The village of Saint-Gervais-les-Bains presents a specificity: it begins at an altitude of 840m and ends at the top of Mont-Blanc. This Haut-Savoyard ski resort has the advantage of being a real village, where one can experience many activities all year round: skiing and hiking from Fayet to Bettex, the authentic Savoyard village of Saint-Nicolas-de-Véroce and the L'Armancette Hotel & spa resort, and of course Saint-Gervais itself, with its historic center with typical thermal architecture.
In Saint-Gervais, stores and schools function all year round. The infrastructures, designed for a medium-sized town, allow numerous activities: outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, year-round ice rink, public transport, climbing walls, skiing domain Evasion Mont-Blanc, the Mont-Blanc Tramway, the thermal park, the casino, etc.
The Mont-Blanc Tramway is one of the last rack-and-pinion trains in France: open during summers and winters, it transports passengers up to 2400m altitude in summer. From there, experienced climbers can access the Tête Rousse and Goûter refuges, for the ascent of Mont-Blanc. In winter, the tramway services the skiing domain of Les Houches, and ends at the Col de la Voza, from which you can access the slopes and hiking trails. It is possible to access every amenity through public transport in Saint-Gervais. A bus line connects Saint-Gervais to the Bettex. In order to transit to other districts around Saint-Gervais, you can take the railway, which travels from the Valley to the ski stations.
Saint-Gervais-les-Bains is also known for its thermal baths. Located in Le Fayet, the Thermes de Saint-Gervais-les-Bains, entirely refurbished in 2018, are known for the beneficial properties of its waters for the skin and the body.
On the real estate side, the town of Saint-Gervais has varying prices. Since it is a real ski resort in winter and a mountain spa village in summer, the ski-in /ski-out factor and the view of the Mont-Blanc have an impact on property values.
