St Sorlin d'Arves

Saint Sorlin d’Arves sits on a high, sunny plateau above the Maurienne Valley surrounded by majestic peaks such as the 3500-m Aiguilles d'Arves and L'Etendard.

This is a quaint mountain village of carefully preserved Savoyard farmhouses and long-established shops built around an early 17th century Baroque church. 

Saint Sorlin is a proud community that has successfully managed to preserve its ambience and traditions down the years – on feast days the villagers dress up in their colourful traditional costume. You can visit the farmhouse cheese factory to watch Beaufort being made, and the village museum provides a fascinating insight into an Alpine community where the pace of life has always been dictated by the seasons.

At the same time Saint Sorlin caters for the exacting demands of a 21st century ski holiday with a choice of restaurants, bars, a ‘traiteur’ selling delicious regional specialities, and even a hairdressing salon (untried!).
