not sorted out the locker room, the only improvement is that some of the doors are up off the floor!
Lesson learnt, from now on we will store all ski equipment in the apartments!
