Les Arc Accommodation
Looking for ski accommodation in Arc 1950?
Congrats ̶ you’ve slid into the exact snowy spot where you’ll find it!
Whether you are after fantastic hotels in Les Arcs, chic chalets or a well-appointed apartment, Erna Low can find your ideal residence in this pretty, purpose-built French ski resort.
Much of the accommodation in this car-free ski village is ski-in/ski-out, so whether you’re taking to the slopes solo, tackling tricky reds and cruisy blues as a couple, or you’re a family or group of friends that includes skiers and snowboarders of different abilities, the pristine powder of Les Arcs and beyond are on your doorstep.
Arc 1950 sits below the dramatic Aiguille Rouge and facing Mont Blanc at the entrance to the spectacular Vanoise National Park and the comfy self-catering apartments, cosy chalet-style accommodation and high-quality hotels you’ll find here are all designed as safe, secure and stylish residences. Here, you can rest, relax and socialise in between exciting sessions on the slopes of Les Arcs and the huge 425km Paradiski area ̶ which is actually the world’s second-largest and features a dazzling array of perfectly-prepped corduroy, off-piste pow for freeriders and terrain parks where freestylers can have the time of their lives. Arc 1950 is the most recently built of the villages in Les Arcs ski resort but has a more traditional architectural style which harks back to the chalet-style silhouettes which are typical of this part of the Savoie, albeit fused with all the contemporary conveniences you need to make the most of the slopes, facilities and apres-ski. Therefore if you’re a traditionalist who loves the charm of an authentic Alpine resort, this is probably just the right side of ‘chocolate box’ for your taste.
Les Arcs is another of a selection of French ski resorts which were first developed in the 1960s and its constituent villages outwith Arc 1950 feature the modernist architecture that was typical of the time. However, Arc 1950 was developed by Intrawest and 360 Vox Development’s Robert Jerome, the team behind globally-renowned ski resorts like Whistler and Copper Mountain, therefore in keeping with the creative ambience of these locations, it’s designed as a high-class resort in the traditional style, with accommodation, shops, cafes and restaurants arranged around village squares and streets. Because so much care and attention has gone into Arc 1950’s design and development, it’s the ideal spot for anyone who wants a compact, chic and manageable ski resort where all the essentials are at hand, safety, comfort and customer service are prioritised and exploring the sublime slopes of Les Arcs and Paradiski is complete pleasure that’s totally smooth and trouble-free.
There’s a good range of slopes here for skiers of all stripes and a snowpark between Arc 1600 and Arc 1800 that riders in your party will love, more cafés, restaurants and apres-ski bars and clubs than you can shake a saucisson at, and plenty of reputable ski schools, childcare and kids entertainment on and off the slopes.
All in all, Arc 1950 is a ski resort that delights discerning customers just like you, and Erna Low can recommend the perfect ski accommodation that makes its multifaceted attractions sparkle even more brightly.
When you want Arc 1950 ski accommodation with a certain je ne sais quoi, we’re here to help.
Ski chalets in Arc 1950
Even if you’re never been near a ski resort before, you’ll definitely be familiar with the classic design of the Alpine chalet, with its simple, sloped A-frame roof, stone base and wood cladding, with intricately carved balconies.
Like many of the world’s best ideas, the chalet is an idea that’s been borrowed, adapted and reused for a purpose that’s very different from its original conception ̶ now the best-known type of ski accommodation, it was originally an agricultural building used to store goods and shelter shepherds and livestock on Alpine pastures.
Given Arc 1950’s old-school design, you’ll see those familiar chalet features on many different buildings here and ski chalets, or chalet-style accommodation can be a great choice if you want a home from home that harks back to the roots of the ski holiday industry but still features all the comfort and convenience of a contemporary hotel or apartment.
Please let us know if it feels like a ski chalet in Les Arcs sounds like it’s ideal for your requirements and we’ll find the best match for your budget, taste and requirements.
Then when you’re gathered around your roaring fireplace, have a glass or two of something special for us!
Ski apartments in Arc 1950
Arc 1950 ski apartments are a savvy choice for solo skiers, couples and families who prize convenience, comfort and the freedom of self-contained, independent living (even for the duration of a ski holiday).
Ski apartments are available in various sizes and configurations, for example, some have open-plan studio layouts with large living rooms that double as sleeping spaces and adjacent kitchens where you can prep meals, others have separate bedrooms, and most are conveniently located very close to the slopes, ski lifts and other amenities.
Meanwhile, a ski apartment complex which solely contains residential units might satisfy your needs perfectly well, or you might prefer a more luxe apartment block with extra features like an onsite bar, restaurant, pool and spa.
Furthermore, if you like the thought of a self-drive and self-catering ski holiday where you travel and holiday in your own social group, this is best facilitated by an apartment.
