About Adele & Phil Davies

We live in England with our 3 boys (17, 13 & 10yrs). We both work full time and look forward to our holidays in Les Gets to have well deserved breaks.

Adele & Phil Davies purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Adele & Phil Davies chose Portes du Soleil

We fell in love with Les Gets after visiting "Le Portes Du Soleil" area many times. This was our favourite and most picturesque resort. Our apartment is based on the Mont Chery Mountain and offers ski-out, ski-home at the end of an exhilarating day. The views of Mont Blanc from the balconies are absolutely breath taking and the views down to the village are also lovely. (The village church looks like a magical chocolate box when it's lit up at night). The apartment in housed in the first Chalet of six, where you have peace and quiet from the village hussle and bustle but if that’s what you like it's a 10 minute walk down and 15-20 minutes back up.

What makes this apartment unique

There is parking at the apartment should you decide to drive to Les Gets, whether from home or a local airport. If flying, you may however want to forget the car and book a transfer as - snow permitting - the apartment is most definitely ski in - ski out!

Summer is great for Mountain Biking and again on the last trip home you can take the lift up and past the apartment and just cycle down home. The golf, water sports, children’s facilities and entertainment in the village are all great.

Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

A perfect clean, well appointed, comfortable apartment to return to after each days skiing/boarding with our two children aged 10 and 14.

Les Gets has a huge variety of ski runs for all abilities and a beautiful village with tons of restaurants.

My husband even managed to do a paraglide off the top of Mount Chery.

Lovely holiday and very very comfortable bed!

Thank you.

Summer Visit

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful summer cycling holiday. The venue was perfect with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We really miss the view of Mount Blanc when waking up in the morning. Thank You

Children; ESF (French Ski School)

6mths - 4yrs - "Les Frippouilles" - Welcomes infants with qualified nursery staff based by the Town Hall. The children are supervised during indoor activities (painting, drawing, story-telling etc) and also enjoy the joys of snow in the little secure garden. (We have used this facility with my two youngest and can highly recommend.) You can book just 1/2 a day upwards!

Piou-Piou club is for skiing beginners from 3-4 years old - 50% learning to ski and 50% indoor or outdoor in a protected area. - Choose from 1 week of 1/2 days or full days.

Ourson Club - This is an introduction to skiing in a dedicated area with qualified, patient staff and instructors. They take children from age 4.

Coast/Beach:

There are a number of pebbly beaches around the swimming lakes at Les Gets and Montriond - 5 and 15 minutes by car - and sandy beaches can be found on the shores of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), a 45 minute drive away.

Travel:

Geneva Airport is approximately a 1 hr drive away.

Distances:

Les Gets is three miles from the larger resort of Morzine which hosts an outdoor pool/recreation area with waterslides etc. and an indoor Ice rink - Les Gets has an outdoor rink! There are numerous local attractions and many more which can be accessed within an hour, e.g. Evian, Thonon, medieval Yvoire, Chamonix and Lake Annecy. There is a fantastic indoor/outdoor (with beach) aqua parc on Lake Geneva (90 min. drive) which is fun for all the family.

Further Details:

The resort of Les Gets is quaint and unspoilt. There are ample restaurants & bars with a wide variety of culinary choices. There's a bowling bar (booking recommended), sports bars with bar football & pool and for the sporty ones, the resort also has tennis courts for use in the summer.

There are some fabulous mountain restaurants including "La Grand Ourse" which is owned and managed by a lovely British family. This is ideal for a last Vin Chaud / Hot Chocolate as it is situated at the top of Mont Chery and you can ski back to the apartment after an exhilarating day.

Les Gets offers vast number of children’s activities usually based by the Town Hall. These include wood cutting, trampolines, bungees, merry-go round, go carts. There is also an adventure park in the woods with rope climbs, zip wire etc. In winter this is transformed into Santas Grotto and there are tours with the Elfs. Hide and watch Santa preparing for his Christmas eve. Quite Magical!!

The resort holds a 'Welcome Meeting' at the base of the slopes on a Monday evenings where vin & chocolat chaud are complementary. The instructors light torches, ascend the mountain and then proceed with a torch-lit decent, this then followed by a spectacular firework display.
