Praz-sur-Arly is a French commune located in the department of Haute-Savoie, in the Rhône-Alpes region. The village of Praz-sur-Arly is located 1,035 meters above sea level in the Val d'Arly, Megeve and between Flumet. It is bordered by the river and Arly, passing into the stream of Cassioz Varins. In Savoy, "praz" means "meadow". Arly ar (running water) and -ly (height) in celte. Thus the name of Praz-sur-Arly indicates that the village was built on an old meadow near the river Arly. The name "Arly" could come from the Gallic word 'are' (near) and "late" (the swamp). In Megève, there was once a swamp called "arly" and was considered to be the source of Arly.
In the fourteenth century, some farmers set up and build the first farms Thona (the Tonnaz today). It is therefore the first inhabitants of what much later became the Pratz Megève and Praz-sur-Arly. These first farms were built quite logically on the sunniest side of the valley: the sunny side. They are few, but the importance of the deforested area reflects the desire for expansion. In the seventeenth century, two chapels were erected: the Tonnaz, then of Pratz (1643), and finally the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in 1696 will depend on the parish of Megeve. The Pratz continues to grow and expand. In 1779, an official paper reported a hundred people who lived largely on culture and livestock. That same year, a school was built and will accommodate children of the country.
