My wife and I bought our apartment when Sources de Marie was being built. Our children ski raced at National level on the “dry slope” circuit in the UK and as school pupils raced on snow in The British School Boys and British School Girls Races for many years. Our son progressed to race on the slalom circuit on snow (getting his FIS points down to double figures) and lived and trained in Austria for 3 years. He was then our countries No 1 ranked snow skier … regrettably that is not the same as No 1 in Austria, France etc!. We chose our apartment because it is truly ski in ski out. In the summer we have our Mountain Bikes on our terrace and in Winter we ski back to the apartment patio door for coffee! We are at the quiet end of the village. We step two metres and we are on the piste running through 1950 which leads directly down to 3 fantastic lifts that connect directly to our area, Arc 1800 and Arc 1600. In addition, the Vanoise Express linking Les Arcs to La Plagne is only 1 lift away from our door! I am a self employed shop owner and my wife is a “retired” Banker. We usually drive to our apartment and have discovered some great stop overs to make the journey enjoyable. (each time we wish there was not the 4 hour drive from Dover back to our home in Wales!) Arc 1950 is somewhere we delight in sharing with family and friends.
