Just by the slopes, 5 min to the swimming pool, 10 min to the shops. Ski rental nearby. Wi-Fi in the rooms. The hotel is at the end of the village, in a quiet neighborhood.
The cons: our apartment was too small for 7 people, it is max for 5 people. The kitchen is tiny - for one person. The living room is dark.

Room Tip: Don't take a 5-7 persons apartment for a company of 7 people!

Our 3rd time here in 3 years, stopped in Balcons val cenis 1st year and Le haut last 2 years. We will be back next year!

Accommodation is great, we've stopped in the 12/15 person apartment for the last 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed our stays!

My only criticism is that on arrival you get clean sheets but have to reuse the duvets!

You may want to do a larger grocery shop in Modane on your way to the resort as the local minimarkets are limited and there are not a lot of restaurants either!

L'Arcelle restaurant however in Lanslevillard is excellent but would advise booking a table in advance.

The bowling club is also great for an evenings entertainment as is Le Coupe De Foudre bar in the village for beer at 2 euros a bottle!

All in all a great place for a family ski holiday at a reasonable price!

Great apartment within Les Balcons, ideal for a family of 5.

The kitchen was small but more than adequate. Bathroom only had a bath with a shower attachment. However, it was always warm throughout the apartment and plenty of hot water all the time.

A typical French Savoir ski apartment with Ski In/Ski Out and within easy access of lifts and Ski School.

We have stayed in a number of Balcons apartments before so new what to expect with regard to the basic nature of the accommodation but was still slightly disappointed with this one.

We had the 12/15 person chalet. As with all French accommodation I would not want to fill it to capacity. There were 9 adults and 2 children and you would not want too many more people than that.

Positives

Location - walk out of boot room through car park and up a small slope - approx. 10m to a piste to ski down to main lift - a button lift drops you off in the same place if you do not want to walk up the hill - so can be virtually ski in ski out if you want. There is also a small sledging area here which the kids loved.

Free access to swimming pool in the resort.

Comfy beds.

Sauna - The sauna facilities were very good.

Car Parking - Indoor car parking at a reasonable price.

Negatives

Only one person on reception in half term week so over an hour queue to check in.

Only wifi in reception area which was quite slow (this is well documented on website so knew about it in advance)

Soundproofing - Awful sound proofing in the apartment. It felt like every noise could be heard from every room in the apartment.

Odd layout - No door on one of the 3 bed rooms on the mezzanine - made the sound issue even worse.

Tired accommodation - paint chipped - wall fixtures hanging off walls, plug sockets damaged etc.

Rubbish pillows.

No wine glasses.

All in all we had a good week however would probably not return here unless we knew it had been refurbished.

We booked the 12-15 person apartment with another family, 9 of us in total and the apartment could have slept another 4 people comfortably. There are three twin rooms and two triple rooms. The property is fairly basic, you collect clean bedding and towels and make up your own beds and you are required to do an inventory of equipment and a clean at the end of the week with an inspection before leaving. You will need to make sure you bring things like binbags, dishwasher tablets loo rolls etc as these are not provided and the nearest decent size supermarket is about 15 mins drive away. However, we loved our holiday here and it was a great first family ski holiday, with a boot room in the basement to leave all your equipment, a decent size table for family meals with plenty of plates and crockery glasses etc and a large balcony with views over the mountains. The location meant that a short walk from the boot room would get you to the slope down to the cablecar and we found the skiing very varied and enjoyable for a mixed ability group. We will be returning next year but bringing a few more provisions with us next time!
