About Nicolas De Decker
Company manager. I distribute fixing products (nails, dowels, anchors) made in Holland (HJZ) and Finland (SORMAT) to a clientele of wholesalers and fasteners specialists in Western Europe.
Nicolas De Decker purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Nicolas De Decker chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice
I discovered the ARCS in 1985 and after visiting most of the major French and Austrian resorts, I returned to Les Arcs 1800 in the village Charvet to realize that it was the most pleasant resort (reception and social life) and the most practical (departure and return skis - access by TGV and funicular - free shuttles). So I chose to invest in the MIRAVIDI building. A family residence and calm although very close to the center of the village. I bought 2 apartments side by side to make a 'big' apartment in 2008 and in 2014, an apartment just above to be able to create a space in duplex worthy to receive 2 or 3 families in the greatest comfort.
What makes this Apartment unique
The most important for me is the altitude of the station. It is essential that snow cover be at the rendezvous and this is generally the case at ARCS. I always come early in the season to heat the apartment and check that everything is functional. I come back again at the end of the season (Easter) to do the inventory. I was never disappointed by the snow in December. In April, the spring snow is less pleasant but the sun and the beautiful days always make the stay pleasant. In July, we come back to do the big cleaning and bring the small repairs and modifications indicated by our tenants. Our children are very fond of the club and participate in the proposed activities (tree climbing, archery, circus school, trampoline, ...) Now that they are older, they can participate in 'extreme' activities (mountain biking, rafting , Canyonning, Via Ferrata, ... and Thursday's bivouac). My wife and I enjoy the relaxation sessions, swimming pool, golf, tennis and hiking.

Excellent apartment in heart of 1800
The apartment was excellent and exactly as advertised. There was plenty of living space and a fully-equipped kitchen. It is well-located in the heart of Arc 1800 and within touching distance of shops, bars, restaurants etc. If you arrive early as we did, there is a very good bagagerie service in the nearby bus station which you can use at a small fee.
All in all, highly recommended!
Lovely comfortable apartment very well equipped and well thought out and conveniently located
Very nice property and comfortably accommodated our group of 8. Extremely convenient for shops and just a short distance from lifts- across one road, up one flight of steps then down one short gentle slope.
Clean and comfortable with lots of well thought out storage space so that it never felt cluttered. Also a handy storage area for skis and boots within the apartment ( the block doesn’t have a boot room).
Would be very happy to stay here again.
Thank you Sarah for your comments. We do our best and look forward to see you again in LES ARCS.
Great apartment, great location
Great location to stay, easy access for skiing. Very well equipped and well looked after apartment, plenty of space for our 2 families, thanks.
A great apartment, 2 mins from the slopes in the middle of Charvet.
A great trip to Les Arc 1800, the first time for us as a family on the Eurostar from London rather driving across from England. The TGV travels all the way to Bourg St Maurice, then funicular and free bus and you’re here - really chilled way if travelling👍�
The apartment worked really well for 2 families - 4 adults and 5 kids across 4 rooms and a central area for food and relaxing with a cup of tea, and has everything you will ever need on a trip. The owner has made this a really nice apartment both with the layout and location, it’s more like a home from home than a holiday apartment - it’s easy to cook at home, we used the raclette a couple of times and the kids loved it, Nicolas ( the host ) was happy to guide us through any queries pre trip and Sabrina is in Les Arc full time in you need her.
The apartment is in Charvet and the slopes are a 2 minute walk away & you can then ski down the last 100 metres to the ESF ski school without having to walk👍�.
There is plenty in Charvet, supermarket, bars, restaurants etc and the Boulangerie opens early fur the kids to get bread etc
All in all in worked really well with the apartment, help from Nicolas and the location ticking all of the boxes,a really good experienice, a big thankyou, Jeremy G
Thank you very much Jeremy for your comments. I am really proud you appreciated our service based on the experience of our guests. I hope to see you next year in Les Arcs.
Nice apartment, close to the slopes, shops, restaurants and bars.
The apartment was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were a party of seven, 4 adults and 3 teenagers, while the apartment can sleep more I would not recommend many more as it would be too small. It is very close to the slopes and all amenities.
We had great service and communication with Nicolas the owner and Sabrina, his contact in the resort, was extremely helpful. There was slight confusion over what we needed to bring and what was included in the apartment, I think this was a translation issue in the agreement so it may be worth checking this before you go if you are not sure of anything.
All amenities are close by and there is a laundrette in the apartment building which is useful. The wifi was good in the apartment and 4 rooms had TVs, but unfortunately there were no English channels. This didn't really matter but it would have been nice to have one or two.
I would definitely recommend this apartment, we really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you very much for your detailed comments. Its correct that towels and bed lining are not included in the rental. These can be rented locally close to the apartment. Sorry to read that there is no english television available in France. Fortunately enough english pubs...
See you next time with pleasure.
