Travel Options - catered ski chalet specialists in Les Arcs

Travel Options

There are numerous ways to get to us, depending on the size of your group, budget and over all preference.

Train Travel:

There is a choice from the following:

Overnight and Day Indirect rail services via Paris  (sleeper services and normal seats available)

Daytime Eurostar direct on a Saturday

Overnight Eurostar direct - overnight Friday night, return Saturday night

Overnight/Day Eurostar via Paris

There is a sleeper service giving you 8 days skiing. It leaves St Pancras on the Friday, you simply change trains in Paris (same station) for the sleeper and arrive in the resort around 7.30am.  For chalets in Plagne 1800 the station to get off is Aime, for Montchavin, it is Landry and for Peisey, Les Arcs it is also Landry.   It is also possible to take this service during the day using the normal TGV trains from Paris.

If the train does not stop at Landry  (ie. the direct day service) then it will stop at Bourg St Maurice.

Overnight direct train service

This service leaves London St Pancras or Ashford International Kent and travels directly to Aime, Landry or Bourg St Maurice without changing trains.  Travel is in a reclining seat as there is no sleeper service available on the Eurostar train so the overnight services can be a little uncomfortable and it arrives at 06h30 in the morning!!.  Be prepared to have breakfast at the café opposite the station as it is too early to enter the chalet as the previous guests will still be sleeping!  You benefit again from 8 days skiing.

There is also a day service which takes about 8 hours arriving around 18h30 just in time for dinner at the chalet.  This is the most civilised way to travel.   See  www.raileurope.co.uk

Please note for those requiring a transfer from the station to the resort  - you will not be picked up until 8-8.30am, you can have breakfast in the cafe opposite the station. We will arrange a taxi service for you if required.  Please contact us for prices. This will then allow time for the departing guests to vacate the rooms so we can clean. You can change in the garage or a spare room and leave your bags there while you go skiing. Rooms will be ready by 1pm.   On the last Saturday you will not be able to have a shower before your departure.

  • Hi, I am sorry its taken so long, but I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your staff. We loved the chalet. We had a fab time and could not have wished for more. Two very new skiers now hooked and one with rekindled passion. Thank you again Martin, Lou and James
  • Can you please pass on your thanks to your team, especially Kate and Loreen, for a great time we had. What a wonderfully spacious chalet in the lovely village, perfect for families. The food was perfect and plentiful, and the hosting was really friendly and relaxed. Many thanks Dominic, Janice and Murray Pearson
  • Thanks for a great week – your organisation was faultless with ski passes and lessons available as promised on arrival, the ski hire was so convenient being run “in house” and the quality met everyones requirements. Transfers were the easiest I have experienced in 30 years of skiing
