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

The most recently built village of Les Arcs, Arc 1950, is like a gold nugget nestling in the heart of the ski area.

Built just 15 years ago in the Savoie region 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

Restaurateurs in “green” mode

All the Village’s stakeholders want to contribute to preserving the unique environment of the ski area by committing to sustainable development.

After replacing all the lightbulbs in the car park with LED bulbs to reduce electricity consumption, it is now the turn of the restaurateurs to highlight ecological issues.

In the 8 à Huit, there is a deli counter with hot homemade dishes to take away in biodegradable containers, with bamboo cutlery. There is also a range of organic items with some produce sold loose.

The Wood Bear Café proposes generous gourmet cuisine with a selection of homemade dishes, local specialities and a range of organic, vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free choices. As part of its commitment to the anti-plastic campaign, plastic straws are being replaced by stainless steel ones. The restaurant will also be selling its own new coffee mugs with the Wood Bear Café logo to replace takeaway coffee cups.

For a rapid savoury snack, Cascade Sucrée is proposing several types of pasta with homemade sauces and a typical Savoyard speciality: the Hot Diot. Adapted from the famous hot dog, the Hot Diot consists of crusty bread and a diot sausage cooked in white wine.

Le Mazot and Brasserie 1950 have vegan / veggie options on their lunch and dinner menus.

Le Perce Neige restaurant receives fresh local produce daily so that it can offer balanced seasonal dishes.
