Comfortable and good location apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Maja perenaine Marie-Helene oli väga abivalmis ja tähelepanelik. Ta tuli meile isegi bussipeale vastu autoga, et viia meid korterisse. Korter oli parajalt suur neljale inimesele. Olemas oli kõik vajalik. Pliit, mikrolaineahi, kohviaparaat, veekeetja, föön, väga hea wifi. Väga hea asukohaga korter, küla keskel. Ilus vanaaegse miljööga maja ning korter. Maja ees oli bussipeatus, kus väljus iga 10 min järel suusabuss, mis ei olnud kunagi ülerahvastatud. Väga mõnus ja vaikne koht. Kindlasti tasub minna ja avastada selle väikese küla võlusi ja prantslaste külalislahkust.

Lovely historic property in central location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property. The central location is perfect and, unlike many properties, this one is exceptionally well equipped for anyone wishing to self cater. It has every pot, pan and implement you could wish for. The central location makes shopping easy and is perfect for popping out for an aperitif. The two minute morning walk for bread and croissants is perfect. The property also enjoys easy parking nearby and is just a few minutes from the main ski lift.

Although living at a distance, the owner is very caring about her guests and we enjoyed excellent communications before and after our stay.

We are happy to recommend the property.

The property was everything that was promised. Great location, really special to be in a castle.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and very different which made it special - you really felt you were staying in a castle. It was surprisingly warm and draft free given that it is an old building. The location is excellent, really close to the town centre and the bus stop for the ski lift. It was very well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and the owner is very attentive, available and approachable via email. We would love to visit again, Summer or Winter.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, we were very happy to welcome you in our house. We hope to see you again. St Gervais is also very nice in summer and very different. The best is to discover the mountain by walking, and a lot of paths leave from St Gervais. It's a wonder every time and one never tires of it. Beautiful views, special flowers, animals...

Vacances au dongeon ;)

  • 5 of 5

Charmant petit appartement de caractère presque entièrement rénové dans une très ancienne maison forte à deux minutes du centre historique de Saint-Gervais, mille fois plus sympathique et mieux placé qu'un clapier de rapport en banlieue. Près de tout, y compris la navette gratuite pour les pistes, et probablement particulièrement frais et agréable en été.

Owner's Response: Merci, vous avez vu juste, nous avons une "clim naturelle" l'été. Il reste une grande chambre et sa salle de bain à restaurer pour en faire un appartement de 80m2 à proposer pour un maximum de 5 personnes, notre souci majeur étant le bien être de nos visiteurs. Une fois les frais de fonctionnement déduits, les revenus des locations sont entièrement réinvestis dans les travaux d'entretien et de restauration du bâtiment. Nous vous sommes très reconnaissants d'avoir ainsi participé à la conservation de cette maison historique. C'est avec grand plaisir que nous vous accueillerons à nouveau si vous le désirez, en été peut-être, pour découvrir l'autre visage de notre belle montagne ?
