Excellent apartments, good quality interior and fittings, great location just next to the slopes, a short walk down the hill into Vallandry village, and lovely views right across the valley.
We have stayed here twice, once in a small apartment for 6 in 2011, and the second time in a larger apartment for 10 in 2012. The small apartments are quite small, but the larger one was fine, although the seating area was a bit limited. Vallandry is in a really great location which allows you to explore the whole of the Les Arcs ski area, or you can take the Vanoise express across to La Plagne. The main village is OK but not particularly pretty.
On the comments on unhelpful staff, we have not had any problems with the staff at CGH reception.
My main piece of advice is for anyone needing to hire or buy ski equipement: please completely avoid the Skiset shop in the CGH building just 10m from the main entrance to CGH. The selection / range of skis and boots is very poor (so no choice if you pay for the more expensive and supposedly better skis), the quality of the skis at the higher end ("Excellence" and "Sensation") is poor compared to other hire companies, the staff are not very helpful, and when we had a small amount of damage to some hire skis the manager's approach was talk very fast in French and to rip his customer off for as much as he possibly can. This was despite the fact the skis had been well used for the last 2 years by many hirers, and could be easily and cheaply repaired.
Alternative ski hire shops: for anyone with a car, I recommend using the larger of the 2 Intersport shops in Plan Peisey which is only about 500m away - they have an excellent range of skis particularly at the higher end, and have a much better approach to customer service.
