Directly on the slopes, the epitome of ski in, ski out convenience and still within walking distance to the centre of Arc 1800. You can ski to and from the Hotel Aiguille Grive each day, located on the crossroads of two blue runs it's easily accessible from most areas on the piste map. And with the secluded location, up on the mountain, comes the spectacular views. The chalets and hotel take full advantage with plenty of glass throughout the wooden buildings and huge sun terraces to relax on.
There are seven chalets in total, six residential and the seventh is the main hotel with the reception, restaurants, lounge bar and sun terrace. Each is connected via a covered walkway. The chalets are booked as a whole; each having 4-6 double rooms. Or you can stay in one of the 18 hotel rooms, each with a private balcony and mountain views.
Truly a boutique hotel, combining the services and attention of a 4-star hotel with the luxury and freedom that having your own chalet entails. The best of both worlds. Think open fires, private chefs and mountainous surroundings. We recently read a TripAdvisor review that summed it up nicely: "If you are looking for a great location... on the slopes, ski in ski out, shortest walk ever to the equipment lockers, very comfortable accommodation, great food and terrific customer service - then this is the place for you." The simplicity of the idea behind the Aiguille Grive Chalets Hotel is what makes it stand out.
What we like
- Ski in, ski out convenience
- Private chalets with 4* hotel service
- Fantastic food and spectacular views
- It is a 15 minute walk to the centre of Arc 1800 - party hounds be warned
- You can hire a private chef for your chalet - additional costs apply

Les Arcs is best for intermediate and advanced skiers. Though beginners are also well catered for. The link with La Plagne gives the ski area 425km of pistes. However, the lift is on the outer reaches of both Les Arcs and La Plagne. To get from Les Arcs accommodation to the centre of La Plagne requires a lot of mileage so you may not want to do this every day.
