About Edward Greeves
We always wished to be in the mountains and finally sorted it in 2007.We are now retired and visit the apartment both in the summer and winter.
Edward Greeves purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Edward Greeves chose Saint-Gervais-les-Bains
We wished to be in an all year round location and spent three years looking for the right apartment in a good position.We also did not wish to have a tortuous drive in snowy conditions--the roads are always open.You do not need to have a car in Saint Gervais as all amenities are in easy walking distance.
What makes this Apartment unique
The views,the views--just says it all !!

An ideal apartment for visiting St Gervais and the surrounding villages - would recommend.
We found the apartment to be very comfortable and it had everything in it we needed. The beds were very welcoming after a long day on the slopes and we found them to be just right for us all to get some good sleep. The apartment is in very close proximity to the village (about 80m), where there are a number of very good restaurants; the guide to these left in the apartment was very useful for selecting where to eat. But most of the time we found ourselves eating in and enjoying telling stories from the day. We had a slight issue with the restricted height parking but that was down to having large 4x4 vehicles and the free car park just down the hill is perfect and only 2 minutes away.
We were met on arrival by David and Jenifer and found them to be extremely friendly and willing to help and had no problems on arrival nor when leaving, which is a great help at either end of the holiday.
Overall, we had a great time and would be happy to recommend the apartment to our friends if they were visiting St Gervais.
Saint Gervais is a traditional all year round resort,very pretty with plenty of bars and restaurants but is not a party town.It is a family orientated resort with easy access to the lifts.The navette bus runs every 20 minutes in the ski season from outside the apartment building. The resort is connected to Megeve on the Evasion ski pass.This pass also allows access to Les Contamines. In the summer the resort is well known by walkers,mountain bikers and cyclists.Many walking trails are well marked,sign posted with estimated times to destinations.The famous Tour du Mont Blanc runs above the town. There is a mountain railway from Saint Gervais to Les Houches built in the 1920's--well worth a trip. There is a modern swiming pool complex ,recently built,available to all. There is also an ice hockey rink available where local matches can be watched.
