Les Gets, France

When, over twenty years ago, we started looking for a resort which would be ideally suited to the needs of families, Les Gets shone out.

The picturesque village of Les Gets is about as far from a purpose built resort as you can get. Real people live in Les Gets all year round, the land is still farmed and you can wander round the weekly market every Thursday to purchase everything from the latest fashions for mountain folk (think 1950's Eastern Block chic) to alarmingly smelly cheeses. More sophisticated retail opportunities also abound!

Many Ski Famille guests have been sucked in by the charms of Les Gets over the years and we often bump into familiar faces who keep on coming back long after their families have outgrown the Ski Famille service.

Most buildings conform to the "chocolate box" vision of an Alpine village but you also have access to all of the modern facilities you would expect to find in a bustling modern ski resort.

Nightlife is not the reason that people choose Les Gets, but there are plenty of relaxed bars for an aprés ski beer or two. Restaurants serving traditional Savoyard food dominate the options for eating out, but there are choices covering everything from a quick pizza to fine dining.

Les Gets is about more than skiing, eating and drinking (although you can of course restrict yourself to these without a problem!). There are numerous events taking place in the resort throughout the season alongside activities such as dog sledding, paragliding and hot air ballooning.

Eating Out

La Croix Blanche - Chavannes - 04 50 75 80 66

There are a lot of places to eat in the Chavannes area of Les Gets but Croix Blanche (at the top of the 'Red Egg' telecabine) is the pick of the lot. On a sunny day a salad the size of your head on their terrace is sheer joy!

La Grande Ourse - Mont Chery - 06 79 42 58 86

On the slopes of Mont Chery the Grande Ourse must have one of the most spectacular views of the Alps. Not cheap but rarely crowded and the food and service are of a very high standard.

la Païka - La Turche - 04 50 92 85 22

Just off the blue run leading down to our Mouflon chalets the Paika is well worth seeking out. A homely retreat for a long lunch on a cold day or a super spot for a drink on the terrace.

Le Vaffieu - Pleney - 04 50 79 09 43

On the Pleney ridge between Les Gets and Morzine this is a popular spot where you need to book (it is walkable from the Pleney telecabine). Traditional Savoie food and great service.

Rossetaz - La Rosta

It's easy to ski past Rossetaz without spotting it as somewhere special - big mistake! On the menu are salads, pizzas and burgers and most are in portions that can easily be shared between two. If you go there early on in a holiday we guarantee you'll return before the week is out.

Chez Nannon - Nyon - 04 50 79 21 15

Picture a rustic mountain shack with hearty (mainly meaty) food and you have a vision of Chez Nannon. Busy whatever the weather it has very limited space inside so it's worth booking on a cold snowy day.
