Villa Saint Jean details
Villa Saint Jean, available to book directly with the owner, is a stunning 5 bedroom period house, oozing character and charm, ideally situated right next to the St Gervais - Le Bettex cable car.
This skier's paradise has been lovingly renovated over many years as a family home and now, due to the children fleeing the nest, is available for rental. Being an old building the property has a mass of period features and a wonderful cosy charm. The owners have very tastefully decorated and furnished the house recently, sparing no cost to create a lovely space to relax in.
After placing your skis in the racks outside, or down in the cellar, you'll enter in to the kitchen, which opens out onto the dining area and then the lounge. The first thing you'll notice is how the owners have cleverly integrated modern comfort and convenience into the house, whilst maintaining the history and cosy feel of the property. There are beautiful old tiles in the kitchen and dining area and rest of the property has its original restored wooden floor (so please, no ski boots!). The dining room is home to a huge dining table that comfortably seats at least 12 and the original, open, wooden stair case flanks the lounge with its fire and large comfortable leather sofas. There's also a separate WC and a laundry room with storage for coats and shoes, a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
Heading upstairs (the stairs are themselves gorgeous) you'll find the first of the double bedrooms. As downstairs, each room has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished in keeping with the age of the house. These are all very large bedrooms, 2 with king size double beds. This floor is also home to the first of the two stunning family bathrooms (this one with a bath, shower, toilet, sink and dressing table, the other on the top floor with shower, toilet and sink) and a second separate WC.
Head up one more flight of stairs and you'll discover the last of the double bedrooms and the snug - a great room for children with its large flat screen TV and DVD player. The second of the family bathrooms is also on this floor.
Heading outside there's parking for up to 3 cars and a large private enclosed garden. There are also a couple of lovely spots within the property's grounds to sit and relax with a cup of tea or even a glass of wine.
“We had the most wonderful holiday at Villa Saint Jean. The house is beautiful and has lovely tasteful furnishing and fittings, if anything it is even prettier than in the pictures. We were a party of 5 adults and 5 kids and the house felt very spacious. We travel a lot and this has been one of our favorite places to stay. We love to cook and to have everything in the kitchen and nice dishes was perfect. The location could not have been better! A short walk to the cable car, bakery and the town. Clare and her husband were very helpful at all times. I don't think we could have found a more delightful and charming holiday home and we sure will be back.It was simply perfect!! I organized this vacation for 3 families and we all traveled from Beijing for just one week so the expectations were high. Everybody, including our teenagers were amazed how wonderful this house was. Simply a gem! It has so much character and having a nice place to come back to makes the vacation so much nicer. I spend a lot ( obsessive amount) of time searching for holiday accommodation and we were all so pleased with our stay. ”
