The chalet is laid out over 3 floors, with a balcony entrance into the main living area or main front door downstairs. Underfloor heating and a wood fire keep the chalet cosy, while there is a large dining table seating 8+ easily. The galley style kitchen has a Siemens oven and a Bosch induction hob. There is plenty of tableware to host a great dinner paries, or for casual dining at any time. There is a family shower room on this floor also, with loo and basin.
Upstairs are two bedrooms - one with a super-king 6ft/180cm bed and ensuite loo/basin, the 2nd with a 4ft 6in /140cm bed and a separate single. There is also a desk/workspace on the landing in case you have some work to do!
Downstairs can be found the large 3rd bedroom, with a 4ft 6in/140cm bed and french doors out to main garden and the magnificent view across the valley. The 2nd shower room is also downstairs, as well as a large store room, the washing machine, and the front door.
NB The 3 larger beds will be made up for 6 by default - if you need the single too, you MUST let us know in advance of your stay.
There is a fondue set - you may need to buy some gel fuel, or you may be lucky! There is also a raclette/table top grill.
There is a commercial coffee bean grinder - you can set the grind level, for instance for espresso, or filter coffee. There is a stove top espresso maker and also a cafetiere.
Outside there is a balcony running round half the chalet, and a sunny garden area, with access up to the drive and garage, where skis/boots can be stored.
The chalet is well maintained, cosy, working well and very practical - but do note that it is largely unrenovated since the 90s and will receive a large renovation later in 2022 - check out the photos to get a feel.

Do let us know what beds you want made up - by default the 3 large beds will be made, so you MUST tell us if you want the single made up as well. There may be the option for an 8th bed (suitable for a child), if you can bring your own sheets - but you must let us know.
Winter tyres and/or snow chains are mandatory in the winter. Do be careful. The drive down to the garage can get slippy. Do ask if you are concerned before your departure, and we can give advice or check the latest situation. After heavy snowfalls, we can ask the local farmer to clear the drive, there is a motorised snow blower in the garage that we can talk you through using (no instructions on site), and there are varied shovels in the garage - just ask.

The chalet is in a quiet, and residential area below the Bettex mid-station, in a hamlet called La Cry. It is off the main road up to Bettex, in a cluster of 5 or 6 varied properties, many of which are lived in all year round.
There are a huge number of marked paths that can be taken from near the chalet - down to town, up to Bettex, across to St Nicholas, or across to Monts Rosset and on round the mountain towards Megeve. There is fantastic walking all round.
To drive up to the Bettex telcabine takes 5 minutes (or 30 minutes walk), and there is free parking there - get there early at busy times. The Sherpa local food store is just below the car park.
You can see webcams of much of the domain by searching for Saint Gervais Webcams - allowing you to see the situation up at Bettex, and dream of being there again soon! Do checkout the details of the Evasion/Mont Blanc ski area - its fantastic and huge.

Summers are fabulous too with Mont Blanc and mountain ranges dominating the view and hundreds of amazing walks to enjoy. Even autumn enjoys plenty of sunny days and walking is great.

The Mont Blanc tramway runs from Saint Gervais and takes you up high under Mont Blanc - an institution.

Saint Gervais town is a fantastic little town with great restaurants and plenty of interest, including a large indoor swimming pool and indoor ice rink. Its 10 minutes drive down the hill.
Megeve is flasher (and almost as close) - very smart with a larger range of shops and and luxury goods. Its barely any further away by car - about 15-20 minutes.
Chamonix is also close, just 25-30 minutes drive, or head through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Courmayeur.

Having a car is easiest. With a car Bettex lifts are a 5 minute drive away (free parking), while Saint Gervais town is 10 mins, and Megeve 15 mins.
Walking up to Bettex is 20-25 mins, and down to town probably 1 hour, but steep home!

There is a bus service running up the road, about 100m from the chalet. Search for Facilibus online for timetables - the route nearest the chalet is Route G, Champlong/La Cry to Bettex telecabine. It runs in French school holidays in the winter season (not all year round - do check) and interlinks with other buses to go down to town and around the area. There is an app, Pysae, that you can download for Android and Apple, allowing you to browse the different lines, the timetables, and also setup your favourite routes. Best of all, you can see the buses moving around, and time your departure/return to catch one! There are designated stops, but just flag the bus down. They are free.
There is also a large car park up at Bettex, so you can drive up and park there for free while skiing/walking. In busy weeks it can get packed, so best to get there early.
