The Rhone/French Alps region
Chamonix just 30 minutes away is the 'mecca' for mountain climbing & extreme skiing. You can take the highest cable car in Europe to the Aiguille du Midi or the Train de Montevers which climbs up to the edge of the Vallée Blanche Glacier where you can view skiers & ice climbers on the Glacier. Chamonix also has an interesting Alpine Museum.
In just one hour you can visit beautiful Lake Annecy known as the 'Little Venice' for a memorable boat tour around the lake stopping off at quaint little villages along the way.
Geneva is a beautiful city with fine shops, lakeside restaurants, theatres & museums.
This is "Hiedi" country. There are hundreds of walking trails with beautiful wild mountain flowers. Don't forget your binoculars to spot chamois & ibex. For the budding ornothologist there are golden eagles, vultures & many more.
St Gervais Les Bains
Saint-Gervais-les-Bains is a delightful Alpine Village nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc with numerous bars & local restaurants.
The nearby lakes are perfect for bathing & relaxing during the warm & balmy Summers with allocated BBQ areas, a sandy beach & beach bars.
Saint-Gervais hosts regular craft fayres, open air antique markets, a vintage car rally & international ice skating competitions.
Poeple come from afar to watch the wonderful firework display on the 14th July with the openair 'Bal' or dance with Alpine music.
There is a lively colourful market on Thursdays where one can sample local produce & purchase gifts to take home.
From the cenre of Saint-Gervais take the Tramway de Mont Blanc train that winds it way up through meadows & wild flowers high above the hustle & bustle to the edge of the Glacier. You can take a short walk to the newNid d'Aigle Refuge (Eagles Nest) for lunch & refreshments.
Return to the chalet to have drinks, BBQ & 'al fresco' dining on your private terrace where you can watch Mont Blanc turning pink & then red before the sun sets; the sign that tomorrow will be another beautiful day.
Summer in the mountains has everything to offer except the sea!
Enjoy a relaxing spa treatment at the Thermal baths where the waters are famous for their healing properties.
Take the complimentary shuttle bus from outside the chalet & be skiing in 5 minutes. Enjoy a wonderful day in the mountains with over 445Kms of ski slopes , 107 ski lifts, numerous charming little bars & restaurants, snow park & nearby Ski School. For the non skier one can purchase the 'walkers' pass which gives you access via certain lifts to the mountain range. There are many walking & snow shoe trails all offering wonderful breath taking scenery. There are some spectacular cross country ski tracks which are free of charge. Driving on a snow scooter to a high altitude restaurant for dinner & then tobogganing home could be the highlight of your week!

"Unforgettable stay with magnificent views, exceeded our expectations"
We are couple travelled with the dog, stayed in Shelley's and Andy's property. They are amazing people. Shelley is amiable and very thoughtful, she paid attention to every detail we find everything we needed during our stay. Andy is - soul, he supported and helped to make our stay more adventures.
We felt like at home, very comfortable and welcomed. We were blown away by the views of Mont Blanc literately from the bed. Property has it all as per descriptions: fully equipped kitchen, soft bed, TV, speakers for iPod, sauna, laundry, board games and much more. It is necessary to have your own vehicle, as property located in the mountains and it will help you to explore places nearby like Chamonix, St Gervais. Sallanches, Geneva and of course Mont Blanc.
We cannot fit it in THANK YOU for what we received.
