Ski Line can offer you a choice in whichever village you choose as your base. Les Arcs 1600 and Les Arcs 1800 offer the best nightlife and views towards Mont Blanc which may well influence your choice… Arcs 1950 is an American built ski in ski out village with some of the best self-catered apartments available anywhere in the Alps. Peisey Vallandry is where the Vanoise Express double-decker cable car links to La Plagne which makes it very popular with guests looking to ski the full area.
All Inclusive Holidays In Les Arcs
The absolute flagship in all-inclusive ski holidays is provided by Club Med which explains why their hotels are increasingly the destination of choice for a winter holiday, especially for those travelling in groups or with families. Ski Line can offer 3 Club Med hotels in Les Arcs at Les Arcs 2000 (adult only) Arcs Extreme; A fabulous 4 trident hotel has opened in time for the 2018/19 season in Les Arcs 1600 (Panoramique) and their 3rd is at Peisey Vallandry which is close to the link over to La Plagne. With their fantastic value for money, inclusive packages, these holidays are a bit of a no brainer…we at Ski Line began offering Club Med ski holidays in 2008 and are über proud to be one of Club Med’s biggest ski specialist travel agents and the cherry on the cake came in 2011 when we were appointed Club Med Infinite agents. In layman’s terms this means that we and therefore our clients have access to special rates not available to many other agents, so when you buy from us you can do so in the knowledge that you have been given the best price available.
Snowboarding In Les Arcs
There is one excellent Terrain Park – The Apocalypse which is situated between 1600 and 1800 and it’s reached by a boarder friendly J Bar drag lift. It has been regarded for many years as one of the most advanced parks in the Alps and on a level footing with the one in Avoriaz. If snow cross runs are your thing, some can be found under Col de la Chal.
Restaurants In Les Arcs
Les Arcs’ eateries can be a tad uninspiring but panic ye not as there are some exceptions to the rule which are well worth seeking out. The choice and quality of the restaurants have improved over the years and there is now a much wider selection of restaurants to choose from. On the mountain – Le Bulle Café (The Bubble).
The vast terrace, often hosts live music, and a rather attractive , transparent igloo – so it’s a fabulous place to sit and enjoy this restaurant’s huge, cheap pizzas which are large enough for 2 to share, or delicious sandwiches and snacks, or indulge in one of their amazing seafood platters – a delight to behold! Le Bulle is to be found just before the base of the Arcabulle chairlift above Arc 2000.
Off the Mountain, you will find The Savoy… Don’t’ be put off by the name! This traditional French brasserie is in Arc 2000 where the restaurant and separate bar serve food and drinks until midnight. The generous menu features melt in the mouth steaks, escalope de Veau and lamb shank alongside typical Savoyard favourites such as fondue and tartiflette. It has a rather good wine list too.
Vegetarians, Vegans and those with special dietary requirements – Most restaurants have Vegetarian options on their menus and some are also on the catch-up with Vegan options too. There is also the excellent and increasingly popular Huski Catering company who will deliver delicious oven ready meals to your door which includes many Vegetarian, Vegan options – all you have to do is switch on the oven and pour the wine! We also recommend that you call any restaurant you wish to visit and ask if they are willing to adapt their dishes to accommodate your dietary requirements – many are happy to do so.
Apres-Ski In Les Arcs
Les Arcs 1800 is the main focus of après ski activity so this is where to point your skies if you are looking to party! Here you will find bars and clubs to suits everyone’s taste, whether you are looking for a quiet drink after the last lifts or want to party into the wee hours along with fellow wild things.
The Après Ski kicks off around the main square at Villards and continues the resort’s two clubs at the Charvet end. With so many places to choose from it is hard to settle on a favourite but Chez Boubou can certainly lay claim to this title. Over at Place des Villards revellers will find the Red Hot Saloon. This is the largest bar in the resort and is worth dropping in to enjoy some great live music in the evenings or if you prefer sport they show this on the massive TV screen. Bar King Mad dishes up delicious food served throughout the day in a convivial atmosphere. Diehards should make for Apokalypse, the largest and most popular club in Les Arcs. Spread over three floors the classic euro favourites pump throughout the building until 4am.
Activities Of The Piste
In addition to the excellent Mille 8 which is a great place for kids and adults alike where you will find leisure pool indoors and tobogganing outdoors. The resort also has 2 bowling alleys and a cinema and new for the 2018/19 season electric snowmobile racing for kids has been introduced at Les Arcs 2000.
