The Chalets



An ideal choice for summer excursions with the family or with friends, the apartments of Chalets La Fontaine du Roi are just 100 metres from the local shops and amenities. Some of the best hiking and cycling paths of the area are situated just a few minutes’ walk away from the property, and provide the ideal way for guests to enjoy the fresh mountain air and clear blue skies and to soak up the warm sunshine of the mountains during their stay. Summer stays in these chalets guarantee incredible views of the rocky, green mountains of the Aiguilles d’Arves.


The Chalets

The 11 small, rustic wooden cottages fit in perfectly with the traditional surroundings of the hamlet of La Chal. Each of these chalets contain between two and four spacious, cosy apartments that have all been warmly decorated with typical Alpine décor and benefit from the bright sunshine all year round in the Aiguilles d’Arves.
There are ski-in ski-out facilities to make the property easily accessible for skiing guests and a selection of first class amenities on offer as well. An indoor heated swimming pool plus two saunas are perfect for guests looking to warm up and wind down after an active day on the ski slopes. Leisurely activities like ping-pong, bowling and badminton are also available and some of the larger chalets come with wooden stoves where guests can enjoy creating their own meals.


Board options

All of the apartments in the Chalets la Fontaine du Roi come with well-equipped kitchens which allow guests to enjoy a fully self-catered holiday. The local shops and amenities are located less than 100 metres away, so it is easy to stock up on groceries and cook delicious meals, while in La Chal there are three popular restaurants, all of which serve authentic French cuisine and are also just 100 metres from the chalets.

The Resort


Saint Jean d'Arves

Nature lovers flock to Saint Jean d’Arves during the summer, when the snow has melted and the landscape comes to life with a colourful array of flora and fauna. This charming mountain village is warm and filled with sunshine throughout the summer season and there is an almost endless choice of outdoor activities to choose from.


Summer In Saint Jean D'Arves

There is a fun and friendly tennis Club in the village, which is accommodating to all guests. There’s a tennis school where you can receive lessons either alone or in groups of up to four. Walking is the simplest and best way to get to know Saint Jean d’Arves during the summer, and excursions are led by Mountain Leaders every day, welcoming children from the age of four. Mountain biking is another thrilling way to discover the rural landscape, with plenty of trails to be explored through the area, and donkey rides are ideal for kids or those who want a rest from all the high energy activities.
Things to see
Holidays to Saint Jean d’Arves during the summer are filled with incredible sightseeing and cultural opportunities. The honey making factory will keep kids and adults entertained with lessons about how candles, honey and jelly are all produced using bee products. History-loving holidaymakers will be keen to visit historic sites such as the Baroque church of St Saturnin, which was built in 1603, the 18th century chapel of Saint Brigide, and the Museum of Past Life. Anyone travelling with kids who love animals should visit the donkey farm, the Les Chambons petting zoo and the local La Chal farm.
