A boutique hotel in village centre…
Recently upgraded hotel with a touch of luxury, in an excellent location with great mountain views
- Charming chalet-hotel, stylishly redecorated
- Open fire in cosy lounge, licensed bar
- Stay on Bed and Breakfast basis
- Afternoon tea included in package
- Member of Ski Weekender team available to help you get orientated on the first morning
Yet it maintains a very warm and welcoming feel, just what you want to come back to after a long day on the pistes, making this an ideal option if you value those little extra touches on your ski short break or to spoil yourself for that special occasion.
Each of the unique and individual bedrooms are a good size yet feel sumptuously cosy, with ensuite bathrooms, most of which have been fully renovated to an extremely high standard.
Catering at Hotel Coeur des Neiges is on a Bed and Breakfast basis, which gives you the freedom to enjoy the excellent bars and restaurants close by at your leisure.
The hotel itself is situated in the heart of the attractive thermal spa town of St Gervais-les-Bains, just a short walk from its range of very reasonable cafes, bars and quaint shops, as well as being within walking distance from the
Our recommended ski hire partner is at the top of the Bettex telecabine, the start of the main ski area. They offer our guests free heated lockers so you can ascend in your normal winter footwear, swap them for your skis and boots and get straight out on the piste with no hassle involved.
At the end of the day simply leave your ski gear in the locker overnight and you’re all ready to enjoy the après-ski that St Gervais has to offer without having to trudge around in heavy ski boots or carry your skis with you to and from the hotel, making it a highly convenient solution.
New for winter 2019 – 2020 at Hotel Coeur des Neiges – Ski Weekender team member onsite
However, this season we have decided to further expand the level of service you receive at Coeur des Neiges, by having a member of the Ski Weekender team onsite during the first part of your stay as well.
One of our Snow Representatives will be available on Tuesday and Friday mornings at breakfast, before heading up to our recommended ski hire shop where they will be able to assist you in getting set up.
Our ski rep will then also be available to offer an on-mountain orientation service during your initial day of skiing.
At the end of your first day on the slopes, our rep will be at the hotel to answer any queries that you may have, to help orientate you and give advice on the extensive ski area you can access for the rest of your holiday.
It is our intention that by having a member of our team there, they can help you to make the most of your ski experience in St Gervais, whilst still being on a more independent stay.
For guests who have stayed with us at our own home base in the past – the ever popular Aravis Lodge, and are used to the very high level of personalised service we provide there, we think this offers a fantastic alternative.
Here you get to stay and ski in a totally new area, with those extra special touches of luxury, yet still benefit from interacting with a member of the fun and knowledgeable Ski Weekender team in resort as well.
We hope you like these new changes that we have introduced, and have a wonderful stay at Hotel Coeur des Neiges!

The hotel has 16 cosy yet stylish bedrooms, including twins, doubles, triples and quads most with mountain views. Each room has an ensuite bathroom, and they have been re-designed with a feeling of calm, comfort and softness in mind, with a real touch of luxury.
Part of that includes offering ‘Le Bar à Oreillers’ – The Pillow Bar – where you get to choose your own pillow, based on your personal preferences.
Rooms have tea and coffee making facilities for extra convenience when you just want to relax in your room after a day on the pistes or a night on the town, and there is free wifi available throughout the hotel.
Hotel Coeur des Neiges – Social Facilities
The hotel has a contemporary and comfortable lounge area with a welcoming open fire, offering a selection of bottled beer, wine and tapas after 4pm. They also stock a range of original ‘infusions’, made from Bach Flower Remedies, and fragranced with thyme, sage and orange flower.
In addition, if you want to relax even further, the hotel has a treatment room, where you can have a soothing massage, using only high-quality products. These need to be pre-booked in advance with the hotel.
In the evening, the centre of the laid-back resort of St Gervais with its low keys bars and restaurants, is only a short walk away.
Hotel Coeur des Neiges – Food
Catering is on a Bed and Breakfast basis, which gives you great flexibility for your dining options. A breakfast buffet, which includes optional hot options as well, is served in the sunny dining room with excellent views across to the mountains and the valley beyond.
A very French-style afternoon tea is also available at the hotel, as a well-earned treat when you return from your day on the slopes.
Although the hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, the team are happy to host a fondue night for your group as an option for a special experience (this must be requested with us well in advance of your holiday), but otherwise you can sample the wide choice of excellent restaurants and bistros in the village itself.
Hotel Coeur des Neiges – Location & Skiing Access
This hotel is located in the heart of the attractive ski resort of St Gervais, just an hour’s easy transfer from Geneva airport. Ideally situated just 800m from the cable car giving you access to the entire ski area of St Gervais, and on to the wider Evasion Mont Blanc ski domain, which gives 445km of skiing in total.
The full Evasion Mont Blanc lift pass is included in your package and will be at your accommodation waiting for you when you arrive.
Access to the lifts and slopes is via the free local ski-bus which stops close to the hotel, or it’s a flat 8-10 minute walk for a nice stretch of the legs with great views on a clear day.
There are heated ski/boot lockers at the top of the Bettex telecabine, meaning you can stroll back to the hotel in ‘normal’ winter footwear without worrying about having to return your skis to the hotel before you can do anything else.
