Excellent time in 1950's SAS

"A group of 9 of us stayed in the Raddisson apartments in 1950 7/1/08 for 1 week.

We booked 2 apartments one sleeping 6 the other 6 but put 4 in one an 5 in the other so as not to be sleeping in the sitting room.

We opted for the slightly more expensive rooms and I think it meant we were closer to the hotel spa, which was great. We could walk in 1 min from our room to the spa and wonderful outdoor pool, without having to go outside.

The accomodation is excellent.

The resort is excellent, I personally have stayed in 1950 once and 1800 3 times.

We could ski both into and out of the ski locker room at the base the hotel which was excellent, no walking in boots!!

But we all found that the restuaraunts were pretty average at best, and expensive for what you got. Take away pizza were good however.

We went to bourg st maurice one afternoon and stocked up on food and drink at 1/4 of the price in the village and cooked in our aparments.

We took the table from 1 into the neighbouring 1 and sat 9 of us around 2 tables with plenty of room.

I would highly recommend this place, bar the expensive pubs and restaurants.

Stayed in March 07 for the third...

"Stayed in March 07 for the third time. Hotel is beautifully decorated in a traditional mountain style.

Staff were extremely helpful - especially Tomas, the concierge who always had time for a chat. Restaurants nice too, the Italian "Valentino" being the best in my opinion.

Skiing was good for all abilities and very extensive. We hardly did a run twice! We even managed a day’s skiing in Val d'Isere (only having to take a 10 minute taxi ride from Villaroger).

I would thoroughly recommend and I'll definitely be going back. Don't go expecting mad après ski though.

Great location and accommodation but a word of warning

"Stayed in two bedroom appartment with family (incl two teenage boys) together with two other families last week. Brilliant accommodation - will be hard to beat in France. Previous reviews say it all - no complaints whatsoever. You couldn't ask for more. Plus safe for kids as no cars around - kids tended to go out sledging or use small hotel pool every night

But things to watch

We were there first week of Easter - and restaurants get booked out quickly - they are also of varying quality. Would recommend il valentinos and the Restaurant Les Arcs (not sure if correct name - but its a short 10 minute walk up ski slopes from Arc 2000 (accessed by gondola from 1950 which is open to 10.00pm) - brill atmosphere and food. Luigis was okay only. Chicanos was good for a burger. So book what restaurants you want the first night you arrive. We ate in three nights and as others say the local Spar is excellent (but pricey as they always are up a mountain)

Worst thing is ski hire. We paid twice what we expected for the two boys at Ogier Sports - not much choice. The other ski hire shop (Concept Sports would only take internet bookings and queues were horrendous on the Sunday morning ) So best tip if you don't want ripped off is to book with Concept Sports over the internet (accessible by lesarcs.com website - we paid 190 euros for ski and boot hire for each teenager at Ogier sports). Alternative of course is to nip up to Arc 2000 to get a better deal.

Arc 1950 is upmarket but good overall. We'll certainly be back to stay here. Skiing is excellent too

Pleasant and well equipped aparthotel

"The apartments are spacious for a French ski resort and very well equipped. Arc 1950 itself is well laid out, completely traffic free and genuinely ski in ski out. Spent last week here with my family and

had a great time. Good snow helped of course.

Fantastic apartments in a great little village!

"We stayed in the Radisson for a week in March and loved every minute of it.

We had a one bedroomed apartment for me and my partner and it was so spacious and comfortable we immediately felt at home here.

The kitchen was great with everything you need for self catering, including a dishwasher, iron and ironing board. The bedroom was lovely with large and very comfortable beds, and the living room area was very comfortable and spacious also. Half way through our stay we had clean towels, bedding, the room was cleaned, and even the pots were put through the dishwasher.

The amenities were great, the heated outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room were lovely after a hard days boarding. There is wireless internet connection available in the reception area if you wanted to take a laptop. And although we didn't actually use the car park , it looked very secure and is about £70 for the week.

A little about the village:

The whole village is ski in - ski out and has a lovely feel to it. We only ate in two restaurants, Il Valentinos was an average Italian and East was great - try the Menu Mongolian BBQ, absolutely fantastic and far too much for one person! Luigis was great for the happy hour and live bands. 'Melis snack' was a great stop for burgers/sandwiches/fries and the kebabs were a treat! We were lucky to be there for 'Enchantment week' where there were horse drawn sleigh rides for the kids, ice sculptures and fireworks at the end of the week. Last of all try the floodlit slopes on a Tuesday and Thursday until 7pm.

Great ski in - ski out location

"Spent a week at the Radisson in this purpose built village last week in March. Great location for families since village is traffic-free and all accommodation is ski in ski out.

Our group of five stayed in a two bed apartment which (compared to other ski location experiences) was spacious. Apartment was spotless and well equipped. Staff at hotel very attentive.

Village lacks atmosphere and restaurants are generally lack lustre and trading on a captured audience. Spar well equipped with both fresh and convenience food.

