The chalet was originally built, to our design, in the early 1990’s and was fully refitted and renovated in 2009, with refined style and sophistication. The interior is extremely spacious and we have furnished with your every comfort in mind. There are now 10 beds in 4 twin or double, en suite, bedrooms, two of which have extra beds. All the bedrooms are on the top floor however, downstairs, the games room can also be used as an additional double bedroom and there is an additional shower room. The rest of the first floor comprises a large living room with TV; dining area with a table which can sit up to 12; a practically designed kitchen; and a large well equipped TV (2nd) /games room. Large picture windows lead out from the living room to a balcony from which you can enjoy our spectacular views. There are hardwood tables and chairs for 'al fresco' dining in the summer, together with a barbecue and parasol. The outdoor hot tub/jacuzzi can be accessed from both the balcony and the games room.
Summer: we subscribe to the Portes du Soleil Multipass scheme. http://en.lesgets.com/kids-family/multipass.html
Skiing: In winter, as well as skiing and snowboarding, there are ice skating and snow shoeing. Les Gets is part of the immense Portes du Soleil ski area and has an excellent snow record. Plenty of ski schools provide excellent tuition in a variety of languages and make the resort extremely attractive to families.
Golf: Les Gets has an 18 hole golf course. In the heart of the Portes du Soleil, in wooded surroundings, the Les Gets Golf course has each hole named after the nearby peaks: with Mont Blanc or the 14th hole being the most impressive of this line up.
The chalet is serviced by a FREE navette (A) which runs every 30 mins in the winter and every hour in the summer, 150 m from us
Although not in the centre of town we have a fabulous position with superb views in a safe peaceful environment.

Wow, what an amazing chalet !!
We have just returned from the most fantastic week staying at Chalet Tressud. The chalet more than exceeded our expectations and was so warm, welcoming and comfortable with a real home from home atmosphere. As promised on their website the fridge was fully stocked with all the essentials, the beds really comfortable and the fully ensuite bathrooms are beautiful. The kitchen is really well equipped with plenty of pots, pans, cutlery,scales etc and again as promised our bread was delivered promptly every morning. The tv room was a bonus with a very comprehensive DVD library which the kids (and adults!!) loved and the hot tub was sheer luxury after a days skiing, especially with robes, slippers and towels provided.
The flexi catering concept is brilliant. We opted for Package D and chose our meals from menus that Jo had emailed to us. The food was delicious and served at the time we had chosen or left in our fridge to reheat on our return from the slopes, along with the fire made up ready to light and a home made cake on the table.
We were a group of 7 initially with an 8th person joining us mid week. Again this was no problem and even when the taxi had difficulty finding the chalet that night (it was snowing very heavily) Jo's husband Peter went off in search and duly returned with our friend. I would add however, that we had no problem finding the chalet and the sat nav co-ordinates provided on their website took us straight to the door and accurately estimated the journey time and toll costs from Calais.
We didn't use the ski bus as we drove down to the village each morning and as advised by Jo managed to park for free right next to the ski school meeting point every day. Our 6 and 13 year old children had lessons with ESF and as it was fairly quiet that week the group sizes were small and both progressed far more than we could have wished for which was great.
We have been skiing for over 15 years and this was without doubt the best chalet we have stayed in and Les Gets itself is a gem.
A huge thank you from all of us to Jo, Peter, George and Marmite for all your help and hard work into making our holiday so enjoyable. We will be back!!!
Thank you both for such lovely comments.
Wonderful chalet, fabulous holiday
We stayed for 7 days at the beginning of February this year, and had the most amazing holiday. Joanna was a great host, and we very much enjoyed our flexi-catering evenings with her wonderful cooking. And the cakes.......... heavenly. The portions were huge, so if you get hungry after skiing this is definitely a must.
The chalet is very well-equipped and it was lovely to relax in the hot-tub after a day of skiing with a glass (plastic) of prosecco whilst it snowed. All 4 bedrooms were spacious, with good clothes storage, all ensuite with endless hot water. We really have no complaints and are definitely considering a return next year. The living space was prefect for our 2 families to enjoy and it was lovely to light the fire and relax on the sofas whilst watching the snow-ploughs get to work in the ski-runs across the valley.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. Give Marmite a big hug from us all. Harrison so enjoyed playing in the snow with him.
This was our 3rd trip to Les Gets and it was by far the best. A fantastic chalet, very warm and cosy, the beds were so comfortable. We choose option B and had two great meals and cakes. The hot tub proved very popular with everyone. I would definately return to this chalet if we go to Les Gets in the future.
Seven of us stayed in this great chalet. The chalet is very well looked after. Nice bedrooms with good beds. Attractive bathrooms, not big but more than adequate with plenty of hot water. The jacuzzi was used every day. Lovely to lie back surrounded by fresh snow and enjoy the beautiful view. The owners Peter and Joanne were very friendly and helpful. Kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of cutlery, glasswork and crockery. Only one criticism, it would have been good to have more than just one large saucepan, but we managed. We mainly used our own cars but two in the party made use of the bus on a couple of occasions and found the service convenient and within easy walking distance. All in all a great chalet which I would certainly recommend.
Luxury Chalet - Les Gets,
6 of us stayed at this luxury house, Chalet Tressud. The house is immaculate, contemporary, spacious - each bedroom has its own en-suite facilities. The house is 1.5 km from town. Les Gets is briilliant. We opted for the part catered solution, enjoying both the luxury of going out and staying in......we highly recommend it!!
A truly wonderful chalet in a beautiful location
This truly wonderful and well appointed chalet far exceeded our expectations. The hosts' careful attention to every detail made for a very comfortable stay and we would certainly like to return again. We couldn't think of anything that hadn't been provided and the bath robes, towels and beds/bedding were all very luxurious. The separate TV room and DVD collection were a great hit with the kids (as was the hot tub) and the sitting room, with the lovely fireplace and great views, was a great hit with the adults. The chalet is close to the very attractive resort of Les Gets and also very accessible to the other resorts in the area. The hosts were very helpful in advising us where to get the best ski hire deals.
Set at 1200m altitude you are sure to be charmed by the town's traditional mountain village atmosphere and Savoyard wood and stone chalet architecture: no modern appartment blocks here. Les Gets dates back to the 11th century and the name Gets comes from the ancient French word 'jets' - meaning the gaps in the trees down which wood was brought. The wooded lower slopes and the high mountain scenery with views of Mont Blanc and surrounding peaks are breathtaking. An excellent family resort, Les Gets offers activities for everyone. In summer, there is an 18-hole golf course, a swimming lake, miles & miles of walking and mountain bike paths, and a commando-style, treetop Adventure Park. Les Gets is recognised as a world leading centre for mountain biking and in 2004 was host to to the world championships. In winter, as well as skiing and snowboarding, there is ice skating and snow shoeing. Les Gets is a part of the immense Portes du Soleil ski area and has an excellent snow record.
