Chalet Lottie 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 a twin room with 2 * single beds, and triple room with bunk beds and a single bed.
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)
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.
As keen runners, skiers, climbers and mountaineers we were drawn to St Gervais and Chalet Lottie. The quieter resort of St Gervais was very appealing, yet near to the bustling town of Chamonix to allow us to use the facilities when we needed, but also be able to escape to enjoy mountain life.

The convenience of being only 45minutes from Geneva airport, coupled with being only a few minutes walk from alpine meadows first attracted us to Chalet Lottie. Having stayed nearby on numerous occasions for skiing and climbing holidays, and more recently while training and then racing in the Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc running race, we finally decided to take the plunge and find our own mountain chalet in a village we have grown to love.
Chalet Lottie sits just a 10minute stroll from the well served St Gervais. With a number of shops, supermarkets, local restaurants and cafes, St Gervais is well equipped for everyday needs. A short drive can take you to the larger towns of Chamonix, and the towns of Sallanches and Passy for more specific equipment and larger stores.
Near both Megeve and Chamonix. Perfect for summer and winter holidays.
Ideally situated for skiing holidays, being only 10-15 minutes walk (or 2-3 minutes drive with free parking) from the main ski lift.
