Les Arcs forms part of the Paradiski ski area which also includes La Plagne and Peisey-Vallandry. Lovers of Les Arcs ski resort may have many superlatives to describe it, but one that everyone will agree on is definitely “unique”. This applies to everything from the unique design of the four high-altitude villages, Arcs 1600, 1800, 1950 and 2000, to the resort’s eco-credentials. These include a funicular linking Arc 1600 to the town of Bourg Saint Maurice at the bottom of the mountain.

Described as a “time-capsule of imaginative Modernist Seventies architecture,” Les Arcs accommodation includes sloping corridors, staggered balconies and buildings that curve in sympathy with the mountains. Arc 1950, built only a few years ago by American company Intrawest, has been described as an alpine Disneyland, offering a large choice of luxury residences and doorstep skiing. For Les Arcs we offer top ski apartments, as well as chalets and hotels. You can see suggestions split by accommodation type further below.

Les Arcs skiing too is pretty unique for its unusually well-proportioned mix of slopes and varied terrain, plus it's easy to reach off-piste, making it a perfect option for a mixed ability group ski holiday. Les Arcs chalets are modern apartments in most cases although there are a few beautiful old converted farmhouses to snap up as well. If you’re after nightlife, Arc 1800 bucks the trend with plenty of parties to choose from, but you will also find a good choice of bars in all the villages. All in all, a Les Arcs ski holiday makes a fantastic choice for anyone looking for something out of the ordinary, especially if you have a thing for Seventies architecture.
