The Rhone/French Alps region
St Gervais and its surrounding area is famous for the great skiing in winter and in summer the climbing, cycling and walking. The town has a good snow record in the winter and in the summer and autumn it is warm and sunny.
St Gervais Les Bains
Saint Gervais is a beautiful savoyard village with a friendly atmosphere. It is home to Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc and has been a popular holiday destination for over a hundred years. The village is steeped in history and the lovely baroque church is the central point of the village. There are a good range of shops, supermarkets, bars, potteries, art galleries and restaurants and every Thursday morning there is a market, when the village's main square becomes a hive of activity.
St Gervais has a huge number of activities on offer. It is popular with walkers and cyclists in the summer -it is one of the starting points for the Tour du Mont Blanc - and in the winter Saint Gervais has a large ski area (over 400 km) which links to nearby Megeve. The Evasion Mont Blanc ski pass will give you access to St Gervais, St Nicholas de Veroce, Les Contamines, Megeve, Combloux and La Giettaz. The Mont Blanc Tramway can be taken from Saint Gervais to the Bellevue plateau (1800m) or the Prarion giving skiers access to the Les Houches ski area in winter. Or it can be taken by walkers or those just wishing to see the wonderful panorama in winter or summer.
Parapenting, water sports and golf (the nearest course is Megeve) are all easily available nearby.
For those who would like to relax a little St Gervais's famous thermal parc offers complementary therapies and massage. The village also has an open air swimming (open June-September), an olympic sized ice rink, tennis courts and mini-golf (summer only).
The towns of Megeve and Chamonix are just a 20 minute drive away and the pretty medieval town of Annecy is one hour away should you wish to explore a little further.
