Lovely apt in great location

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time in this apartment in st gervais. The apt is very well equipped and there is ample storage space (we were a family of 2 adults 3 children). It's clean, well maintained and there is a large balcony which catches the sun . St gervais has a lovely village , kids playground and fantastic swimming pool. We had a fabulous week skiing this year with mostly quiet empty pistes. The apt is very well located for the main lift bettex and also short stroll to village and amenities. We used ESF ski school and found them kind and accommodating with our 4 year old. The evasion ski area is vast and there is more than enough to keep skiers of all abilities happy. Would have no hesitation in coming back !

A Lovely apartment in a great position

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious, well equipped and furnished, and in a great position for skiers / snowboarders looking for somewhere in St Gervais. with the ski bus at the end of the road, walkable into town each night to ease those aching legs, and walkable to the Mont Blanc Tramway it could not have been better. We were greeted by David who had lots of useful information for us (although this was our fourth trip to St Gervais) and was extremely helpful. We were four adults and the bedding arrangements suited us perfectly. I would heartily recommend this apartment

Very well equiped, clean and tidy apartment

  • 5 of 5

I would have no problems recommending this apartment. It is very clean with all the home comforts you'd want. The kitchen is well equipped and the dish washer came in very useful. It has a great location; 5 mins walk to the town centre and 10 mins to the cable car. The owners looked after us brilliantly and went out of their way to make it an enjoyable stay. Thanks

Perfect for family needs...

  • 4 of 5

We booked Mike and Joanne's self catering apartment in St Gravies during the half term week and truth be told, it was pretty much perfect for us.

It was very comfortable and big enough to ensure that we did not feel as if we were living on top of each other. Our two kids (aged 11 & 9) loved their bedroom, oversized bunk bed and the fact that we were within walking distance of the ski cabins.

What was clear was that the apartment is a well looked after family retreat, with various games and a well stocked kitchen making it very easy for us to feel relaxed and at home straight from the off. (Similarly Mike and Joanne themselves were very helpful providing lots of useful information about the resort and the whole ski area.)

As for the skiing? Having stayed in Chamonix a number of years I would whole heartedly recommend St Gervais. It may not be the highest resort but for a family of advancing skiers there are lots of great blue and red runs with the area around Mount Joux being particularly great. Lifts are excellent and the tree lined runs ensure that you can ski in all but the worst white out conditions. The fact that you can also ski in Megeve means that it’s unlikely that you will not find a run you really like.

We’ll definitely be coming back

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

St Gervais is part of the Diamond Vert VTT circuit which has 90km of track, 11 lifts and covers Megève, Saint Nicolas de Véroce, Demi-Quartier, Combloux, La Giettaz, Flumet, Praz sur Arly, Notre-Dame de Bellecombe and Les Contamines Montjoie.

Bike hire is available in St Gervais.

The recently built Via Ferrata Curalla at Passy, about 15 minutes drive from St Gervais towards Geneva, is graded AD+ (Assez Difficile; technically easy but exposed enough to be a bit scary). Well sign-posted from the car park on Chemin de Curalla in Passy, the climb covers about 400m with nearly 200m height gain and takes 2-3 hours including the walk back from the top.


There is a wonderful non commercial leisure park in the mountains at Les Contamines with sandy beach swimming, biking, horse riding, rock climbing, tennis,abseiling (you name it!) Les Contaamines is 10 minutes drive.

Lake Passy beach with BBQ's is 10 minutes drive. Combloux has a superb ecological Mountain Lake for picnics and swimming whilst admiring Mont Blanc, also only 15 minutes drive.


We are under 1 hrs drive from Geneva airport and we can recommend private transfer services from the airport for you.

The rail links are excellent to nearby Le Fayet with a direct train from Paris.

Bus transfer form Geneva airport to St.Gervais is available.

A car, though not essential, is recommended if you wish to travel around in the summer.


St Gervais Telecabin 500m, 5 minute walk across new bridge (free Ski Bus if required)

St Gervais Village 500m, 5 minutes walk.

Tramway du Mont Blanc 500m, 5 minutes walk.

Chamonix 25 mins by car or train (lovely trip).

Courmayeur and Italy are one hour. Or you could take the cable car over the Valle Blanche which takes you across the range from the summit of the Aiguille du Midi and into Italy across a valley of eternal snow. Fantastic!

Further Details:

Located 5 minute walk from the picturesque centre village. Nestled in a narrow gorge between Chamonix and Megeve - 2 of the most fashionable ski resorts in the French Alps, Saint-Gervais les Bains is a Spa Resort, which has attracted tourists since 1806. Situated under the majestic back-drop of Mont Blanc, yet only 50 mins drive from Geneva International airport, this beautiful small alpine market town with its Baroque church and pedestrianised areas, offers amazing scenery and an excellent selection of interesting local food shops and cosy bars and restaurants. There is a good local market every Thursday and amongst its other attractions, the town of Saint-Gervais offers a theatre and an ice skating rink plus an outdoor heated swimming pool for the summer. It is the only resort in the French Alps to combine the pleasures of skiing and other mountain activities with those of health and beauty spa treatments.

Besides skiing, guests can vary their trip with other exhilarating sports and activities, from snowboarding, cross country skiing, walking and hiking, husky sledding, tobogganing and ice skating. Saint-Gervais offers a host of summer activities as well. A trip up the mountain on the Mont-Blanc tramway, one of the last rack and pinion trains in France, is not to be missed. You could paraglide around the mountains or enjoy a leisurely round of golf at Megeve. You can take the cable car and enjoy the sunny terraces of alpine restaurants, in the fresh air and with stunning views of Mont Blanc.
