Anyone who has ever been on a ski holiday with a tight budget will know what to expect. Plagne Lauze apts are probably the smallest i have been in, but clean and modern. the usual small kitchen area with a kettle, hob and microwave (no toaster!), decent sized bathroom with shower and a toilet (this one did allow the door to be shut). Sleeping quarters consisted of an "L" shaped living / dining area, with a double pullout, single sofa bed with a pull out underneath. Also a decent balcony overlooking the swimming pool, and plenty of room on there for our skis, as we didn't bother with the locker room.
I travelled with my 2 teenage sons, another male adult friend couldnt make it, which would have meant 2 of us sharing the double bed.
1800 is a fairly quiet part of the Plagne villages, I think 2 bars although we didnt go on drinking trips, gift shop, ski shops, Spar, and Mama Mias pizza restaurant which also do take away pizzas. The prices are the usual ski resort extortion, about 12 euro for take out pizza, and add an extra 20% or so to anything from the Spar compared to buying in Moutiers before heading up the mountain. Previous experience meant that I took washing up liquid and cleaning stuff, but it wasnt needed as a welcome pack was provided (washing up liquid, dishcloths, scourer-sponge, dishwasher tabs for the not-yet mentioned dishwasher and tea towel. also 1 toilet roll)
Internet is available in the apartments, paid for on-line by card, I think our was 25 euro for unlimited use for up to 3 different devices.
Skiing in La Plagne is awesome, with loads of wide, easy blues for beginners - intermediates, lots of quiet out of the way areas, again with nice wide blues, there are plenty of reds and blacks for the more experienced, but all the blacks are un-groomed so usually full of leg-busting moguls. Having skied in Les Arcs last year, I prefer La Plagne, just for the sheer range of family-friendly blues available.
Overall, a great experience, great skiing, the accommodation was cosy, but clean and modern, and if I were to return with a group of 4, I would probably opt for a larger apartment to gain a little privacy.
