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; not just to ski, but to relax with family and friends. The pistes run right back to the heart of the village where bars and restaurants meet the slopes, making this an ideal location for family ski holidays.

Les Gets is part of the vast Portes du Soleil, the world’s largest ski area with more than 650km of pistes spanning 12 traditional mountain villages across both France and Switzerland. There is skiing for all abilities, be that young first timers or adventurous skiers looking to test themselves on tough slopes. Those not skiing will also enjoy Les Gets — many of the best mountain restaurants can be reached on foot allowing you to meet up with your group for lunch. The scenery is beautiful, with an abundance of stunning snow shoe walks or spots to simply take in the incredible views.

Les Gets is a beautiful alpine village dating back to the 12th century as a traditional farming community. Pretty chalets and cobbled streets nestle on a high mountain pass with great views. It’s a spectacular natural location and a real trap for both sunshine and snow! 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 forms part of the Portes du Soleil, one of the largest linked ski areas in the world comprising 12 interconnected ski resorts across Switzerland and France offering:

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.
