What we like:
- The incredible ski in, ski out location on beginner-friendly slopes. Ski down to the Saint Jacques chairlift each morning
- Fantastic mountain views from the terrace and pretty much every window
- Underfloor heating throughout
- Central open fireplace in the lounge/dining area with floating chill out space above
- Indoor pool with counter current and sauna with showers for late checkouts
- Local Mont Blanc craft beer on tap, a chalet not just for wine lovers
- The chalet is shoe free, we supply slippers for you or you could bring your own if you prefer
- Les Arcs 2000 is 100m away, but access is across a piste so you will need snow friendly boots
- As the chalet's in the middle of the piste we can only use the skidoo at certain times of the day - when you arrive/depart you'll either get the skidoo across the piste or the staff will be on hand to take your luggage by sleigh.
- One of the standard rooms is wheelchair accessible and therefore a larger 22m2
World's best new ski chalet 2018
Brand spanking new for the 2017/18 winter season and winner of the World's best new ski chalet 2018 at the World Ski Awards. Directly on the slopes of Les Arcs, Chalet des Cascades is not just ski in, ski out but built into the piste - arguably the best location in Les Arcs. The open plan lounge and dining area has a huge central fireplace as the focal point and a show kitchen to watch how the chefs rustle up your delicious food each evening. The height of this room is impressive with windows climbing up the two storey frontage flooding the space with natural light. The terrace spills out from the lounge with panoramic mountain views to enjoy. Relaxing around a roaring fire after a day on the slopes can only be topped by having a cup of hot cocoa or a large glass of wine in hand. Something we hope you'll enjoy as much as we do.
Ski in, ski out catered chalet in Les Arcs
As you can ski to and from the ski room door there's absolutely no walking in your ski boots required. In the evenings, it's 150m stroll uphill across the snowy piste (so pack your snow boots!) to the centre of Arc 2000, you'll be hitting the après of the village in no time. Alternatively, you can relax in the chalet pool and sauna, have some afternoon tea and cake around the fire or catch a movie in the TV lounge before the pre-dinner bubbles and canapes come around.
How the chalet's laid out:
The chalet sleeps 14 people in 7 rooms including a junior and master suite. Floating over the lounge at the front of the chalet is a mezzanine chill out area which links via a glass walkway to the TV lounge. In total, there are three separate seating areas so plenty of space to spread out. The second-floor areas are perfect to get away from it all, whether you get stuck into a book, crack out Kerplunk or catch up with an old series of Friends, it's yours to use how you see best. The whole chalet has a modern mountain style, full of cosy features and a pastel inspired colour scheme. As you'd expect, there's plenty of real wood or slate flooring with underground heating throughout the chalet - you can't beat toasty floors in the mornings.
View on map
There's not another chalet on the slopes in Arc 2000, the location does not get better. Sat on the beginner-friendly pistes means the chalet is accessible to all ski abilities, even if you don't ski it's just 150 metres from the centre of town. You will have to walk uphill across the piste however so make sure you bring some snow suitable footwear! The Saint Jacques chairlift is just below the chalet so you can ski down to the lift each morning. There is also a skidoo with a trailer to bring your luggage to the chalet or depending on your arrival/departure time the staff can also transport your luggage by sleigh (As the chalet is in the middle of the piste we can only operate the skidoo at certain times of the day).

Chalet des Cascades is a catered chalet which includes breakfast with hot options, afternoon tea and cakes, pre-dinner canapés with sparkling wine as well as a four-course evening meal. This is all prepared by in-house chefs in the open show kitchen, so you may get to watch them in action.
Each week there is a chalet night off, this is normally a Monday or Tuesday. On this day you'll still get breakfast as well as the afternoon tea, however, there'll be no evening meal. The chalet staff can help you with booking restaurants or simply recommending places to try.

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.
