The charming resort of Les Gets offers its visitors stunning views of Mont Blanc, endless tree runs and a vibrant town centre. Less than an hour from Geneva airport and at altitude of 1100m the town and the connecting Portes Du Soleil resort enjoys one of the highest average snow falls in the Alps due to the microclimate created by Lac Leman (Lac Geneva).
Les Gets town is a little smaller than many of the popular French resorts but those looking for a more intimate feel with very little commuting to the lifts, will love the atmosphere of the town with its lively apres bars and free entertainment such as the weekly firework displays.
Just 1 hour from Geneva Airport, Les Gets offers a true Alpine Experience. Unrivaled views of Mont blanc with quiet, tree-lined pistes weave down to a charming town center.
The ever expanding town of Les Gets has a true alpine feel as the architecture of all building remains sympathetic to Savoie traditions. Visitors are never more than walking distance from the town centre but for those with tired legs there is a charming “petit train” that will help you get from A to B in style.
The bars, restaurants and shops of the town give great variety and visitors can find fantastic traditional dishes along with food from all over the world. The small open air ice rink in the centre of town offers some off-piste entertainment.
What happens in Les Gets
Every Wednesday and Sunday there are apres ski concerts at the foot of the slopes which bring in large crowds and a great atmosphere, other larger concerts are common in the town from world famous artists such as Prodigy and UB40.
For something different check out Ski Colour in March where you are invited to put on white coveralls and throws paintballs at your fellow skiers. Sounds strange but trust us, it is a lot of fun.
