The L’Ours Blanc was ok, the facilities like the heated lockers were good, and it wasn’t too far from the lifts (about 150m to the tow). The rooms were a wee bit small but that’s France for you – it’s a usual problem in France that you have nowhere to hang clothes and hardly enough room to swing a cat. We ... + more

Buffet breakfast with hot option and afternoon tea/coffee and cake . 4-course dinners including apéritif, choice of complimentary quality wines, coffee and chocolates

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet L'ours Blanc's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

This package holiday to Chalet L'ours Blanc in Les Arcs, France departs Sunday 8th January 2017, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

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...

"Ideal for what we paid"

Marc Bilkus, Southend-on-Sea
5/ out of 5
Booked this as a last minute holiday. The chalet was very good and I really enjoyed the holiday here, the 2 guys that ran it were great and the whole set up was good. The food was perfect for what we paid for the holiday. It was very central in a good spot, high up with access all over the area. From the chalet it was a little walk to the lifts, more or less 2 minutes to the rope lift which drags you up the hill to Les Arcs 2000. From there you could go left or right or ski down to Les Arcs 1950. Liked the sauna, room was a bit tiny but this wasn’t a huge problem as we only used it to sleep in. Stayed in a twin room which had a balcony and shower but no bath, it was clean though and nice and warm - half of the other rooms were probably bigger than ours. This would be a good place for families, we shared the chalet with a couple who had 2 young kids and another family with older children, it’s not in a loud area and not near any clubs or bars so very quiet at night.

"Good facilities and location - have had better food in other chalets"

The L’Ours Blanc was ok, the facilities like the heated lockers were good, and it wasn’t too far from the lifts (about 150m to the tow). The rooms were a wee bit small but that’s France for you – it’s a usual problem in France that you have nowhere to hang clothes and hardly enough room to swing a cat. We paid extra for a balcony but probably wouldn’t bother next time, it’s not much of a balcony. It’s not as good as some we’ve stayed in from the point of view of the food menu, which was a bit Spartan. Don’t get me wrong we know what chalet food’s like, we’ve just had better experiences elsewhere.

"Early January family holiday"

Chalet L'ours Blanc is a big building split into multiple apartments which seem to be mostly shared between UK ski holiday operators. Overall, fairly functional, very tired and a bit grubby and definitely not what you would imagine a chalet to be like. We were looked after by our ski hosts well but were plagued by maintenance problems such as the heating in the main room not working for 5 of our seven days, no light in the sauna, showers not working and dishwashers churning out dirty plates and cutlery. The relationship between the ski companies and the maintenance team of the chalet owners seems poor and the ski companies have little leverage to get repairs done. This is not a ski in ski out chalet as it requires a 100 yard walk to the nearest lift along a road. There is a good ski hire shop at ground level in the chalet.

"Great for big groups or couples keen to socialise"

This being one of the bigger chalets as part of Chalets De l’ours, its located on the second floor with several rooms having a balcony to enjoy the views. It's ideally situated in Les Arc 2000 so this is a really popular place to stay with top catered service and friendly atmosphere in a great location. The button lift is 250m away, so you have easy access to slopes heading out and heading back home.
