About the home
Apartment Mont Joly is less than 400m from the centre of Saint Gervais, and 100m from the Tramway Mont Blanc. The spectacular new bridge across the gorge housing it's own Bungee Jump platform means Telecabine is now only 400m away from the door also. Alternatively a free bus stops outside the apartment at regular intervals during the Winter and Summer seasons. The area is a fantastic summer and winter location, with plenty of activities close by including climbing, cycling, walking, paragliding in the summer, and skiing/snowboarding in the winter. Saint Gervais is a traditional French market town - quieter than the nearby ski resorts of Chamonix and Megeve, but a very friendly ski resort providing easy access to the 400km+ Evasion Mont Blanc ski area. The apartment is fully equipped for guests wanting to self cater, however there are also plenty of restaurants and bars in the town centre for those wanting to eat out.
The apartment has stunning views of the Mont Blanc mountain range (it is on the third floor of the building), and has been recently renovated, with a newly fitted fully equipped kitchen and a new bathroom. It is a very large apartment (89sq metres), with an open plan kitchen/living area including a large oak bench and sofa bed, and 2 bedrooms. The family bedroom sleeps up to 4 people, with a king size bed and bunk beds. The second bedroom has a double bed, and there is a further single bed in an annex off the hallway. The apartment is ideal for families - toys are provided for young children, as is a travel cot, a portable high chair and a buggy. There is a cave on the ground floor providing storage for skis/snowboards/bicycles.

We stayed in Mont Joly for a week at the peak of this summer's heat wave in France. The apartment was blissfully cool at the end of a long hot day's activities. There was plenty to do with swimming pools, lakes, climbing and parcour to explore. The mountain scenery from the apartment was fascinating to watch change throughout the day. The kitchen and dining area was perfect for family meals. The apartment is well appointed with all you need for a weeks or more's family holiday.
