Property Description

Set in the hamlet of Bionnassay , this spacious chalet with 280m2 of living space has large rooms and would make an great family home for your holidays or as presently, a primary home.

The hamlet is very accessible yet gives the peace and quiet that only the Alps can offer

The chalet is laid out over 2 floors with : ground floor - - entrance with space for boots , shoes , coats etc - large full width living room with open fireplace - large kitchen with spacious dining area - large storage room - office - large bathroom with freestanding clawfoot bath - rear door to wood store and boiler room

First floor - 2 large bedrooms , which could easily create 3 bedrooms if required - further single bedroom - could become an ensuite bathroom for one of the bedrooms - large living area with wood burner which could be kept as a lounge or used for more bedrooms - summer kitchen with direct access to the sunny garden to the rear of the chalet . Again could be an ensuite for one of the bedrooms - 2 x shower and WC on this level.

Set in a very peaceful location at the centre of Bionassay the chalet is ideal for peaceful breaks in both summer and winter and is jsut a few metres from the local inn.

Ideally located between Chamonix and Megeve , Saint Gervais itself is a small French market and spa town at the heart of the 3 rd largest ski area in France, the Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc with 445km of pistes and 5 snow parks and includes the resorts of Megeve, Les Contamines and Combloux as well as Saint Gervais.

The Tramway de Mont Blanc, takes you up to the Col de Voza from where you can ski the Les Houches area and on to the Chamonix valley.

In the summer months the town comes into its own with lovely cafes and terraces around the market place , and presents a wealth of activities from walking, mountaineering and cycling to relaxing at the new pool and swimming in the local lakes. There are golf courses in easy driving range in both Megeve and Chamonix, which is only 30 mins away (26km) and St Gervais is also ideally located for day trips, as Annecy, 87 km, Switzerland 43km and Italy 40km are all within an hour's drive.

Geneva airport is just 85km away and an easy 50 minute motorway drive . Transfer buses also run to St Gervais station year round.

With its first Michelin starred restaurant and two 4 star hotels planned, St Gervais really is the up and coming place to invest in the Alps!

Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc Ski Area

 

A lesser known area that deserves greater recognition as it is the 3rd largest area in France with 445km (276 miles) of piste served by 107 ski lifts and featuring the resorts of Megeve, St Gervais, Les Contamines, Combloux, La Giettaz and St Nicolas de Veroce.  You can also link into Les Houches and onwards to the Chamonix valley via the Tramway du Mont Blanc from St Gervais. The lift pass price is reasonable for such a large area and the atmosphere that of genuine French market towns and villages and not of purpose built ski resorts .  If you are looking for authenticity where French is still spoken in the bars and shops this is the place ! 

The area is one of the easiest to reach from Geneva airport , just 86km so an easy 45 minutes motorway drive and then just 7 minutes up the hill to St Gervais. 

The area is less well known as there are no major tour operators bringing the mass market to the area, however there are plenty of like minded independent travellers and the range of villages means you will find a holiday to suit almost every person and pocket. From the uber rich clientele of Megeve to the family friendly resort of Les Contamines – there is something for everyone. This also applies to the skiing which is varied to suit all abilities and the traditional villages makes this a great destination in the summer months too with a range of activities for everyone.

 

Saint Gervais Ski Resort

Saint Gervais and the Evasion Mont-Blanc area consists of 219 slopes, 107 ski lifts and 650 artificial snow makers. The area also has 2 snow parks and a good choice of off-piste.
