Reviewed 21 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Thank you Rob and Grace for providing us Kerr's with a perfect base for our Ski ing holiday this year, the appartment Is laid out really well and was very warm and cosy. Well positioned a short walk from the town and across the road from the bus stop where we caught the bus to the telecabin. Really well equipped kitchen which made eating in easy. Looking forward to re booking next year xxx

“A very lovely apartment with all amenities & views & short walk to town.”

A wonderful trip after playing hockey in St Gervais les Bains 51 yrs. ago with my daughter who turned 50 & her husband & my wife who was never there. The apartment is very nice with 3 balconies each overlooking a different mtn. range. It is well equipped with all the amenities. It is very close to the town center & has lots of restaurants & a great area for walks. We were there 11 days & rented a car & travelled to many points of interest. Very easy to get around. Don't miss visiting Chamonix & taking the cable car to the top of Aiguille de Midi. Would go back to 15 La Residence if we have the chance to travel there again.

“15 La Residence is centrally located,easy access,clean & comfortable .”
Reviewed 9 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife & I are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our eldest daughter & husband. It is a promised trip to my wife since I played hockey here in 1965. The apartment was everything that we could want. Recently redecorated in a contemporary style it has all the conveniences one would require. We are here for 11 days with a rented car & we have seen many of the places of interest including, Chamonix & Aiguille de Midi, Lac Annecy, Megeve, Mt. Bettex & will see Geneva, & Turin & hopefully Lugano. If there is a negative to the apartment it would be the traffic noise which can't be helped & didn't bother us that much. We missed a long handled broom.

“A beautifully restored apartment, well equiped, modern and close to both the town and the main Gondola.”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed at La Residence in January 2016 for a short ski break. The village is only a short 1 hour transfer from the airport for ideal if you don't have a lot of time. The apartment is in a fabulous building and on the first floor so easy to access with lots of bags and ski gear. It also has a secure ski/boot room at the entrance. The bus to the main gondola is across the road, although we hired a ski locker at Le Bettex and so it was a lovely 10 minute stroll.

The apartment is spacious and has been renovated to a high standard, it has great facilities including Sky TV. It's a 5 minute walk to the beautifully quaint town of St Gervais which has many bars and restaurants serving good quality food at reasonable prices - thankfully they serve more than the traditional Haute Savoie fondues and Raclettes!

We really enjoyed our time at La Residence, so much so that we have already booked to go back next year.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 30 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This apartment is in a perfect spot close to everything, the ski bus stops just across the road and it's just a five minute walk to shops, bars and restaurants. The apartment is warm, cosy, comfortable and very well equipped with a ski and boot store on the ground floor. The master bedroom has great views of the mountains and if you want to eat in, the kitchen has everything you need. The building itself is a delightful conversion of a period hotel with lots of original features and the apartment has managed to keep the best of these whilst incorporating a high quality modern refurbishment. St Gervais is a lovely town with lots of character and the skiing is absolutely exceptional. The apartment is really good value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying here.

“Nice well equipped flat”
Reviewed 15 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The flat is relatively large, well equipped and seemed to have been recently remodeled and redecorated. There are 2 large double bedrooms, a convertible sofa in the living/kitchen, and a couple of bunks beds in the corridor. We were 6 adults in 3 couples, on booking I hadn't realized that the bunks are not in room as such, so that was a bit disappointing. The flat probably suits better, a family with young children. We left open the convertible sofa and the 6 of us lived on it. I have never seen a flat with so much stuff bought for Ikea, I didn't know you could get absolutely everything from there, it a really good way of furnishing a holiday home. The heating and hot water work well, there is a separate bathroom and a separate shower room and with 6 we never run out of hot water.
It has good wifi and both UK and french TV.
Saint Gervais is small town, with not much in the way of shopping apart from food, but if your there for the skiing it doesn't matter. If you want a more jazzy place go to Megeve which is about 12km away. Like a lot of french village ressorts it is relatively low in altitude and the snow is not guaranteed at the beginning of the season, we spent our time at les Contamines which is higher.

Many thanks for your review and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you were a bit disappointed with the bunk room, which although separate, does not have a door from the hallway. This is indicated on the floor plan, but we will update the property description to make this absolutely clear. Yes, for the best combination of quality, style and price, Ikea is unbeatable!!

“Beautiful, newly renovated apartment in a very special location”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

This apartment was completely refurbished earlier this year and we were lucky enough to be some of the first guests to stay in it. The decor and facilities are modern and stylish but it still manages to be sympathetic to the era and elegance of the building.
The apartment is located about 300m from the town centre so is easily accessible to shops and restaurants. The road in front of the building can be noisy at peak times but that didn't really bother us as there is a lovely little balcony at the back which looks over the large communal garden and has fantastic views of the Aravis mountains.
Hire a car if you can as there are some wonderful places to visit nearby including Chamonix, Megeve and, high up in the mountains across the valley, a little hidden gem called Lac Vert.
We visited in May, which is the official low season, and found a few of the attractions were closed. There was still plenty to do though and we would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and the location at any time of year.
