Completed in 2007 Arc 1950 is the newest resort of Les Arcs. 'The Arc 1950 Village' is a unique concept in Europe. Charming and car-free, it includes eight 5* ski-in/ski-out apartment residences built in Savoyard style, but with the colourful overtones of Tremblant and other North American resorts each with different design theme (as it was built by the Canadian company, Intrawest).
Les Arcs consist of the four resort areas Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and Arc 2000. They are linked to La Plagne via the double decker Vanoise Express cable car which gives access to La Plagne to form one of the largest ski areas in France – Paradiski (Les Arcs/Peisey-Vallandry/la Plagne).
Paradiski has more than 425 km pistes and a glacier - the area has something for everyone. The ski area is a high altitude area between 1200m and 3520m, and with 70% above 2000m you are highly likely to have plenty of snow during the season. The village also provides an abundance of other winter activities, including off-piste skiing, snowshoeing, and sled-dog rides.
Our lovely 4 room, 3 bedroom apartment, which has accommodation on 2 floors, is located on the top floor of the Auberge Jerome residence in Arc 1950. It is spacious by French standards (71m2), luxuriously furnished and has a lovely mountain view looking out to Bois de l'Ours piste. Auberge Jerome offers convenient ski-in, ski-out access, ski lockers, lift and free use of the relaxing spa facilities including steam room, sauna, and small outdoor (heated!) swimming pool & jacuzzi and gym area. There is also a gorgeous Deep Nature Spa® Arc 1950 in the village (payable locally) offering a range of treatments and relaxation. In the compact car-free Arc 1950 village are an excellent bakery, well stocked supermarket as well as a good selection of bars and restaurants, ski school, ski-hire shops, lift pass office. A varied entertainment programme is offered each week.
