About Property Manager
We are two British families with children now aged between 24 and 18 who have skiied together for 20 years all around the Alps. We bought the apartment because we wanted to be able to return, summer and winter, with friends to share great holidays
Property Manager purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Property Manager chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice
When looking for a place to buy our priorities were the best chance of good snow (the village is at 7000ft and the top of the ski area at nearly 11000ft); easy access to slopes for all abilities (Les Arcs/La Plagne ius a bigger ski area than the 3 valleys with fantastic skiing for all); and a place that could really feel like home with sensible apres-ski facilities - all at a cost that does not break the bank. We think that Chalet Eidelweiss and the team at Chalet des Neiges who support it really deliver this. We were originally nervous that we might get bored returning to the same place, and David is a really excellent skier, but in fact the more we return, the more we enjoy it. It does not have all the swank of Megeve or Zermatt; or full on party atmosphere of Val - but for us, the skiing is better at better value!
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has easy access to the slopes, great facilities with plenty of space in the lounge and bedrooms; the spa & pool for the evenings or time off from skiing, and plenty of restaurant/bar options as it is as easy to get to 1950 (which shuts early!) as to 2000 (which does not)

Too much snow!
Unfortunately (for us) there was so much snow that we were unable to use the balcony or really appreciate the fantastic views from the apartment and on our first morning we couldn't actually get out of the chalet before someone came from reception to clear the piled snow from around the chalet door! The main reception area is right next to the Arolles Ski-Set (great for hiring ski gear) and opposite 'lifts' up to main (Arcs2000) ski area. It was unfortunate (again due to snow amounts) that the button lift direct to slopes was only operating on our last day and only 1 (of 2) lift alternatives was 'out of order' causing large queues at the busiest times.
The apartment itself was very well equipped with crockery, cutlery etc. although (surprisingly?) not an ice-tray to allow us to make ice-cubes for G&T. We found the apartment to be cosy (great open fire) and comfortable with a very convenient ski/boot store just outside our apartment although there was only one small (2 person?) bench which was OK for us (only 4 persons) but could have been an issue with bigger groups since 'no ski boots in apartment'.
We never really got to grips with the main room's underfloor heating even though we followed the 'instruction manual' but this didn't cause a problem since in the evenings we always had the open fire going and there was alternative heating. Our only other 'problem' was the fridge which didn't seem to get cold enough although the freezer section was fine.
None of our 'issues' detracted from a good week's skiing (+ a pool competition in the reception area) AND as well as the numerous birds, 2 Pine Martins visited our balcony one evening. Amazing!
Note: there is no Wi-Fi signal in apartment (although there is mobile phone reception) and whilst there are some DVDs in the apartment, the actual TV only has French channels. There is also a small selection of board games but (surprisingly?) no pack of cards.
I am glad you had such a good time despite the excess snow, which is when the spa and facilities can be a real benefit. I can confirm that the fridge is being replaced and will include an ice tray in future; and we will ensure that the playing cards are replaced! Hope to see you another year.
Beautiful chalet in keeping with the surroundings
I had a wonderful weeks stay at the chalet with friends. It was conveniently located with very close access to a drag life up to the slopes. After a day skiing the sunny view from the balcony was spectacular. My stay was made effortless thanks to the chalet being so well equipped and how helpful the staff at reception were. It was very handy having the ski locker just across the hall making early starts easier.
I'm looking forward to staying here again.
Good sized apartment and well positioned in the resort.
As a group of 8 friends, this was the perfect location for a very pleasant ski holiday. The apartment was in flawless condition, very clean and very well equipped to proportionate a very conformable stay. For example the location of the ski equipment storage is right opposite the apartment making it very easy to equip in and out. The location of the chalet in relation to Les Arcs is also great, literally ski in - I would only take the skis off at the door.
In terms of the booking and the arrangements was also perfect, straightforward to get the keys and everything even though we arrived quite late on Saturday. For a group of 8/10 people I cannot think of a better place to stay in Les Arcs - the resort itself is perfect.
As good as it gets
This apartment is perfect. More room than most skiing accommodation, and its all very comfortable and everything works! Location is ideal, use of the spa/swimming pool is easy and great, couldn't wish for more, we have rebooked!
Great chalet in a great location
We stayed here over Easter as two families together. Really lovely chalet only a few minutes walk away from the drag lift up to the slopes - perfect when skiing with kids ! The chalet had everything we needed for a very comfortable and easy stay with parking close by and the boot room just outside the appartment. The outlook is great and fantastic for a beer in the sun after skiing with good weather ! We had never skied Les Arcs before but will definitely come back and would recommend the appartment and the resort. PS The only WiFi is in the chalet reception but for us this was a bonus as less distractions for all !
Les Arcs 2000 has a superb snow record so get away from it all at the foot of the Aiguille Rouge (3226m), opposite Mont-Blanc. Gentle slopes for beginners and breathtaking descents for experienced skiers/boarders with 11 Black runs in Les Arcs 2000 alone. The resort is linked to La Plagne (should you feel the need) excellent ski lift network throughout the resort. Ski school, restaurants, bars, shops – something for everyone.
