The closest town to Les Arcs is Bourg Saint Maurice. This is easily accessed via the funiculaire that runs everyday during the Winter and Summer seasons. There is a friendly local community and a few large supermarkets. There is also a swimming pool, train station, cinema and various bars and restaurants. It's lively throughout the year and there are some lovely local festivals and a Saturday market. To get to the funiculaire you can take the free bus (navette) to Les Arcs 1600.
There are several decent restaurants in 1800 (most bars also do food and Bar King Mad is very good). Le Chic Mama next to the pharmacy in Charvet is of a very high quality, Savoyard food with sophisticated twist. Le Parenthèse in Les Villards is a wonderful new addition to the restaurant scene and doesn't serve Savoyard food. If you have kids and just want to feed them good food quickly, there are 2 tex mex restaurants in 1800: Le Benji's in Villards and The Mountain café in Charvet. There are also 2 asiatic restaurants, if you want something a little different to cheese, meat and potatoes. There is Killucru sushi bar in the Quiksilver shop on the Villards main street and just opposite there is the Nouidle, both serve excellent quality dishes and do take away, but you will have to fork out your wallet for the sushi because fresh fish does not come cheap!

The Mont Blanc is visible from all of the Les Arcs villages but the view of Europe's highest mountain is viewed best from 1800 from the square in Haute Villards. However, there is a more spectacular sight at the top of the Aiguille Rouge, the highest point of the resort. To access this breathtaking view you can take the Transarc bubble to 2000 and walk/cycle/ski to the Varet bubble. You take the Varet and then the Aiguille Rouge gondola (approx 45mins journey time in total depending on your level). You can also take the free navette bus from various stops around the resort to Les Arcs 2000 and walk to the Varet bubble from here. At the top of the Aiguille Rouge you will see a 360° view of the Alps, it is truly spectacular.
Things to Do Nearby
In the winter there is a vast skiing/snowboarding area that links up with La Plagne to create the Paradiski area, one of the largest in the world. There is freeskiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, dog sledding, sledging, skidooing and ice caves! In the summer there are lots of activities as well; swimming; hiking; mountain biking; cycling; horse riding; golfing etc. You will not be bored!
Book My Things To Do
There are 2 courses, both located in 1800. The Chantel 18 hole course and the Beauchet 9 hole course. They are walking distance in 1800 and can be reached by the free bus or chairlift from any other part of the resort.
Book My Round
Les Arcs 1800 is surrounded by some of the best skiing in the world. The closest lifts to the Charvet village are the Vagère and the newly installed lift Dahu. The closest lifts to Villards village are the Villards bubble which takes you to the top of the beginner slope/toboggan run and the Transarc bubble which takes you to 2000. From here you have easy access to anywhere on the mountain. If you take the Varet bubble to the Aiguille Rouge you'll arrive at the top of the longest run in Europe. Two places where you will find some of the best off piste in Europe, are the Aiguille Rouge and the Grand Col and they are easily accessible from the top of the Transarc. You should always take an experienced guide or instructor with you to avoid any accidents. You can also ski to the Vanoise express and head over to La Plagne for the Paradiski experience. The ski area is predominantly blues and reds with more black runs in 2000. If you're staying in the Aiguille Rouge appartments or around that area close to the Mercure hotel, you can easily hit the pistes by taking the unfrequented Charmetogger situated on your doorstep.

Because 1800 is the busiest of the villages there is more of a selection of nightlife to choose from. There are a couple of English bars in the square in Haute Villards, The Red Hot Saloon and Bar King Mad. They both offer live music and a fun, funky atmosphere. Lots of the British locals are seen having a tipple at Bar King Mad. Both of these bars have excellent sunny terraces. In Charvet the best bar is definitely Chez Boubous. A local's favourite spot for cocktails, sports, DJs and a brilliant atmosphere. There are also 3 different "clubs". There is the J.O. a club that offers live music every night, Le 73 which is an underground bar with free entry and reasonably priced drinks and there is Le Carrè in Les Villards. Le Carré has undergone a recent facelift and is looking at lot more respectable, unfortunately the drinks and door entry charge reflect this.
