Would definitely consider staying in this chalet again. In general, we thought it was pretty good. The staff were particularly good and the young guys who did the food were great. The wee kitchen on the top floor didn’t have a very good extractor so the smells from the cooking were quite strong, you ended up s... + more

The location was good – Les Arcs is such a small resort that you can get around easily. It probably took us about 15-20 minutes to get from the chalet to the piste. The food was pretty poor to be honest, after quite a long trip to the resort, the first starter we had was a small and cold bit of quiche which fo... + more

Les Arcs was established in 1968 and is located in one of the largest ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of around 2 and half hours and there are various transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble too. Present day Les Arcs consists of 4 purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was purpose built for doorstep skiing and is directly linked by a funicular from Bourg St Maurice. Arc 1800 lies to the east as you look up the mountain and is quite the contr...
The ski area has everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to steep off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has “ski tranquille” zones and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients that are perfect for practicing after ski school. There are also magic carpets at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for beginners to get up the mountain without having to tackle button lifts. A number of runs are accessible via free beginner lifts, including a short lift at the bottom of Arc 1800. The ...
If you’re looking for a party, Arc 1800 is definitely the liveliest village in resort. It has previously been home to the legendary Snowbombing festival and has loads of bars and restaurants to choose between. Amongst its best is the Red hot saloon bar, known locally as the “Red Bar”. If you’re looking for more of a French style après bar, Ambiente has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails while Le club 1950 is the place to be if you’re looking to party into the small hours. Arc 1600 is a lit...

"Nice chalet"

Richard, Perth
5/ out of 5
It’s a good chalet, we were travelling as a group of 3 so the triple room suited us well. It was a bit cramped but OK overall. It’s a big chalet and there was lots of room elsewhere for all of the guests. The food was very good and the young staff looked after everyone very well. The location was excellent overall, it was a wee bit of an issue having to get the tow lift to the slopes but it wasn’t too bad! We went to one restaurant, an American steak place called Hemingway’s which I would recommend – just take the chair down about 50 metres to reach it.

"Def consider staying here again"

Steven Dickison, Isle of Coll
4/ out of 5
Would definitely consider staying in this chalet again. In general, we thought it was pretty good. The staff were particularly good and the young guys who did the food were great. The wee kitchen on the top floor didn’t have a very good extractor so the smells from the cooking were quite strong, you ended up smelling like the food if you hung around there too long! Certain things were a little tatty inside but the room was ok. We had room 6 on the ground floor for 3 of us, with a twin bed and a separate bed around the corner by the entrance door. It was really warm, to the point we had to open the balcony door some times, but this is much better than being cold. There wasn’t much cupboard space or much hanging space for drying stuff, which wasn’t a problem for us but if you pack a lot of stuff it might be a problem. For some reason in the bathroom, the shower head is only a few inches above the edge of the bath so showering was a little bit awkward but other than that the bedroom was fine. There’s a boot room cupboard in the corridor which was fine for what we needed. I wouldn’t class the chalet as ski in ski out. It’s about a 5 minute walk to the drag lift and when we were here the snow was particularly deep and it got quite icy. The alternative route (up through lifts, through top building, across where the ticket office is) was a bit of a faff so younger children or older skiers might have trouble.

"Good location, poor food"

The location was good – Les Arcs is such a small resort that you can get around easily. It probably took us about 15-20 minutes to get from the chalet to the piste. The food was pretty poor to be honest, after quite a long trip to the resort, the first starter we had was a small and cold bit of quiche which for 5 blokes who hadn’t eaten for hours wasn’t great. Our rooms and the rest of the chalet were OK.