Ski area vast and varied - not so good for novices but for an intermediate group of skiers there's a vast range of runs.

The resort needs to invest in modern chairlifts and pods, however. During our say we had strong winds and fairly heavy snow which resulted in many of the ski lifts being closed. This caused huge queues. One popular chairlift (Belvedere) takes 25 mins. and has no cover to shelter you from the elements. They need to take a leaf out of Couchevels book.

Apart from that grip. Loved the hotel and the ski area and would return in the hope that they improve ski lifts.

Brilliant all around resort

"Having just returned from Les Arcs 1950 staying at the Radisson Resort, which lives up to its five star rating. We were a group of 8 people with four children aged between 8 and 14 years old. Its a traffic free resort and so child friendly.

We stayed in a 4 bedroom apartment which was wonderful. Loads of room for everyone. Linen, towels were all provided and changed mid week.

Heated outdoor pool and sauna etc was so clean and all included in the cost

The local Spar is fully stocked to cater for yourself for the week, loads of fresh fruit and veg etc

The resturants are really expensive and have to be booked however very good food, the Mexican was the best.

The sking for a mixed party was suited to all abilities.

The only down side of our holiday was our transfers, by first choice tour operator. We knew it was at least four hours however with pick ups and drop offs in Les Arcs 1800 it added at least 3 hours on to our transfer time.

1950 - The Resort - an objective view

"Arc 1950 is a manufactured resort by Intrawest, being built (two large yellow cranes remain in situ) immediately below Arc 2000 - the remaining blocks are due for completion by the end of 2007. This was our second consecutive year.

Accommodation: Good/Excellent although the rooms at the Radisson are not available until 5pm of the start of your stay.

Skiing: Good/Excellent with a wide range of pistes at both Arc 1950/2000 and over Arpette into 1600/1800 - the snow park is particular fun.

Costs: Generally quite expensive although you get what you pay for - 577 Euros for three adult passes, 76 Euros for a weeks parking etc..

Restaurants - we've now tried most of them over the two visits and they are generally poor. Manufactured food, served laconically with little style and only average quality. One get's the sense that the kitchens were built to cater for only average quality fare assuming that the captive audience will accept it. Having a Dolce and Gabana outlet is a symbol of Intrawest's aspirations for this resort but they really need to sort out the food to achieve any such type of reputation - especially with type of clienmts that they hope to attract. Owners of units in the development won't be impressed. The l'Arc restaurant on the slopes above 1950 is a startling excpetion with great food, brilliant ambiance and fantastic service - no wonder it is fully booked days in advance.

Shame really that the 'disneyesque' resort concept which is fine, is failed by a 'Macdonaldesque' attitude to restaurant food.

Thankfully the little Spar in the resort is well stocked and the apartments allow self catering of a resonable standard.

Great Apartments

"Could not fault Auberge Jerome. Apartment was magnificent, very well equipped and spotless. The kitchen facilities were excellent which was just as well as we only ate out twice in a week because the quality of food in the restaurants Luigi's and Chicanos in 1950 was nothing short of appalling."

"Gorgeous clean and new lovely apartment well stocked with utensils even a dishwasher and use of a washmachine and tumbledrier. It is in a great ski - in ski-out location. The internet access was great as my husband took his laptop and could catch up with work. 1950 itself is quite small with only a few restaurants to choose from and the spar was quite expensive compared to the supermarket we visited at St. Bourge Maurice as we had a car. The parking at the hotel cost seventy-six euros for the week but was safe and secure. Overall, a brilliant stay would go back again and thoroughly reccomended."

Great Accommodation But .......

"It's true what they say about the French, they couldn't organise a proverbial ----up. Les Arcs 1950 is a lovely little resort, bags of charm that it's larger neighbours certainly lack and it has fantastic accomodation. We stayed in the Radisson, a family of four in a two bed apartment, with genuine ski in ski out access. So if Les Arcs is so good whats my gripe? The restaurants in 1950 are disappointing. The Mexican is inedible, the Savoyarde grim, the Chinese strange, Luigis not great, the only bright spot was the Italian pizzeria. Why do they build these fantastic resorts and not put any thought into famillies? Let's face it, if you've got young or teenage kids they want a burger (it doesn't have to be fast food), I would have expected the Canadian developers to have at least one North American restaurant a'la Tremblant.

The skiing was great, Les Arcs is a fantastic skiing area for all abilities. Although most of the blue runs are actually green, boarders beware some long flat runs.

The trip to La Plange is a must - the kids loved the double decker cable car. The trip there and back can easily be tackled by a competent beginner.

Fantastic Holiday

"Just returned from a fantastic week at the Auberge Jerome in Radisson 1950. The accommodation was really well equipped, even down to the fluffy bath robes and classy toiletries, and we enjoyed doorstep skiing onto superb slopes. All the facilities of the village were within 100 yards - friendly bars and restaurants,ski-hire,bakery,and the local Spar.What a wonderful change to find a French ski resort full of character. Certainly the best skiing holiday our family have ever had."
