About Elaine Hutchinson

My name is Elaine Hutchinson. I live in Chamonix Mont Blanc with my husband and young son. My passion is running and skiing. I look after my family's and best friends's property whilst living here.

Why Elaine Hutchinson chose St. Gervais - Megeve area

Both my middles sister's family and my family purchased this property brand new in 2004 as a family second home and an investment and I look after it for her. We hope you can enjoy it as much as we do! My best friend also owns one in the same block should you wish to expand your group!

What makes this apartment unique

Location is fabulous, local amenities and restaurants on tap, skiing on tap and the views!!!

Set right at the foot of Mont Blanc, the French ski resort of St Gervais Les Bains has access to over 490 pistes and 300km of skiing. Linked to Megeve and St Nicholas de Veroce, together they make up the largest inter-connected ski area within the Mont Blanc region and with much of the skiing above 2000m, it is reliably snow sure. All levels of skiing are catered for here, but particular favourites of ours are the sunny blue and red runs across to Megeve for some superb quality mountain restaurants; and Les Contamines, one of the areas biggest secrets for a good powder day. It's only a 10 minute drive from St Gervais and is included on the same ski pass. From the summit of Mont Joly you get an amazing panoramic view of the Mont Blanc region and on a clear day can even see the summit of the Grand Mottes glacier in Tignes! Local buses also take you between the different areas if you do not wish to ski. St Gervais itself is a beautiful little spa town with a well renovated centre that has retained the charm of its 19th century origins The bustling centre is full of ambience and has a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as a multitude of sporting and leisure facilities. There is a farmers market every Thursday where you can buy your local ham and cheeses and the St Gervais thermal baths in Le Fayet are also well worth a visit. Access to St Gervais is so easy. Geneva airport is less than 50 minutes drive away or St Gervais/ Le Fayet train station - linked to Paris - is only a 10 minute drive. It is a charming town with loads of ambience and takes you away from the purpose built ski resort. St Gervais is ideal for all types of skier but particularly for families or groups.

The attractive spa town of St Gervais has been a holiday resort since tourists first took waters there in 1806. Lying above a dramatic river gorge midway between the 2 world famous ski resorts of Chamonix and Megeve, it is part of the massive Evasion Mont Blanc ski area. The perfectly groomed slopes and challenging off-piste terrain, with 125 ski lifts, 312 miles of downhill slopes and 5,400 feet of vertical drop, offer skiing and snowboarding for all abilities. Non-skiers can enjoy several miles of high mountain footpaths, spectacular views of Mont Blanc and many of the on-slope restaurants with a pedestrian lift pass. Megeve, France's most elegant and upscale resort, is just a cable car ride away from Le Bettex. Everyone will want to take a ride on the Tramway du Mont Blanc, one of only three remaining rack and pinion railways in France. A scenic ride takes pedestrians and skiers through forests and snow-covered pastures to the Bellevue/ Les Houches plateau at the foot of Mont Blanc. St Gervais has a lovely renovated town center with a good selection of bars, restaurants, bakeries and creperies (not to mention the chocolate!) and several supermarkets to use for everyday essentials. Just above St Gervais, at the first stop of the cable car is the small hamlet of Le Bettex, the birthplace of skiing in the region. Here you will find a charming restaurant, a ski school and several shops. Facing Mont Blanc, St Nicolas de Veroce is a typical mountain village. After an invigorating day on the slopes, the best way to relax is with a visit to the hot springs at Le Fayet. Les Thermes de St Gervais, situated in a magnificent park setting. It has been open for over 200 years and is prepared to treat you to the most advanced techniques in spa treatments. The local market comes to town on a Thursday with a range of Savoyard treats. Various festivals and concerts are held in the town throughout the year and it has an excellent theatre and cinema. Free resort shuttle buses operate throughout the area.

St Gervais is less than one hour from Geneva airport - there is a direct road into the town from the airport which remains open throughout the year making accessibility so simple. Geneva is the closest airport to St Gervais (80km) around 1 hour drive, however Grenoble, Lyon, Milan or Turin are all less than 2.5 hours drive away. Then you can book an airport transfer (we can book for you) or car hire. The railway station (SNCF) in St Gervais/ Le Fayet (about an 8 minute taxi drive away from St Gervais Centre) and links directly with the TGV (high speed French rail network). There is direct access to St Gervais via the Autoroute Blanche motorway, part of the European motorway network. The buses and trains to the ski lift areas are free on production of a lift pass or guest card. During the high season the service is very frequent, every 10-12min. There are free car parks at each of the major ski stations.
