Overview - hotel description - Hotel La Cachette, Arc 1600 description

NB: while the Supplier rating is 3.5 Star, the Official rating is 3 Star.

The Hotel La Cachette is a classically French mountain ski hotel for those who want to experience skiing like a local. The hotel stands at the bottom of the piste in Arc 1600, and the south-facing rooms have superb views down onto Bourg Saint Maurice. Its location gives you instant skiing access, and then you can come back to refuel on the sun terrace with a bite to eat at lunch - or a refreshment of the liquid variety when it’s time for après in the hotel bar.

The decor is French Alpine, particularly in the bright and airy communal areas, with exposed stone, stained wood beams, and deep red carpets. Comfort in these areas surpasses that of the bedrooms, but you can still be assured of a good night’s sleep.

The restaurant serves up traditional French cuisine with a menu which changes daily to make the most of seasonal ingredients. As you'd expect from a French-run establishment, to accompany your daily buffet-style evening meals you'll get unlimited free wine for the duration of your meal - making your evenings just that little bit more merry.

You’ll also have complimentary access to the excellent hotel-run kids’ club. The club runs for six days and one evening per week, all season for kids aged 3-5 years, and during French school holidays for kids aged 6-17 years. They can enjoy a range of activities under the supervision of qualified, English-speaking professionals. Each week has a different theme, so your kids could be rehearsing for a sci-fi fantasy show, or painting pictures of pretty plants. For the older ones, there are sports tournaments, creative workshops and even discos.

Free baby and toddler equipment is available so there's no need to bring it with you. For adults, there's a sauna and basic fitness room. Both are free to use and booking your sauna session is easy to do with reception.

Please note:

No admittance to the sauna and fitness room for children under 16 years.

A deposit, payable by debit or credit card only, must be paid at check-in.

The dress code for evening meals is smart/casual.

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...

"Most convenient ever"

James, London
5/ out of 5
I don’t usually go back to the same place twice, but if I was returning to Les Arcs I’d have no qualms staying in the hotel again. It’s all quite 70’s style, not a top luxury 5 star hotel if you were looking for somewhere really top end but for what it does and the price you pay it’s excellent. The hotel is fine and the food was really good – the Christmas dinner they did was really nice and it was lucky they did it on Christmas Eve as one of the people I was skiing with had an accident the next day and would have missed it. Breakfast was a decent buffet with everything really and dinner alternated with a buffet one day and dinner served to your table the next . It was usually traditional French stuff and always included a salad buffet. To come to the slopes from the hotel was basically a five minute walk (in ski boots), for everything else you literally walk out the door and there are bars and restaurants right there. The main pub in the resort is right outside the hotel and is good for watching sport. We had a nice big room with a balcony facing the ski slopes and it had everything we needed. There’s a sauna downstairs which you could book for yourself and the gym was good enough. We liked the bar and the staff were very friendly. It would be a good place for families as there’s a really big crèche.

"Good food, close to the slopes, retro chalet vibe"

The hotel was really good. Really nice. The food was really good. The room was fine, the hotel is quite 1970s retro, it’s nice. It’s in a good location for skiing, you can ski more or less to the door. The hotel can be a bit like a large chalet, there is a nice bar and reception area to sit in. I didn’t get a chance to use the spa, I was too busy skiing. The hotel is in 1600 which is nice and quiet, there are a few bars but if you want to go out 1800 is better.
