Heart of the Tarentaise Valley Michael Bennett, Managing Director

"I can't speak highly enough about Les Arcs, having road tested the resort myself on successful family ski holidays. The Les Arcs ski area is huge with terrain to suit every standard plus there's also the option of skiing in La Plagne on a Paradiski lift pass. I'd recommend Le Village Arc 1950 for families - everything has been designed for convenience with ski schools, shops and restaurants close at hand plus a kids club and choice of swimming pools. "

Après Ski in Les Arcs

Arc 1800 is the liveliest of the Les Arcs sub-resorts with a wide selection of bars and night spots. The choice is more limited in Arc 2000 but there is, nonetheless, a small selection of lively pubs and restaurants. Le Village at Arc 1950 endeavours to offer more of an ‘experience’ in its après-ski with a selection of cafés and bars. Should you choose to venture to Arc 1600 for a change, you'll find quieter, family-friendly cafés and restaurants.

Our recommendations include: the cosy Etranger,  ‘rock cafe’ Le J.O. or The Red Hot Saloon Bar in Arc 1800; Chez Boubou, also in Arc 1800, has a British vibe to it and shows Premiership football matches; the Belles Pintes Irish pub or the Crazy Fox at Chalet Altitude in Arc 2000; and the O'Chaud cocktail bar in Arc 1950. 

There are nightclubs in Arc 1800 and Arc 1950 Le Village. In the latter they've gone for the inspired name 'Club 1950' which is located underneath the restaurant Chalet de Luigi.

For some après activities, check out the Mille8 development located just above Arc 1800 which features a toboggan run, freestyle run (for all levels), and an aqautic centre to appeal to all (indoor pool, kids water play area, slides, wellness area and gym).
