Make a holiday rental home or chalet in St Jean-de-Sixt, France your home away from home

St Jean-de-Sixt is one of the trio of villages which make up the French Alps ski resort of Aravis, the others being La Clusaz and Grand Bornard. St Jean-de-Sixt has been popular with French and Swiss visitors for many years, although is nowhere near as popular with English-speaking tourists as Geneva. This is great news for visitors though - it means prices are generally lower and makes for a more authentic experience, with many villas and chalets around the village for those looking for a self-catering break.

Everything brand new and so tasteful. The managers are excellent and answered all our questions and had the chalet beautifully prepared for our stay. I would give 10 stars if I could - we had a great holiday, thank you.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. A washing machine is available for use in the cellar. We loved the location. It was quiet and we enjoyed walking along the lakefront when we went into the old town. It is tucked under the mountain so there is a beautiful view of the woods from the small terrace. The great weather and spectacular autumn colours helped. The only problem was the WiFi which is available only near the door, and even then it was intermittent. But otherwise, no problems at all and highly recommended.
