Chalet 241

Saint Gervais-les-Bains - Winter 2016

This is it !

What we have dreamed of, for the past five years. Our home for the 2016 Ski Season.

So all that is now left to do is to invite all our family and friends over to join us.

The Chalet is nicely located for easy access to the slopes.

You can either take a five minute drive down to the main car park to catch the St Gervais Bettex Cable Car lift up to the Plateau or catch the free shuttle bus which stops just 100 meters away.

When conditions are good you can also ski across from the Chalet to the red run just 200 meters away.

Chalet 241 is divided into two parts - Two for One!

The upper part contains the main lounge, kitchen and three bedrooms and mezzanine (two double and three single beds) sleeping ourselves and five guests.

The lower part of the chalet contains an extra two bedrooms and kitchenette (one double and a triple bunk bed) sleeping an extra five people. This part is available to us for all of January, February and Easter.

So we can accommodate up to a total of ten guests at one time.

Saint Gervais-les-Bains

The centre of St Gervais is just 1.5 miles away.

St Gervais is a very tradition French Village with numerous good value restaurants selling the local cuisine.

There are also a number of local activities for the non-skiers such as the famous Thermal Baths, Ice Skating and Swimming.

Visit the Caves, Churches, Cinemas, Museums, Historic ruins, Thermal spas, Discos, Casinos.

The ski area is vast with over 450 km of piste with easy access over to Megeve to see how the other half live.

There is plenty of easy green slopes for the complete beginner skiers to have a go with a starter lesson or two and plenty of wide blues/reds for the more accomplished skiers.

Access is very easy, St Gervais is located just 45 minutes from Geneva Airport where you can fly into using the budget Easyjet airline for around £50 off peak.

As we have no fixed arrival and departure days you could easily fly in Thursday evening and return Monday morning for a long weekend or stay for a fortnight.

Transfer to St Gervais is via train (to La Fayet where I can pick you up) or ski bus. (Alternatively I can drive over to the airport and pick you up, max four).
