About the property

6 Bedroom Ski-in Ski-out Chalet in Les Gets

Chalet Ruisseau is a perfectly located self catered chalet offering modern and spacious accommodation with ski-in ski-out access to the Portes du Soleil. It is built over three floors and set into the hillside, close to the centre of Les Gets.

The open living and kitchen area, warmed by a beautiful centre-piece log fire, offers relaxation after a hard day on the slopes or trials and is the perfect space for catching up with friends and family.

This wonderful space acts as the focal point of the chalet and gives it a brilliant atmosphere, particularly with a large party.

Chalet Ruisseau consists of 6 double bedrooms. For parties of 10+ we suggest that the youngest sleep in our brand new en-suite ground floor room with bunk bed.

With a garage boasting a heated boot rack and ample storage for ski's or bikes it is the perfect place to set out from in the morning and return to in the evening.

The Main slope into Les Gets, and the start of most ski schools is merely a short ski away and the town itself no more than a 15 minute walk, with quicker routes down depending on the weather and footwear!

In summer Les Gets boasts some of the best mountain and road cycling there is. Enjoy the mountain passes and cycle in the tread of Chris Froome when climbing the Col de Joux Plane or venture onto the piste in summer and experience unparalleled downhill trails.

The mountain is even more beautiful in the summer.

We would love to welcome you to our property for your holiday so please do get in touch.

About Frederick Farmer

I have been skiing since the age of 6 and have managed Chalet Ruisseau for 6+ seasons.

With a passion for snow sports and a wealth of knowledge of the local area I will always endeavour to ensure you have the best time whilst staying with us in Chalet Ruisseau

Frederick Farmer purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Frederick Farmer chose Portes du Soleil

The Chalet was the perfect opportunity for our family to get their yearly fix of skiing and cycling. We built the chalet to be open and as social as possible with unrivalled access to the mountain for both skiing and cycling/mountain biking.

Purchased when Les Gets was in its infancy of popularity the resort has now grown dramatically and is now renowned as one of the worlds best family ski resorts.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet Ruisseau is perfectly located boasting some of the best access to the main pistes of Les Gets, over a small foot ridge lies the main blue run into town and gives quick access to the Portes Du Soleil's bounty of slopes.

The Central Log Fire in the open plan Kitchen & Living space also provides a fantastic centre piece for the chalets social atmosphere.

Nice chalet, but not a luxury chalet

  • 3 of 5

This chalet is in a great position for ski in ski out, if there is snow. There is a large open plan living area, surrounded by a number of bedrooms/bathrooms over 3 split floors. The kitchen is large, but not well equipped. As a self catering luxury chalet, this needs to be improved. For instance broken plastic corkscrews, poor knives, inadequate pans and glasses. Thats fine for a standard chalet, but when you state its "luxury" in the title, it needs to be better. Beds were ok, but polyester pillows and duvets. Our small bedroom had a very basic bathroom (youth hostel standard) with a broken light fitting. Not sure about the price, as I didnt book it. Overall I would say its ok, but no where near the standard of many other large chalets I have stayed in.

Feb Half Term @ Chalet Ruisseau

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this chalet to families or large parties. The accommodation is a modern standard, with a very spacious well equipped kitchen. The chalet has a fabulous open plan living / dining space complimented with a gorgeous central fireplace which made the evenings that we spent in all the more enjoyable. We were able to ski in / out in the early part of the week but we were very unlucky with the snow which meant we had to find alternative means to reach the slopes towards the end of the week. This was not a problem because the free Les Gets circuit bus stop is at the top of road, making it easy to reach the slopes by bus. The chalet is a short 15 minute walk into the centre of Les Gets.

The owner was extremely helpfu,l with very prompt responses to our questions before and during our stay, and pulling a few favours to accommodate our early arrival.

We would have no hesitation in booking Chalet Ruisseau if we return to Les Gets.

Perfect Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, Les Gets is a mere hour away from Geneva by transfer and the Chalet itself within walking distance to the town centre.

Our kids’, 8 and 11 could easily ski from the chalet to ski school each morning and we’d pick them up for lunch, with some fantastic recommendations passed on by Freddie. 

We had a wonderful time and have already booked for next year. Great value for money can't wait to come back!

Fantastic Chalet, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and loved it so much we booked to return straight away. It was already a lovely chalet and the work they have done to extend it over the summer has made it even better. Sadly the dates we need for next year aren't available, otherwise we would be booking it again now. Would recommend it to anyone.

very spacious and cosy chalet

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Chalet Ruisseau! We were in Les Gets several times before but the 1st time in a private chalet just for our group. Our experience was that the quality-price balance is the best we ever had. The chalet is situated close to the slopes (put on your skis just above the chalet, and in 1 minute you are on the slopes!). The centre of the village can be reached via the slopes (5-min walk). The chalet is very spacious with a large kitchen and living room and very cosy sleeping rooms. Very nice is the large garage with all necessary equipment to put away your skis. Owner is reliable and can easily be reached via phone/sms/e-mail!
