About the property

Apartment G1, Marmotte, in Arc 2000, Nr. Bourg St Maurice, French Alps - 120 Metres from the piste. Quiet But Close To 2000 And 1950. Wifi included

The property is in a wood and stone building of 6 apartments. It's on the edge of Arcs 2000, overlooking 1950 with pine trees dotted around. You can go up the elevator to the restaurants in 2000, or down the Gondola to the bars, shops and restaurants of 1950. It's a 26km taxi trip from Bourg St Maurice station which is on the London Eurostar route or you can get the bus and funicular down there for a wander about the village. We speak English, French and Italian.

About John Hempsey

My wife and I are Scottish and live in Surrey. We've been married since 1975 and are now retired grandparents. which means we're busier than ever. We like skiing and eating but not necessarily in that order.

Why John Hempsey chose Les Arcs area

We've been going to Arcs 2000 twice a year every year since 1999. We love it. It's a twenty minute taxi ride from Bourg St Maurice (Eurostar) and you always get snow there. We're taking our grandsons this year! We used to stay in a hotel but an apartment is so much more relaxing. You can spread out, cook food and watch TV, sit in front of the log fire. It's been great watching the resort grow and add new restaurants. 1950 twinkles below us at night time.

What makes this apartment unique

It's 50 metres to the first ski lift. Arcs 2000 always has snow. The apartment is very cosy and we enjoy all the pictures and things we've put on the walls over the years. We tend to eat out at lunch time and stay in with food, wine and a dvd at night time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at your Chalet, we were very impressed with the Chalet itself which was ideal for us and of an extremely high standard in its condition, presentation and equipment. The location is terrific and we were blessed with perfect skiing conditions which made for a truly wonderful holiday.

Although we didn't see much of Zealous the only issue we had was with a broken shower head when we arrived which was dealt with most efficiently by them. In terms of any suggestions we could only think of a couple of very minor things, a fire guard would be useful as we did light the fire on a couple of occasions and were slightly concerned that there was no fireguard to put in place when we went to bed, we were for some reason short on knives (which Zealous also sorted out), a pair of scissors would be useful and some larger water glasses would be good, but these were very very minor points! Overall, a wonderful chalet and thank you very much for allowing us to rent it! Regards Mark

Great chalet for family ski holiday

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was great for our family of six - spacious bedrooms, plenty of bathroom facilities, well equipped for cooking and dining. There was always plenty of hot water and the chalet was always comfortably warm.

The reception staff were very helpful. When our arrival was delayed, they responded promptly and positively to a hastily sent email; when we needed to consult a doctor for an injury sustained on the slopes, they assisted us in locating the medical practice, faxed a prescription through to the pharmacy and explained the procedure for collecting the prescription. They were always pleasant and seemed pleased to help.

We loved the skiing at Arc 2000 and the ease of accessing the slopes from the chalet (especially once the button lift was opened on our third day). Everything we needed during our stay was easily accessible and we liked being able to visit prettier Arc 1950 in the evenings via the nearby gondola.

John’s prompt and detailed responses to my questions before booking the chalet gave us confidence that this chalet ‘fitted the bill’ for our first family skiing holiday and we were not disappointed. From John’s suggestions, we used Ben’s Bus from Lyon airport to Bourg St Maurice and would recommend this to others. We also got an excellent deal on ski hire from InterSport, with discounts for pre booking online, for using Ben’s Bus and for being a large family.

We would definitely return to this chalet and would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Property was great - as advertised. Warm and welcoming and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyable stay. Property has plenty of room (we were a party of 4 adults and 4 children). Location is great, just close to button lift, ski shop, couple of restaurants, small supermarket. Delivery of pastries from chalet de neige worked very well and was great every morning. Swimming pool etc at chalet de neige was nice. Overall, a really good stay.

A warm and clean chalet with a perfect location for skiing, dining and drinking.

  • 5 of 5

John was very polite answering any query or question I had. He has been very communicative, concise and very quick to respond. Often emails were sent with activities or, for example, firework displays which when viewed from the chalet balcony were very very good.

For no reason I assumed the chalet was detached, it wasn't but you would have never thought otherwise. Very quiet with no bother from the guests upstairs. The chalet was clean and tidy upon arrival with no untoward smells etc. It was very comfortable and had a really warm feeling. The rooms were spacious, like the rest of the chalet, with extra beds under the bunks and sofa if there was more than 8 guests.

We were situated a 2 minute walk from a button lift right into the middle of the ski area and when the snow was on the ground we even skied all the way back to the chalet. The get to arc2000 it was a 5-10 min walk on the evening and the get to arc1950 was the same walk with a 30second cable car ride down.

I am very pleased with my trip and will definitely be returning to this same Chalet.

Cannot recommend enough

Great apartment in Arc 2000

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week in this very super apartment - the kitchen is well equipped, the beds were very comfortable and plenty of bathroom space for all 6 of us. The DVD collection was also appreciated when the unseasonal snowfall arrived at the end of the week. The staff at Chalet des Neiges were helpful, and the daily bread and croissant deliveries to the apartment door were a fantastic service. We didn't use the pool or sauna but it looked good. Underground parking was a bonus as there was a reasonable snowfall the night before we left. The location is really very convenient with a short drag lift up to the main ski meeting point and also close to the short bubble lift down to Arc 1950, which we thought was a very attractive bit of the resort, with pleasant bars, ski shops and supermarkets. We would be delighted to book it again next time we come to Les Arcs.

Great Apartment in Les Arcs 2000

  • 5 of 5

Having been skiing ever year for over 20 years, have come to appreciate and understand what makes for a great chalet/ apartment. And this is one. It is a well located, well furbished apartment in Les Arcs 2000. A short walk round the corner gets you to a free button lift to take you up to the base of the main ski area. A nearby lift caters for when on foot. Depending on the amount of snow one can ski right back to the front door. The apartment itself has 4 well appointed bedrooms and copes very well with 2 families (4 adults and 5 children (aged 7-14) in our group) No low ceilings! No problem with the bathroom facilities and never a problem with a lack of hot water. The wifi added this year was a boon, especially for the kids. The kitchen is sufficiently well stocked with pots pans etc that serving up meals every night was not a chore. A large table meant all 9 could sit down together without being cramped. The dishwasher coped with the fall out from the meals. There is enough comfortable seating for relaxing in the evening. There is access to parking and a pool in the complex was also a hit with the kids. Your daily bread can be ordered for delivery to the apartment at the reception in the main complex - usually arrives by 07:00. The biggest problem in giving this 5 stars, which is well deserved, is increasing its popularity and thus making it harder to book. Hey- ho, truth will out!

Lovely, well thought-out flat

  • 5 of 5

Great flat! We loved the proximity to the ski runs and the layout of the flat made it the best flat we have ever rented. We are a group of six people and this flat gave us all the space and facilities we required in comfort. Plenty of bedrooms, sinks and loos. Not only that, the living, kitchen and dining space was a good size too. The flat is nicely decorated and there was lots of storage too. It was great having the bread delivered to the door each morning. The staff at Chalet des neiges were very helpful. We would definitely rent the flat again if we return to Arc 2000. Thanks John for all your kind help and advice.
