|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
This luxury 2 bedroom property is situated in a brand new chalet complex in the picturesque mountain village of Les Gets, in the French Alps. Les Gets is in the ski area of the Portes Du Soleil which is made up of 14 interlinked resorts.
I was a single guy and a fanatical skier, also enjoyed paragliding, speed-riding and tennis, when I bought the apartment. I am now married and live down the road in Switzerland.
I decided to buy a property in Les Gets, mainly for skiing and its accessibility from the UK (just an hour from Geneva Airport)
Andrew Coulter purchased this in 2006
I chose Les Gets because of its accessibility from the UK (it is just an hour's drive from Geneva Airport) and because it has all levels of skiing. In the Les Gets / Morzine area, there are runs from green right up to black level, but the biggest advantage is the off-piste skiing which few people discover (shh!).
It is never too busy (maximum queueing time in peak season is 10-15 minutes at worst) and skiing home at the end of the day is such a pleasure, as you can ski right to the doorstep. In the morning, there is a four minute walk up to first slope which leads to the lift, but this serves the purpose of warming up the legs.
From there, you then have access to 650km of pistes, all on one lift pass, and can ski right into Switzerland without even showing your passport.
Waking up in the morning to a panoramic view of the valley, you can check the snow and weather conditions on Mont Cherie on the opposite side of the valley.
In summer, the only sounds you hear are the mountain stream and the cow bells.
The village is just a short walk away for shopping, restaurants and bars.
The Chalet is in a great location, virtually ski in ski out and only a 10 min walk into the centre of Les Gets with the ski bus stop at the bottom of the drive. The Chalet has everything you need, there were only 3 of us and it was very comfortable, I would imagine that it could be a bit cramped with more than 4. This chalet would have got 5 stars if the sofas had been a little more comfortable. The owners were very helpful and their restaurant recommendations were excellent. I would definitely recommend this chalet.
We are a family of 4/5 adults, stayed early February 2017. Apartment was one of the best we've stayed in. Very spacious - with large living/dining/kitchen area, and 2 good sized double bedrooms with ensuites. Well-equipped and comfortable. Personal touches like games, magazines, dvds, candles etc make the place more homely than many rentals. Good view down the valley. Plenty of snow when we were there and could ski down from piste to access road to chalet as in photo. Piste was accessed just off access road, couple of minutes up hill; very convenient.. Easy walk into village, and the free bus stops at bottom of access road.
Both Andrew and James couldn't have been more helpful - from the useful notes sent after booking, to the prompt answering of any queries.
We would certainly stay again and would recommend the apartment to anyone wishing to stay in Les Gets.
We stayed in the appartment over New Year 2017. The place is lovely, warm and clean, bedding and towels are provided which is a bonus, also a nice owner gesture to provide sleepers and a bottle of wine- many thanks. The kitchen is well equipped with good selection of utensils, cutlery, plates and mugs. Large and good oven. Only no toaster. Unfortunately we had very little snow which was very unusual so were unable to skin in/out. Generally location is fine and it takes about 10 min of easy strolling to get to the main part of the village. James and Andrew (I understood that they are both owners) were prompt up in replying to my various questions! I would love to stay there again :)!

Thonon Plage -one of many beaches - 40 minutes drive on Lake Geneva
It is only a one hour drive from Geneva airport.
About 10 hours drive from Calais.
A rental car can be useful in Winter or Summer, but is not essential as the village is only 10 minutes walk and you are ON the ski slopes.
10 minutes walk into the picturesque village of Les Gets which has shops, church, post office, bars, restaurants, banks, and, not to be missed, The Museum of Mechanical Music!
In winter the nearest ski lift is under a 5 minute walk making this apartment almost ski in ski out. It is a 2 minute drive to Les Gets town centre or a 10 minute walk. Whether you prefer outdoor pursuits, quiet picturesque retreats or just love the Alps this is the apartment for you.
