In the heart of the pretty resort of Les Gets, this large chalet-style hotel has been owned for 4 generations by the Mirigay family. Ideally located at the foot of the slopes and lifts its a great base for both winter and summer holidays alike.
The hotel has 48 rooms for 2 to 6 people decorated with light wood, and all are equipped with a real attention to detail. Deep pillows and comfortable duvets provide all the rest needed for an unforgettable holiday. All rooms include a TV and WiFi access.
Family suites are also available at the hotel and can accommodate between 4 and 7 people in 45 - 130m2.
After an active day on the mountain, guests can make the most of the hotel's spa which feature a luxurious indoor pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi where you can relax and revive aching muscles. Treatments are also available if you want to truly indulge on your holiday.
For even more choice and modernity, there is a sister hotel which opened its doors in 2012. With 8 stylish and welcoming rooms, located above the spa and pool and directly.
You can hire electric bikes from the hotel if you stay as a summer guest.
The overflowing indoor pool adds to the sophisticated alpine environment that the hotel has created and is built within wooden and stone walls. There is a small section at one end of the pool with sun-loungers where you can relax after a refreshing swim.
During the winter months, the pool is open between 10:00 - 12:00 and from 16:00 - 20:00. There is a lifeguard present, but parents remain responsible for the safety of their children and may not leave them unattended. In the summer the pools is open from 08:30 - 20:00 unsupervised.
The bar is a refreshing combination of chic alpine furnishings and modern quirky eccentricity. There are comfortable leather sofas with sheep skin cushions, colourful chairs, art deco lights and log fires. The bar serves a range of aperitifs, wines and beers as well as tea coffee and home-made pastries during the day. Take a look at the menu.
Unlike most hotels, La Marmotte wanted to ensure that its guests had a choice of dining options and consequently offers their guests a choice of three restaurants. You'll find classic French and International cuisine with a modern twist at the La Piste Noire, traditional Savoyard specialities at La Pivotte and a Brassiere Grill restaurant, Biskatcha.
The hotel offers both B&B as well as half board rates.

- "In 20 years, this is the first time time my wife wants to return to a hotel, that's how good it was. Thierry is fantastic and really made us feel welcomed, spoilt and sooo well looked after. He was absolutely brilliant. He has been with the hotel for 24 years and makes every guest feel so personally cared for. The facilities are top class and the choice of three restaurants was a huge plus as being there for a week we appreciated the diversity. Pool, spa and games room facilities all brilliant. As importantly this town has a lovely feel to it - alpine ambiance, friendly people, caring attitude amongst shop, restaurant, bar owners. Wonderful alpine retreat - we will be returning!" - Trip Advisor
- "This hotel and it's friendly staff exceeded our expectations and will become a regular for us on our ski trips! Love the ambiance, great central location and awesome hospitality, and it has one of the best spa facilities anywhere." - Trip Advisor

The town 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.
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.
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.

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.
