About the property

Penthouse Arc 2000 Fabulous views 100m to Pistes, close to supermarkets restaurants

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.

John Hempsey purchased this apartment in 2007

Why John Hempsey chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

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 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. It is right in Arc 2000 but close to the Cabriolet which accesses Arc 1950. Close enough for access to the restaurants and bars of both 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 very relaxing. The apartment has its own Wifi which is included. 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.

Relaxing on the balcony after skiing is the best part of the day.

Bread, croissants, pain chocolate, pain au raisin etc can be delivered to your door each morning (joyous).

Mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect luxury for a mountain getaway. The chalet was invitingly furnished with an eclectic mix of inviting textures: wood, fur, leather, tweed. Natural stone in the decor enhance the sense of having found a mountain retreat. The chalet is light and airy with a fabulous balcony overlooking the alpine mountains and valleys. How calming to wake up to soft background sound of a gully waterfall and of cow bells echoing from the high pastures. There are indoor and outdoor dining tables as well as indoor and outdoor lounging furniture. Fully equipped new kitchens and bathrooms enhance the facilities. Highly recommended, Summer or Winter.

Another brilliant stay - great new kitchen and bathrooms

  • 5 of 5

Another trip back to this luxury penthouse which has been further improved since our last visit with an extra shower and a new kitchen. Arc 2000 was a great base for our family trip with plenty of skiing for all ages and levels.

Lovely holiday in a very comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable apartment, esp the living area with plenty of space to relax on squishy leather sofas after skiing, loads of DVDs to watch and a large dining table that easily accommodates 10. Great kitchen facilities, fab sunny balcony for lunch. Beds were a little hard for some but I found them comfortable. Mind the beams!! The showers were great but it was a bit tricky keeping the water in the shower space because of the design! Overall a really comfortable apartment in a great location and John Hempsey the owner couldn’t have been more helpful, replying to any questions promptly.

Couldn't fault the property. Absolutely loved it.

  • 5 of 5

It fitted all our requirements. There had been heavy snow before our visit and during our travel there which was quite a challenge. We had 2 days we couldn't ski but we relaxed and watched films which everyone said they wouldn't have enjoyed if the apartment hadn't been so nice .Love the underfloor heating which kept us lovely and warm. There is everything you could need at the apartment. We borrowed a raclette which was fun. Our family have skied at Les Arcs many times but have never seen so much snow. The only accident had was walking to the car early on the day of departure when our friend slipped on ice and damaged his shoulder. What a lovely apartment you have and thanks for your help

Fabulous Penthouse apartment in Arc 2000

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a family holiday in Arc 2000 and stayed in John and Vee's fabulous penthouse apartment. The apartment was very well equipped, extremely comfortable and the newly re furbished bathrooms were great. There was so much space in the apartment with the added bonus of 3 large sofas! We did not to light the fire once as the underfloor heating kept us warm and cosy.

The location was perfect. It was very easy to get to the slopes and to the many restaurants in 1950.

John had a printed booklet which recommended several places for us to eat, supermakets etc and this made life so much easier.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants spacious and very comfortable accommodation in the Alps.

Thank you to John and Vee. We will be coming back I'm sure!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment, fantastic position with great views of the ski area and mountains. Great facilities in the flat and use of the complex pool helped to ease the aches from skiing. Only down side was the low beams - but one learns very quickly and they are all part of the character.
