Overview

St Gervais les Bains Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio recently classified 2*

Bright and quiet apartment in the village centre close to facilities and shops. Ski and thermal baths shuttles 30 m in front of the building. Free covered parking 40 m. Ski lift 5 minutes which is ideal for skiers, Spa clients and hikers. Discover cable cars, caves, walks and mountain rides, museums and rack trains (tramway of the Mont Blanc) on site that lead you 2300 m in altitude to a glacier surrounded by more than 4000 m peaks and Montenvers Mer de Glace 20 km. Many spectacular glaciers to see again and again in the region. I wrote a small practical guide about the region that I can send by e-mail so that you can prepare your holiday. Charges (water and electricity) included.

At your disposal in the studio: raclette and fondue machines, coffee machine, toaster, micro-wave, DTT television, radio, baby cot, booster seat, kettle, universal electrical adaptor, small garden furniture on the balcony, board games and books (novels and comics).

You can visit the blog of Saint-Gervais.

The accommodation is composed of 2 double beds and a folding bed so it sleeps up to 5.

A service of sheets, towels and table linen rental is offered by the dry cleaner’s “Neige et Soleil” in the village centre.

We can issue an invoice so that you can be reimbursed by the social security (if a course of treatment has been recognise as necessary) or by your works council for your leaves.

Small and very functional studio ideally located and perfect for a ski week or to spend pleasant holidays in summer and discover the mountain fauna and flora.

About Laurent Gouchault

I’m passionate about mountain, especially this area with stunning panoramas and glaciers. I even wrote a small guide to share my knowledge of the area with my guests.

I work as a train steward and I’m often away on business but I also have spare time thanks to my flexible working hours.

Laurent Gouchault purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Laurent Gouchault chose St Gervais les Bains

When I discovered this piece of heaven, I decided to buy a pied-à-terre in order to often come back. I have no family ties in this region except that my heart is still tied to this place!

Mountain keeps you hooked!

What makes this apartment unique

Since my purchase in 2005, every year I try to improve the comfort and the decoration and I can confirm that the guests who come back since 2006 find it clearly nicer and more pleasant than it was when I bought it.

I bought it because I’m in love with this region and because when I finish paying my loan, I will get extra incomes for my retirement.

Good sized studio apartment in centre of town

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located within the main square of Saint Gervais. Short 10 min walk to the main cable car (Saint Gervais Bettex) lift up the mountain, or 2 min walk to the free bus.

Saint Gervais is located approximately 1 hour drive from Geneva airport, we usually hire a car for convenience, and there is plenty of free parking in a covered car park approximately 100m from the apartment.

The surrounding area and mountain is ideal for all skiing / snowboarding abilities, and provides an expansive and very beautiful location to explore, the ski area covered by the Saint Gervais lift pass includes Saint Gervais, Megeve, Saint Nicolas, or by buying an Evasion Mon Blanc pass you also have access to Les Contamines (ideal if there isn't much snow), and Chamonix (for 1 day)

Great value apartment, ideal for small groups or families (2 x double beds, and 1 x single pull-out bed), without feeling cramped.

Apartment has all the facilities you could need during your stay, whether you plan to eat in, or out at one of the many restaurants in the village.

Good regular communication from Laurent (owner), very helpful if you have any questions about the apartment or surrounding area.

Highly recommended apartment, and will definitely look to stay again in future.

Saint-Gervais is located at the foot of the Mont Blanc on the West slope.

Direct access by train or motorway A40.

Saint-Gervais is the highest village in France because contrary to what everybody thinks, the peak of the Mont Blanc is not located in Chamonix but in Saint-Gervais.

The setting is green with many woods planted with high conifers and forests up to 1200 m in altitude. The well-marked and traversable paths are numerous to discover the massif and its spectacular glaciers.

Saint-Gervais is a remarkable tourist site thanks to its landscapes and is a small flowered mountain town protected from big structures which really depreciate the landscapes.

Tourist site implies furnished flat rating. My building has been classified “2 stars” on 28 June by the Departmental Union of the Tourist Offices of Haute-Savoie.

This is a seriousness proof and I commit to satisfy my guests.
