Detached chalet in a quiet cul–de–sac on the Chavannes Road. 10 min easy walk to the main piste for biking or skiing, 13 min walk to the Lac, restaurant and children's play area, 15 min walk into town.

Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms (2 King and 1 Twin) 2 of which have built–in cupboards and access to the west–facing balcony with views across towards the Mt Chéry. There is a bathroom with shower over the bath, separate shower room and separate WC on this level.

About Vicky Kirkland

We live in Perthshire and have stayed in Les Gets for many years both summer and winter. Both of our children learnt to ski here and fall off their mountain bikes with style here! The skiing and mountain biking are absolutely fantastic and we found ourselves coming back year after year. This led us to take the plunge and buy a chalet. We use it ourselves out of season but in the ski and summer seasons it is run as a business with professional changeover staff. You can expect a high level of accommodation and service and we are available throughout your stay for advice on any aspect of your holiday. We aren't tour guides but we do know the area well.

Vicky Kirkland purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Vicky Kirkland chose Portes du Soleil

Les Gets has all the facilities of a modern ski and mountain bike resort but still retains it's mountain village charm.

Everyone is friendly and even in the busiest weeks you can always find a quiet spot.

Exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

The chalet is exactly as pictured and described. We had a lovely holiday even though the snow conditions were not ideal. The log burner is superb and creates a lovely ambience for cosy evenings after a day on the slopes. The location is exactly as described providing easy access to all amenities. The restaurants and bars in Les Gets are very helpful arranging the Navette Nocturne or even their own transport to get you home safely.

Customer service was excellent with great instructions, easy access and personalised service. We will definitely book this chalet again.

Many thanks.

Un super endroit pour profiter des Gets !

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 3 couples avec deux enfants en bas âge, et le chalet était parfait niveau taille (chambre assez grandes pour mettre des lits parapluie).

Le chalet est bien placé : pas trop loin du centre ville (on y est allé à pied en descente, et en navette pour remonter ou à pied certains jours), pas très loin des pistes (bon, pas de neige lorsque nous y étions, mais il y a un accès à une piste pricipale à 300m). Avec une vue magnifique sur le massif d'en face par une grande baie vitrée.

Le chalet est top. Plein de petites attentions niveau déco, tout en bois à l'étage, les meubles, ustensiles de cuisine, canapés, literies, etc. sont de qualité. Il y a de tout quand on arrive le soir tard (papier Q, huile sel, thé, etc.). Il y a pas mal de bouquins et DVD, mais en anglais car les proprios sont anglais, une box orange pour le wifi, etc. Rien ne manque.

Il y a un grand garage pour mettre VTT l'été et skis l'hiver (bon, on avait les deux vu le manque de neige...), une buanderie, une belle terrasse, du bois pour le poil, etc.. On peut garer deux ou trois voitures sans problème contre le chalet.

Bref, on a vraiment apprécié notre séjour dans ce beau chalet, et on y reviendra volontier pour skier ou pour faire du VTT. Les Gets ont l'air bien investis dans le VTT, et c'est assez rare pour le souligner (une remontée était ouverte aux VTT vu le manque de neige).

Ah oui, en plus j'ai eu un très bon contact (par mail uniquement) avec Vicky, la propritétaire des lieux qui est attentionnée et semble vraiement concernée par le fait que l'on se sente bien dans son chalet.

Donc je recommande tout simplement avec 5 étoiles.

The chalet was fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth time visiting les gets and Les Mures was our best chalet yet. The chalet had everything we required, both for children and adults. We have never been in the summer but next year are seriously thinking about it.

excellent chalet

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described. It is spacious and very well maintained. The beds are extremely comfortable with lovely linen. Towels are also supplied and end of stay cleaning is included which is a real bonus. The chalet has a very warm and welcome feel and the attention to detail is excellent. Customer service was excellent throughout booking and during our stay. Les Gets is a lovely charming village and we would definitely recommend both the property and the resort.
