My husband and I stayed with Chantal and Jacques in Les Arcs for a week this November, and it was a highlight of our 5 week trip to Southern France. The apartment is spacious, very clean, beautifully decorated, with a wonderfully equipped kitchen and a very comfortable bedroom. With its second bedroom it would easily accommodate a family of four. The apartment opens to a covered patio with place to take morning coffee, and then to a beautiful garden and pool area.
Although the weather was a little cool during our stay, we really enjoyed the outside area, and I can only imagine how wonderful it would be in slightly warmer weather.
There are many things to do in and around this charming town. We spent a full day exploring the medieval part of Les Arcs with the magnificent views and architecture. The center of Les Arcs hosts a wonderful farmers market and we bought and cooked some of the best vegetables we ate on our trip.
Les Arcs is on the main rail line (Nice-Marseille, Nice-Lyon, Nice-Paris) and is an excellent home base for day trips to Nice or Antibes, which are an easy one hour train ride away.The station is walkable from Chantal and Jacques apartment, but you can also drive and park near the station if you have a car. Do not miss the Abbey Thornet if you have a car, it is about an hour drive.
The owners, Chantal and Jacques were wonderful hosts. They provided many helpful tips about the town and its surrounding, made sure we could find our way around to the center of town and to the supermarket. In addition they were kind and generous with their knowledge of Southern France. Without ever being intrusive, we always felt as if they were looking out for us. This kind of experience is the joy of travel and we were so grateful to meet and spending time with these fine people. We can recommend this property without reservation and look forward to visiting again soon.
Thank you Chantal and Jaques for a wonderful stay.
