About Tony

Hi,

I'm Tony and I first visited Les Gets to ski in 2008, and just kept coming back to this great ski area and beautiful Alpine village. I loved the location and the well designed space in Apartment Montagne, I hope that if you come to Les Gets you feel the same. Please don't hesitate to contact me for any queries about the Apartment.

Tony purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Tony chose Portes du Soleil

A great ski area, beautiful village, easy travel options and a very friendly area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Garnett Family: A great apartment in a quiet location and only a 5 minute walk from the restaurants, bars and village centre. The apartment is clean and comfortable and has everything you need for a good holiday. It is close to the Mont Chery lift and a short walk to the main lift.

it is worth hiring a locker at the main lift for a small cost. If you are used to ski in/ski out don’t let the walk put you off it’s not a problem with the heated lockers to store all your gear overnight. Les Gets is a fantastic resort with great skiing and enough Apres Ski without being noisy. We have stayed in Les Gets a number of times and would definitely return to the apartment.



The Palmer Family: Your apartment was a lovely place to stay - very

comfortable and handy for all the facilities in Les Gets.



Phipps Family: The Apartment was just great, very well equipped and the kids loved the little coin de montagnes.

Lovely apartment for a young family

  • 4 of 5

On arrival in Les Gets (we used powder cabs from Geneva, great friendly service), there was some confusion with another apartment of the same name in the centre, this apartment is on the way out of the town behind the élan fuel station. However, the fuel station is not an issue, you can't see it from the apartment and although it is on the way out of Les Get, the apartment is an easy walk to town and the lifts. We were leaving the apartment at 8:40 wearing ski boots and we were at the top of the red bubble by 9:05, with a quick stop at Contat sports/Sports 2000 to collect skis. (great service, based opposite the lifts and they didn't mind multiple boot and ski changes, plus a midweek ski wax, booked through Snowell getting free hire for the kids).

The apartment had plenty of room for two adults, a 6 year old and a 4 year old. There are three bedrooms, although the single room is accessed through the double bedroom. Comfy beds with towels and linen provided. As the apartment is on the top floor, there are several flights of stairs, poor tired ski legs!

As far as facilities go, there is a dishwasher and washing machine to make life easier. The heating is easy to adjust and the apartment is nice and warm. Plenty of hot water and a good powerful shower. The microwave oven is a little confusing, mostly the microwave function, oven was fine. There was some unexpected extras, including a coffee maker (filters and jug one) and a slow cooker.

The Carrefour is well stocked, quite pricey but a very nice bottle of Gamay for only €4.50! The La Troika bakery for croissants and baguettes. La Case K2 does delicious burgers and fab (and huge) goat cheese salads. La Pela for raclette, great service, beautiful restaurant and delicious food. They recommended two servings of raclette for the four of us and it was plenty...at half the price! On the mountain, Mont Chery side, La Grande Ourse is amazing, great food and views, the lobster and scallop tartiflette, yum! Plus hog roast on Sunday and live music on a Monday, best to book.

For skiing with children, the Indian village is great, picnic lunch in a teepee followed by a pony sledge ride with a yeti and a milka cow, very happy kids! Monday evening (about 6:30ish) a night skiing show celebrating 80 years of ESF, a weekly thing apparently and entertaining.

I would recommend this apartment for young families. It is a very good basic apartment where you can relax and enjoy the town and nearby slopes.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review Georgina, just to clarify: the oven in the kitchen doesn't have a microwave mode, it's oven/grill only. I'm glad that you enjoyed the village and the apartment, thanks again. Tony

A great apartment in a great location..

  • 5 of 5

What a find! We arrived to a spotlessly clean, fresh smelling apartment. The beds are comfortable and the living/dining area has plenty of room (4 adults shared during my stay here March 2015). There is a bakery near by, which we visited daily for fresh bread and pastries. There is a well stocked supermarket further in to the village, all within short walking distance. Free Wi-Fi was available at all of the establishments we visited in the village.

The apartment is at the bottom of Mont Chery. This mountian is not as busy as Chavanne to ski, with mainly red runs. The nearest Mont Chery lift is a short walk away from the apartment and does not have queues like Chavanne, so we purchased our lift passes here. Chavanne is within easy walking distance too however. We hired skis opposite Chavanne main lift, so had choice of leaving skis there at the end of the day or storing them in the basement locker at the apartment block. The village has a friendly, relaxed feel. There are plenty of places to eat and drink, but we enjoyed sourcing most of our evening meals from the supermarket and cooking at the apartment. I will definitely return and am looking into returning in the summer to swim in the lake on Chavanne.

First class skiing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Hi Tony

Many thanks for allowing us to rent your apartment in Les Gets, 19 degrees with plenty of sun and the piste conditions were better than we could have hoped for in April

Full credit to the French who look after the pistes, they do a great job of keeping it all in good condition.

Les Gets has plenty of places to eat out and local shops selling all we need for eating in.

The apartment was perfect for our needs being close enough to walk into town, as my family will tell you I don't do walking after a day on the piste, but even I could manage the 5 minute stroll into town.

The beds were comfy and the apartment was clean and tidy with fresh towels for all.

Andy your resort manager was most helpful he couldn't do enough to help.

Excellent value for money

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a great week in Les Gets, and were really pleased with the apartment. It's very well equipped and makes good use of the space available. We didn't feel cramped even when we added a 6th person for a few days of the trip. Looking forward to 2015.
