We took a party of 6 adults and 1 infant to Village Montana in Jan/Feb 2006. The apartments are in a fantastic location and you can ski out of the locker room and onto the slope. We had some semi- and non-skiiers and they were able to watch all the skiiers and ski schools from the balcony of the apartment as well as sit outside the restaurant enjoying the atmosphere with the skiiers.
The apartment itself was spotless and the kitchen well appointed. Bedrooms a little small but one big enough to fit the cot. Bathroom lovely apart from the odd French habit of shower wall attachments which mean you have to hold the shower head. Staff were very friendly and helpful and there is also a pool table.
One of our party took lessons for adaptive skiing and we were very impressed by the friendliness and facilities for these 'special' skiiers.
You can ski all over the 3 valleys and need not do the same run twice. We made it all the way to Courchevelle and back on one day. Unfortunately we didn't have great snow when we went but still managed to ski every day and you have the advantage of popping over the mountain to see if things are better on the other side. Our tutor told us that most seasons its usually the other valley's skiiers that come to VT.
There are several supermarkets and lots of restaurants and pubs, shops, skidooing and snow shoe walking even hiring fondu sets were available. Not exactly cheap in VT ... but then I guess that is the case most places where they have captive audiences.
All in all a great place and we'd go again.
