Arc 1950, heading for its 20th birthday, is set in the foothills of some of Europe’s best terrain for hiking, biking, and high alpine lakes. Its car-free village centre offers charming pedestrian piazzas and brightly coloured Savoie facades, perfect for a family summer holiday in the Alps.
Arc 1950 opens for summer adventures on 8th July 2023.
Framing Mont Blanc, all accommodation lies moments from all the action, making Arc 1950 the ideal destination for young families this summer. A parade of entertainment lines the streets, from ping-pong tables, slack lines, trampolines, sandpits, bouncy castles to an adventure playground and tennis courts. White water rafting, canyoning, high ropes courses, zip wires and Via Ferrata all await excited little legs in search of big adventures.
