About Paul and Helen McDermott

We have owned our apartment for 10 seasons and are very proud that our guests have a great time when they visit. We go skiing twice a year and walk/ mountain bike in the summer.

We love the fact we don't have to walk more than a few paces to the slopes, the immense ski area, linked with La Plagne, and the south facing balcony.

Paul and Helen McDermott purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Paul and Helen McDermott chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

-Extent of the resort

-Ski in ski out location

-South facing balcony

-Two separate sleeping floors

-Friendliness of locals

-Quiet slopes without many lift queues

-Nice local food and wine (hope you like cheese!)

What makes this apartment unique

We have decorated our apartment in traditional alpine style and installed new heating, dishwasher, fridge, kitchen hob, TV/ DVD player, bed, sofa bed and cupboards to make the place as comfortable as possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We had a fantastic week and the skiing was really good, its a great resort and we all said we would love to go back there again. We were all very impressed with the apartment which was just perfect for what we wanted. The agency was very helpful when we arrived and gave us some good tips on places to eat/drink/ski. will definitely keep your details as if we do go back to Les Arcs it would be great to stay again. Hope you have a happy New Year All the best" - Kim (Stewart, Digger, Nat, Wendy & Dave!)

‘We got back yesterday afternoon having had a brilliant week. The position of the apartment was great. We even figured out a ski to the door route through the trees (I hate steps at the end of a day). The kitchen is very well equipped and the dishwasher was a godsend. Les Arc suffers a little because it is purpose built & not as pretty as some. I would recommend it every time though as it is so big" D&P Rawlinson.

Compact, well equipped apartment; Eurostar easy.

  • 5 of 5

Several years visiting Les Arcs & this apartment- now it's not little kids being careful on the stairs, it's big kids being happy with the wi-fi access box. The apartment is compact, well equipped, updated in some aspect every year, with Ski Set close by for hire and a great shop for bread in the mornings (plus some groceries & pizza) there as well. We travel by Eurostar and David, the on-site host for Paul & Helen, is always close by when I get to his office from the funicular & bus, especially if I've texted en route. Great for walking as well as skiing, with lots of new additions in recent years, Arc 1800 just keeps improving- which is why we've already booked for Xmas (in the first week of January).

Fabulous little bolt hole with all the comforts of home in a GREAT location !

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week staying at this beautiful apartment and as soon as we got there, we felt right at home.

Every creature comfort is catered for, including a coffee machine, electric oven / grill, satellite TV and even a dishwasher.

The full size bath was a bonus after a day on the slopes and the kids loved their 'den' on the second floor.

The location is superb, just a couple of minutes walk to the main lifts and the village centre you could not be nearer the action.

We were also able to ski to the apartments back door (steps) by following the directions sent by the owners, Paul & Helen.

In fact, the info. pack sent by the owners proved invaluable and helped us to get the most out of the area without wasting valuable time.

I would recommend this apartment to any one looking for a good value apartment, in a great location at one of Europes top ski resorts...

Thank You Paul and Helen - we had a fantastic time in Les Arcs !

A wonderful stay in this very homely apartment. We ski often in Les Arcs - usually staying in 2000 - but we are now converts to 1800. We arrived later than expected but had spoken with the concierge who was very helpful indeed and assured us there would be someone to give us the key. We arrived at the apartment happy to find it was very warm and cosy. Everything was as described and more besides. Paul and Helen had provided lots of useful info prior to our arrival - including where to eat/best ski runs/best places to shop etc. 1800 has so much more going on than 2000 - much more lively on an evening. As always the skiing was superb - I've never been disappointed with the snow in Les Arcs. It is possible to access apartment from the piste - once we found it - once again the info provided gives directions for this. Wonderful stay - we'll be returning and will definitely recommend.

Great Mountain Biking Base

  • 3 of 5

We've stayed in this appartment for the last 3 years to take advantage of the fantastic mountain biking in Les Arcs. The Appartment is ideally placed and right next to Transarc which is the highest lift to some of the best Biking trails you'll find in the Alps.

Paul is very helpful and good communications throughout, Couldn't make the stay easier.

The appartment is clean and spacious (only two of us). Parking in the summer is an absolute doddle. We've always found a place near the appt to park. The balcony is perfect for putting the bikes togther after the flight and secure overnight. Thanks for a great stay. Recommended for summer Biking.

Great little apartment close to the lifts

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is fantastic as it's close to the main town and Trans Arc lift.

It's clean, small but well formed and all the essentials covered (don't forget towels!) so perfect for families/couples.

The kitchenette is very well stocked and we even cooked in one night.

Paul was extremely helpful and accommodating during the entire booking process and a pleasure to deal with.

If back in Les Arcs which I'm sure we will be, we would happily rent with Paul again.

We had a fantastic week in this lovely apartment, it has everything you could need and is in a good location. Paul and Helen couldn't have been more helpful and their instructions and helpful hints were great. We will be back next year and would highly recommend the apartment and Les Arcs
