Tips from Anne on Les Gets

Visited Les Gets earlier this year and loved exploring the shops and restaurants that are conveniently located right next to the slopes. Nice wide pistes, perfectly groomed. Cosy après-ski scene next to the pistes. Most accommodation is within walking distance of the ski area.

Fairytale ski resort

Last year my husband and I went to Les Gets with our children (5 and 7) and we had a super ski holiday. The village is so cozy and exudes a real fairytale atmosphere, especially at night when everythihg is lit up! The ski area was great for the kids and they really had a good first ski experience in my opinion and will want to go again. The lessons were given in a very nice way and they learned a lot in a week. In the village there are many restaurants and we spent a few evenings at the skating rink. We have nothing bad to say about Les Gets - really charming ski resort.

Real French ski resort

We've been to Les Gets many times and still like it. For 2014, I therefore booked again in this authentic French village where everyone is still friendly, both in the restaurants, the supermarket and in particular in the ski hire shops. I have my own ski but because we rented skis for my husband, mine were adjusted for free! You can reach two ski areas from Les Gets, the area of ​​the Mont Chery (very quiet) or towards Morzine and the entire area Portes du Soleil which is a fantastic ski area with lots of pine trees. Gorgeous! For beginners, there are many practice runs and for advanced enough red and black runs. The queues at the lifts are acceptable and at some lifts there is almost no waiting - not even in the spring. From the motorway its only a few kilometers to the resort of Les Gets so it's ideal to reach by car.

Unspoilt, traditional feel

Les Gets has tons of extra activities for kids including a chocolate workshop and a mechanical museum. The resort itself has an unspoilt traditional village charm about it and has built itself a good reputation as one of the most family friendly resorts in the Alps. There are also plenty of child care facilities which are reasonably priced. La Grand Ourse mountain restaurant at the top of Mount Cherie has the most amazing food with some of the best mountain views we've seen yet. The British Ski School here is great.
