A stone’s throw from Morzine in the heart of the French/Swiss Portes du Soleil ski area, Les Gets is a lovely village with a relaxed atmosphere and inherent charm. Its compact nature makes it a popular choice for families - it has a 'P'tits Montagnards' award for childcare. Although the village is slightly higher than Morzine, at an altitude of 1000m snow-sure conditions down to the village cannot always be guaranteed. It does however have copious snow cannons to replenish the pistes when needed and the runs down to the village on the Chavannes side are kept well topped up.
Mainly motorway from Geneva Airport and usually done in just over an hour.
As it is perhaps lesser known that the neighbouring resorts of Morzine & Avoriaz it benefits from quieter slopes, with a variety of beginner and intermediate skiing, with easy access to the steeper slopes further afield.
Its location opposite the Mont Blanc massif also attracts summer visitors for hiking, biking, pony trekking and aerial sports.
Slope-side areas such as Gibannaz, Chavannes and La Turche are popular choices for buyers, owners sacrificing promixity to the resort for ski-in/ski-out convenience. Down in the resort centre, property is more limited to apartments. New development continues to expand the resort down to Perrieres with its new lift. On the Mont Chery side there are still opportunities to buy traditional farms, or property on more spacious plots, and the feel is more rural.
