About the property

Ski-in Ski Out Apartment , Piste/Village views Sleeps 4- 7

The Resort

Designed by Intrawest (of Whistler fame), Arc 1950 offers stark contrast to the other Villages comprising the Les Arcs Ski Area. Arc 1950 is a fully pedestrianised resort built in traditional alpine style. All amenities are within walking distance from the Residence which is genuinely ski-in/ski-out. Ski schools, lift pass office, supermarket (small), bakery, bars, shops and restaurants are literally on your doorstep. Covered parking is available underneath the residence (payable locally at 12€ a night). Unless you want to drive to another resort, you won’t need your car for the duration of your stay.

Arc 1950 forms part of the Paradiski region offering 420km of runs. Paradiski comprises the resorts of Arc 2000, Arc 1950, Arc 1800, Arc 1600, Peisey-Vallandry and the entire La Plagne ski region which can be reached via the “Vanoise-Express” from Peisey-Vallandry (worth visiting just for the cable car ride)

The Residence

Refuge du Montagnard is one of 8 residences in Arc 1950. Refuge du Montagnard itself offers a sauna, a steam room and an outdoor Jacuzzi as well as a heated ski locker room with direct access to the ski slopes. Guests can also make use of the indoor and outdoor swimming pool located in the neigbouring residence, Prince des Cimes. For those wishing to pamper themselves the “Deep Nature Spa” complex is minutes away.

The Apartment

The apartment is located on the 7th Floor of Refuge du Montagnard (top floor).

The apartment consists of an open plan kitchen, dining, living room with a balcony overlooking the Village and the home runs back to the resort. The kitchen area itself offers a fridge with small freezer, a dishwasher, ceramic hob, microwave oven, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine (capsules are provided) and a toaster. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the utensils you will need.

The dining area comfortably seats six people. The living room contains a double sofa bed, two armchairs and a log fire. Cable TV (with terrestrial English Channels), BlueRay DVD, IPOD/MP3 music system and free WIFI are all included.

The bedrooms are located upstairs and comprise and double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower attachment and a twin bedroom (with a third trundle bed if required). Upstairs there is also a separate shower room and WC. There is also ample cupboard space and a safe in the main bedroom.

Cleaning and Linen

The apartment will be made up for your arrival. Linen and towels are provided. The apartment will be cleaned at the end of the week (included in your rate) albeit a mid-week clean can be arranged at an additional cost.

You are asked to deposit all your refuse in the bins located in the car-park area of the Residence.

There is a laundry in the Residence (washing machines and tumble dryers).

Additional Information

Upon booking, you will be provided with a welcome pack containing further details and useful information to assist you during your stay.

Superb apartment in true ski in ski out location

  • 5 of 5

We booked last minute and communication with Jonathan the owner was fast and efficient.

This is a very, very nice apartment with 3 toilets!! 2 upstairs & 1 downstairs. Unheard of in France for a 2 bedroom apartment. Useful to know if you plan to sleep 6 in this place as it’s not clear on the information.

We’ve skied in this region for 35 years and can honestly say this was very good value for money and truly ski in ski out location.

Bathrobes & slippers for the spa are provided (which I wasn’t expecting).

Underground parking was very convenient but make sure you get a ticket for the week as it’s cheaper then the daily rate!

We shall return!

Fabulous Apartment - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well equipped apartment situated in very convenient location for shops, restaurants, ski hire shops (we used Les Arcs 1950 - Precision) and the ski pass counter. We literally skied off the slopes directly to the apartment building. Communication with Jonathan (the owner) was also fabulous. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Perfect apartment in perfect ski village

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a lot of ski resorts, but this one probably beats them all in terms of village design. Arc 1950 is really well thought out and attractive. Car free village with ample parking in the basement. All the shops, bars and restaurants you would need as a family (not the party-all-night kind of place you might be looking for in your early twenties). A free swimming pool/hot tub/sauna. A fire pit lit in the village centre each evening, and different activities for the kids. In the week before Christmas, that included various craft activities, a sleigh ride pulled by reindeer, and skiing pulled by a horse. There was floodlit evening skiing twice a week too. The apartment had plenty of space for us as a family of four, and we'd have happily fitted 6 in there. Very comfortable and clean; bang in the centre of the village yet still nice and quiet; and easy to ski into and out of. Absolutely perfect.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Fiona. I am glad you had a good time and enjoyed the Village. Like you, I have skied in many places but had never skied in Arc 1950 before we acquired the apartment. It seemed perfect for our family. Happy Christmas to you and yours. Jon

Great apartment in a very attractive village

  • 4 of 5

The flat is great, spanning over 2 floors with a lot of storage space, well equipped kitchen and perfectly suited for our ski holiday.

The maintenance guys were absent, which is a pity as otherwise the stay could be really perfect.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your helpful review. In respect of maintenance, as it is a privately owned apartment, maintenance issues are not serviced by Pierre & Vacances (who service the Village). All maintenance queries are to be addressed to my agents , Zealous. They are available 24/7 to address any maintenance queries. All guests receive a welcome email/text from Zealous when they arrive and their details are also contained in the welcome pack which guests receive in advance and upon arrival. If there are any specific maintenance issues that need addressing during a guest's visit, Zealous should be contacted and will take care of it immediately.

Perfect location for superb skiing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, two adults and two children aged 8 and 11 stayed here for a week in January 2016.

The apartment is spacious, clean and bright, with plenty of room for our family and more!

The warm welcoming living area has a balcony over looking the slopes and village, a log fire, plenty of comfortable seating, TV, DVD and wifi. There is a good sized dining area and well stocked kitchen. Upstairs there are two good sized bedrooms with comfortable beds and plenty of storage. Two bathrooms, one ensuite to the master and the other accessible from the landing.

But for us the most important thing was the perfect location of the apartment for the superb skiing. Ski lockers on the third floor give quick easy access straight onto the slopes with two main lifts just a short ski away. The ski schools meet just round the corner, so no hot irritated kids walking for miles with all their kit before their lessons. Equally when we came off the slopes to collect our children we could ski straight into the village to the meeting point and then ski straight back to the apartment.

The village itself is beautiful and very family friendly. The local shop stocked everything we needed for the week, and the morning trip to the bakery over the road for fresh bread is a must.

We had a fabulous week, the ski area is vast and has slopes to suit all levels of skier and boarder. Jonathan went above and beyond to ensure we had all the information we needed before we left, including daily ski/snow reports leading up to our trip. He even provided two new additional heaters for us as a very cold spell was predicted. We didn't need them in the end as the apartment was very warm, but it just shows the extra mile Jonathan is prepared to go to ensure his guests are happy.

Can’t wait to return.

About The Owner

A family that is passionate about winter sports and life in the mountains. The apartment is somewhere for our family to enjoy for many years

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2014

Why The Owner chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

Perfect for families. Easy, convenient and relaxed. No driving, no carrying skis, no long walks.

What makes this apartment unique

Ski holiday made easy. Ski school outside the front door. Ski down to the lifts. Ski back to locker room at the end of the day. The resort and the apartment could not be more convenient. If Les Arcs was not enough, there is the link to La Plagne. Val d'Isere, Tignes, St Foy & La Rosiere are all also within a short(ish) drive.
