Saint Gervais Mont Blanc is superbly situated less than 1 hour from Geneva airport and just a few kilometers from Megève and Chamonix. A turn-of-the-century spa town, it offers all the beauty of a small Savoyard market town with its traditional buildings, rich heritage, baroque church and pedestrian areas. Le Regina is located in the centre of Saint Gervais and ideally situated for access to the many bars, shops and restaurants as well as to the ski lift, 10 mins walk away or hop on the free resort ski bus with the nearest bus stop located 20 metres from Le Regina. Please see our Saint Gervais and Surrounds Gallery Generally considered to be the greatest and most spectacular ski area in the world, the Mont Blanc Massif region of Saint Gervais/Megève together with the Chamonix valley is also the most varied and scenic, with Mont Blanc, and its impressive glaciers, Europe’s highest mountain as a constant back-drop. The majestic mountain with its glaciers and forested slopes provides extensive sporting and sightseeing opportunities both winter and summer. The “Evasion Mont Blanc” ski area offers over 445km of slopes and 125 ski lifts from an altitude of 1000 to 2350m over Saint Gervais and Megève and via the Mont Blanc Tramway to Les Houches in the Chamonix valley. For those wanting a real challenge, the ski pass “Mont Blanc” gives additional access to the whole of the Chamonix valley plus Courmayeur in Italy. You could take on the world famous ‘Vallée Blanche’ – said to be the longest ski run in the world at 23km, or the World cup ‘Kandahar’ downhill run at Les Houches. See details of skiing in Saint Gervais. For non skiers there are hundreds of marked paths on the mountain for walking or snowshoeing, a skating rink, ice-hockey, sleigh rides and the picturesque towns of Saint Gervais, Megève & Chamonix to explore (and shop till you drop!). The Aiguille du Midi 3742 m cable car and the Mont Blanc Tramway (from the Station in Saint Gervais Les Bains just a 10 minute walk from Le Regina) provide the easiest access to Mont Blanc and surrounds, a high altitude thrill without the exertion. Taking the opportunity to see more countries as part of your trip, a scenic train ride through the Chamonix valley leads to Switzerland, or the famous Mont Blanc tunnel takes you on a day trip to Italy. Saint Gervais (or to give it its full name, Saint-Gervais-Les-Bains) is also a turn-of-the-century spa town, and the thermal baths, pampering beauty treatments and health-giving therapies make a welcome respite from the outdoor activities at any time of year. The region comes alive in summer with the sights and scents of alpine flowers, green meadows and the fresh air rolling off the glaciers, whilst Mont Blanc maintains its snow cover, giving inspiration to a new generation of alpinists and mountain enthusiasts. The Mont Blanc region has become known as the mountain holiday centre, and for good reason, as the choice of activities available is vast: walking, biking, climbing, mountaineering, paragliding, rafting and canyoning; the towns of Saint Gervais, Megève and Chamonix also have excellent infrastructure including year-round lift access to the slopes. For those looking for a more sedate holiday, there are plenty of spots to sit and read or catch a few rays whilst taking in the views. Photographers beware, you’ll need plenty of film or memory cards! There are also plenty of opportunities for seeing more of the area, with both Courmayeur in Italy and Martigny in the beautiful Valais region of Switzerland within 50 minutes’ drive. The picturesque town of Annecy with its beautiful lake offering a range of watersports and lakeside activities offers a great day trip. We are happy to recommend day trips, guided ski tours and extra winter / summer sports activities either before or during your stay.
