Les Gets is surrounded on both sides by thick fir-forested mountains, sloping up towards gentle peaks. Luxurious wooden chalets dot the hillside, buried in snow in winter and surrounded by wild flowers in summer. The town centre is a busy strip lined with shops and boutiques, apres-ski bars and restaurants, with narrow streets leading to the older stone architecture of the town.
The village of Les Gets is located on the col between Morzine and Samoens, just over one hour's drive from the Geneva Airport on the E25 motorway. It sits on the very western edge of the Portes du Soleil ski area, views of Mont Blanc to the south are possible on sunny days from the top of the ski resort.
There are a good variety of restaurants in Les Gets with everything on offer from Michelin star food to pizza and pommes frites. There are eateries boasting food from all over the world including Spanish tapas, French Canadian feasts and the classic Savoie dishes made with local ingredients, in addition to several cafes and snack bars.
Les Gets is the capital of mechanical music with it's own museum and each year hosts a mechanical music festival. Mont Chery has panoramic views to Avoriaz as well as Mont Blanc and the Aiguille range. There is also a small lake by the school for swimming and sunbathing on long Alpine summer days.
In summer Les Gets is a MTB mecca with a vast area of trails to suit all levels, bike parks, a pump track and a kids zone. There's also pony riding, paragliding, bowling and an adventure park to be explored. In winter Les Gets is a sparkling winter wonderland with an ice rink, carousel and sledging area, not to mention access into the 650km of pistes that the Portes du Soleil has on offer.
Local Golf Clubs
With views across to the rocky summits of Roc de Enfer and beyond, the Les Gets golf course sits on grassy mountain plains. Each hole is named after a nearby peak, with Mont Blanc (hole seven) being the trickiest. The course is relatively short, but quite tight, and has a good variety of holes to make it really interesting to play. There are lessons and golf club rental available, and there is a restaurant at the clubhouse for refuelling. To access, take the Route des Chavannes from the centre of Les Gets, there is parking at the top or you can take the shuttle bus that runs every hour from town.
Local Ski-Lift or Piste
The fir-lined runs and rolling pistes of Les Gets make for a great family ski holiday. There is quick access on the Chavannes lift into the Morzine and Les Gets ski area, which then allow you to link up with lifts out of Morzine itself and onwards into the rest of Portes du Soleil. Alternatively, the Mont Chery side of the resort provides a peaceful escape, with long, wide blues and reds and a challenging bumpy black run down the backside of this secluded mountain.
A good mix of live music, DJ nights and apres-ski make Les Gets a happening place to be after a day out on the slopes. There are cocktail bars and a brewery to sample, all situated on the main drag that runs through the centre of Les Gets.
