These apartments are spacious, light and airy, modern and nicely equipped. Furnishings are of good quality and the beds are comfortable. The kitchenette was adequate for simple cooking, but as is usual in this type of accommodation, storage space for food was at a premium. There was however generous storage for clothing and ski wear. The apartment was tiled throughout, perhaps carpet in the bedrooms would be a good thing.
The accommodation is approximately 800 yards uphill from the gondola station, so you need a car to go skiing (unless you are superfit). Walking to and from town at night however is relatively easy, taking about 15 minutes each way. Underground parking is available and is useful as there is very limited outside parking and you are left to the elements if you choose not to pay to stay inside. Although the driveway in and out of the accommodation is very steep, the staff were brilliant at keeping it clear and safe, even though we had bucketloads of snow when we were there.
There was a room for storing skis and boots, with a lockable rack for each apartment, but no apartment-specific ski lockers as such. We thought this was a little unusual.
St Gervais itself is great for a skiing holiday, with extensive pistes in easy reach and ample good places to eat in a beautiful genuine small alpine town setting. Would recommend 4 Epices, L'Eterle (great pizzas) and Royal particularly, but there is no shortage of choice.
Overall a good experience and good value considering the outragious prices charged by some in the peak February weeks.
