Me too, also, but I wouldn't stay in the Planibel at La Thuile - very Eastern European!!!

I stayed at the Planibel in La Thuile - it's absolutely fine, as long as you go there with the correct expectations.

We had one of the self-catered apartments to sleep 2 - there was a basic kitchenette with a sink, fridge, microwave and 2-ring hob, plus a few kitchen items - saucepan, frying pan, plates etc. The apartment was clean. It wasn't big, but we didn't spend too much time in it - we were there to ski after all!

There's not much in the way of apres-ski - there was a bar which got reasonably busy, and then a sort of pub type place which was downstairs from the main area - it had a pool table etc, and they did very good freshly made pizzas. we spent quite a bit of time in there.

Overall - the Planibel is very good if you are on a budget and not too bothered about having wild apres ski.

There were a few Russians around, but so what! They didn't take over the place or anything.

the best thing about it is the proximity to the main lift - it's right next door. You can walk out of your apartment and be skiing your first run within 5-10 mins. I haven't been to Brides-les-Bains, but I have heard that it is way down in the valley, and you would be looking at a 30-45 min cable car each morning and each afternoon to get to the ski area.

I didn't mean anything to do with Russian clientele!

I thought the Planibel was a soulless, monolithic slab of a building, reminiscent of an apartment block in Potsdam or Belgrade!
