We stayed here for one week via ski world, having sole use of the chalet (18 in our group) - All being around 25yrs old. We have stayed in catered chalets for snowboarding weeks before, and while not being fussy, I found the chalet to be over priced for what you receive.
ski in/out was fantastic, could be closer, chalet clarine is on the ground floor, out one door and on the piste. Location was also excellent for being 3min walk to gondola and to main bar/shop area of belle plagne, gondola going to plagne bellecote, which has a bus service to plagne centre etc.
Bar/restaurant downstairs was very reasonable and we found the food to be of a good standard.
Constant supply of hot water (which other chalets have struggled with) and jacuzzi baths in the bathrooms were a good touch.
Chalet always warm.
Swimming pool, sauna and hot tub were fantastic, and a well stocked 'gym' room if you have the energy!
Chalet 'dated' and grubby due to age. Log burner looked to be falling apart, sofas looked dirty, kitchen didn't seem to have enough utensils for all guests (hosts had to wash up between courses).
Table wasn't really big enough for 18 guests and the chairs were all falling apart, needing constant 'banging' back into place.
Bedding/duvet covers were torn and the duvets were different sizes, one guests seemed a child size, one pillow per guest which were very lumpy and small, led to most having bad nights sleep and sore necks.
Most bathrooms did not have shower curtains, making showers impossible for some guests due to the floors becoming like swimming pools.
Doors do not have individual locks.
All these issues could be fixed if ski world could pay attention to customers comments, as the chalet has huge potential due to size and location.
If you want a quieter night request for rooms 6 or 7, situated away from social areas.
