Welcome to the Pays du Mont-Blanc!

Praz-sur-Arly in the Pays du Mont-Blanc is the ideal spot for your holidays. Nestled in the heart of the Savoyard Departments, with easy access, this authentic village offers very varied scenery. Come and discover the mountains and spectacular views of the Mont Blanc range.

Praz sur Arly is located in the Haute-Savoie at an altitude of 1036m in the heart of the Mont-Blanc region, around 1 hour from Geneva and 2 hours from Lyon by motorway, or 5 hours by TGV from Paris via Sallanches station. Chamonix and Annecy are 40 minutes and 1 hour away, respectively, by car.

A village resort

Praz sur Arly is an ideal holiday destination because of its many activities and fabulous scenery. In the summer, there’s plenty of entertainment and sporting activities (hiking, mountain biking, leisure park…).

In the winter, our family resort puts on its white mantle and offers a vast choice of activities, starting with skiing and other snow sports. It is situated at the beginning of the Espace Diamant domain which connects 6 resorts and offers 185 km of pistes!

Praz-sur-Arly has become famous for its hot air ballooning and its annual international “Montgolfiades”. It is THE main spot for hot air ballooning in the mountains. Flying noiselessly past the Mont Blanc is, one has to say, an exceptional privilege!

In the evenings, there are lots of bars and restaurants to relax in.
