About the property

Penthouse Arc 2000, Fabulous views, 2 Minutes Walk To Button Lift and Pistes, Close To 2000, 1950 and all amenities

The property is in a wood and stone building of 6 apartments. It's on the edge of Arc 2000, overlooking 1950 with pine trees dotted around. You can go up the elevator to the restaurants and nightlife in 2000, or down the Cabriolet 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 like "ski gastronomique" with no fuss. So, it was important for us to have good skiing, near good restaurants and near ski lifts. Les Arcs has the longest piste in Europe (Aquille Rouge), with a great variety of easy and difficult pistes and a great variety of wide pistes, narrow ones, forest ones with great views down the, often mist shrouded, valley and of Mont Blanc. The apartment is a 2 minute walk from the button lift which gets you onto the slopes. If the snow is right you can even ski back to the building door but we were told off once by gendarme for skiing on the side of the road. It is right between Arcs 2000 and 1950. Close enough for access to the restaurants and bars of bot resorts and far enough away never to be bothered by noise.

What makes this apartment unique

The views are the best thing. The jacuzzi is so relaxing and also social with room for two. We like to leave lots of DVDs in the property for people to enjoy, especially for those days where the weather is too bad to ski and you can have guilt-free TV in front of the log fire. The local restaurants range from the cheap and cheerful, raclette and fondue places to the more cordon bleu.

The chalet was very impressive

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the chalet and the location is fantastic. It was very clean when we arrived but a number of the light bulbs had blown and we didn't have any light in the hallway for a few days and a couple in the living area were out too!

The kitchen and living area were brilliant on the whole and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked with utensils and additional niceties such as blenders.

The two double beds were a bit uncomfortable as the mattresses were very thin and the showers in the two en-suites were very cramped and not really big enough to stand up in. We ended up using the shower in the shower room off the hallway.

John (the owner) and the reception desk were helpful and they helped to resolve a wifi issue that was ongoing.

Thank you for our stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Chalet des Neiges are very good at replacing light bulbs, dishes, glasses etc. whenever they are needed. Glad you enjoyed the kitchen. We quite like the firmness of the mattress. The sloping roof in the ensuite bathrooms can be cramped for taller people and using the hallway showers is a good idea. The wifi was a frustrating issue. It was an issue for everyone on Orange in the resort. Thankfully, Orange has now fixed it and wifi is back up and running again. It was nice having you!

Amazing

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the chalet, the photos did not do the place any justice. It was bigger and nicer than we had expected.

The location was fantastic and we really enjoyed our stay.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We had great walks and cycle rides during this our summer vacation. The apartment was well equipped with wifi, TV etc. The balcony tables which sat 10 people were great for having lunch in. The owner was very amenable.

Lovely Chalet in good location

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of 9 and stayed here over Christmas 2016. The Chalet is very spacious and has everything to make your stay comfortable. It is in a good location with just a short walk to the nearest button ski lift. Good views from the balcony and only a short walk to the shop and pub.

Fantastic location, comfortable and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment right on the slopes. This was our second visit to Les Arcs and we stayed in a catered chalet last year. Staying in John's apartment was so much better - beautiful and spacious and lovely comfy sofas. Well appointed kitchen, great beds and amazing views. And the jacuzzi bath was fab after a day on the slopes. Couldn't recommend it more.
