We stayed in mid January 2014 and had a really good week. The chalet's a solid option, it's not luxury, but has everything you need to enjoy a week exploring La Plagne. Our hosts, despite being trainees, did a very good job welcoming us and were friendly, chatty and helpful during the week. The food was reasonable and kept us fuelled up for a very active week; bedrooms weren't huge but OK; lounge and dining area was nice, and the best thing, really close to the lifts and two pistes to ski back home on! Oh, and the sauna was a good ticket to ease tired muscles. We were in the chalet with a selection of small groups who really clicked and the atmosphere was friendly throughout the trip. We didn't explore Apres options much - too tired from first-to-last-lift skiing - but there seemed to be a few decent places to get drinks if that's your thing. For the price, I'd heartily recommend Bartavelle. La Plagne is a very good resort for intermediates and fresh snow during our stay opened up good off-piste exploring potential (nothing too dangerous of course!).
