The chalet was absolutely fine; the best thing was probably the nice warm showers! The food was good, especially the panna cotta which the kids liked. We tended to have cereal and croissants in the mornings which was nice. As usual the bedrooms were a bit cramped, but given we were on holiday and not moving in,... + more

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 Petit Ours'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.

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...

"Family holiday April 2016"

The Campbell Family
4/ out of 5
The chalet was absolutely fine; the best thing was probably the nice warm showers! The food was good, especially the panna cotta which the kids liked. We tended to have cereal and croissants in the mornings which was nice. As usual the bedrooms were a bit cramped, but given we were on holiday and not moving in, they were fine. We stayed here right at the end of the season and it was a fair walk from there to the slopes, which was a bit difficult with kids. Either you had to get the lifts up, or there was a very busy tow. It wasn’t a disaster, but it’s certainly not as easy as ski in, ski out.

This cosy chalet has a wraparound balcony but actually great views can be enjoyed from several rooms. It's located on the third floor with an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area where everyone can congregate and chew the fat. For ultimate convenience, the building/complex has a ski shop right under the chalet apartments and you can easily access the lifts within a short walk. The same can be said of the local pub and swimming pool nearby (the pool was allowing guests from this chalet when we last checked, but make sure you ask before you book, if that's important to your holiday). The bus stop is close by if you wish to explore the rest of the resort.
