Les Gets

Les Gets is one of the prettiest villages in the Alps — chic and stylish — both in the town and on the mountain. This is a fantastic place to relax with family and friends. Enjoy a holiday away from the crowds, with mountain biking, white water rafting, paragliding or a few rounds on the 18-hole golf course. We like nothing better than packing a rucksack with wine, cheese and saucisson and taking in the sunrise from the top of Mont Chéry.

Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil, a vast lift-linked area spanning 12 traditional mountain villages across both France and Switzerland. There is mountain biking, road cycling, walking and hiking for all ability levels. Those not climbing or kayaking will also enjoy Les Gets — many of the best mountain restaurants can be reached from one of the 26 lifts, making it easy to meet up with your group for lunch.

Pretty chalets and cobbled streets nestle on a high mountain pass with great views. Les Gets is a beautiful alpine village dating back to the 12th century as a traditional farming community. It’s a spectacular natural location and a real sun trap. The main village itself is incredibly chic, long popular with both local and international visitors. You’ll find all manner of shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars to explore at your leisure.

Les Gets is located in the Haute Savoie and is one of the most northerly of the French Alpine resorts, less than one hour from Chamonix, and benefiting from the Mont Blanc microclimate, it forms part of the Portes du Soleil, the largest ski area in the world comprising of 12 Franco-Swiss ski resorts that will keep you busy for many holidays to come.

Off mountain Les Gets and the surrounding area offers so much to its visitors that it would be easy not to ski at all. There are the basics such as local cinema, large swimming pools and an aquatic centre, bowling, an open-air ice rink, ice hockey, parapenting, ice diving, snowmobiling, tobogganing and snowshoeing. But there are also nature discovery tours, day trips, cheese-making tours, spas, tennis courts, climbing, horse-riding and many cultural events and offerings. The tourist office is one of the most proactive and works tirelessly to offer visitors the very best mountain experiences.
