Maurienne – Savoie – Alps


Massif Arvan-Villards

Summer home " The station " Massif Arvan-Villards

A huge playing area

The massif de L'arvan, located on the Department of Savoy, border of Isère and Hautes-Alpes, owes its name to the river arvan, which deepens it at the level of albiez to throw itself in the lower arc in the Valley ( Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne).

The iconic Aiguilles D'ARVES culminating at 3514m are the main peaks. Other important massifs border the Valley: Les Grandes Rousses with the peak of the standard (3464 m) and the glacier of Saint-Sorlin in the Southwest, the Belledonne massif in the Northwest. Pointed needles, rounded tops, COMBES and valleys, rocks, forests, lakes in rosaries... are all varied landscapes that welcome a very rich fauna and flora. The Valley of the Villards stretches over 15km between the Glandon pass and the arc Valley. Mid-slope of the Col, overlooked by the snowy peaks of the Sambuis, the Puy-Gris and the Argentières, Saint-colomban and Saint-Alban-des-Villards form the first gate of access to the Sybelles.
