Description

Three minutes walk from the centre of the delightful 19th Century spa village of Saint Gervais les Bains is this 30 year old detached chalet which has been fully renovated to provide a contemporary but comfortable home.

The chalet which uses much traditional wood to provide the Alpine ‘feel’ also benefits from modern communication systems such as Wireless Broadband and modern audio visual entertainment throughout. The satellite television provides access to the usual UK satellite channels. Swimming pool in summer and clear mountain air combine to provide the tonic you need. 50 minutes from Geneva Airport, 7 minutes from ski lifts to Megeve-Saint Gervais ski domain, 15 minutes from Chamonix. 1 minute walk from Tramway du Mont Blanc providing direct access to Les Houches, Mont Blanc mountaineering, Tour du Mont Blanc and paragliding take off sites.

Notes on accommodation: The chalet has underfloor heating which is very effective. Because the chalet is laid out over four floors and has balconies and a swimming pool it is best suited to adults and older children. Our young nephews and nieces have had a super time here summer and winter but the under 5's obviously required more supervision from adults. Outside, Summer: The outside living space is fantastic. A patio with decking surrounds the pool and has fabulous views of the Aravis chain of mountains on the other side of the valley. Barbeque'ing is very special and at night the patio is lit with outdoor lighting. The pool is about 30 feet long and is heated in Summer to in excess of 26 degrees Celsius. There are outdoor tables, chairs and sun loungers. There is parking for up to three cars to the side of the drive. Utility Room: In the garage: includes sink, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and freezer. Space for clothes drying and hanging. Ski and boot storage in ample garage. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Fully laundered cotton bedlinen and towels are included in the price. Reasonable chalet cleaning at the end of your stay is also included. Any other arrangements can be discussed on an individual basis. Other: Second living room in basement lends itself to evening and night-time use and has a high quality audio visual system. Contemporary and 'moody' it is a great place to unwind after the day. Sofas, chairs and wine fridge. Sauna comfortable for four.

Saint Gervais is a beautiful Savoyard village with a friendly atmosphere. It is home to Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc and has been a popular holiday destination for over a hundred years. There are a number of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants and every Thursday morning there is a market and the village's main square is a hive of activity.

St Gervais has a huge number of activities on offer. It is popular with walkers and cyclists in the summer - it is one of the starting points for the Tour du Mont Blanc.

A fantastic place to stay

By Natoli on 05-Aug-2023

We spent an amazing week at the chalet which is in a fantastic location. Saint Gervais Les Bains is a gem in the alps and has everything you need from bars to restaurants to shops. A great place to spend time with extended family due to the abundance of space. The pool was great and there are phenomenal views across the mountains. Communication with the owner and local contact was excellent throughout. Overall we had a very relaxing stay and hope to be back in the future.

Wonderful, cosy chalet.

By Catherine Toplis on 04-Mar-2023

We were a party of six adults, a toddler and a baby. The chalet accommodated us easily there being more than enough loos and shower/bathrooms so no morning queues delaying departure for the slopes. Whilst we had our own transport it was a bonus to find the flexibus navette outside our door, departing every 10/15 mins. for the Bettex lift and train du Mont Blanc. Also just a five minute walk in to town to pick up breakfast croissants and not too far to stagger back after apres-ski refreshments. The chalet living/dining area was spacious and the adjoining outside balcony great for sunset views, whilst the kitchen had every possible utility and bits of kit imaginable. We would love to return to this fantastic chalet.

The perfect ski retreat

By Jude Hartley on 25-Feb-2023

Chalet Wilks was the perfect place to come back to tired from the excellent skiing that Saint Gervais has to offer. Spacious, comfortable, with unbeatable views and a fabulous open plan living/dining space. With the ski bus stop immediately in front it required such little effort to get onto the slopes and just a short wander into the village. Melanie was so helpful throughout the booking process and our stay and it felt as though we were welcomed into a home - not just a holiday let. The sauna was the icing on the cake. I would highly recommend anyone to stay and imagine it would work equally well in the summer.
