Le Cernix is a pretty village located in Val D'Arly. Le Cernix has all you need to enjoy your trip located right there but is a short drive from Crest Voland which offers more dining options (cafes and restaurants) together with a small supermarket/deli ("Sherpa"). There is also a larger tourist office, post office and ATM located there. A large hypermarket is located at Praz -sur -Arly, a 15 minute drive from Le Cernix

It is at the heart of The Espace Diamant ski area, situated at the foot of Mont Blanc. The area has 185 km of alpine slopes and comprises the five villages of Les Saisies, Crest-Voland, Notre Dame de Bellecombe, Flumet and Praz sur Arly.

The resort gained its first lift in 1951 and has grown steadily ever since, the creation of the link to Les Saises in 1985 formed the original 'Espace Crystal' ski region. The "Espace Cristal" now links to Les Saisies and Crest-Voland - Cohennoz, to form "Espace Diamant". From December 2005 this area has also been linked to Notre-Dame de Bellecombe, Flumet and Praz sur Arly.

It is ideal for families and couples, the slopes suit beginners and intermediate level skiers. There are also black runs for the more advanced skiers but is mainly made up of blue and red runs.

The slopes are unspolit and uncrowded and the Apres ski is fairly low key. There are 12 Bars, 9 Restaurants and one night club in Crest Voland. In Le Cernix (a few minutes from Crest Voland) there are several restaurants, a few bars, deli and Le Pub.

The area has also a large Nordic network of cross country trails which run through the heavily wooded countryside surrounding the village.

There is plenty to enjoy in the summer too. Lying on the “Route des Grandes Alpes”, Val d’Arly is the perfect base for excursions into the surrounding countryside, whether by car, on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback. Other activities in the area include golf, white water sports and fishing.

The heated swimming pool is also open in Winter and Summer seasons and has a large sundeck outside with lovely views of the mountains.

There is secure underground parking for guests. Even though you are within walking distance to the ski lifts and the village of Le Cernix we would recommend having a car for your stay to enable easy access to the larger town of Crest Voland, however there is a public bus service connecting all the towns in the area and a free shuttle during peak ski season.
