Overview - chalet description - Chalet Yves description

A former farm building, Chalet Yves has been sympathetically restored by the owner, using local timbers and stone. This simple and rustic traditional mountain chalet has an open fire which gives a warm and homely feel to the property. Situated on the peaceful hillside below our Chalet Cicero, Yves has stunning views of Mont Blanc and the valley below and is everything you would expect from a traditional French mountain chalet. NB. Snow boots and easy-to-carry bags are strongly recommended as the steep path to the chalet is often snowy.

Les Arcs came to be in 1968 after a group of ski instructors and architects dreamt up a resort with all the perks of a village but a mountainside location. It grew into one of the largest, most incredible ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of a couple of hours, plus transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble. Present-day Les Arcs consists of four main purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was created for doorstep skiing and is linked by a funicular ...
As you'd expect from one of the biggest ski areas on the planet, there's everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to wild, white-knuckle off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has 'ski tranquille' zone, and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients perfect for practising. Local instructors are on hand to show you the ropes, with ski schools based in each of the main villages (1800 has the most). There are magic carpet lifts at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for newbies to get up ...
If you're looking for a party, Arc 1800 is the place to be. With heaps of watering holes like the Red Hot Saloon (or the 'Red Bar' to use local lingo), Benji's and La Folie Douce. If you're looking for more of a French-style après spot, Ambiente Cafe has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails (happy hour usually starts at 4) while Le club 1950 your venue if you're looking to party into the wee hours. Arc 1600's a little quieter but for good music and a scenic terrace check out Les 2 Têtes. In te...

"Really good"

ES, Bristol
5/ out of 5
The chalet overall was really good, the host was good and really made the holiday. It was clean, a good size and the other people staying there were all very friendly. We liked the location as everyone else was staying in big blocks and it was nice to be a bit off the beaten track. Getting to the slopes took an easy enough 5 minute walk. The food was good, there was a bit too much but you can’t complain about that!

"Cheaper than a central chalet, but not far out"

Neighbouring Chalet Cicero but still private and great for sharing our sole occupancy, this is a beautifully rustic holiday home with much of the building made from locally sourced materials. The walk to the piste and town is hardly a country walk, but for the off-piste lovers, this can be a great start to your day with some tree-line action. For families preferring a little seclusion, you won't feel completely cut off as in other out-of-centre chalets - this one is perfect (even when the legs are a little tired later in the week) as the bus stops just a few hundred yards along the hill.
