lovely well equiped apartement, helpful owners
Well situated apartment with great views, lovely pool to relax in after a busy day out in the summer. Very helpful owners. Well equiped with everything you need including lots of uk adaptors. Wifi in reception only but resolved for out teesn by purchasing Hippocketwifi renta for the week online ( works really well) Can walk into st gervais -10 -15 min walk ( longer back as all uphill!) plenty of free parking in town if you prefer. Good location to visit surroundning areas- Highly recommend going up the agile du midi cable car at chamonix, worth the price for the breaqthtaking views!
A compact, neat and cozy apartment
The property is in a block, but is quiet and private. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The lounge area is small, but easily seated all to watch the varied collection of dvds. The kitchen was functional, with oven, hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. the dining area seating six of us very easily. There was access to a ski room with cupboard in the basement.
At the height of the season you could, no doubt, have skied in and out of the property, though the snow was gone by the time we got there. The main ski lift could be seen from the property, and was reached easily. You could walk, but we found it more convenient to take the car. There was also a bus stop within 200 yards that would take you up the mountain to another lift.
It was a short walk (or drive) to the village, where there were numerous shops and restaurants. A large Intermarche store was a further drive away.
We skied for 6 days, near the end of the season. Although a number of pistes were closed, there was still plenty of skiing to be done, as the resort links to the Megeve resort also.
We did have a very good time.
Excellent skiing apartment
I recently stayed in this apartment as part of a group of 7 friends. The apartment is lovely, the beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped and having 3 bathrooms was very useful.
I would recommend hiring a car to get there as when we went there was not enough snow to ski back to the apartment.
Overall, very good value ski accommodation.
