OVERVIEW

The Chalets

 

Location

One of the many things that make holidays in the Chalets La Fontaine du Roi stand out is the chalets’ excellent location in the very heart of the hamlet, La Chal, which itself can be found in the village of Saint Jean d’Arves. This village is a quaint destination in the Aiguilles d’Arves valley of the French Alps, and as a result, this south facing property has magnificent views of the Arves Peaks.
The 3-star Chalets La Fontaine du Roi are conveniently close to the local amenities, less than 100 metres from the nearest shops, and 200 metres from the ski lifts. The ski slopes themselves are just 500 metres away and can be reached by the free shuttle bus service which circles the entire resort.

 

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

Nestled snugly in the heart of the Maurienne Valley opposite the Aiguilles d’Arves, Saint Jean d’Arves is one of the most beautiful villages in the French Alps. The resort is made up of twenty tiny hamlets, including La Chal, all of which add their own authentic charm to the resort. As a destination for skiing holidays, this traditional town is an excellent choice thanks to its unbeatable panoramic views of the icy mountain peaks. The Chalets la Fontaine du Roi can be found in the hamlet of La Chal, within close walking distance of the slopes and near to the small selection of bars, restaurants and shops which can be found in the town.

 

The Sybelles Ski Area

Despite being a small, peaceful village, Saint Jean d’Arves provides guests with access to the largest ski area in the Maurienne Valley, ideal for beginner and advanced skiers alike. Located at an altitude of 1550m to 2207m, there are 43 runs to be found in Saint Jean d’Arves itself, with easy access to the huge ski area The Sybelles as well. With highly varied terrain, it’s a great choice for first-time skiers on family holidays, as well as seasoned experts. The altitude ranges from 1600m to 2265m and there are more than 310km of slopes to enjoy, which includes 33 km of cross country slopes. Of the 124 ski slopes in the area, 25 are green, 56 are blue, 34 red and nine are black. There is easy access guaranteed from all of the resorts within the area, with 41 fast-paced, group ski lifts running throughout the day. 441 snow-guns service the area, ensuring that the pristine snow is in top quality condition throughout the season.

 

Other activities

There is a whole host of activities for holidaymakers to enjoy besides skiing in Saint Jean d’Arves during winter. Snowshoeing is especially popular and guided tours led by professionals take place in the village throughout the ski season. This is an adventurous way to explore the snow-covered slopes and forests of the Maurienne Valley and take in the stunning panoramic views. Sledging and dog-sled rides led by packs of huskies are two more exciting activities, both of which can be adjusted to suit either children or adults.
