ARC 1950, A UNIQUE RESORT IN THE ALPS

A mountain holiday for families unlike any other

Best view of the Mont Blanc

Mont-Blanc has found its most beautiful setting...

The most recent of the 4 sites of the ski resort of Les Arcs, Arc 1950 is a mountain village like no other in Europe.

Built just 15 years ago in Savoie, in the heart of the French Alps, this resort is incomparable through its concept, its perfect position overlooking Mont Blanc in the Les Arcs area, its proximity to mountain biking and hiking trails, the activities it offers and the similar level of quality of its 5* accommodation throughout.

With its 3900 beds, it is like a cocoon where everything you need is at hand.

The decor, brightly-coloured facades, high-end services, completely car-free streets, exceptional entertainment programme, pretty boutiques and varied restaurants make Arc 1950 a harmonious place where the gentle way of life of Savoyard villages is combined with the convenience of modern living and services in one of the largest resorts in the Alps.
