Arc 1800 in a Nutshell
When choosing a ski resort for your next holiday value is always what people look for. In Les Arcs you are treated to a fantastic quality of skiing with a variety of terrains, a selection of quality nightlife and a price tag that you would be pleasantly surprised by. While the resort itself is small and compact there is a surprising amount of things to keep yourself busy for a week.
With suntrap terraces, an incredible mountain meal, toboggan run, bowling alley and swimming pool to name a few. One of the best things about the resort is that nothing is too far to walk. Most residences are only a few minutes walk from each other and all offer doorstep skiing or a very short walk to the slopes. If the wide motor-way pistes of Les Arcs aren’t enough to thrill you, head over to the beautiful treeline tracks of Peisey and Vallandry.
Places to Stay in Arc 1800
Les Arcs is a fantastically flexible resort for all group sizes and all accommodation standards. With standard accommodation available in room sizes of 2 person studios all the way up to 7 person apartments it’s easy to find a good value place to stay for any multiple of people without having to cover any empty spaces. The way the resort aptly “Arcs” around the piste means the majority of accommodations are within 5 minutes of the slopes, so no long walks for the lifts.
Standard accommodations are in abundance that’s for sure, but even a luxury stay in apartments directly on the piste with pool and spa facilities can be found for a bargain if you get your timing right.
Arc 1800 Best Bits
Touch the sky
The Aiguille Rouge is the highest point for miles around so, up here, you’ll really feel like you’re on top of the world. With panoramic views and Mont Blanc out in the distance, it’s the perfect opportunity for a photo shoot. Pictures done, it’s time to take on “The Great Descent”, 2000m of vertical descent in one run all the way down to Villaroger!
One of the scariest but most fun activities in Les Arcs is the toboggan track. The track is 3km long and is absolutely terrifying! You reach speeds close to the speed of sound, or so it feels when you’re in one of their sledges hurtling down underneath the Arpette chairlift. It’s a real laugh and one you should do with your friends or family and see who wins!
Dine and Disco
The mountain meal at L’Arpette is one of the best experiences to be had in the Alps. As après draws to a close you head back inside to the restaurant for a mighty alpine feast with plenty of cheese, meat and wine. Once bellies are full the lights go down and the music goes up for a lively alpine party before the gentle ski back down to resort.
Restaurants in Arc 1800
Pizza, for when nothing else will do! They do takeaway for when you can't face the world either! They sometimes deliver if they aren't too busy (which is rare).
A great restaurant on the slopes right next to the Edenarc residence. They provide the half board for the residence but are also open to the public. They serve from tasty food!
La Cabane des Neiges
Savoyard specialities in a cosy setting.
One of the worst-kept secrets among Les Arcs seasonaires! When you've had a hard morning skiing, go and get a Meli's Burger. Trust us!
Les Chalets de l’Arc
A great restaurant with stunning views of the surrounding mountains!
