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.

Ski Area

Saint Jean d'Arves offers its guests access to over 310 km of pistes and up to 126 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 126 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.



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.
