Aravis

The Aravis region is perfectly located between Mont Blanc, Lake Annecy and Switzerland. The local community has carefully worked to combine their visitor's needs, whilst maintaining the area's traditional charm and respecting its alpine heritage.

Chinaillon village in the Aravis mountains is very well preserved with the older parts dating back to 17th century. The resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz offer a great base for a French Alps summer holiday. Apart from the usual mountain activities, the Aravis mountain range offers more than 200km of marked mountain bike trails accessible with a special lift pass. The more adventurous can try paragliding or hot air ballooning above the impressive mountain range and valleys.

Only a 30 minute drive away, a visit to Annecy is a must; with its dramatic backdrop of sharp mountain peaks, the turquoise lake is one of Europe’s most romantic lakes. Annecy often referred to as ‘the Venice of the Alps’, is a pretty city with old quarters offering an array of restaurants, bars, shops and activities. The attractions of Chamonix and Lake Geneva are only a one hour drive away.
