Saint Gervais – Short Break Ski Holidays an hour from Geneva
Nestled at the foot of Mont Blanc – and one of the six villages serving the Domaine Evasion Mont Blanc, with its 400km of interlinked pistes – Saint Gervais is a handsome 19th century spa town, known historically for its thermal baths.
With its great range of bars and restaurants, friendly locals, and laid back atmosphere, the regency grandeur of the town is a contrast from the wooden chalets that define more traditional Alpine resorts.
As part of one of the French Alps’ largest ski domains, Saint Gervais is a cheaper alternative to staying at the glitzier Megève, whilst accessing the same 400km of pistes.
As one of the easiest ski resorts to access from Geneva airport only an hour away, Saint Gervais’ extensive skiing makes it an ideal resort for a short ski break.

- Just 1 hour easy airport transfer from Geneva
- Ski area covering 1000-2500m altitude
