About The Owner

Living in the UK, near Newbury, Melanie and Chris enjoy mountains summer and winter, motor racing, and car touring

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2015

Why The Owner chose Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

We have been coming to Saint Gervais summer and winter for the last 8 years (Chris for considerably longer!) and we love the town, the mountains, the scenery, the ease of access from Geneva. We love the "Frenchness" of the resort - it is not overrun with foreign nationals even in the height of the ski or summer season. Yet within 15 minutes you can be in the glamorous resorts of Chamonix or Megeve. You can be in Italy or Switzerland in less than an hour. We wanted a place of our own and the apartment is just perfect. New enough to be modern, yet old enough to be established.

What makes this apartment unique

We work hard to ensure you have the best experience during your stay with us, and will try as much as we can to accommodate your needs. You will be welcomed in person on arrival and the apartment will be fully prepared for your arrival. We have thought carefully of the things we think will make a difference to your stay, providing little extras. Per week we will provide, in way of a 'welcome pack': a bottle of wine, tea and coffee, good quality hand soap in bathroom and kitchen and shower gel, fairy liquid, dish washer tablets, bin liners, kitchen roll, loo paper x 3, and some cleaning products.

Clean, comfortable and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a lovely position with two balconies giving great views of the mountains. It was really comfortable with everything we needed, comfortable bed, small but more than adequate kitchen and everything sparkling clean! We enjoyed using the little swimming pool. It was an easy walk into the town for shopping and lots of choice for eating out, and just two minutes to a brilliant boulangerie. I also realised that there is a little (free) town bus from from the telepherique - very useful. Lovely walks close by and lots happening in the town too. A great two weeks there. Thank you Melanie and Chris.

Excellent location for family spring skiing!

  • 4 of 5

We have just spent a lovely week in Saint Gervais with our two teenage boys. The position of the apartment close to the ski lifts was perfect for spring skiing as we could fall out of our apartment and be on the first lift of the day to get the best conditions. It was also only a short walk to a boulangerie and also to town meaning we didn't need to use a car to get around.

We have previously stayed in other apartments which are not privately owned and this apartment reminded us why privately owned apartments are so much better

The property was well maintained and the local contact was very helpful. Comfortable sofas and beds, good quality bed linen and towels, British TV, private internet and well stocked for kitchen implements (even if the kitchen is tiny!). Provisions of essential items such as soap, dishwasher tablets and tea and coffee also very helpful.

The apartment is small but no smaller than other apartments we have stayed in Saint Gervais and was much better equipped.

Great for two perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Great little apartment for two. Second bedroom wasn't needed. WiFi poor after 7pm and really noisy fridge were only two negatives. Right next to ski lift so it was effortless to get up to the slopes. Big block but little disturbance from neighbours. Would recommend especially if Internet issue can be resolved.

Well appointed, comfortable if slightly "bijou" but perfectly good for two people. Great bed.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location. Very close to base cabin and only a short walk to town. Magnificent views from both sides of the apartment.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment comfortable and clean and suitable for our party of 3 adults (would accommodate 4 adults and a child) - lacking storage space in the second bedroom.

Communication with the owners and their local contact were very good and timely.

Well positioned for the ski lift and the town - all within easy walking distance. Plenty of free parking with a ski locker in the basement.

Attention to details much appreciated such as the information folder and provision of essential cleaning materials.

We found the Smart TV very useful and the apartments own internet connection was excellent.

Happy to stay here again.
