Saint-Gervais-les-Bains

Saint-Gervais-les-Bains is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. The village is best known for tourism, and has been a popular holiday destination because of its beauty and location since the early 1900s. It has 450 km of ski pistes, reputed to be the third largest domain exclusively in France, and is one of the least busy ski areas of its size[citation needed]. In 1892, two hundred people were killed when a water pocket in a glacier above the town suddenly burst open, causing destructive flooding. (Wikipedia)
