About the property

Traditional alpine, Savoyan style apartment offers space for 4 to 6 people

Ski Village (Arc 1950):

The Canadian resort developer Intrawest began creating the ski village “Arc 1950” in 2003. (They also built ski resorts in Whistler, Mont Tremblant, Keystone etc.) The Savoyan architecture of the village is a positive move away from the bleak, concrete blocks of earlier French ski developments and will positively surprise the guest by its old, traditional style of cobblestones and traffic-free village life. It offers boutiques, bars, a supermarket, bakery and restaurants within walking distance. Further the ski hire, ski school, lift pass office and nursery are also at your door-step.

Only a few minutes walk away there is free access to a large, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pool. The village offers a “Deep Nature Spa” complex with wellness and beauty parlour (payable locally).

There is direct access to the residence from the underground secure car parking (payable locally, 12€ per night).

Residency (Refuge du Montagnard):

The village comprises of 8 residences, one of which is Refuge du Montagnard where the apartment is located. This high-standard, self-catered accommodation offers a sauna, a steam room and an outdoor Jacuzzi as well as a heated ski locker room with ski in/ski out access to the ski slopes.

Ski Area:

Arc 1950 lies in the heart of Les Arcs, a ski area including Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 2000 and Peisey/Vallandry. A high-speed lift “Vanoise Express”, built in 2003, links the resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne to form the “Paradiski” domaine with over 420 km of pistes.


The apartment consists of an open plan kitchen, dining, living area and a balcony with views over snowy mountains.

The kitchen contains a fridge with freezing compartment, a dishwasher, ceramic hob, microwave oven with a grill, electric kettle, coffee machine and toaster.

The dining area comprises of an oval, wooden table with six chairs and a rustic sideboard.

In the adjoining living area there is a double size sofa bed, an armchair with a separate footrest and coffee table. There is a TV cabinet with HD TV (BBC1 and 2, ITV etc.). The apartment is equipped with free Wi-Fi.

A door leads to the balcony which offers fantastic views to the nearby Jacuzzi and to the mountain opposite with trees covered in snow.

On the left side of the apartment there is a double bedroom with a king-size bed, a built-in wardrobe with safe and an en-suite bathroom consisting of a bath with shower attachment, a marble sink with large mirror, built-in hairdryer, heated towel rail and WC.

On the right side a small entrance hall takes you to the twin bedroom with two built-in wardrobes, a shower room with a sink, a heated towel rail and a second separate WC.

A laundry offering the free use of two washing machines and two dryers is provided nearby. The end of week cleaning is included in the price as well as the supply of linen and towels. As an additional option a mid-week clean (except kitchen area) and change of linen/towels can be offered at an extra price. For stays longer than one week, a full clean (excluding kitchen area) and change of towels and linen at the end of each week is included.


ARC 1950 is easily accessible. During the ski season there are direct Eurostar services from London St. Pancras to Bourg St. Maurice railway station from where the nearby funicular railway can be taken to Arc 1600 with a free bus connection to Arc 1950. Numerous flights are available to Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambery with car hire, bus, rail or taxi connections from the airports.

About The Owner

Our family is passionate about winter holidays, especially skiing. We have enjoyed many wonderful, relaxing family ski holidays in Arc 1950. The children started from a young age and still like to ski here as young adults.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

The ski in/ski out attracted us most of all. There is no tiresome driving between the ski area and the apartment. Everything needed for a perfect holiday, like shops, restaurants, apres ski entertainment is within walking distance, only a couple of minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Arc 1950 lies in the heart of Les Arcs, a ski area including Arc 1600, Arc 1800 and Arc 2000. A high-speed lift “Vanoise Express”, built in 2003, links the resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne to form the “Paradiski” domaine with over 425 km of pistes.

A Little Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I have skied in this area for ten years and I love it. Usually there is a group of 8 to 10 and we hire a Chalet but for a variety of reasons our party was only four strong and we chose an apartment in Les Arc 1950. We love everything about the little town (accept the prices in the shops).

This apartment was absolutely ideal. Very well positioned with amazing views across the slopes. The apartment had everything we needed (except we would have loved a DVD player!) and was clean and well laid out. Nothing is faraway, shops, restaurants and bars and of course the pistes are outside the boot room door.

I also have to compliment Maria on her communication it made my life as the organiser of the trip so much easier. Thank you. If there are four of us next year..... we will be back!

Great apartment and location!

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very spacious and the spa facilities were great! Location was great for ski in/out! Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the lack of an oven, as we were hoping to do more cooking in the apartment.

Very comfortable apartment in a very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in this apartment!

Everything was exactly in accordance with the description.

It is a very comfortable apartment for a family, with two bedrooms situated on two sides of living room. Everything was clean and working.

The apartment has a very beautiful view over the mountains.

The residence where the apartment is situated is excellent, with different leisure facilities after ski. We, personally, enjoyed the sauna, hammam and outside jacuzzi.

The booking via this site was very easy. Maria, the owner, answers quickly on all emails. The managing company prepared apartment for us early.

I can highly recommend this property!

Superbe appartement très bien agencé & situé

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est très bien agencé, avec chaque chambre possédant sa propre salle de bain & wc. Il est très agréable, très propre, et idéalement situé en bord des pistes.

Le village des arcs 1950 est une petite perle pour passer de merveilleuses vacances de ski: Architecture respectant la montagne (pas de barres d'immeubles gigantesques), des petits commerces pour l'après-ski et le diner, les pistes de ski qui entourent le village et permettent de se rendre à l'appartement skis aux pieds.. Et bien entendu les multiples jacuzzi / piscine.

Maria est très réactive, merci encore pour votre location!
