Look what happened now...
Hello! I have another "Throw Back" Post today. This time Saint Gervais, France. I wanted to go some where different for my birthday in 2010, so we decided to visit the alps for a week! :D
We were in the South of France that year, so it was pretty easy to get there. We flew into Geneva, Switzerland and had a car service pick us up and transport us to the gite.
It was August, so off season, but was really a nice holiday. Also The annual meteor shower was exceptional viewed from the alps!
Warning: Picture heavy post.
So I was really daring and booked this place last second. (Not something I usually do) But got a GREAT Deal. Like I say is was off season, so that helped too.
I have a TON of pictures from the trip, well I should say HAD, these are a few I pulled off Snapfish, again. Sadly all the rest are toast, :( So please to enjoy a trip to the French Alps.
St Gervais les Bains (also referred to as St Gervais or St Gervais Mont Blanc) is not a recently purpose built resort, and so has a significant year round population, (approx 5,200) rather than just seasonal. It is full of historical buildings giving it the traditional charm much sought after in the alps.
The Village is also famous for its flowers. You will see villages marked with flowers symbols on maps in France. This means they have won awards for the beauty of their flower decorations.
Bakery was very good.
But be warned only a VERY FEW people in the village speak English.
There was a good sized (for Europe) Casino Market in town too, If I remember correctly.
It looks like I am going to have to cut this post in half. Uploader is not working and is taking forever. So one more shot of Mt Blanc and more next time.
Just a Woman in the World. Sometimes a lonely traveler, sometimes with the Krewe. Eating, shopping and meditating my way through life...
