Really good! We had a big room on the ground floor and the bathroom was nice. The complex the chalet in is a nice place and we’d definitely go back there. It was really easy to get around from where the complex is located. The food was ok, though the chalet girl wasn’t as enthusiastic as people we’ve had in ... + more

The chalet’s lovely, though it was a bit weird having to walk through the kitchen to get to the main lounge area. We went into some other places (we had friends staying a couple of doors down) and this one is definitely a good quality place. We were in tiny bedrooms that had nowhere to unpack our suitcases w... + more

We enjoyed the holiday; the chalet host was excellent, bang on, very helpful and helped us beyond what we expected. I was a bit concerned about the layout of the chalet in terms of getting out easily if there was an emergency as the main stair was very tight and twisty, and to get to it you have to walk throu... + more

It was ok, though we were disappointed that they were lacking in bread. You expect bread on the table as you would with every meal but they seemed to be having a shortage and I’m not sure why! I wouldn’t say that the afternoon cake was quite what I’m used to either. The actual space is big enough and worked ... + more

Chalet Marcel was good, it had a nice layout and was warm and clean as well as pretty close to the slopes. The food was lovely – it was served late most nights because the guy was by himself and it was his first week (we felt bad for him really as he was out of his depth) but apart from the timing it was very ... + more

This package holiday to Chalet Marcel in Les Arcs, France departs Saturday 14th 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...

"Good standard chalet"

Robert, Reading
4/ out of 5
The whole holiday went pretty well and the chalet was good overall. Our host was quite good and we were impressed with the variety of food considering he was only about 18. On one or two evenings it was a bit cold by the time he served it but that’s a minor niggle, just one of the problems of catering for a big group. When a chalet’s described as ‘virtually ski in, ski out’, it always depends what you mean by ‘virtually’. From the Marcel it was about 200/300 yards to the little button lifts for the nearest access. Coming back you had to ski down quite an awkward little slope but it wasn’t much further to walk. The only issue was access, which I’d read about before we arrived. You have to go up quite a tight, winding staircase, which was ok most of the time but was difficult with luggage etc. After walking up the stairs you came through a kitchen area before reaching the lounge – it was manageable but a little awkward. The chalet is part of a large block so I imagine other chalets in the same block have a similar layout. This is only a minor point and overall the chalet had a good standard.

Really good! We had a big room on the ground floor and the bathroom was nice. The complex the chalet in is a nice place and we’d definitely go back there. It was really easy to get around from where the complex is located. The food was ok, though the chalet girl wasn’t as enthusiastic as people we’ve had in the past, she looked like she wanted to go home. The social areas were nice, there were only 8-10 people in the chalet and we all had plenty of room. We got the Eurostar and the transfer was really good.

"New Year's week @ Chalet Marcel"

Vickery Family
4/ out of 5
The chalet’s lovely, though it was a bit weird having to walk through the kitchen to get to the main lounge area. We went into some other places (we had friends staying a couple of doors down) and this one is definitely a good quality place. We were in tiny bedrooms that had nowhere to unpack our suitcases which was frustrating, especially when you have bulky stuff when skiing. They had no hanging space or anything. The rest of the chalet was fine in terms of space. The lounge and dining areas were just one big room. Food was a little disappointing, the poor girl was on her first season and first week and she was finding it tough. Sometimes breakfasts had nothing to eat because the croissants were burned and there was no fresh fruit (they said there was none in the resort…). When you’re in a chalet you don’t have a lot of choice, so if the food is poor that’s all you get. One girl was a vegetarian and the food they served her was appalling.

We enjoyed the holiday; the chalet host was excellent, bang on, very helpful and helped us beyond what we expected. I was a bit concerned about the layout of the chalet in terms of getting out easily if there was an emergency as the main stair was very tight and twisty, and to get to it you have to walk through the kitchen – because I was here with my kids it played on my mind a bit and I don’t think we would stay there again. The experience of the chalet apart from this was great though!

"Actual chalet nice, let down by food"

It was ok, though we were disappointed that they were lacking in bread. You expect bread on the table as you would with every meal but they seemed to be having a shortage and I’m not sure why! I wouldn’t say that the afternoon cake was quite what I’m used to either. The actual space is big enough and worked very nicely. The room and bathroom were fine. We had a flickering light but they got someone in and sorted it out pretty quickly. In terms of access to the village the location was good; it’s all quite close knit there. In terms of access to and from the slopes I thought it was going to be a bit closer to the piste and that I was going to be able to ski back, but because of the road you couldn’t. It’s a little walk to the lift.

The bedrooms were a great size and we liked the lounge area with the log fire.
