St Gervais les Bains Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering chalet with 3 bedrooms, underground parking, large garden

Chalet St Gervais is a privately let, self-catering chalet situated in St Gervais France.

The is set in the idyllic mountain town of St Gervais near Chamonix, only 40 minutes drive from Geneva.

There are 3 bedrooms, comprising 1 double bed and 2 rooms with 2 * single beds. A travel cot is available if required.

The chalet is ideally situated for skiing holidays or to sample the various activities the area has to offer such as climbing, paragliding, mountain biking and the Spa Baths - Les Thermes Saint-Gervais-Les-Bains - renowned for their relaxing and therapeutic properties.

The chalet is right next to the Evasion ski domain (Bettex ski lift is 10 mins walk, 1 min walk to bus stop, or 2 mins drive to free parking area), which consists of over 500km of mainly tree-lined runs serviced by 125 ski lifts. Ski domain includes areas of St Gervais, Les Contamimes, Les Houches and Megeve.

Perfect for skiing in winter and family holidays in spring, summer and autumn. Wonderful resort for exploring the beauty of the French Alps.

Skiing: There is an amazing 500kms of piste throughout the Evasion ski domain which includes St Gervais, Les Contamimes and Megeve. The lift system is highly efficient. Runs to suit all abilities, from wide open greens and blues to steep narrow blacks. There are 3 half pipes and 2 'fun-parks' as well as flood-lit skiing facilities. Off-piste skiing is abundant and possibilities for ski-touring are endless!

Paragliding/Hang-gliding: The ultimate challenge in paragliding and hang-gliding flight has to be the mountains where perhaps the best thermal-ling and cross country flying is found and there is no place like the 'Chamonix Valley' and its surrounding area for superb year-round flying. The sheer altitudes, the stunning views and the tranquillity of what must be Europe's most extensive alpine area, make it a pleasure to visit.

Take-off sites nearby are Le Brevent (15km), Plan Praz (15km), Les Grands Montets (15km), Plan L'Aiguille (15km), Aigille du Midi (15km), Plaine Joux (5km) and many others. There is even a landing site 0.5km from the chalet.

Cycling: The new Diamant Verte circuits make this area a brilliant place for mountain biker beginners, novices, or just plain lazy bikers who want the thrills without all the hard work. The Diamant Verte website is currently only in French, however it gives you a map of the circuits and photos. The lift system only runs in the summer month, however there are numerous cycle tracks available for mountain biking all year round for those prepared to put the effort into cycling up hill as well.

Nearby Megeve/Combloux (easily accessible by 1 cable car up and a downhill) give 100s km downhill rides all serviced by cable cars to take the strain.

In July each year are the world famous mountain bike races (20/50/100/140km) http://www.combloux.com/en/events/mb-race-vtt.html

http://www.combloux.com/images/stories/decouvrir/plans/plan-vtt-2.pdf

For road cyclists there are some excellent training rides within the valley with climbs and descents of varying severity. It's also easy to nip down to the open expanse of the Arve valley floor to put in some longer mileages. And from St Gervais it's quite possible to take in classic Tour de France routes such as the Col de Aravis and Col de Colombiere.

Excellent Chalet in the French Alps

  • 5 of 5
I came across this delightful chalet whilst browsing the internet for a winter getaway for my family and I. Our first family skiing holiday, which consisted of 5 adults and a young baby.
Communication and customer service was excellent with the owner, sending us full details of directions and things to do in St Gervais.
The chalet was fully equipped for bringing a small child and family, and a great location for skiing. Very clean and well maintained, with all the required amenities for a stay.
There are some lovely Boulangeries just a short walk down the road from the chalet for some hot croissants and pain au chocolat for breakfast, and some charming bars/cafes for a vin chaud after a hard day's skiing!
The village itself is charming, and the people very friendly. The tourist office is located just in the town, which is only a short walk from the chalet, and they are great for helping you choose your ski passes and direct you to the best slopes around, of which there are many.

I would highly recommend this property to friends and family to stay, and would definitely choose again if holidaying in St Gervais!

Beautiful, well equiped Chalet close to town

  • 5 of 5
Spacious property in perfect location for telecabine and town.
Free bus at the end of the road to the telecabine but we either walked (10 mins) or took the car (plenty of parking even in half term holiday).
Easy walking distance to town for local supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and bars.
Chalet also has its own driveway with plenty of parking. Wonderful garden perfect for children to play in and build snowmen.
UK FreeSat and Wifi were really useful, making our friends jealous when uploading our holiday photos.
Listing description very accurate.
Lovely and warm and clean.
This was our 4th visit to Saint Gervais and this was the best Chalet we have stayed in.

Comfortable and spacious with great mountain view

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a buddy and liked it a lot. It's quite spacious and clean, pretty much everything you need is there. Big sofas, Freesat TV, Broadband. Good sized kitchen area, comfortable beds, and the underfloor heating in the main living area is very handy for drying out gloves and boots overnight. It's also not far from the stop for the free shuttle bus to the gondola. I had to take a day off from snowboarding and the chalet was still a very nice place to be. Sun was shining, chilled out on the deck looking out over the mountains - bliss! I'd definitely go again.

An excellent chalet.

  • 5 of 5
We found that the chalet lived up to the owners description and our own expectations.The chalet is only short walk from the centre of the village, ideal for picking up fresh croissants for breakfast. We had an excellent holiday and found St Gervais to be a good base for mountain walking within the area.

Warm qualitative chalet - winterseason

  • 5 of 5
All information on website proved to be accurate and truthful. The Chalet provides a 'home' feeling comfort. The location, garage, terras, living/kitchen and bedroom/sanitary equipment and spaces are extremely well balanced. It is a well designed house. The price/quality is also balanced and imposes one to well treat the affairs of the owner and hope to be accepted again as guest for a next visit ! Thank you Alex & family !
