About Karel and Mariette Merks

We are a Dutch couple with 4 children who moved from Holland to Saint Gervais in 2006 to never leave again. The quality of life, with all the outdoors possibilities are second to none. In 2010 we bought Villa Les Marguerites and spend the next couple of years renovating to it's current standard.

Karel and Mariette Merks purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Karel and Mariette Merks chose Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

Villa Les Marguerites is a well known fixture in Saint Gervais. It has served a good part of it's history as a 'Maison de Repos'. When it became available we seized the opportunity and re-converted it in a comfortable family home with a large separate apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Location-location-location.

Did we mention location? Villa Les Marguerites is located on a small quiet private road. Privacy secured, while at the same time the main ski lift and the village center with (ski)shops, bars and award winning restaurants are just minutes away.

Park your car for the week, or even better, leave home without it, and arrive by plane or train.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A group of us have stayed at Les Marguerites each year for the last 4 years, and plan to go again next year. Ideally situated, with a 5 minute walk into the town centre and 5 minutes to the main ski lift. Wonderful area for skiing in Winter and walking in Summer. A large apartment on the top floor of a nice chalet. Very friendly and helpful owners. I would highly recommend it.

Saint Gervais is part of the 'Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc', catering for all types of skiing and winter sports in Saint Gervais, Megeve, Les Contamines, Saint Nicolas de Veroce, Combloux, Le Jaillet and La Giettaz with over 130 ski-lifts and more than 400 km of pistes. The legendary skislopes of Chamonix are only 20 minutes away.

Other Activities: Golf courses, Thermal Bath / Spa and the Tramway du Mont Blanc and Termal bath

Spacious, clean, good location.

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious, with excellent storage and facilities enabling a great family atmosphere. Only negative is the advert said there was a washing machine, so we brought less clothes, but this is an error.

However, we were offered to use the hosts facilities.

Lovely apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, very spacious and comfortable and well equipped. It was in a great location, 5 minutes walk to the ski lift one way or 5 minutes walk into town. This was our first visit to St Gervais and we loved it. The skiing was good and would have been great with a bit more snow and the town itself was really nice and full of character with some very nice restaurants. We definitely hope to come back and would stay here again without any hesitation.

Excellent well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Les Marguerites is a great apartment, really well located for the town and for visiting The region. The apartment is exactly as the photographs and very well presented by the hosts.

The terrace balcony is massive and a great bonus. (Photo ?)

We were 2 persons but the apartment could easily accommodate 7 with lots of space.

Early summer Weather did not stop us having a great time & hope to come again.
