This very popular, family-run 3* hotel enjoys an ideal position for unrivalled ski convenience on the Mont d’Arbois, right on the piste, above the resort of St Gervais, which is about a 15 minute drive away.

The Arbois Bettex is equally suitable for families and keen skiers for whom après-ski is not a priority. The Bettex gondola is just 50m from the front door of the hotel, and within the same radius can be found the ski school meeting point, the Piou-Piou kindergarten, the ski hire shop, lift pass office and a number of restaurants. The views of Mont Blanc from the terrace are breathtaking.

What our Clients say

The hotel is ideally placed for ski in/ ski out which was great. The room we had was comfortable and spacious with excellent views and I assume that this was the reason it was classified as superior. The restaurant was superb - the evening meals were of a very high standard. The breakfast buffet too was excellent, served in the bar. The spa was also of a high standard and we appreciated this. Overall, we had a great holiday in an ideally located hotel with access to the vast ski area but feel that the hotel is maybe more suited to families

Our featured residences are located as follows:

Les Fermes de St Gervais – TURQUOISE STAR

Monte Bianco – RED STAR

We have had a fantastic time in St Gervais, in fact we extended our stay for two extra days as the hotel was in a great position, food very good and the weather ideal. Thank you for organising our stay. Bettex is an excellent resort for people looking for a quiet location, wonderful ski in ski out but would be too quiet for young people wanting some apres ski late in the evening. Next year we will have our own apartment in Les Gets which has been a dream for years, so please do not think we have fallen out with you! We will continue to recommend you to our friends.
