Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday chalet in Portes du Soleil area - Chalet Ruisseau

6 Bedroom Ski-in Ski-out Chalet in Les Gets

Chalet Ruisseau is a luxury ski in-ski out self catered chalet offering modern and spacious accommodation. It is built over three floors and set into the hillside, close to the centre of Les Gets.

The spacious living area and kitchen, heated by a beautiful centre-piece log fire, offers a warm and luxurious surrounding for relaxation after a hard day on the slopes- whether you wish to watch TV, play cards or just sit and talk.

With a large dining table and open-plan kitchen, fully kitted out with all the modern appliances, this wonderful space acts as the focal point of the chalet and gives it a brilliant atmosphere, particularly with a large party. Chalet Ruisseau features a fully equipped kitchen adjacent to an open plan living and dining area, perfect for entertaining groups of people.

Chalet Ruisseau consists of 6 Double Bedrooms.

For parties of 10+ we often suggest that the youngest sleep in our brand new ensuite ground floor room with bunk bed.

With Garage boasting a heated boot rack and ample storage for ski's and jackets etc it is the perfect place to set out from in the morning and return to in the evening.

The Main slope into Les Gets, and the start of most ski schools is merely a short ski away and the town itself no more than a 15 minute walk, with quicker routes down depending on the weather and footwear!

We would love for you to come and stay and enjoy our property.

Frederick Farmer purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Frederick Farmer chose Portes du Soleil area

The Chalet was the perfect opportunity for our family to ensure our continued enjoyment of skiing.

Purchased when Les Gets was in its infancy of popularity the resort has now grown dramatically with improved infrastructure and is now renowned as one of the worlds best family ski resorts.

Both ourselves and our guests have now been able to enjoy Chalet Ruisseau for the past 7 years.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet Ruisseau is perfectly located boasting some of the best access to the main pistes of Les Gets, over a small walk bridge and through a nice clearing in the trees the chalet can be reach the main slope into Les Gets in the morning and be reached in the afternoon.

The Central Log Fire in the open plan Kitchen & Living space also provides a fantastic centre piece for the chalets social atmosphere.

Perfect Family Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, Les Gets is a mere hour away from Geneva by transfer and the Chalet itself within walking distance to the town centre.

Our kids’, 8 and 11 could easily ski from the chalet to ski school each morning and we’d pick them up for lunch, with some fantastic recommendations passed on by Freddie. 

We had a wonderful time and have already booked for next year. Great value for money can't wait to come back!

Fantastic Chalet, Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year and loved it so much we booked to return straight away. It was already a lovely chalet and the work they have done to extend it over the summer has made it even better. Sadly the dates we need for next year aren't available, otherwise we would be booking it again now. Would recommend it to anyone.

very spacious and cosy chalet

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Chalet Ruisseau! We were in Les Gets several times before but the 1st time in a private chalet just for our group. Our experience was that the quality-price balance is the best we ever had. The chalet is situated close to the slopes (put on your skis just above the chalet, and in 1 minute you are on the slopes!). The centre of the village can be reached via the slopes (5-min walk). The chalet is very spacious with a large kitchen and living room and very cosy sleeping rooms. Very nice is the large garage with all necessary equipment to put away your skis. Owner is reliable and can easily be reached via phone/sms/e-mail!

Chalet Ruisseau, Les Gets

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and tidy on arrival, and is well equipped with boot room / dryer, sauna, real fire, wifi etc. The manager's local agent popped in on our first night to check all was OK, and was easily contactable during the week for any queries or issues that came up. The ski in / ski out option is extremely useful, albeit not too easy for less experienced skiers (although even if you have to take your skis off, it's only a short walk). The town centre is a long-ish (15 or 20 mins) walk or short drive away, and has all the amenities that you would expect of an alpine ski resort. All in all, a perfect chalet for a family-friendly skiing holiday. The fact that this was our fifth year in a row at Chalet Ruisseau should speak for itself!

Lovely chalet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Chalet Ruisseau. It was really spacious, was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. The location was great, with the ski bus stopping at the end of the road if required. Whilst we were there ski-in/ski-out was just about do-able for us and the kids, but under better snow conditions it would have been easy. All in all a lovely chalet and we are re-booking for next year.
