St Gervais is a famous family-friendly ski resort and spa town in the heart of the French Alps. Apartment MontJoly occupies a fantastic location within it - just a short walk into the centre of town, the nearest ski lift (Le Bettex) and from the Tramway du Mont Blanc. There is also a ski bus that stops right outside, whisking you off to the numerous nearby ski areas of the Mont Blanc Massif - you can be in Les Contamines, Megeve or Praz sur Arly in 10 minutes or up in Chamonix in 20 minutes! The town itself has over 40 shops, restaurants, as well as the superb Thermal Spa down in Le Fayet. The famous Tramway du Mont Blanc is just across the road and will take you to the start of one of the famous routes up Mont Blanc.
The summer months are just superb in the Alps and St Gervais is just delightful with all mountain activities available. The bars, cafes and restaurants extend their outsides and if you want to venture further afield take a car trip around to Chamonix and the neighbouring resorts. At the end of August, the infamous UTMB takes place and runs through St Gervais - this is worth going to watch.
The apartment is well-equipped for an enjoyable self-catered holiday, it easily accommodates 4 people and there are other apartments in the same building making larger groups possible.
