The Resort: Saint - Gervais ski resort

Situated at the foot of Mont-Blanc, the spa resort of Saint-Gervais has attracted tourists since 1806 and today is popular with discerning skiers. Set in a narrow river gorge halfway between Megève and Chamonix, the landscape is impressive wherever you look.

The small alpine town of Saint Gervais offers diverse après-ski and an excellent selection of interesting food shops, cosy bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Every Thursday morning in Saint Gervais village there is a superb genuine market.
