Location description from owner
The Rhône-Alpes region
HAUTE SAVOIE One of the most frequented destinations of the skiing fraternity, the département of Haut Savoie has some of the most sought after and chic ski resorts from Chamonix, which hosted the first ever Winter Olympics in 1924, with its Alpine Museum at the foot of the towering splendour of Mont Blanc, to the sophisticated station of Mégève - the first ever winter sports resort, created in 1921. The most visited département in the Rhone Alpes, Haute Savoie is especially rich in natural attractions, the most famous of which is of course Mont Blanc, highest of the Alpine peaks. A delightful mountain tramway takes you from Le Fayet through St. Gervais up to the lower slopes of Mont Blanc to different points depending on the season - either to ski or enjoy the alpine pastures and the views. The journey lasts for an hour. The Aiguille du Midi boasts the highest cable car in the world which first came into operation in 1955. The 20 minute journey takes you to 3,942 metres with a stunning panoramic view of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains. In Summer a cable car journey to Italy crosses over 5 kms of glaciers. In winter there are 20 kms of downhill ski trails.
St. Gervais is a delightful old original town at an altitude of about 800 metres above the valley below. The mountains in the St. Gervais area have an excellent record for reliable snow conditions in the winter. The whole area has so much to offer with the widest range of activities imaginable in both summer and winter, for the young and the 'not so young'. The wooded mountains and views are magnificent and are an absolute paradise for skiers or mountain walkers. While you explore or ski, young children can be looked after at the crèche or kindergarten at Le Bettex, where there are also activity clubs for older children. In summer you can walk for miles on marked paths, in meadows or high altitude, including the well loved 'balcony walks' along the Chamonix valley. Megève, the beautiful town well known by the rich and famous, can be easily reached by car within about 10 minutes or more leisurely with spectacular views via the very efficient mountain lift system. Chamonix, immediately at the foot of Mont Blanc (4807m), can be reached by car within 25-30 minutes and a visit by cable car up to the Aiguille du Midi (3804m high) near the summit of Mont Blanc is absolutely breathtaking.SEASONAL ACTIVITIES: WINTER: ski, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snow shoe walking (snow hikes over special routes), snow park (for special snow activities), ski entertainment area for young children, crèche facility & kindergarten at Le Bettex (next village up the mountain from St. Gervais). SUMMER: tennis, walking, fishing, horse riding, golf (also championship courses at Megève and Chamonix), mini-golf, cycling, mountain biking on marked trails, canoeing, white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking, rock climbing, hot-air ballooning (discovery flight), water sports lake with beach (20 mins), summer tobogganing at Megève and Chamonix, summer skiing on Mont Blanc. SUMMER & WINTER: ice-skating, ice dancing & ice hockey (Olympic ice rink), swimming, paragliding, hang-gliding, thermal baths, mountain railway (St. Gervais to Mont Blanc), activity clubs for children (Le Bettex), sports centre (Megève), mountaineering at Chamonix (with professional guide).SKIING INFORMATIONThe skiing area is integrated into the Megève domain with 360kms of pistes and over 100 lifts and is ideal for mixed ability groups. The pistes themselves vary from pretty tree-lined runs amongst the evergreen forests to large open areas, catering for skiers of all standards, beginners, intermediates and the really advanced. There are snowmaking machines on many runs during the winter for guaranteed skiing. Some areas are specifically allocated for snowboarding and there are large areas for safe off-piste skiing. The mountains included in the lift pass are Mont d'Arbois (1833m), Mont Joux (1958m), Mont Joly (2525m), Rochebrune (1754m), Cote 2000 (2014m) and Jaillet (1757m). MOUNTAINEERINGThe 4810m summit of Mont Blanc rises on the communal territory of Saint Gervais. From the resort, mountaineers can follow the famous 'Voie Royale' to Mont Blanc, conquered in 1855 by an Englishman named Hudson. Start with an excursion on the Mont Blanc Tramway before walking towards the Tête Rousse mountain refuge and a stop over near the 'Aiguille de Goûter'. Climb the 'Dôme du Goûter' towards the Vallot mountain refuge and the final ridge to the summit at 4810 metres. It is advisable to hire one of the experienced professional mountain guides, who have offices at St. Gervais.GOLF INFORMATIONThere are championship courses at Megève, only 15 mins (11kms) by car from St. Gervais and also at Chamonix about 30 mins (24kms) away. Mini-golf is also available at St. Gervais.

- Very Good
“Fabulous location, cosy place, had a great time”
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location in Saint Gervais - one of our favourite ski areas . Have nothing bad to say about it at all but if I was really pushed I would say that the excessive dried flower arrangements need to be reviewed - they cover every free surface. Also, it is very difficult to store food in the kitchen area as all of the cupboards are filled with excessively complicated kitchen gadgets. A bit more free cupboard space would be good. Once we found the garage (directions were great for flat but not good for garage location) we realised that a Golf would fit in it but our 4x4 had no chance. Great holiday - would book again
