An Authentic 3 Bedroom Chalet In Saint-gervais-les-bains

Overview

Property

Updated: 29-Nov-2016
Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6

An authentic 3 bedroom chalet over 3 levels which makes this property unique as it is as affordable as an apartment but you get your own stand-alone traditional chalet - ideal for a small group of friends, a romantic getaway for any couple or the perfect retreat for a family.

It is an original 'mazot' (traditional mountain chalet) which has been tastefully renovated to retain the original alpine charm with timber clad walls, exposed beams and log burner yet has all the modern day luxuries with plasma tv, sky freeview, dvd player and stereo.

It is delightfully cosy but comfortably sleeps 6 people as there are two double bedrooms and a bunk room which has the en-suite toilet and sink. As it's an authentic lodge the beams in some of the rooms are low!

There are also two large decking areas complete with outdoor furniture and bbq which overlooks the pretty town of st gervais and the mont blanc mountain range.

The chalet really is 'home from home' and you are more likely to want to stay in and enjoy the comforts of sitting by the fire at the expense of a day skiing...

About the Owner

I bought the chalet in 2007 as I grew in the French Alps and I am very passionate about the mountains, both for skiing and during the summer months. Now that I live and work in London, it is my perfect retreat from the city, and I hope you love it as much as I do! Laura

Nice place

  • 3 of 5

It is A nice and cosy house. IT has everything you need in A house. Nice terras with perfect view. Bbq works perfect. The only thing is, the house is very small (length)

My husband is 1.90m And can not stand up straight anywhere in the house. So that is A small minor

Location

From the Owner

This property is particularly special to me as I came to St Gervais as a child to ski, but also because my dream has always been to have a home, even if only part of the year, that is as authentic and rustic as the properties I used to love skiing past on the mountain side...

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 90 Kilometres Nearest Train : Le Fayet at 4 Kilometres Car: not necessary

The chalet is in the town centre of St Gervais which is conventiently located only 1 hour from Geneva Airport and budget airlines regularly fly from all UK Airports to Geneva. We recommend hiring a car for ease but there are buses which run from the airport to the town.

Alternatively you can drive from the UK, Dover to Calais / Poole to Cherbourg / Portsmouth to Le Havre and an 8/9 hour drive to St Gervais.

It is perfectly situated as it is under a 5 minute walk from the cable car and a 5-10 minute walk into town.

The Rhone/French Alps region

The Rhone area offers everything the holidaymaker could want; from a flurry of activities such as fishing, canoeing and watersports on the mighty Rhone itself, to the busy city of Lyon, France's gastronomic capital. To the east the Alps offer some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Europe and some of the world's most prestigious ski resorts, including Chamonix and Meribel, are among the 70 ski stations in the region.

St Gervais Les Bains

St Gervais is a charming 19th century spa town situated next to Megeve and 20 mins from Chamonix. It is small enough to feel in the heart of the mountains but large enough to have some good restaurants, bars, quality shops, olympic sized ice rink, national ice hockey games, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and large spa complex for both medical and health and beauty treatments.

The chalet is a 4 minute walk to the main cable car where you have access to the St Gervais ski domain and a 5-10 minute walk into the town centre over the brand new bridge (November 2012). It is a vast ski area (including a snow park with half pipe which was used in the 2002 olympics) covering 500km of pistes, 125 ski lifts from an altitude of 1000 to 2350m. The ski pass covers: St Gervais, St Nicolas de Veroce, Megeve, Combloux (which are all linked), Les Contamines and Les Houches. Les Contamines is vast ski area only 10 minute drive from St Gervais which was featured in the Storm Riders guide for Snowboarders as it is known for the off piste skiing/boarding and open slopes. Les Houches is part of the Chamonix Valley which is accessible via the tramway (TMB) which departs from St Gervais.

Winter Activities include: Ski, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, Ice Skating, ice dancing and ice hockey, paragliding, mountain railway TMB (St Gervais to Col de Voza) tobogganing, snow shoe walking (many designated hiking routes), snow park, ski entertainment area for young children.

Summer Activities include: Tennis, walking, ice skating, ice dancing and ice hockey, hang-gliding, paragliding, mountain railway (St Gervais to Col de Voza), fishing, horse riding, golf, mini golf, cycling, mountain biking on marked trails, canoeing, white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking, rock climbing, hot iar ballooning, water sports lakes with beach (Passy 10 min drive / Let Contamines 10 min drive), summer tobogganing at Megeve and Chamonix, Summer skiing on Mont Blanc.

There are Golf championship courses at Megeve (10 mins from the mazot) and Chamonix (20 mins). Mini golf is available at St Gervais.
