About the property

2 bed 2 bath apartment in Les Arcs 1950, sleeps 6

A light and sunny apartment in the Hameau du Glacier residence, Les Arcs 1950, with views over the piste and mountains beyond. Furnished in traditional alpine style and well equipped, the 53m2 apartment boasts 2 en-suite bedrooms, one with twin beds (2m long), a bath and WC and the other with a king size bed (also 2m long) with a shower and separate WC. The bedrooms are situated to either side of the living / dining area. A double size sofa bed is located in the living area, allowing an occupancy of up to 6 people. The living space and both bedrooms each have large windows to take advantage of the afternoon sun. A private balcony allows al-fresco dining later in the ski season and in the summer. Entertainment facilities include satellite TV and free wi-fi. Fully serviced with towels and linen provided, with an option to have a mid-week clean and / or change of towels and linen (at additional cost, supplied on request). For stays longer than one week, a full clean (excluding the kitchen area) and change of towels and linen at the end of each week is included. Saturday changeover only at present.

Arc1950 was originally developed by the Canadian specialist, Intrawest (who also created the Whistler and Mont Tremblant resorts) between 2003 and 2007 in order to provide, for the first time, a high standard of self-catered accommodation in the French Alps. The traditional architecture of Arc 1950 is striking with a clear move away from the typical bleak concrete blocks of earlier French developments. All the facilities of the village are right on your doorstep. Shops, bars and restaurants are all located on the village street level as are ski hire, ski school and lift pass office. There is also direct access into the residence from the underground secure car parking (payable locally). The Arc 1950 village itself is strictly car-free.

With the addition of the high speed “Vanoise Express” lift in late 2003, the resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne are now linked to form the “Paradiski” domaine with over 450 km of pistes and many off-piste opportunities. It is possible to ski all the way to Champagny for lunch and back again before the lifts close. Truly a “ski-in, ski-out” location, access to the pistes from the apartment really couldn’t be easier - you can ski virtually from and right back to the locker room door. The apartment has 2 ski lockers and the changing room is heated.

The village is divided into 8 residences. Hameau du Glacier has 24 hour reception (ski season only), a fully equipped gym, sauna, steam room and free laundry facilities. A particular feature is a heated internal walkway to the adjacent Prince des Cîmes residence where there is free access to a large heated indoor / outdoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room. Hameau du Glacier itself has smaller outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi, also free and open in the ski season. At the other end of the village but still only a couple of minutes’ walk away is the 1,000m2 Deep Nature Spa complex (payable locally) located in the Sources de Marie residence.

Accessibility is another key advantage of Les Arcs 1950. During the ski season, there are direct Eurostar services from London St Pancras to Bourg Saint Maurice twice a week; one daytime, the other overnight. There are also indirect rail services with changes in Paris or Lille. From Bourg Saint Maurice rail station, there is a funicular railway to Arc 1600 with a free coach connection from there to Arc 1950. Frequent flights from a variety of operators are available to Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambéry with car hire, bus, rail or taxi connections from the airports.

As for summer in Les Arcs; there are many activities on offer in the area, including mountain biking, white water rafting and hydrospeed (from Bourg St Maurice), golf, tennis, swimming, hiking, archery, glacier skiing, guided trekking, rock climbing and canoeing. Several ski lifts operate in the summer to give access to many kilometres of tracks and spectacular scenery whether on foot or with a mountain bike.

Lovely light, comfortable and spacious apartment with views of the piste

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four- my husband ,myself and our two adult children. This is our third visit to Arc 1950 and so say no more!! We love everything about the village and the skiing here .It has to be the perfect resort with genuine ski in ski out facilities right from the door. There is varied skiing for all abilities and the snow is so good at this altitude.The village has everything needed for a great holiday and all conveniently set out around the colourful square. There is a very welcoming feel to the village and we found everyone to be extremely helpful and friendly.

We would highly recommend this apartment. It is spacious and light and very well presented with everything you need for your stay here.There are lovely views of the piste from the lounge and bedrooms. We loved having the convenience of two bathrooms for the family.

Every day after skiing, we used the facilities of our building, Hameau du Glacier and the facilities of the Prince des Cimes next door (conveniently linked with a heated walkway) We loved the indoor outdoor pool, sauna and steam room after a day on the slopes-always most relaxing! There is a good selection of restaurants and bars in the village and we loved the take away pizzas, tartiflette,lasagne etc.,

Most of all, Alan the owner, has been extremely helpful and informative throughout the booking process. He sent us detailed, useful information about the apartment and the facilities available in Hameau Du Glacier and Arc 1950. Alan was keen to answer any questions promptly to ensure we had the very best holiday. We would highly recommend this apartment and would love to return. Many thanks.

Lovely apartment ideally situated for ski in out

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic holiday spent in Les Arc 1950 with my husband and our 2 teenage boys. The apartment was cosy, clean and well equipped and in a prime position for ski in and out. The balcony provided us with a lovely spot to enjoy lunch in the sunshine with great views. Having the use of the pool, jacuzzi and sauna was also an added bonus. The skiing is very varied with runs to cover every level of ability. Alan the owner of the apartment was very helpful with any questions we had. We would definitely recommend the apartment and the resort and would love to return.

The perfect ski in ski out apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very well appointed apartment with first class fittings and appliances. Ideal for those who like everything on the doorstep. No walking to slopes - definitely ski I ski out. An excellent week's skiing with the minimum of fuss. The owners were very welcoming and a pleasure to negotiate with. We would certainly return.

Superb in Les Arcs 1950

  • 5 of 5

1950 is the most attractive and best positioned of the resorts at Les Arcs, when arriving you drive straight into the car park whichever is underneath reception for your building. This apartment is in the best building due to its location, genuine ski in ski out , permanently staffed reception and superb spa facilities. The apartment itself is well laid out , ideal for families or two couples and has been very well maintained . The owner takes pride in the property and was very helpful when thinking of booking ; highly recommended for a great ski holiday .
