About Helen Vincent

We are 2 couples who live in the UK and have a passion for the outdoors and mountains. We all enjoy skiing, snowboarding cycling and sharing these adventures with our children and friends. Having skied in Europe for many years we found we increasingly came back to Porte du Soleil, with its varied skiing, fantastic snow record and easy access from Geneva airport and the UK by car. Every time we stay in our chalet we find it a real struggle to leave!

Helen Vincent purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Helen Vincent chose Les Gets

We immediately fell in love with Chalet La Penote due to its location, Alpine charm and character, and its views over the valley to Les Gets. Its perfect setting on the sunny slopes provides us an ideal base for enjoying the mountains winter and summer.

What makes this chalet unique

Stunning views of Les Gets town and the valley. Comfortable chalet with log fire and light airy living room. Quite position on the south facing sunny slopes of Mont Chery (Les Gets' secret slopes). Versatile chalet with 7 bedrooms or can 4 bedroom as half chalet available on certain dates.

Guestbook comments from the manager

If you want a traditional, cosy & clean this is the Challet for you.

Within a 2 mins walk you can ski to the chairlift.

The location is perfect if you want to be a short walk from all the main Restaurants and bars and there's plenty to. Choose from :)

Real fire makes you feel very cosy and relaxed.

I would recommend this chalet to any of my family and friends any time off the year.

We are hoping to stay again next year and go for the MTB season in spring and summer.

By far the best Chalet I have stayed in whilst I've been skiing.

Great for non skiers too

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to stay if you ski as my 10 friends did, or as a non skier like myself. I found it so easy to go up on the lift and meet everyone for lunch. It was really lovely to just find myself a deckchair, sit in the sun and watch some of my group whilst on their lessons. Once I got the hang of the buses (so easy) there was no stopping me, I could then go further afield and get to Alpine restaurants you would never have thought possible to a non skier. I would definitely recommend to friends for winter or summer, the chalet is ideal for any time of year. There is plenty to do in the town, and if you run out of shops you can always take the 5 minute bus journey to Morzine where you will find more shops and plenty more things to do.

Great place and price!

We enjoyed staying at this Chalet. Our children liked too. It feels like at home. Located not in the centre of the village, but 2 min by the car. Quiet position and perfect views! Thank you Helen!

I would firstly like to say that the pictures do not do it justice!

Fantastic chalet with everything that you could need and more.

Close to a slope which was great for the skiers but the two members of our party that were non skiers had a bit more of a trek to town and their ski lessons which were at the Chavannes lift. For this reason we needed to use the car a bit more than we planned.

We had a great afternoon skiing on Mont Cherry with it's wide slopes which were empty! And we thoroughly enjoyed a night in with lots of local foods and wine around the large dinning table after a long day skiing.

We found the chalet to be very clean and comfortable with lots of hot water water at all times and the owners were most helpful in answering any of our questions with a very quick response rate.

I would not hesitate to recommended This Chalet to Anyone and i also think it would make a fab base for a biking holiday.

I hope to stay here again soon.

Perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

A great Chalet with comfy beds all round. Plenty of room to cook and cater for our entire party. Lots of toilet/shower rooms which is useful, and the showers were brill and never ran out of hot water.

Best bit for us was the fact that the Chalet lies towards the bottom of Mont Chery (which has to be one of the best mountains in the Alps in terms of quiet skiing and incredible views) and so we were able to finish skiing there each day and ski straight back to the Chalet.

The Chalet is also reasonably close to town with an easy walk down and an ok walk back up, provided you have some decent footwear. But for those not wanting to walk, the bus was very easy to use which took us straight to the door.

A great week!
