St Gervais is a beautiful spa town with baroque inspired architecture that has been attracting visitors since 1806, when the healing properties of the local spring water were first discovered. Today you can still swim in the healing spa waters of St Gervais' famous thermal parc at Le Fayet - now over 200 years old.
