About John Dudfield

John and Carol Dudfield have been skiing for the last 20 years in locations all over and have found Les arc offers the full package. Our apartment is privately owned and is available for letting.

John Dudfield purchased this apartment in 2012

Why John Dudfield chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

The apartment is ideally situated in the Les Arc mountain. Arc 1950 is a beautiful pedestrian only village providing everything you need from only a stones throw away. The village is atmospheric but not too loud. Has great restaurants and bars and then there's the skiing. The real reason anyone would buy a ski apartment. 435km of pisted skiing and not to mention the off-piste available.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is on the 3rd floor and has amazing views looking over the mountains and Paradiski area as you can see from the profile image i have used. in addition all residents have access to Outdoor heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Indoor Swimming pool, steam rooms, sauna and a fitness centre.

Very well located apartment with great views.

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Arc 1950 since it first opened when our 2 children were just learning to ski. They are now adults and it’s still the prettiest, highest, most convenient, well served, doorstep ski resort we know.

The Refuge is one of the earliest in the development and one we have stayed in before so I knew which side to go for. We loved this apartment. It may be one of the smaller ones by square footage but the beautiful view over the slopes and lifts from the full height, picture windows gave us light, space, joy in the mornings, entertainment in the afternoons and a peaceful setting in the evenings. It was perfect for our family of four and well laid out with rooms on either side of the living room.

It is also on the top floor and at the end of the corridor so feels private but has an additional lift here which accesses the spa area so you can slip out in your bathrobe and be in the (predominantly empty)spa within a few paces.

Comforts include fast WiFi, Netflix, nespresso, fine bedlinen, bathrobes and molton brown toiletries. We were touched by the welcoming bottle of prosecco by the owners.

We rearranged the sofa and table to maximise the view as the balcony was under repair. The dining table, as a generous console behind the sofa, worked out beautifully for our two undergrads needing desk space and gave shape to the sitting area.

Minor niggles: the height of the microwave and breakfast bar are better suited to tall guests. A couple of extra hooks at the doorway or removing one door would avoid having to fight with two back-to-back doors to access the coat cupboard. A hanging rail in the corner cupboard of the master bedroom would have been useful as it has ample shelves - even enough to stack suitcases. Double plug sockets would mean no compromising lights to charge phones and would allow both sliding doors to fully open if necessary.

Our host was extremely attentive and responded quickly to any questions and requests. It was so much nicer and more satisfying to deal with the owner personally.

The reception at the Hameau freely replenished our supply of dishwasher tablets and toilet paper as there was no midweek clean. We were also able to leave our bags with them to ski on the last day and use their spa after we’d checked out, using different key cards. All this was fully explained by John over emails.

We had a great time staying in this apartment and would happily recommend it to others.

Fantastic accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this accomodation, it has ski in and ski out from the locker room, supemarket, bakery, ski hire and ski lift pass in very close proximity. 1950 is a beautiful location for a holiday. The accomodation is superb, clean and has everything you require. Cooking for yourself is easy and the owner John was very helpful and always replied quickly to any questions. We would definately use this accomodation again. Thank you John.

Great apartment for a family skiing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 8 nights over the New Year at Les Arcs 1950 resort. This good sized two bedroom apartment accomodated my family of five, including 3 young children. No issues at all throughout our stay. Would recommend it to others.

Perfect ski in and out accommodations. the apartment was clean and cozy and exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

Les Arcs 1950 is a wonderful village with all the amenities required. We had breakfast and lunch in the apartment but out for dinners. The kitchen isn’t quite set up for a big meal in but simple cooking was fine. We went to many different restaurants and tried regional specialties. We enjoyed Le Savoy in 2000 very much.

We were two adults and two teenagers and the apartment felt spacious for our needs.

The host of our apartment was very kind and easy to deal with and sent helpful tips to help us get the most out of our time there. A wonderful experience.

The apartment was clean and well set up when we arrived.

The Refuge building was clean and quiet although the sauna and steam room were not working correctly during our time.

We lucked into amazing ski conditions and really enjoyed the skiing. It is a different type of skiing than North America, more ‘touring’ and exploring around from area to area and that was amazing experience. (Just don’t go expecting tons of steep black diamond runs)

Arc 1950 is a beautiful, pedestrian only village in the popular ski and mountain biking resort of Les Arcs. The apartment is situated in the centre of the village, so easily accessible in true ski in, ski out style.

Food, Drinks and Nightlife and Relaxation.

There are ample bars, cafes, bakery and restaurants of various different styles in Arc 1950, so something to suit all tastes and needs. Alternatively The Spar stocks a great variety of foods for those wanting to enjoy dining in. If you fancy something a little different the gondola runs during the daytime until 11pm most nights, taking you to Arc 2000.

In terms of nightlife after the pubs and bars, Luigi’s Club opens twice a week but there are plenty more clubs in Arc 2000.

If you are in need of some TLC Arc 1950 offers a fantastic spa. Deep Nature Spa is situated at the back of the resort offering incredible views of Mont Blanc.

Winter Sports

Based in Arc 1950, you will be readily set for some unforgettable skiing in one of the largest resorts in Europe. Paradiski covers Les Arcs, Peisey-Vallandry and La Plagne with 435km of pisted skiing from 1,200 to 3,250 metres and 131 ski lifts.

Pistes are varied so suitable for very beginner to expert skiiers. For the more daring, tours are provided by Evolution who can take you off piste to some of the most spectacular and remote areas of the mountain. Not for the faint hearted we might add!

Ski and equipment hire is available from several places in Arc 1950, so no need to worry about sorting this before you arrive. There are also two great ski schools providing lessons and guides for all abilities. For children aged 3 and over, there are always group ski classes for them to join or there is a great childrens club called The Caribou, offering all day child care should you wish to ski/board independently.

Summer Sports

Whether it’s mountain biking or hiking, Arc 1950 is in a prime location for those looking for a challenge.
