Les Arcs is composed of five districts, all situated from 815 - 2,000m. The oldest village, Arc 1600, is especially popular with families and beginners. Arc 1800, is the snowboarder and freerider's stronghold and offers a 360° panorama including Mont Blanc. Numerous bars and clubs can be found here, where guests can party until the morning hours. The relatively young village Arc 1950, thanks to the typical Savoyard wood and stone buildings, is also the loveliest of them all. Here, traditional and modern comforts are combined. True pros and thrill-seekers gather mainly in Arc 2000, as the most demanding pistes can be found there; providing a fantastic panorama view into the whole valley as well! Also part of this group is Bourg Saint Maurice, which lies in the valley. It is connected to close to Arc 1600 with a cable car and invites guests to spend time browsing in its many shops. The individual parts of the resort are connected by free shuttle buses or the via the cable car. Les Arcs also bears the "Famille Plus Montagne" certificate. Parents who want to spend a day for themselves can find child-care facilities here for children from 4 months.
