“Nice well equipped flat”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The flat is relatively large, well equipped and seemed to have been recently remodeled and redecorated. There are 2 large double bedrooms, a convertible sofa in the living/kitchen, and a couple of bunks beds in the corridor. We were 6 adults in 3 couples, on booking I hadn't realized that the bunks are not in room as such, so that was a bit disappointing. The flat probably suits better, a family with young children. We left open the convertible sofa and the 6 of us lived on it. I have never seen a flat with so much stuff bought for Ikea, I didn't know you could get absolutely everything from there, it a really good way of furnishing a holiday home. The heating and hot water work well, there is a separate bathroom and a separate shower room and with 6 we never run out of hot water.
It has good wifi and both UK and french TV.
Saint Gervais is small town, with not much in the way of shopping apart from food, but if your there for the skiing it doesn't matter. If you want a more jazzy place go to Megeve which is about 12km away. Like a lot of french village ressorts it is relatively low in altitude and the snow is not guaranteed at the beginning of the season, we spent our time at les Contamines which is higher.

Many thanks for your review and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were a bit disappointed with the bunk room, which although separate, does not have a door from the hallway. This is indicated on the floor plan, but we will update the property description to make this absolutely clear. Yes, for the best combination of quality, style and price, Ikea is unbeatable!!

“Beautiful, newly renovated apartment in a very special location”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

This apartment was completely refurbished earlier this year and we were lucky enough to be some of the first guests to stay in it. The decor and facilities are modern and stylish but it still manages to be sympathetic to the era and elegance of the building.
The apartment is located about 300m from the town centre so is easily accessible to shops and restaurants. The road in front of the building can be noisy at peak times but that didn't really bother us as there is a lovely little balcony at the back which looks over the large communal garden and has fantastic views of the Aravis mountains.
Hire a car if you can as there are some wonderful places to visit nearby including Chamonix, Megeve and, high up in the mountains across the valley, a little hidden gem called Lac Vert.
We visited in May, which is the official low season, and found a few of the attractions were closed. There was still plenty to do though and we would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and the location at any time of year.
