Charvet des Villards consisted out of dozens of complexes. We stayed at a less pretty one. The apartments were private property and had each another interior. Our apartment was badly maintained and consisted out of old junk. The piste was quite close; you had to climb a dangerous stairway though. The area was lovely. We visited all towns at Les Arcs and La Plagne, but not all pistes. The nightlife wasn't very special, at the time I stayed there (the 10th - the 18th of March). No Dutch and the club we wanted to go to wasn't open yet at 2. Go to L.A. for the snow, the area and with a group youngsters! Then you'll have a good time!
