The atmospheric village St. Jean d'Arves is situated in the extensive ski region of Les Sybelles. This family friendly village forms a good alternative for those who prefer a quiet, authentic French destination over a modern ski village like Le Corbier. From the village there is an amazing view over de three mountaintops of the Aguilles d'Arves.
St. Jean d'Arves has an old centre and a bit of newly constructed accommodations near the lifts and the piste. These lifts and pistes are situated just outside the village, on a walking distance, from where you can reach about 300 km of varied slopes of the Les Sybelles ski region. At the foot of the slopes the ski school is located and a restaurant. There are also two drag lifts leading the beginners to the practice slope.
In the village you will find several restaurants and bars, two supermarkets, some shops and day care. You can reach St. jean d'Arves by car over a rough mountain road. Snow chains are therefore recommended.
