/ Season rental
Obviously, indicate resort and approx. size please.
Nendaz £3200 including bills 4 bed and much bigger could do 3 for a season (we had 2 + many visitors, 4 visitors at one point). 10 minute walk from the lifts, cost of living was higher though as it's Switzerland.
Just been in Serre Chevalier which would be fine with access to bigger places for non ski stuff and access to other resorts like La Grave!
So long as the pass is open, which it often isn't. I'd sooner look at somewhere down the road L2A, A2 and La Grave than the other side of the massive. Though of course that's just my personal preference.

Rarely shut IMO given it's the main route between Grenoble and Italy, normally if it shuts the avvy risk is too high to be doing any interesting skiing so you wouldn't miss much. Also being on the far side gives you a lot more access the tree skiing in Serre Che, Montgenevre and Puy St Vincent that is lacking in the places you mention.
That said I'd stay in one of the places you mention.
Speaking French is fine! In fact, if this ever comes off the fewer Brits around the better in a way.
At my age skiing and night life do not coexist. I save myself for the important stuff!
