The St Gervais Les Bains area

St Gervais is an elegant spa town in the heart of the mountains which has retained much of its original character and has been popular since the 1920s.

The Maison de Tourisme in the centre of town is only 2mins walk away and they are very helpful with any enquiries.

The cable car from from St Gervais links into the Megeve/St Gervais ski area with 500km or pistes and 125 lifts. A wealth of varied skiing from complete beginners, easy reds and some more testing blacks on the slopes of Mt Joly or Cote2000. The skipass covers Megeve, St Gervais, St Nicolas de Veroce, Combloux, Cordon, Les Contamines and La Giettaz

There are also marked snowshoe trails, cross country skiing in Les Contamines and tandem paragliding flights...Megeve is renowned as a wealthy, family friendly resort. Nearby is Les Contamines with excellent skiing and not too far away are Chamonix (Aiguille du Midi and the famous Vallée Blanche), Argentiere (Grands Montets) Flaine and Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz. Courmayeur is also a short drive away to experience some Italian sunshine via the Mt Blanc tunnel.

In Summer the area is great for walking, riding, mountain/road biking, sailing, waterskiing, fishing, canyoning, white water rafting, climbing (bolted and trad nearby in Le Fayet and Les Contamines), golf (courses in Chamonix and Megeve) and paragliding. St Gervais has its own tennis complex and open air swimming pool. Nearby, the lakes at Passy are lovely for swimming (supervised area with lifeguard), sunbathing on the 'beach' or enjoying a bbq (in situ bbqs provided) all with views of the summit of Mt Blanc itself!
