Apartment in Les Arcs 2000, Savoie, Rhone-Alpes, France - 2 Minutes Walk To Slopes And Lifts
Studio ski apartment situated in the Paradiski area one of the best in the world , 2 minutes walk to slopes, ski lifts, ski school, restaurants and shops. The apartment is in Les Arcs 2000 which is a glacier resort with guaranteed snow during the season. Also being in a 3g area if you need to take a laptop. Not only does Les Arcs offer 420km of ski area, but it is also linked to La Plagne via the Vanoise Express cable car giving you another 300km of slopes. A free bus service is offered from Arc 2000 to Arc 1800 and 1600, with a free gondola ride to Arc 1950 resort. The pretty town of Bourg St Maurice is worth a visit via the free Funicular train. Apart from the great skiing, and views, Les Arcs has a great selection of restaurants and bars close by. Conveniently beside our apartment is a smaller selection of shops, a ski hire shop, post office, as well as the ice rink (favourite with the kids!). Great resort for beginners or experienced skier.

Great base in Les Arcs 2000

About Leslie Nash
We live in West Sussex and have three children, two now at university and one ten year old.
Why Leslie Nash chose Les Arcs area
We have skied in many locations but for the last ten years have favoured the paradiski area which we consider unrivalled in choice and variation for all abilities.
What makes this apartment unique
In choosing a ski holiday ( which we have become expert at over the years) the most important factor for us is accessibility to the slopes. Being able to easily get back to ski school meeting point and/or come back for lunch , rather than spend a fortune eating out is a must. It also means that if some of your party want to continue skiing and some are weary it is easy to be independent. Proximity to ski rental and shops is also a must. Put this together with a reasonably priced but comfortable apartment and you are on to winner

Great base in Les Arcs 2000
Had a great week at this apartment in Arcs 2000. We were super impressed with how helpful and accommodating the hosts were before our stay, it was really appreciated. The apartment is everything you need for a base to explore Paradiski. It's well located for accessing the slops, it's very clean, and very cosy and warm. A really super stay, would highly recommend.
It was a lovely apartment, small but with everything we needed including a comfy bed and fantastic views of the mountains. Great position.
4 stars out of 5!
We had a great stay, 4 friends for one week. double bed was very comfy. sofa bed and bottom bunk were comfy too. Top bunk a little hard and not the easiest to climb in and out of.
Was a lovely touch to have a TV and DVD player tin the flat too. perfect for watching ski movies in the evening to get you ready for next day!
Bathroom was good - powerful shower and a large radiator for drying ski items at the end of the day. Seperate toilet was fine, although the boiler protrudes quite a bit which can make it hard to use when standing up...
Kitchen and dining area did the job perfectly. two decent hobs for cooking, adequate fridge space and a big enough dining table for all 4 of us to sit round comfortably.
Location is great for exploring the resort. Going to and from the apartment with ski equipment can be a bit of a struggle at peak times. The lifts can be very busy so be prepared to walk up and down stairs at some points.
A few down sides - A slight lack of storage space (if bringing your own kit and equipment so have ski bags etc) and no wifi. 3G signal in the flat was quite poor too at times, but we were there during a very snowy week!
On the whole though, a great flat that did the job well. The flat owner was fantastic to deal with too - very quick to respond and provided a lot of useful information.
Everything you need
The accommodation is well located in Les Arcs 2000 for all conveniences. It is well spec'd and comes with all the comforts that you need to enjoy your ski holiday.
Fantastic apartment for family of four
We stayed in this apartment over Christmas and had a FAB time. The layout of the apartment suited our family extremely well and the size of the property was bigger than what we were expecting from the photos.
The double bedroom area was great. So many times have we slept on sofas, so this was a luxury! The duvet was deliciously warm and soft and arriving to the beds having been made and towels provided was very much appreciated.
The shower over the bath was always red hot and powerful. No dribbling shower here. The apartment was always lovely and warm too.
The games, DVD's and slow cooker were all well used. The short walk (and it is very short) was fine and not a problem for our children. The resort itself is great. The skiing area is vast and the town has a brilliant bowling alley that we enjoyed. The stroll and lift to Arcs 1950 was good too.
Chalet de l'arc mountain restaurant is a MUST visit. Make sure you go inside to appreciate the decor.
In summary, the apartment worked well for us and the owners were extremely helpful and responsive.
