Les Carroz d'Araches
Perched on a plateau at 1140m overlooking the Cluse de l'Arve, Les Carroz d'Arâches is a traditional alpine village in the heart of the Grand Massif area.
Close to the village there is a clear view of the mountains of La Croix de Fer and Les Grandes Platières, with the narrow valley below.
Les Carroz is a spacious, sunny, family resort with pavement cafés and interesting little shops centred around a main square. Les Carroz has a pleasant 'lived-in' feel and has been popular with French families since the mid 1930s for its superb children facilities, including a children’s club, and a baby-club. In Les Carroz there is a swimming pool complex with 3 pools, paddling pool, water slides, bouncy castle, volley ball, trampoline, restaurant and bar, surrounded by a large expanse of green lawn. The 18 hole Golf course boasts fantastic views, open every day in July and August, and at weekends in other months. Other golfing challenges in the area include an 18 hole course at Les Gets, a 9 hole course at Avoriaz, and a practice range at Samoëns with a driving range over water and a putting green.
Les Carroz is well provided for with shops, post office, library, medical centre, pharmacy, tennis courts, archery, mini-golf cinema, art galleries, museums, and ping-pong! The gondola in Les Carroz is also available to take you up to the fabulous scenery, leaving you to descend at your leisure. The Tourist Information Office in Les Carroz keeps a wealth of informative literature and will help keep visitors entertained during their stay. Les Carroz is one of the most accessible resorts in the Alps with very easy access from the motorway, train station or Geneva airport.
