ST JEAN D'ARVES, FRANCE

Ski Holidays in St Jean d'Arves, France

Located high in the Maurienne Valley, St Jean d’Arves is a quaint, traditional village which is part of the superb Les Sybelles ski area which offers 300kms of uncrowded pistes and an excellent snow record. St Jean d’Arves has a fantastic setting, amidst unspoilt, natural scenery. It shares the valley of L'Arvan with its larger sister resort of St Sorlin d’Arves. A five minute ski bus journey links up the two villages.

St Jean d’Arves is a delightful and great value resort. It’s the quieter of the villages in Les Sybelles and an ideal choice for families, as well as beginners and intermediates. The skiing kindergarten caters for children from 3 years old with a special ski area. Novice skiers can enjoy the fact that the majority of the slopes are for beginners.

Try the guided tours and cheese tasting in the local fromagerie. The nightlife at the resort is low key, with a good selection of excellent value for money bars and restaurants. L'Oule Rouge restaurant is popular for traditional cuisine and Le Skwal for seafood specialities. La Grenouillère has a good, lively après ski atmosphere.
