St Gervais Attractions

Thermal Relaxation!

Geneva to St Gervais Transfer* Relax and revitalise in Les Bains du Mont Blanc - make the most of the thermal waters (naturally heated to 39 degrees) all year round and discover the 1000m2 thermal spa in the tranquil setting of the Parc Thermal in Le Fayet, situated at the bottom of the hill below St Gervais. A three hour entry ticket gives you plenty of time to enjoy the relaxation rooms, the bubble therapies and the outdoor pool too and you can indulge in massage and beauty therapies too

St Gervais Bus* Go bungee jumping - Saint Gervais is very proud of the road bridge that opened in 2012, sitting 90m above the Bonnant gorge. Now some bright spark has decided it'd be fun to bungee jump off it. We can't think of anything worse, but the Bungee Mont Blanc is incredibly popular and open to all adrenaline freaks from 13 years of age. Get ready to cry 'Un..deux..trois..BUNGEE!'

Geneva from St Gervais* Fly through the trees - the tree top adventure park in the middle of the Parc Thermal will have kids (and adults) squealing with delight and/or fear as you zip along on the high wires, clamber along rope bridges and generally have a whale of a time halfway up a tree. There are trails of varying difficulty, so adventurers as young as four can give it a go

Geneva St Gervais shuttle* Learn to play tennis like Serena or Andy - the tennis club at Saint Gervais offers excellent facilities and has a very good reputation. Book some lessons with expert tuition to sort out that dodgy serve, perfect your double backhand or just learn the basics to be able to play a match

St Gervais Destination Guide

Home of Mont Blanc!

St Gervais TransferIt might surpise you when you we say Mont Blanc isn't actually in Chamonix! Strictly speaking, the peak of western Europe's highest mountain is in Saint Gervais. What's more, the summit is moving. Mont Blanc was always thought to be 4807m, until geometricians measured it properly and it was actually 4810m (this is great stuff for dinner parties and pub quizzes isn't it?!). And St Gervais has a fight on its hands to keep the summit, as apparently it had moved 26m towards Italy when it was re-measured in 2009!

Geneva to St Gervais

And of course, this all means that the vast majority of alpinists who attempt Mont Blanc setting off from the Nid d'Aigle high above Les Houches are technically doing so from Saint Gervais. This route is called the 'Voie Royale' or the classic route and involves a long, hard slog via the Tete Rousse and Gouter refuges to attain that famous summit - and hundreds attempt it every summer.

St Gervais TransferIf all that sounds far too strenuous, there is plenty to keep all the family occupied in both winter and summer in St Gervais. If you're there for skiing you will love the range of pistes on offer. The main uplift is the Saint Gervais - Bettex bubble lift, where there is a massive free car park and regular navettes through town to take you there. You can also access the slopes from the St Nicolas de Veroce area and halfway up the slopes at Bettex itself.

Geneva airport to St GervaisOnce you're up there you're linked directly to the pistes of Megeve too, so there's plenty to explore. Freestylers will love the WOSP park at Mont Joux complete with air bag and there are plenty of viewpoints to take in the breathtaking vistas of the Mont Blanc too, along with a good choice of mountain restaurants, from rustic to self-service. There's even La Folie Douce (once again, Megeve might claim it, but this famous apres-ski bar and restaurant actually sits in St Gervais, at Mont Joux!) so you can party on the pistes too.

St Gervais Geneva* Take a ride on the Tramway Mont Blanc - all aboard for a voyage to the peaks on France's highest rack and pinion railway. Setting off from next to the main train station in Le Fayet and going via St Gervais and various hidden mountain hamlets on the way, you arrive at Col de la Voza in the middle of the Les Houches ski area. In summer the train carries on to Nid d'Aigle at 2372m (the staring point for the Mont Blanc ascension), whilst in winter the terminus is Bellevue at 1800m

In summer it's all about the great outdoors and mountain sports. If you're a road biker there are some fabulous routes that traverse St Gervais and mountain bikers are well looked after too, with a good selection of trails with easy access via lifts. Those lifts also carry hikers and walkers up and down the mountains, where you can visit farms and buy the tastiest cheeses and other freshly made goodies direct from the producers.

Geneva to Saint Gervais TransfersThe commune has invested a lot of money in the sports centre, which now boasts top class tennis courts and a swimming centre, meaning you can play a few sets of tennis and then plunge into the pools afterwards. As well as the 17x10m outdoor pool, there's a 25m long indoor pool and a 43m2 leisure pool (with a kiddie area too) and a sauna and hamman.

The town centre is a true delight. Since the fancy new bridge that means through traffic by-passes the centre opened, it is a great place to sit outside an have a coffee, take a meander around the weekly market (held on Thursdays all year round) and generally just take in everyday life in bustling little Saint Gervais.

Geneva to St Gervais TransferThere are just enough bars and restaurants to satiate your appetite, without it becoming a rowdy apres-ski resort. With many grand hotels having been built at the turn of the 18th century, lots have been turned into rather lovely restaurants and bars.

And remember, all this and a whole lot more is just an hour away on your transfer bus from Geneva to St Gervais! What's not to love about beautiful Saint Gervais?
