What a lovely apartment. We had a great time. Getting to the lift was just a stroll in the morning as we left our kit in the lockers every day. The apartment had all you would need for a ski holiday. Nice and warm, comfy beds and well equipped. Loved the town too for a drink or something to eat after skiing.
Very good apartment
Compact apartment with 2 reasonable size bedrooms and lots of storage space. Well fitted out with plenty of crockery, glasses and cutlery and a good dishwasher, cooker and fridge freezer. Large balcony, but we didn't really use as we were out skiing most of the day but would be wonderful in the summer. The apartment is just a short walk into town and a quick drive to the ski lift. You could easily walk but with 2 small children we drove, it has space for 700 cars. We left our ski's in a locker at Le Bettex. The ski area is perfect for all, beginners to the most experienced skiers. The beginners slopes are particularly good and the children progressed extremely well. We really enjoyed St Gervais and would thoroughly recommend.
Lovely apartment with amazing huge balcony with lovely mountain views.
The apartment had everything you needed and was very clean bright and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and there was lots of storage space.
Lovely apt in great location
This was our second time in this apartment in st gervais. The apt is very well equipped and there is ample storage space (we were a family of 2 adults 3 children). It's clean, well maintained and there is a large balcony which catches the sun . St gervais has a lovely village , kids playground and fantastic swimming pool. We had a fabulous week skiing this year with mostly quiet empty pistes. The apt is very well located for the main lift bettex and also short stroll to village and amenities. We used ESF ski school and found them kind and accommodating with our 4 year old. The evasion ski area is vast and there is more than enough to keep skiers of all abilities happy. Would have no hesitation in coming back !
A Lovely apartment in a great position
This apartment is spacious, well equipped and furnished, and in a great position for skiers / snowboarders looking for somewhere in St Gervais. with the ski bus at the end of the road, walkable into town each night to ease those aching legs, and walkable to the Mont Blanc Tramway it could not have been better. We were greeted by David who had lots of useful information for us (although this was our fourth trip to St Gervais) and was extremely helpful. We were four adults and the bedding arrangements suited us perfectly. I would heartily recommend this apartment
Very well equiped, clean and tidy apartment
I would have no problems recommending this apartment. It is very clean with all the home comforts you'd want. The kitchen is well equipped and the dish washer came in very useful. It has a great location; 5 mins walk to the town centre and 10 mins to the cable car. The owners looked after us brilliantly and went out of their way to make it an enjoyable stay. Thanks

The recently built Via Ferrata Curalla at Passy, about 15 minutes drive from St Gervais towards Geneva, is graded AD+ (Assez Difficile; technically easy but exposed enough to be a bit scary).

There is a wonderful non commercial leisure park in the mountains at Les Contamines with sandy beach swimming, biking, horse riding, rock climbing, tennis,abseiling (you name it!) Les Contaamines is 10 minutes drive.

Located 5 minute walk from the picturesque centre village. Nestled in a narrow gorge between Chamonix and Megeve - 2 of the most fashionable ski resorts in the French Alps, Saint-Gervais les Bains is a Spa Resort, which has attracted tourists since 1806. Situated under the majestic back-drop of Mont Blanc, yet only 50 mins drive from Geneva International airport, this beautiful small alpine market town with its Baroque church and pedestrianised areas, offers amazing scenery and an excellent selection of interesting local food shops and cosy bars and restaurants. There is a good local market every Thursday and amongst its other attractions, the town of Saint-Gervais offers a theatre and an ice skating rink plus an outdoor heated swimming pool for the summer. It is the only resort in the French Alps to combine the pleasures of skiing and other mountain activities with those of health and beauty spa treatments.
Besides skiing, guests can vary their trip with other exhilarating sports and activities, from snowboarding, cross country skiing, walking and hiking, husky sledding, tobogganing and ice skating. Saint-Gervais offers a host of summer activities as well. A trip up the mountain on the Mont-Blanc tramway, one of the last rack and pinion trains in France, is not to be missed. You could paraglide around the mountains or enjoy a leisurely round of golf at Megeve. You can take the cable car and enjoy the sunny terraces of alpine restaurants, in the fresh air and with stunning views of Mont Blanc.
