The Grand Massif region in the Haute Savoie is the lesser known and the least developed. The villages have maintained the old charm of the Savoyard alpine way of life, where the chalets are adorned with colourful window boxes and church bells echo across the valleys. It always amazes me how quickly the mountains burst with wild flowers so soon after the snow has melted. It is a paradise for the wild flower enthusiast, artist and walker. The air is very clear and the afternoon sun can be very strong high in the mountains with a temperature drop by early evening. However, our balcony in Les Carroz is sheltered by the mountains and is normally warm enough for all meals to be eaten outside.
The old town square forms the centre of Les Carroz d'Araches which is lined with pavement cafe bars, small shops and restaurants. Nothing is too far away and a car is not essential as most items can be purchased locally. There are several ski / mountainerring hire shops as well as VTT cycle centres.The centre "Montagne Activites" - Hte Montagne, Escalade, Canyoning, Via Ferrata is located in the square. We have a cinema and three churches of which two are twelfth-century.
Lying at 1140-2500m the town offers one of the longest winter ski seasons in the Alpes. Les Carroz d'Araches Flaine, Sameons, Sixt and Morillon telecabine system allows extensive coverage of the Grand Massif region (265km) for the VTT cyclist, walker or skier.
