Overview

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 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.

Wonderful. Stylish alpine feel with lots of attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant apartment. Amazing space for socialising inside & out. All of us had lunch together on the sunny balcony overlooking the slopes everyday. We could easily have sat out there all day longbut had to do pesky skiing. Great kitchen, lovely open plan area. Comfortable rooms, two with views of Mont Blanc with the children found very exciting. We love Les Arcs & we will definitely return to this apartment to enjoy more holidays.

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.

Owner's Response: Glad you had good skiing in the middle of April and enjoyed the views from the balcony! Thanks for visiting us.

Ski and sun ;-)

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay at this apartment. This trip was later in the season than we are used to and we were delighted to find that the resort is big enough and high enough to find great skiing on any day however sunny. We would recommend following the sun in spring by skiing plagnettes, teppes and plan des eaux via St Jacques and Arcabulle in the morning then moving to arandelieres and grand col via Varet in the afternoon. Our main challenge was that the balcony and local wines were so tempting in the afternoon that it took a while to get out after lunch.

Loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We've been to a few places over the years and this has been the best. We've already rebooked for next year. The weather was fabulous so we had lunch sitting out on the balcony most days. There were enough tables and chairs for all of us to linger over a glass of local Chignin. The big fridge was great for us. We have children and tend to eat in a lot. The kitchen was really well equipped with quality knives. The third and fourth bedrooms were a bit on the small side but within the bounds of normalcy for the Alps. The living room was spacious with enough seating for us all to sit around comfortably. John was great and very helpful.
