A compact, neat and cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a block, but is quiet and private. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The lounge area is small, but easily seated all to watch the varied collection of dvds. The kitchen was functional, with oven, hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. the dining area seating six of us very easily. There was access to a ski room with cupboard in the basement.

At the height of the season you could, no doubt, have skied in and out of the property, though the snow was gone by the time we got there. The main ski lift could be seen from the property, and was reached easily. You could walk, but we found it more convenient to take the car. There was also a bus stop within 200 yards that would take you up the mountain to another lift.

It was a short walk (or drive) to the village, where there were numerous shops and restaurants. A large Intermarche store was a further drive away.

We skied for 6 days, near the end of the season. Although a number of pistes were closed, there was still plenty of skiing to be done, as the resort links to the Megeve resort also.

We did have a very good time.

Excellent skiing apartment

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in this apartment as part of a group of 7 friends. The apartment is lovely, the beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and having 3 bathrooms was very useful.

I would recommend hiring a car to get there as when we went there was not enough snow to ski back to the apartment.

Overall, very good value ski accommodation.

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 that has attracted tourists since 1806. Situated against the majestic back-drop of Mont Blanc, yet only 50 mins drive from Geneva International airport, this beautiful alpine market town with its baroque church and pedestrian 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 offers a theatre, an ice skating rink and a beautiful local pool. It is the only resort in the French Alps to combine the pleasures of skiing and mountain activities with those of thermal 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.
