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.

Wonderful stay in really pretty property

5 of 5
The location was perfect - we drove up into the mountains one day and then spent another couple of days in and around Annecy. The property is very well equipped, clean and well maintained. It is on the outskirts of the village of St Jean de Sixt which has various shops and a great bakery. The children (16,15 and 12) loved Annecy and went swimming in the lake and hired a pedalo. We would definitely recommend this property.

Lovely chalet and immaculate inside.

5 of 5
What a gem! We went out of season in May so the site amenities were not up and running. However, This didnt matter as we were within walking distance of the village. The property was lovely with a great decked area where we spent most evenings looking out at the beautiful views. Inside the chalet was immaculate and appeared recently refurbished to a high standard. The rooms were all a good size and there was plenty of storage. The beds were all very comfortable. It felt like a real home from home. Free WiFi too which was a real bonus for our teenage son! Would definately book to come back. Might like to try in the winter months next to see the contrast in scenery. Thank you so much for a holiday to remember.
