27/06/19 - Hot news - yes, the plume of hot air from the Sahara that is tormenting most of Western Europe has brought ferociously hot weather to these parts. It has been over 40C at times over the last three days and well above 30C pretty much all day. Ice cream salesman have never been so happy.

Welcome to bisidiski


Welcome to our apartment website.

This spacious, well equipped and very comfortable apartment was completely modernised and re-furnished in 2008. We've now been up and running for around 9 years and have many regular visitors in both summer and winter. St. Gervais is lovely little town and over the last 3-4 years there have been many improvements made to the 'centre ville' to make it even more attractive and pedestrian friendly. Furthermore, the spectacular new bridge (bungee jumping available!!) has diverted a lot of traffic away from the town centre and makes it easier to get down to the lift station.

The apartment is on the second floor of a small apartment building located right in the middle of town, next door to the Office du Tourisme, directly opposite the Mayor’s office, and surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops.

You can see some pictures of the apartment as it is now, as well as some photos from the renovation work, in
'The Apartment' section.

The apartment is very much our ‘home from home’ in France and has been bought primarily for our own use – not for commercial purposes. We are only making it available for others to use because it seems a shame that it is left empty when it could be used by people who enjoy skiing or being in the Alps, and, who we believe will treat the apartment with respect. Oh, and any money we receive does help us to cover our local taxes and electricity bills and make improvements to the apartment.

We are continuing to make small improvements to the apartment and its facilities and we hope that if you stay with us, you find the apartment and St. Gervais, welcoming, comfortable and fun. We have recently replaced the double bed in the smaller en-suite bedroom with two single beds which does allow for more flexibility.

In the bisidiski community section you will find the Photo Gallery and Videos pages, and the new addition, the blog By introducing the blog we hope to publish updates from time to time to give our friends and regular site visitors some information on what's happening in and around St. Gervais. We hope to also be able to publish blog entries from our guests so have a look at the blog page to get some more information on that.

If you have any suggestions for things we can do to improve our website, or if you spot any mistakes, or links that don't work, please let us know by giving one of us a call or via the Contact Us page.

Finally, if you want to know more about the history of bisidiski please have a look at 'About bisidi'.
