3 Bedroom Apartment, 75 M2, WIFI,Quiet Location, Car Parking, Underfloor Heating
A 3 bedroom modern and well equipped apartment (plus sofa bed) in a quiet residential street conveniently located 10 minutes walk from the lovely pedestrianised town centre and the funicular to Les Arcs. WIFI now available. Apartment is light, spacious and provides ample space for up to two families/ eight people.
There is one double bedroom, 2 twins plus double sofa bed so up to eight people can be accommodated.
Separate WC and bathroom with bath and shower.
Modern kitchen with dishwasher and microwave connected to welcoming large open plan living and dining area. Large flat screen TV with some cable channels through internet and a separate DVD player with a small selection of DVD's. For children (and some adults!) there is a Wii sports player too.
Separate ski/ bike storage. Underfloor heating (winter). Small outdoor area for relaxing in the sun! Compared to many ski apartments this is much larger and quieter appealing to families and groups of friends. For skiiing a car is recommended though it is possible without (for staying anywhere in Bourg a car is the best bet as the car park next to the funicular means you do not have to walk with skis though town and over the railway)
Suggested walks and fantastic recommneded local restaurants are provided in a welcome pack and more than happy to answer any further questions about the apartment/ area.

About Graham Robinson
We have been travelling to the mountains and the Alps for a number of years. Mainly for skiing in the winter and walking/ cycling in the summer. Wanted a good value base to explore and get to know the area in more detail.
Graham Robinson purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Graham Robinson chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice
Looked at a number of different areas but for Bourg as we wanted amenities outside of the main seasons (autumn here is spectacular), together with good transport links and decent value restaurants. Also as a budding tri-athlete the 50 metre outdoor pool, swimming lakes and number of cycling challenges - Cold'iseran, col de Madelaine, Cormet de Roseland and the Mt biking in Les Arcs are asking to be ridden! For the family there are gentle walks and the flat cycling trail to Aime so everyone is happy!
What makes this Apartment unique
We were attracted to the extra space this property offers compared to some of the small studio ski apartments. It ticked all the boxes for us - quiet yet close to the amenities. It also allows for exploration of the surrounding area - particularly into Italy over the Petit St Bernard and there are many ski alternatives if we tire of Les Arcs - Le Rosiere, ValD'isere etc.

Our 4 week stay was very good
Apartment location is good easy to walk into Bourg or even Funicular up to arcs 1600.
Apartment had everything we needed for our stay - we had no problem with the one bathroom as there was only 2 of us most of the time. When our friends visited we had to have a system for use of the bathroom and with 6 people it may be a bit of a problem.
Only negative feedback would be no wardrobe in 1 of the bedrooms and the views would benefit from the hedge being lowered - but that is only my personal preference!
Would definitely return next year if still available
Lovely spacious apartment, we really enjoyed our stay.
Six of us stayed at the property over New Year and it accomodated us all with lots of rooms for everyone to chill out in the evening comfortably. The wii and fast wifi was a nice touch!
Finding the apartment was easy and even with two cars we always managed to park right outside all week.
Only a 5 min drive to the funicular with large cheap car park (€3 per day) made getting to and from the ski area very easy.
Les Arcs is a fantastic resort and despite very poor conditions with warm weather and limited snow, there was still lots of skiing to be had.
Thanks Graham, we'd definitely stay again.
Perfect skiing week
Very good location and value. Lots of parking space and fast internet connection. Everything was as we did expected or better. Good instructions for visitors.
Easy and short way to drive Les Arcs funicular or visit one of the other skiing resorts nearby. Unlimited skiing possibilities in Tarentaise valley - the best ski valley I have ever visited.
Shops, restaurants and a wide range of other services available nearby in the center of Bourg Saint Maurice.
Excellent location for ski holiday.
Apartment was in quiet and convenient location perfect for ski holiday. Plenty of room for our family of five including 3 teenage boys. Would recommend and will return in future.
A great week!
We loved this apartment. It's modern, clean and spacious; even with a group of 7 there was loads of room. The living space is excellent - the kitchen is large and well-equipped, the dining table easily accommodated us all and the Wii was a winner!
The apartment is in a quiet apartment block - a 5 minute drive from the funicular (free parking), a 10 minute walk from town (which has excellent, great value restaurants) and the skiing was brilliant; with the Paradiski lift pass we skied Les Arcs, La Plagne (via the Vanoise Express), Val d' Isere and Tignes.
Overall, a great week: lovely accommodation, delicious food and superb skiing. We thoroughly recommend the apartment
Thanks for the review and pleased you had a great week.
Everything we needed!
We really enjoyed staying here. There was plenty of space for our family of six and all our ski/snowboard gear. We have skied in this area three times now and we love the town and the slopes. We have always enjoyed plenty of snow in the winter and easy access to the slopes via the funicular which is fast and convenient.
The apartment is perfect for our needs since we eat breakfast and dinner as a family. The pictures don't show the third bedroom with two twin beds, but this is perfect to split the siblings and give all plenty of space. Nice, quiet location with adequate parking. There is additional storage outside for ski gear, bikes, etc. Having only one bathroom was tight for showers, but easy to rotate a schedule.
The kitchen had everything we needed and the owners were very responsive when we needed something. Able to cook all the meals we desired and the dishwasher saves us lots of time to have fun or just relax.
Thanks for making this apartment available, we will return!!
Many thanks Jean and pleased your enjoyed your stay. Look forward to your return visit - maybe in the summer for the mountain biking and outdoor swimming!
Bourg St Maurice is a small town with Eurostar links to Northern Europe. It is only a 7 minute funicular ride from the ski spot of Les Arcs/ La Plagne and within easy driving (or bus) to Val d'isere and Tignes. It is the French national centre for kayaking and has excellent tennis, swimming (50 metre outdoor) and world class road cycling and mountain biking. It is an excellent touring base, close to Italy, and has superb mountain walking. The town is small but has superb VFM restaurants, good shops and a cinema.
