I cannot say enough good things about La Plagne, Plagne Soleil and Le Mont Soliel Appartments. The resort was fantastic, Plagne Soleil was perfect and the appartment had everything we needed. I've been skiing lots when I was younger but I always remember difficult slopes and nightmares struggling to walk to the slopes carrying skis etc. This holiday was completely different. It was amazing and I can't wait to go back next year.
We booked through Thompson Ski on line. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and we booked to stay in Le Mont Soleil Appartments in Plagne Soleil. The apparment was just what we needed. Simple self catering but perfect. It had one double bedroom and two beds in the lounge. We were a bit worried about that at first but we were so shattered after a full days skiing we slept like logs every night. We had a little kitchen and eating area and we cooked most nights. The balcony over looked our blue run just outside our back door and we could sit in the morning in the sunshine waiting for the button lift man to arrive so we could be first down there! There is a ski room with lockers to store equipment. We put our boots on, stepped out of the door and onto the piste. Put our skis on and shooped down to the lift.
We went to nearly all of the villages in La Plagne and we definitely felt that Plagne Soliel was the best for location location location. It is high up so the snow is good. It has a lovley feel to it as it is small. It is one of the newer villages but it is also the prettiest. It has a couple of restaurants, a good bar (Monica's) an excellent Spa to get croissants every morning and ski hire shops. There is also a fab pizza take away place. AS the name suggests it is sunny all day. The button lift is meters away from the back door and at the top you can choose to ski to the west or the east. Or you can miss the button lift and ski 2 mins into Plagne Centre where the chair lifts are. Most of the runs are lovley wide blue ones. However there were a few blue ones that we agreed should be more like difficult reds! But we managed them. There wasn't a place you couldn't get to on a blue run. We even went over to Les Arc's for a day, but would not stay there for a whole week.
One evening we went on the Bob Sled run - it is a thrill not to be missed. Another evening we went skidooing which was excellent fun.
Everything about the holiday was fantastic . Thompson ski was great, they were there to pick us up at the right times and places they arranged bob sledding and skidooing for us and recommended good restaurants to go to.
I would highly recommend La Plagne for people who enjoy ski in / ski out skiing, intermediate and easy slopes, friendly atmosphere and good snow.
