We stayed in Samoens with Geeski last winter and had such a fantastic experience, we decided to try Chris’s new ski chalet in Saint Gervais this year. We were not disappointed!
The chalet is beautiful, with stunning mountain views all round. It’s the same catered set up as in Samoëns, but this year we were looked after by Louise and Mike. Their cooking was superb. The banana loaf with Nutella will stay in my memory for a very long time.
There were 11 of us and they constantly went the extra mile to accommodate our requests and make sure that we had a great holiday. It was my husband’s birthday whilst we were there and they went above and beyond to make it a very special day for him.
Mike gave us a lift up and down to the gondola each day and on their evening off, Chris came across from Samoëns and took us to and from the restaurant in town. He even drove us to Chamonix for the day when it was snowing too heavily to ski.
Saint Gervais is a pretty town and a couple of us enjoyed the market on Thursday morning. The trip up the mountain from Saint Gervais station on the Tramway du Mont Blanc was stunning. There is skiing in Saint Gervais for every ability. Plenty of blacks and reds, but also great blues and for the less adventurous of us there’s my personal favourite, the beautiful 3 kilometre long green run Chateluy, accessed straight from the top of the gondola. However, for a complete beginner the only nursery slope by the Bettex gondola is pretty challenging and access to the two other lovely gentle nursery slopes is restricted to ESF classes.

Great hospitality and very comfortable chalet
Just had a great few days at the White Diamond chalet in St Gervais. The chalet has very comfortable rooms plus a steam room and hot tub for relaxing after skiing.
The staff, Mike and Louise, were attentive and produced some lovely food. Can’t find any faults so try it out for yourselves.
