Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Les Gets - Les Gets Ski Apartments

Attractive ski and summer apartments, sleeping from 4 to 12

Quality ski apartments in a superb position, close to Les Gets village and the pistes.

Excellent for winter and summer holidays.

These apartments give you the best of both worlds - in the winter put your skis on at the door and ski back at the end of the day, and close to the village centre.

In the summer they are close to the bathing lake, mountain bike trails and all the other alpine activities.

Superb Location: Les Gets and surrounding area: Les Gets is a friendly, bustling village, with wide, sunny slopes finishing directly in the village centre. The mountain scenery is glorious. There are ski and snowboard schools, about 100 shops, 25 restaurants and bars, a disco, bowling and cinema. In the winter try the outdoor ice rink and floodlit skiing. In the summer the filtered bathing lake is 3 minutes level stroll; nearby are many activities for children. Direct access form the apartment to 120 km of maintained walking paths and mountain bike trails. There are world cup mountain bike trails. White water rafting, paragliding and other extreme sports can be arranged. Being so close to the Swiss border, the architecture is mainly pretty wooden chalets. Morzine, traditional farming village turned resort, is only 10 minutes away by car and has an open air Olympic pool with water slides. Excursions possible include Lac Leman and lakeside towns of Evian,Montreaux, Lausanne as well as Annecy, Chamonix and Mont Blanc.

How to get there: Les Gets must be one of the most easily accessible alpine resorts being only an hour from Geneva with flights by Easyjet from Liverpool,East Midlands, Luton, Gatwick and Stansted. Others such as Flybe and BMI baby also fly to Geneva as do British Airways and Swiss. BA also flies to Lyon (2 hrs away)and Ryanair fly to St Etienne, 2.5 hours away. We can arrange minibus transfers from Geneva available from Geneva,usually cheaper than the resort coach, a lot cheaper than Geneva taxis and a lot more convenient. Or hire a car hire from the airport. Motoring from the channel ports, predominantly on the auto-route, takes about 8/10 hours and French petrol and diesel is cheaper than in the UK! The drive from Caen takes about the same time. The TGV train goes to Cluses and coach and taxi transfers are available.

Nice location, but very old/neglected apartment

  • 2 of 5

We stayed for a week in apartment “Joli". Its location is the only good thing about this apartment (though you need to be able to ski blue slopes to get to the village centre). The apartment itself is very old and neglected - the mattresses and duvets are old and stained, the sofa-bed is old and very uncomfortable, frying pan and saucepans are not usable at all (coating is pilling off from them), toilet seat is cracked, and so on. It seems that apartment is only cleaned by people in the end of their holidays and it hasn’t been professionally cleaned for a long time (there was a lot of dust and dirt in the corners). Outside, on the terrace, hasn’t been cleaned as well - it was very dirty with cigarets buts laying around.

In the description the owners write that "Apartments have been recently redecorated and refurbished”, but apart from a new microwave oven and light features in the room we couldn’t see what else was updated in at least last 10 years. I don’t see us coming back to this apartment and definitely wouldn’t recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: I am pleased you liked the location of the apartment. People in the past have described it as the "best position in the resort", and many have asked us to let them know if we are selling!! I am sorry you had problems during your stay, if you had contacted us either while you were in the apartment, or even later, they could have been rectified. We have a manager in Les Gets who cleans and checks the apartments after each stay and any would have come and sorted out many of the problems. We provide you with their telephone number so you can contact them direct if necessary. Although this was an anonymous review, (you did not complain to us even on your return) Home Away have provided me with the date of your stay This was a last minute booking at a greatly reduced price so this may not have given our manager the time to be as thorough as usual in checking the apartment. The apartments are particularly well equipped and everything is checked at the beginning of the season, but pans do get maltreated and if you had let us know you were not happy we would have replaced them while you were there. The"white" goods are all recent, as are the mattresses (which all have protectors). The soft furnishings and bunk bed mattresses were new last year, and duvets and pillows are either laundered or replaced at the beginning of each season. The apartment is regularly redecorated I am sorry you found the sofa bed uncomfortable, as it is a high quality dense foam. We use it ourselves and always get a good nights sleep, but beds are a matter of personal preference. I am sorry and surprised that you would not book the apartment again as the majority of our guests are repeat visitors.

Superb location !

  • 4 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at the Joli apartment March 2008. This is how we rated our stay: Positive points-Absolute superb location. Ski in ski out. Fairly close to town although quite a steep walk back up to apartment if on foot, about one minute drive in car. Apartment very small, but acceptable.Well stocked with appliances & utensils. Good customer service.Negative points-Apartment very basic, kitchen area in need of refurb. Les Gets supermarkets & restaurants very expensive. Overall opinion- Our best ski holiday, fab skiing area, great location, we'll definitely return, although we'd rather pay extra and upgrade to a better apartment. We do recommend 'Superb Locations' and hope to holiday with them next year.

Les Gets is a traditional French village resort in a sunny mountain pass just an hour from Geneva airport, 40 minutes from Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) and 8-10 hours drive from the channel ports. It is part of the huge Portes du Soleil ski area and has wide tree lined pistes right into the heart of the pretty village. Excellent for all abilities. In summer it is an ideal holiday location with a bathing lake, walking, mountain biking, fishing lake and golf. Mountain bikes use these lifts in the summer. Many excursions to Annecy, Chamonix and Mont Blanc, Switzerland and Italy less than 60 minutes drive.

It has an excellent snow record, with lots of sun, and there is direct access to the 650 km of the Portes du Soleil. Superb for all levels of skier/boarder. There are 2 British ski schools and a British crèche/nanny service.

Other Activities: Cross country ski, outdoor skating rink, floodlit skiing, all snow activities,walking, childrens' adventure park, pony club and much else nearby

Golf: Les Gets has a new 18 hole course at 1500m with spectacular views of Mont Blanc,open from May to October. This is only a short drive up the mountain from our apartment or you take the gondola from the village for fantastic views. There are many possibilities for those who like to try different courses, all in magnificent settings, with plenty to occupy non-golfing members of the party. Try Giex, situated between Lac Annecy and Mont Blanc, whilst the course at Chamonix has views of the glacier. The championship course at the spa resort of Evian has views of Lac Leman, whilst Aix-les-Bains offers all year golf. Other courses include Megeve, Flaine and Avoriaz.

Ski: Les Gets has excellent beginners slopes directly in the village and is an intermediates dream with 120 km of well groomed cruising runs on the Les Gets/Morzine lift pass. For adventurous intermediates and advanced skiers, Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area with 650 km of pistes, one of the largest interlinked areas. Snowboarders are well catered for with a snow park on the slopes of Mont Chery and the uplift is mainly chairs! No excruciating drags unless you want to prove something. We recommend a British snowboard instructor as well as the British alpine ski school There four or more French ski/board schools. There are 8 km of circuits for cross country skiers, with fabulous views. Snowshoe walks are popular and as there are plenty of mountain restaurants accessible by telecabine non skiers can join the rest of the party for lunch. Good late season snow record and nearness to high level skiing at Avoriaz, enables skiing early and late in the season.
