Making up one side of the vast Paradiski ski domain, Les Arcs is situated in the Tarentaise region of the French Alps.
Overlooking the town of Bourg Saint Maurice, Les Arcs is just under 2½ hours’ drive from Chambery airport, and 3 hours from Geneva, with plenty of flights from various UK airports. Regular Eurostar and TGV services run during the winter if you wish to travel by rail.
Les Arcs is made up of four separate villages, named after their snowsure altitudes and each offering a different ambience and accommodation range. All the villages are linked by ski runs or resort shuttle bus and a highlight of a visit to Paradiski has to be the double decker Vanoise Express, which links the Les Arcs and La Plagne ski areas, crossing a hair raising 400-metre drop to the valley floor below.
The resort of Arc 1950 is a self-contained ski-in/ski-out village built with convenience in mind. Very much a family friendly ski destination, the eight luxury residences of Le Village provide an exceptional standard of self-catering apartments complete with hotel-style facilities. These include extensive leisure facilities such as outdoor pools and hot tubs, saunas and steam rooms and a spa complex.
Ski straight from your apartment and explore the vast Paradiski ski area with terrain to suit all abilities and ages. You’ll find a selection of shops, bars, restaurants and the local ski school right on your doorstep so you won’t miss out on your morning croissant or après-ski vin chaud.
The apartments themselves are well equipped and all have a balcony or terrace, fully equipped kitchenette, TV and bath or shower room. Mid-week and end of stay cleaning (not kitchens) is included in the cost of your holiday.
Le Village’s reception is open 24 hours and among the many services you can book include daily cleaning and underground parking. Families with young children can hire travel cots, high chairs and even pushchairs for free (these must be booked in advance).
Any non-skiers in your party can enjoy the pools and hot tubs, indulge in spa treatments, explore the valley town of Bourg St Maurice by catching the funicular railway from the village of Arc 1600, or simply take in the view from the comfort of their balcony.
Le Village doesn’t disappoint, we love it and we think you will too!
