About the property

Self-catering, 80m2, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6/7

This charming apartment (1 hour from Geneva airport), on the ground floor of an elegant chalet, offers a superior level of charm and comfort. Located on the lower slopes of the Mt. Blanc massif, it is equidistant (5 km) from the resorts of St. Gervais/Megève and Les Contamines, with their 500+km of ski slopes. Chamonix is nearby. Summer walking and other activities are endless. The region is well-provided with high-quality shopping, dining and cultural offerings. Wood paneled, tastefully furnished. Equipped with modern features such as floor heating, Internet/WiFi, fully-equipped kitchen, plasma TV, DVD player and films, modern fireplace and washer-dryer. Large terrace and garden with Alpine views on all sides. Beautiful bed and bath linens are provided. Two double bedrooms (one with extra bed) and one with bunk beds. Two full baths, one en suite. Own entrance and parking. Located in a quiet hamlet easily accessible from main roads. Further info and photos at www.chalet-charm.eu

The special attraction of this beautiful chalet is that it is in a quiet, romantic hamlet and yet is very close to ski slopes, excellent restaurants, luxury shopping and cultural and musical events in St. Gervais, Contamines, Megève and Chamonix. Equally suitable for summer and winter vacations. There are unobstructed mountain views on all sides. A car is necessary. Access roads are paved and cleaned regularly by municipal snow plows, but snow tires are essential and chains may be needed in rare cases. Multilingual owners can provide practical information about the region. Other services, for example initial shopping, can be provided on request, and we are very flexible in accommodating to your needs. Further information and photos can be provided on request. Preferred form of communication initially is email. Additional photos can be sent by email on request. Especially appropriate for families.

Beautiful chalet and location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent and luxurious accommodation. Great attention to detail for all your needs in bathroom and kitchen. Clean and good quality linen throughout and exceptionally well maintained property. Excellent customer service, owners very friendly and hospitable and we were greeted with a complementary bottle of wine and homemade marmalade. Great wood burning stove and plenty of hot water to ease tired ski muscles. Lots of space to chill out and relax. Location quiet and a little isolated from restaurants but if you enjoy cooking this is not a problem. Ideal location if you don't mind driving to the ski lifts at Les Contamines, St Gervais and Megeve. Snow chains a must if it snows heavily. Spectacular views of the mountains and closest to the resort of Les Contamines. We had an excellent stay and would recommend without reservation. Would love to stay in the summer to experience the mountain walks. Will definitely go back.

Beautiful apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in the aprtment with my boyfriend and my parents over the summer and had an amazing time. It felt more like being in a real chalet than in an apartment. the two double bedrooms are bright and spacious with the added bonus of having an en-suite. The small bedroomwith bunk beds is perfect for children. The kitchenette is very well equipped. There's everything one might need. I was especially please to find that all appliances were brand new and perfectly functioning. There is a very large fridge-freezer which we found very useful since we like doing big shopping trips down at the large hypermarkets. There is also a washing machine and a tumble-dryer at hand, shred with the appartment upstairs which is normally occupied by the owners, Jon and Gabrielle. They are very kind and hospitable and were there to assist us whatever we needed. All decor and furnishing is new and very tasteful (no Ikea!). The only negative feedback is that the Sat TV doesn't have any Italian channels - my parents are italian and don't speak English or French, so it was a bit disappointing for them. A nice collection of DVDs, on the other hand, makes almost up for it.The apartment is quite close to town, but a car is essential. Facilbs stops about 2km from the chalet. Definitely the best accommodation we've found so far in St Gervais and we're hoping to return next year.

In the heart of the 'Mont Blanc country', about 5 km each from two ski and summer resorts: St. Gervais (joined to Megève by cablecar links) and Les Contamines (adventure park and Roman road leading over passes into Italy). The valley of Chamonix (Mont Blanc tunnel, glaciers, cogwheel train) is near. Megève and Chamonix both offer upscale shopping and cultural attractions. There are summer music festivals (jazz and classical) in nearby Cordon, St. Nicholas-de-Véroce, and Megève. Wide range of excellent restaurants including many in Alpine settings. The chalet is located at the intersection of a vast network of mountain walking trails, including the Tour du Mont Blanc.

Other Activities: Adventure park for kids, donkey rental, rafting.
