The apartment is superbly located for easy access to the Les Arcs/La Plagne/Paradiski ski resorts. Bourg St Maurice, a typical French mountain town, is full of amenities for tourists and skiers with a wide range of excellent restaurants, friendly bars, sports facilities and shops. Conveniently, an independent ski hire shop is located at the funicular. Although there is a ski locker with the apartment all ski equipment can also be stored at the ski hire shop at the funicular for a small charge which includes heated lockers for ski boot!
A private car parking space is available but a car is not essential in winter as regular trains and buses run from the airports.The snow train from St Pancras ends in Bourg. The apartment is literally a stones throw from the train/coach station, on exiting the train station the apartment is literally across the road.
The apartment has a good selection of maps and guides and we are happy to offer advice and recommendations.
