LES ARCS INFORMATION & PROPERTY MARKET SUMMARY

A guide to Les Arcs

Les Arcs offers skiers different resort bases, 200km of local slopes and an impressive 425km when the rest of the Paradiski (Peisey-Vallandry & La Plagne) is included, linked via the double-decker Vanoise Express cable car. Each of the village bases in Les Arcs are named after the height at which they are located – 1600, 1800, 1950 (the newest) and 2000, and are traffic-free. This is a good ski area for families looking for convenience, as much of the accommodation is ski-in/ski-out. Arc 1800 is particularly good for beginners, where Mille8 opened in 2016; effectively a resort-within-a-resort, it has new nursery slopes, toboggan runs, swimming pool, spa, gym, and a restaurant.

Paradiski has the entire La Plagne complex in its universe, and the traditional villages of Peisey, Vallandry and Villaroger add some rustic charm to the offer. The closest airport is Chambéry at 1h30m by road. Access is also convenient from Bourg St Maurice with an easy transfer or the funicular up to Arc 1600.

Since most of the terrain is accessible and not too steep, the ski area is excellent for intermediates too. To expand your horizons, the Paradiski pass upgrade is recommended. Advaced skiers and off-piste explorers can enjoy the terrain above the Arc 2000 bowl, off the Varet Gondola or from the top of the Aiguille Rouge. A superb run is from 3226m down to the small hamlet of Villaroger at 1200m.

Cross-country skiers will find 5km of trails in Arc 2000, 5km in Arc 1800, and 44km in Peisey-Vallandry.

Après ski in Les Arcs

This is a fabulous region in the summer for hikers and mountain bikers. 200km of marked trails offer exceptional views of the valley, Mont-Blanc and Pierra Menta with a particularly rich fauna and flora for nature lovers thanks to its proximity to the Vanoise National Park.
