OVERVIEW

The Residence

 

Location


The 3-star Résidence la Fontaine du Roi welcomes guests to its cosy and comfortable interiors with beautiful surroundings. Ideally located in the centre of the village of Saint Jean d’Arves, in the quaint hamlet of Le Chal, the apartments have magnificent views of Les Aiguilles d’Arves.

Ski France invites you to experience this fantastic location for skiing, only 300 metres walk from the ski lifts and the foot of the pistes. The apartments at Résidence la Fontaine du Roi are also perfectly located with the ski school and ski hire shop on your doorstep, as well as supermarkets, a boulangerie and a small selection of bars and restaurants.

 

The Apartments


Nestled in the Maurienne Valley, guests staying at the Résidence la Fontaine du Roi will find themselves swept off their feet with a taste of luxury whilst being surrounded by the natural beauty and stunning landscapes of the French Alps. Guests can expect to enjoy unobstructed views of the magnificent Aiguilles d’Arves from their very own private balcony or terrace.

The apartments offer plenty of space, with a fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances including a microwave oven, kettle, toaster, washing machine, dishwasher and a coffee maker. The apartments also boast balconies or terraces, with views over the resort and its stunning alpine landscapes.

Relax and unwind in the indoor pool found on site, or chill out and look back on the day’s adventures in the sauna. At the end of an exhilarating day spent exploring and skiing, guests can head to the living room area where there is a large fireplace and free Wi-Fi available, as well as comfortable seating and warm, inviting decor.

The Resort

 

Saint Jean d'Arves


Snuggled in the Maurienne Valley in the heart of the French Alps, with easy access to the Sybelles and Saint Jean d’Arves ski areas, the Residence la Fontaine du Roi is located in the small hamlet of La Chal, which is just minutes from the centre of Saint Jean d’Arves. This small, authentic village is pretty and atmospheric, offering the ideal place to escape to whilst enjoying easy access to the fantastic ski slopes of the area. There are twenty hamlets to explore, set amidst beautiful landscapes which are also home to traditional farms.

For a complete guide to visiting Saint Jean d’Arves during the ski season, visit our winter destination page.

 

Ski Area


Saint Jean d’Arves offers its guests access to over 310 km of pistes and up to 124 slopes in the Sybelles area, in addition to a snow park and boardercross. Sybelles is a superb choice whether you’re looking for a family-friendly place where everyone can learn to ski, or you are visiting with a group of expert skiers. Found in the beautiful Maurienne region, the huge ski area of Sybelles is one of France’s largest ski areas and offering an impressive range of pistes, yet it remains relatively unknown. The area has an altitude range of 1600 metres – 2265 metres, and boasts one of the best snow records in the French Alps, meaning there is good coverage throughout much of the season. There are 124 pistes over 310 km to be explored, with almost all delivering magnificent views of Aiguilles d’Arves. The diversity offered by the Sybelles ski area attracts a wide variety of skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, from beginner to advanced levels.

 

Activities


Although Saint Jean d’Arves offers some fantastic opportunities for skiing and snowboarding, there are plenty of things to do away from the slopes as well. There is a cinema in the resort itself, ideal for rainy days and a break from skiing. There is a market which runs every Wednesday afternoon and offers visitors to chance to buy regional crafts and local products, as well as an organic market on Wednesday mornings in nearby St Jean de Maurienne.
