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. Wonderful resort for exploring the beauty of the French Alps.
The chalet is has been extensively refurbished in the last 2 years and features a brand new kitchen with new appliances, a fully refurbished family bathroom with separate bath and shower, aswell as a downstairs shower room.
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.
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.
