Reasons to Buy a Chalet in Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc
There are several reasons for choosing to invest in a chalet in Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc:
The mountains are viewed as a safe haven investment, reinforcing the attraction of spending time in a traditional chalet in a scenic and secluded location. A chalet is a great base for a family holiday, and Saint-Gervais has been awarded the "Famille Plus" label, and strives to offer the best possible experience for young and old alike.
The resort has a rich cultural heritage, with baroque and contemporary art and events such as the Mont Blanc Country Baroque Festival and Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc d'Humour.
Saint-Gervais' thermal spa is internationally renowned, attracting many visitors who come to enjoy the benefits of some of the best thermal waters in Europe, charged with precious minerals and trace elements during their 6,000 year hydrogeological journey down from the snow-capped peaks of the Mont Blanc range.
Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc is the only Haute Savoie resort to have been awarded the "territoire engagé pour mon environnement, ma santé" ("territory committed to my environment and health") label. Forward-thinking Saint-Gervais is ramping up activity to protect and preserve its environment. Projects include the valley lift to link Bourg du Fayet to the village centre and ski slopes at Le Bettex. This lift will use water, in particular waste water, as its power source and help to reduce vehicle use.
Situated in the upper Arve and Montjoie valleys in the heart of the Mont Blanc region close to Megève and Chamonix, Saint-Gervais Mont Blanc offers an exceptional quality of life thanks to its beautiful mountain landscapes, nature, heritage and culture. There is a wide range of activities on offer in both summer and winter, appealing to snowsports lovers as well as those seeking peace and relaxation. A large number of mountaineers also come to Saint-Gervais to climb Mont Blanc via the "voie royale", to take the Tramway Mont Blanc or tackle the Tour du Mont-Blanc. The world's best mountain trail runners are also drawn to the resort by the annual Ultra Trail du Mont Blanc.
Since 1807, the Bains du Mont Blanc spa has attracted an ever-increasing number of visitors with its therapeutic hot springs, recognised as some of the best thermal waters in Europe. The thermal springs represent an important asset for prospective investors in property in Saint-Gervais les Bains.
