As a seasoned traveller to the Alps this accomodation is some of the most spacious we have stayed in, unless you want to rent an appartment for 8 people for 4 of you to share. We travelled with a 14 and 16 year old so space is a real issue if you are doing the self-catering thing... It is very new and feels it. The kitchen is a good size, and it has a real homely feel.
It is located on the way up to Plagne1800 from La Roche. The driveway to the property is a little steep, and whilst it does get cleared by a big JCB you will need winter tyres or chains if you have a snowfall. We have a Land Rover with winter tyres and getting up and down the drive wasn't a problem.
You can sort of ski in / ski out albeit along narrow paths through the trees and if confidence isn't your thing then it isn't really going to work out... nothing worse than starting and ending the day with a family argument !! However why would you even bother. We put the skis and boots in the car and drive up and park under the lifts ...it is soooo much easier. there is lots of free parking if you drive up through Plagne Centre toward Plagne Village or Plagne Soleil. We were there over New Year, and despite the resort being very busy we always found a parking space, not bad considering my kids don't surface till about 10am ....
The skiing is very good.... some will say not challenging enough but it is fine for us and we have been skiing many years and 4 times to this resort. Get the Discovery pass and go over to Les Arcs for one day... it makes a nice change and is a bit of an adventure, but get going early to make the most of your time over there.
The best mountain restaurant is easily Borsilier over the back of De Roche De Mio in Champgny... great terrace and lovely food.
Eat out in Belle Plagne.. either Face Nord or La Godille or in Plagne 1800 at either Le Loup Blanc or La Cantine (great Pizza)
All in all a nice place to stay.... the wifi also keeps the kind happy and 'connected' to the outside world.... …
