Arc 1950, a unique moutain resort

The ideal place for winter holidays

View of the Alps and Mont-Blanc in Arc 1950

The most beautiful views to Mont Blanc

20 years ago, a totally new, ground-breaking and innovative mountain village concept was born. A pedestrian-only resort, with skis on, where the only sound to disturb the silence would be the crunch of skis in the snow.

Built in the heart of the French Alps, this ski resort is incomparable in its design, its ideal position facing Mont Blanc and its location in the Paradiski  area and on the biking trails in summer. Not to mention the homogeneity and quality of its residences, that are all classified 5*.

The decor, the facades with their shimmering colours, the charm of the little squares, the diversity and quality of the services proposed make Arc 1950 a harmonious place where the traditional life in a Savoie village is combined with the facilities of modern life and the services offered in the largest Alpine ski resorts.

With its 3 600 beds, it is like a cocoon where everything you need is close at hand

With its colourful facades, the charm of its squares and the diversity and quality of the services on offer, Arc 1950 is a harmonious place where the gentle Savoyard way of life combines with the modern facilities and services available in the biggest ski resorts in the Alps.

For a successful ski holiday, the Arc 1950 village offers a unique experience combining all the facilities of modern life with the charms of mountain villages. The resort is completely pedestrianised, making its streets an extension of the ski slopes in the Paradiski ski area. Skiers and residents of Arc 1950 can glide right from the door of their residence and return without taking off their skis. The ski slope through the village is marked by signs dedicated to a film star who has taken part in the Film Festival and is also a wonderful shopping route! You can take your shoes off right in front of the entrance to the shops! 

The heart of the Village is made up of around forty shops so that you can go window shopping with your skis on after a day on the slopes. Would you like to buy a little souvenir of your holiday in the mountains or bring back a Savoyard culinary speciality? You will find what you need in one of the village shops. Sweets or toys for the youngest, "Les Arcs France" souvenirs and mountain and Savoie products for the older ones.

And for the gourmets, there is a wide choice of restaurants! Between gastronomic dishes, Savoyard specialities, or vegan cuisine, you will want to try everything.
