Cheap ski holidays Les Arcs - a dream in white!
ParadiskiIn the heart of the Savoyard Alps, above the Tarentaise Valley and with views of the Mont Blanc, lies the gigantic “Paradiski” network. With the link to the ski area around the Bellecôte glacier (3,417 m) and the Aiguille Rouge (3,226 m) via the fastest double floored cable car in the world, Vanoise Express, a very impressive ski network has been created, which belongs to the largest and most diverse networks in the world! A great advantage is that the piste is usually in very close proximity to your front door. The charming resorts have been modernised over the years and radiate Savoyard charm with the many chalet style accommodations dotted around. In addition, the resorts have plenty to offer with regards to shops, restaurant, bars and a huge choice of leisure activities, which every winter holiday should have!
Les Arcs is composed of five districts, all situated from 815 - 2,000m. The oldest village, Arc 1600, is especially popular with families and beginners. Arc 1800, is the snowboarder and freerider's stronghold and offers a 360° panorama including Mont Blanc. Numerous bars and clubs can be found here, where guests can party until the morning hours.
The relatively young village Arc 1950, thanks to the typical Savoyard wood and stone buildings, is also the loveliest of them all. Here, traditional and modern comforts are combined. True pros and thrill-seekers gather mainly in Arc 2000, as the most demanding pistes can be found there; providing a fantastic panorama view into the whole valley as well! Also part of this group is Bourg Saint Maurice, which lies in the valley. It is connected to close to Arc 1600 with a cable car and invites guests to spend time browsing in its many shops. The individual parts of the resort are connected by free shuttle buses or the via the cable car.
Les Arcs also bears the "Famille Plus Montagne" certificate. Parents who want to spend a day for themselves can find child-care facilities here for children from 4 months.
