We stayed here for 2 weeks in Dec 2011 including Xmas in a 3 bed, 2 bathroom apartment advertised as an 8 person apartment. It was booked through the La Plagne Reservations Service on the La Plagne website and as a late booking had a good discount.
We were 3 adults and 2 older kids so quite spacious for us. Apartment was not 4 star but was value for money. Not enough comfy seats..only one sofabed. TV had a DVD built in. No extra charges for us except for bread orders and tourist tax. Sheets,towels and TV remote were provided. There were quite a lot of broken/ poorly maintained items. We asked for an inventory and there were no problems on departure. Kitchen adequate for proper cooking but no oven and my personal pet hate no mugs... expresso cups or cereal bowls only. Swimming pool was small and very dark in evenings with no chairs/ recliners. Jacuzzis never worked, sauna was OK . Reception were helpful but queues were long on first and last days. Apartment was clean on arrival and we had to clean it on leaving or could pay a cleaning charge.
Ski locker area leads directly onto a blue piste (Dou du praz). However to return to the ski lockers without walking means skiing the Dou du praz from the top. This piste is only accessible by taking the Colosses BUTTON lift from Plagne Bellecote which, though not marked on the piste map as a difficult button lift, has a long steep section making it pretty difficult for kids, beginners or snowboarders. Access back to the apartments is more generally by the Ecarte blue piste meaning a walk across the square and down a flight of slippery steps and across the road...maybe 50-100m to the building and then down in lift, through doors etc to ski lockers. The square is also the start/end point used by the ski school and contains the spar shop etc. so you might have to walk to here anyway.
The car park is underground down a steep short slope (clearance exactly 1.50m: SUV with roofbox was very close) and you need to pick up a pass from reception to access it. It had snowed heavily on our arrival day (chains on all up the valley) and the outside and underground carpark was inaccessible for the first evening.
