Les Carroz d'Araches

Perched on a plateau at 1140m, Les Carroz d'Arâches is a traditional alpine village in the heart of the Grand Massif area, just one hour from Geneva and Chamonix.

It is one of the most accessible resorts in the Alps. It is a spacious, sunny, traditional family resort with pavement cafés and interesting little shops which are centered on the main square. The village has managed to preserve its traditional charm in harmony with the beauty of the surrounding mountains. 

Les Carroz d’Araches has a pleasant ‘lived-in’ feel and animated atmosphere. Les Carroz ski resort has been popular with French families since 1936 when it officially became a ski resort.

It holds the ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ label for its superb children facilities. Non skiers have plenty to do - try an Air balloon flight, a night time luge, dog sledding, ice skating (some evenings until 10pm), snowshoe outings…

In 2014 a new leisure centre was opened with its large heated outdoor pool with an unspoilt view of the Timalets piste and the snow-capped peaks, as well as an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and the impressive cardio-fitness room. There is also late night swimming on some evenings.
