Les Gets Ski Resort Information

The picturesque village of Les Gets is about as far from a purpose built ski resort as you can get.

After a day on the slopes you can wander through the pretty streets of this laid back village. Explore the fantastic local market every Thursday where you can sample great local produce, including some of the smelliest cheeses around. More sophisticated retail opportunities also abound!

les-get-family-ski-holidays

Les Gets resort is a hugely popular ski resort for families, and it is no wonder that we often bump into familiar faces who keep on coming back long after their families have outgrown the Ski Famille service.

The resort also boasts an ice skating rink, cinema and even a Mechanical Music Museum where you can discover the history and operation of phonographs, gramophones and jukeboxes, a traditional music workshop, musical toys and much more!

If you fancy a change of pace then head to the nearby Portes du Soleil whose claim to fame is being the largest linked ski area in the world, the area covers 2 countries, 14 resorts, 209 lifts, 288 marked slopes, and a whopping 650+ kilometres of piste. Here you can also find some fantastic dining options or cosy up in front of a log fire and enjoy a warming glass of ‘vin chaud.’

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.
