Restaurants and Bars
St Gervais has a good number of restaurants, and most are reasonably
priced. Traditional Savoyarde dishes
are popular on the menus, but there are other choices if you prefer.
St Gervais is a quiet town compared to many ski resorts, but there is
a good selection of bars, including the Oboose Bar just a few minutes
from the apartment - which we can highly recommend.
tourist office website has a full list of both bars and restaurants.
Being a popular tourist destination, there are a number of shops selling
souvenirs, but also regional products frequented by tourist and resident
alike. Apart from that, all the usual suspects are there - boulangeries,
patisseries, supermarkets etc. A
full list is available here.
