Hotel Les Aravis is located in the centre of St Jean de Sixt village, just 2km from the larger mountain ski resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand, in the Haute Savoie (74) department of the Northern French Alps.

It’s easy to access the ski resorts and during winter the free ‘interstations’ ski bus runs regularly throughout the day.

It’s the most convenient and hassle-free way to access the skiing and avoids all stress about where to park etc.

We are just 30 minutes from Annecy (autoroutes and TGV station), and an hour away from Geneva (international airport).

It’s very easy to get to the Annecy Mountains and we think that they are the most convenient and easiest mountain range of the French Alps to access.  For guests driving from the UK, it takes around 8 hours from Calais along fast and easy motorways.

Equally – other famous ski resorts such as Chamonix, Morzine, La Plagne and the ski resorts of the 3-Valleys (Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens) are between an hour and 2 hours drive away – so it’s a perfect base for exploring the French Alps.

In the summer – you are in the heart of the classic Tour de France road cycling country, and there are many famous mountain cols and routes close by. The area also features on the famous Route des Grands Alps between Geneva and Nice.

You can find details of the Northern Alps cycle routes and mountain cols on Bike Weekender.
