The house is very well insulted and has a heat recovery system as well as its own photovoltaic solar panels producing electricity to sell back to the grid so making the house self sufficient in energy production/consumption including heating and hot water production as well as generating an annual income. The house also uses rain water for the toilets, dishwasher, washing machine and of course the garden taps. Ideally located between Chamonix and Megeve, Saint Gervais is 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 itself. The tramway du Mont Blanc takes you up to the Col de Voza where you can ski the Les Houches area and on to the Chamonix valley. The spa in the beautiful thermal park offers a full range of treatments or just relax in the open air pools with the water at 34ºc and the stars twinkling above and snow all around.

In the summer months there is 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 drive (26km) and St Gervais is also ideally located for day trips, as Annecy, 87 km, Switzerland 43km and Italy 40km all within an hour's drive. Geneva airport is just 90km away and an easy motorway drive . Transfers buses also run to St Gervais all year round. With it's first Michelin starred restaurant, Le Serac and Le Folie Douce a great choice of restaurants, bar and club on the slopes , see the 360º virtual tours and two 4 star hotels under construction 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.
