We really enjoyed our stay in Saint Gervais and the apartment was superb! It had everything we needed, a sublime view from the terrace, nice and cosy, front room had beautiful high ceilings and all in all was a cracking deal for the 6 of us. The one room at the top that we didn't use didn't suit us. You had to go through the double bedroom at the top to get to it, so two of us were in two singles downstairs. The room would be fine with kids. The two couples had the upstairs and the downstairs doubles. Yep it was a good place to stay, well kept block of flats, with taste, the furniture in the flat was nice too. Nothing to complain about, can highly recommend!

Generously equipped, modern and comfortable apartment. Kids were delighted to have access to Playstation, internet and separate tv, parents enjoyed mornings and evenings on the balcony enjoying the amazing views, including watching hot air balloons over the lake in the distance and deer feeding in the forest below. Short walk to restaurants, bakeries, small supermarkets, and weekly markets. Highly recommended.

We stayed in this fantastic apartment for 6 nights - this apartment is not typical of skiing / mountain apartments I have stayed in before - it is far, far better. It is bright and airy with amazing views over the valley in St Gervais and a lovely big balcony which gets the sun in the afternoon and evening. Inside is a large open plan living room / dining kitchen with dining table for 8 and two large sofas which are extremely comfy! English tv is also available which is great if ou can't speak French! A selection of DVD's are also available plus iPod docking stations and wifi.
The kitchen has everything you could need with a full size hob and oven, microwave and dishwasher too plus there is also a washer and drier in the hallway cupboard.
There are four double bedrooms, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs - they are all lovely and there are 2 bathrooms too.
This apartment is truly luxurious and I would have no hesitation in returning for another holiday - I couldn't believe my luck when I walked through the door!
The apartment is about 5 minutes walk from the town of St Gervais and is an easy walk to go and get bread, etc and is in an excellent convenient location.
