The Rhône-Alpes region

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains is a small 19th Century spa town that lies at the heart of the Evasion Mont- Blanc ski area in the French Alps, Haute-Savoie region. The hydrotherapeutic properties of the water here class Saint-Gervais as the only alpine spa resort in the Alps, one of 10 other spa towns in France, which makes it pretty special!

The resort also boasts the ownership of the highest mountain in Europe, the Mont-Blanc. The famous "Voie Royale" departs from Saint-Gervais and is renowned to be the most direct access to the summit.

Saint-Gervais offers direct access to the Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area, offering 360 kilometres of slopes, and over 100 lifts, towards Megève, Combloux, Les Contamines Hauteluce and La Gietaz. The pistes themselves vary from pretty tree-lined runs amongst the evergreen forests to large open areas, catering for skiers of all standards, beginners, intermediates and the really advanced. There are snowmaking machines on many runs during the winter for guaranteed skiing. Some areas are specifically allocated for snowboarding and there are large areas for safe off-piste skiing.

Les Contamines-Montjoie is a short drive (4 km), and is also excellent for cross country skiing and Chamonix is just 30 km - both are fantastic in both winter and in summer, for climbing and walking

It also has 55kms of slopes on the opposite side of town in Le Prarion and Les Houches, accessible by the Mont-Blanc Tramway, one of the oldest rack and pinion railways in the country, which stops just outside the apartment.

It is 70kms from Geneva, 24kms from Chamonix, 11kms from Megève, 10kms from Sallanches and 4kms from Le Fayet. SNCF trains operate to Le Fayet station. TGV runs direct from Paris to Le Fayet at weekends during high season.

The Apartment is located next to the Tramway Mont Blanc (TMB) station, 5 mins walk from St Gervais town centre, which has many lovely restaurants cafes and shops.

"Nice apartment - Great Location"

Spent Christmas week ( 4 teenage children) in this apartment. Apartment nice and well presented. Ample room for a family of 6 with 2 good sized bedrooms and an extra set of bunk beds. Kitchen well equipped with utensils. There was a TV in living area although we did bring our own game console.
Down side - apartment block has no lift and so need to be fit to tackle the 56 steps at the end of a day on the slopes!
Location is really great just a few minutes walk from the town centre where there are lots of nice little bars and restaurants. Free shuttle bus also stops just outside.
