Welcome to

Les Arcs

Four traffic-free villages make up the resort of Les Arcs which, along with La Plagne, constitute the ski area known as Paradiski. On the whole, Les Arcs is suited to intermediate skiers and works really well for family groups with most main routes having easy and more difficult alternatives. The resort, however, also offers a lot of vertical all the way down to Villaroger and a range of ungroomed "Natur" runs – so if you like your moguls…!

The Ski Company offers accommodation in Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000, and weirdly, Arc 2000 is actually at 2100m and so is as snow-sure as they come!

Arc 1800 - The largest of the Les Arcs resorts. It has a pedestrianised centre, offers easy access to the slopes and is undoubtedly 'the capital' of the Les Arcs resorts when it comes to apres ski.

Arc 1950 - The prettiest of the Les Arcs villages, and perhaps the most exclusive. The whole resort is completely pedestrianised and car free and all the accommodation allows ski-in/ski-out access. There is a real village feel with great restaurants and shops too.

Arc 2000 - Quite obviously its the village that enjoys the highest altitude and so most snow-sure! Its got great access to the piste and there is plenty to do in the village as well as options a plenty for dining.

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Geneva is the recommended option because of greater flexibility for transfers and car hire to take you onto Les Arcs. The transfer is 217 kms and takes around 2 hours 40 minutes.

Train - The Eurostar glides through France directly from London St Pancras to Bourg-Saint-Maurice in a little over seven-and-a-half hours and, from there, it’s 24km on to Les Arcs with taxi and transfer options available.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Les Arcs takes around 12 hours 30 minutes without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing.


If you're driving, it's worth stopping off in Moutiers or Albertville for the larger supermarkets. Les Arcs also has smaller supermarkets available in each of its villages. You can even organise for fresh bread & pastries to be delivered to your apartment!

Choice is the name of the games in Les Arcs, we particularly love Mamie Crepe in Arc 1800 for their truly delicious sweet and savoury crepes and Belliou La Smoke is a considered a Les Arcs institution with mountain food that's a cut above the rest and a great atmosphere. It doesn't come cheap, but makes for a great end of the week treat.

For the boozers amongst you, you may want to head to Arc 1800 for the liveliest nightlife. There are a couple of good spots in Arc 2000 too......The Crazy Fox at Chalet Altitude has been popular with past clients.


Les Arcs offers up all the usual in resort activities.......there's snowshoeing, heliskiing, husky-dog rides and sledging.

And for the non-skiers in the group, or if you simply fancy a break from the pistes, there's bowling available in Arcs 1800 and 2000 and laser quest in Arc 1800.

Something a little more unique is the Village Igloo in Arc 2000. They offer up evening dining experiences....certainly a unique setting for that fondue.....and for the truly brave, there's even an overnight stay if you fancy a chillier evening than your lovely Ski Company apartment may offer!
