We stayed here with our children aged almost 4 and almost 6. Chris and Miranda were very welcoming, starting from the initial booking with quick responses. Our apartment was spacious, two bedrooms with two ensuite bathrooms, two small balconies (handy for airing out ski jackets). Showers and hot water were all great, kitchen with dishwasher. We didn't use the hot tub and sauna but these are also available. The nearby cosy bar (in a separate building therefore not remotely disturbing) had wifi and games with a large selection of DVDs and books to borrow and meals can be ordered in advance to eat there if you wish. The croissants / pains au chocolat and baguette delivered daily in the morning were also a very nice touch as was the welcome pack with jam, local cheese, tea bags, milk and even a bottle of wine.
We booked our kids into morning ski lessons with the Ecole de Ski Français (ESF) which start at 10am and finish at 12, so in a few mornings took advantage of the child care facility Les Petits Montagnards to drop them off early. They were then taken to their lessons by their carer and we picked them up after a morning's ski. This all worked out fine. Nursery slopes also at Le Plan with a small green piste for learned before taking the chairlift for blue pistes. There's also a small luging area near Club Piou Piou (for little children).
Access to a large ski area is just 10 mins drive away from Chalet La Giettaz at Le Plan - either using the chalet's minibus service or using the ski bus which stops just outside the chalet. (We had a car with us so didn't do this - Le Plan even has a free parking area). There is a small grocery shop in Le Plan, or one in Le Flumet a bit further down the road, or a very large Intermarché in Praz sur Arly.
From Geneva Airport it's about 1.5 hours going over the Col des Aravis (without traffic) and all in all of you're looking for a quiet holiday then this is a much better option than pricey Megève, with access to the same ski area.
