About Angela Knight

I am a private owner and this is my own apartment which I let it out when I am not using it. It provides all the things that I want when I go on holiday, but often are not there. So there is coffee and tea and hot chocolate if you arrive late; lots of big fluffy towels;information about the resort; a stack of DVDs for quiet evenings in and a couple of sledges on the balcony which anyone can use.

Angela Knight purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Angela Knight chose Les Arcs area

I bought the apartment as we are skiikng family and love the fantastic ski area of the Paradiski created by connecting the slopes of Les Arcs with those of La Plagne. Arc 1950 is the pretty well designed and truly ski in/ ski out village. The apartment is in the Manoir Savoie residence which is the most spacious, has a great spa with full sized heated swimming pool, saunas and a fitness room. It is run as a 4* aparthotel by Raddisson hotels. From the ski room you ski straight into the main lift system and ski back through the village at the end of the day. From the balcony there is a wonderful view of Mont Blanc; it is quiet, but its only 3 mins walk to the centre of the village and all the facilities. The ski school is good; there are plenty of restaurants and facilities for children

What makes this apartment unique

When you arrive the beds are made up, towels and towelling gowns provided and a welcome pack. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms, large living room and fully fitted kitchen with oven, hobs, microwave, dishwasher and fridgefreezer. There is lots of storage; you will feel at home. The use of the spa is included as is the use of the business centre for those who need to keep in touch and use of the laundrette in Manoir.The apartment has a TV with several English channels, a DVD player and free WiFi. There is also a car parking space available in the car park underneath Manoir (payable separately) with a lift straight into reception. The reception is 24 hours for any queries and there is a restaurant in Manoir which does good breakfasts! I send my guests lots of info on Arc1950 when they book

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Just thought I would drop you a line to say what a great stay we had at your appartment. The Manoir is very convenient for everything and the facilities great. Thanks again for all the advice you gave us and we would certainly like to come back in the future." Helen



"This was our second year at this apartment and I can’t recommend it enough. From the views across to Mont Blanc, to the ski in ski out status that really is Ski in ski out, this place has it all. There are lovely slopes for beginners to intermediates and experienced skiers have a vast ski area explore. The village has a lovely atmosphere and a great range of restaurants, which can be supplemented by a quick free cable car trip up to Arc2000. We will certainly be coming back!" Lawrence



" our holiday there was enjoyed tremendously by all and as soon as flights are confirmed for next year, I will be in contact with you to make a reservation " Mike



"Just wanted to say your apartment was fantastic in Les Arcs and perfect for our holiday" Andrea

Lovely apartment. Very spacious, well equipped and comfortable. Wonderful views and only minutes from the super gym, sauna,steam room and pool facilities. Everything we needed was provided. Definitely the best and most luxurious ski apartment we have stayed in. Angela is quick to respond and very helpful. Angela provided very detailed and clear information about the apartment, 1950 and suggestions on routes to Les Arcs.

Arcs 1950 is a lovely village - well planned and definitely ski in/out. A croissant from the boulangerie (only moments away) is a perfect start to the day!

Plenty of varied ski terrain and mountain restaurants for everyone in our family. Also good for non-skiers with free shuttle buses, walks and access to some of the lifts.

In our opinion pretty much the perfect ski apartment and resort....

Marvellous

  • 5 of 5

This is a marvellous property, enormously spacious and right on the slopes. Skiing in and out is a breeze with all the services you would expect of luxury hotel without missing that personal touch.

The owners were extremely helpful with the booking. Having been skiing for over 20 years I can say that this is the best accommodation in its class I have had. The slopes are superb, the village is delightful and beautifully tucked into its own corner of the slopes. Instead of roads connecting restaurants, shops and accommodation, there are ski runs all linking to the main lift system without any fuss whatsoever.

At 2.5 hours from Geneva and Lyon and 1.5 from Chambery the apartment is ideally located linking not only to the entire piste map of Les Arcs but that of Le Plan as well.

A true delight.

Superb apartment in 1950

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for the second year returning two days ago. We have been regulars in 1950 since it was very first built, having previously owned two properties in the village in other buildings. We are very happy to say that this is a great apartment, very comfortable with a beautiful view form the master bedroom down the valley to Mont Blanc.

The building is one of the best two in 1950. The cleanliness and state of repair is top notch - in fact almost all things in the village are even better this season than before.

We stayed in the new 5* hotel in 2000 for a couple of nights before moving to Angela's apartment and, of the two, the apartment was far more relaxing and comfortable!

We hope to return whenever there is space for us.

In short - book this apartment for a stay in 1950 as you won't find better for four people in the village.

Fantastic apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Angela's apartment for the week before Christmas 2016. From booking in the summer all the way through until we got home, this has been an excellent experience. Angela was incredibly helpful about the resort, a font of knowledge and also took the time to update us 48 hours before on the piste conditions and where to get the best of the skiing in Les Arcs/Paradiski. The apartment itself is excellent. It would comfortably accommodate 6 (we were 5), the kitchen had everything we needed, the bathrooms were really nice. The beds were excellent, including the pullout sofa bed (which sometimes are a bit hit and miss). Lovely extra touches like robes, linen and some well received beers when we arrived. We are definitely booking up again, I cannot recommend this apartment and Angela highly enough. We have been home for three weeks now and still have the post holiday blues! Thank you Angela.

The Eurostar goes to Bourg in the ski season and TGV from Paris. The overnight couchette sleeper from Paris (about four times a week in the season but check).

Good choice of restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. Good comprehensive supermarket also in the village. Excellent wine bar (George's) and other bars. Several ski shops. Doctors surgery in the morning and evening. Cash machine
