Les Gets, France

Les Gets is a village in the French Alps, just over an hour’s drive from Geneva Airport. Les Gets is quieter and more compact than neighbouring Morzine, with an upmarket feel, great restaurants and stylish boutiques. It’s great for a family ski holiday or summer in the mountains.

Les Gets centres around a small high street with a choice of restaurants, bars and a traditional cinema. Les Gets also has a luxurious day spa, a mountain rollercoaster that you can ride in winter and summer, plus a magical light show experience called Alta Lumina. The Chavannes ski lift in the centre of town makes it easy to access the Morzine-Les Gets ski area and offers fantastic opportunities for beginner skiers, including ski play areas for kids. In winter, the ice-skating rink pops up in the centre of the high street and, in summer, you can enjoy a fun water obstacle course on a nearby lake, mountain hikes and bike rides. Our in-resort team lives in the area year-round, so if you have any questions then get in touch and we will be happy to help.

Get To Know Les Gets

Les Gets is located in the French Alps in the Haute-Savoie department of south-eastern France. The village neighbours Morzine and is close to the Switzerland border. Les Gets is about an hour and 10 minutes away by car from Geneva Airport in Switzerland. Lake Geneva is just 40 minutes away.

Les Gets is one of the main resorts in Les Portes du Soleil, an international ski area that straddles the Swiss and French border. This huge ski area links 12 alpine resorts across France and Switzerland.

The nearest airport to Les Gets is Geneva Airport over the border in Switzerland. The transfer time from there is approximately one hour and 10 minutes, depending on weather conditions. Once you book with Hunter Chalets, our concierge team can arrange private or group transfers to your chalet.

An alternative airport is Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport in France. However, please note that the transfer times take around two hours and 30 minutes. We recommend arranging a private transfer, as public transport or coaches are likely to take twice as long!

We have also had guests fly into Chambery, Grenoble, Lyon, Milan and Zurich, though the vast majority of our guests use Geneva Airport as it is the closest to Morzine.

The Les Gets ski lifts officially open on Saturday 16 December 2023 through to Sunday 7 April 2024. Depending on snowfall, the Morzine-Les Gets lift network may open on the weekends before or after these dates to extend the season and this will be confirmed close to these dates.

The Morzine-Les Gets lift network is due to open from 15 June - 15 September 2024 (daily), plus weekend openings between 31 May - 15 June 2024. Mont Chéry cable car is set to open between 22 June to 15 September 2024. The full Portes du Soleil area, linking 12 mountain resorts, will be open between 28 June - 1 September 2024.

Les Gets is great for a ski holiday or summer holiday in the mountains. In winter, head to the centre of the high street where you’ll find an ice-skating rink or catch the Chavannes gondola to explore the Morzine-Les Gets ski area, which includes fun snow play areas for kids. If the weather turns, the high street has a traditional cinema, bowling bar and, just off the main road, a luxurious day spa. To find out more, read our Things to do in Les Gets during winter guide.

Year-round, you jump on the mountain rollercoaster and zip down the mountain or head up to Lac des Ecoles and take a magical walk through the trees at Alta Lumina, a light show following the story of the music maker. In summer, life by the lakes is pretty perfect. There’s a splash play area, watersports and even a flume slide into the lake. You can visit the goats at Lindarets, hike trails with astounding views or take full advantage of Les Gets Bike Park, the biggest bike park in Europe. Find out more with our Things to do in Les Gets during summer guide.

Les Gets is easy to walk around and all of our chalets are very close to the high street. Free buses run around the resort in both seasons and the little eco-train can can take you around Les Gets in both seasons and up to Lac des Ecoles in summer. Many of our chalets have parking, so please ask for our chalet recommendations if you are driving to Les Gets.

In winter, we also offer a 24-hour resort driver service. At any time, call or WhatsApp our driver team and we can pick you up from Les Gets’ bars and restaurants or take you to the ski lifts. Our drivers can take you anywhere in Les Gets or Morzine, as well as to the Ardents and Prodains ski lifts (just outside these resorts). Our 24-hour driver service is included with our catered chalet stays and can be added as an extra cost for guests staying in our self-catered chalets.

Yes! Les Gets is excellent for beginners because the slopes are wide and gentle. The Chavannes bubble lift from the resort makes it easy to get up from the resort and from there, you’ve got Magic Carpet areas and another gentle chairlift that takes you to the plateau.

At the Les Gets plateau, Piste 64 is great for beginners wanting to try their first run after the Magic Carpet. The next best one is a blue run called Violette that goes through the forest and reappears back at the plateau.

The Grand Cry and the Mauve slope are good spots for families with younger children, too. The Mauve trail includes a “fauna” zone with life-size animals and explanatory panels and a “fun ski” zone with ski games. This area is accessible via the ski lift at La Croix or the Grand-Cry.

Reviews From Our Guests

  • Spent a little time in chalets over the years and this time around we decided to up the anti a little. Looked around at a few companies and Hunter Chalets were definitely up there with the best. We decided on Chalet Genepi, a chic looking property and a short distance from the centre of Morzine. In most cases, photographs of a chalet or apartment are taken in such a way to exaggerate the sizes - not so here. The Chalet itself appears fairly new, is large and beautifully appointed. The games room downstairs with pool table, large screen TV, sofa, outdoor hot tub and open plan kitchen (which turned into a bar!) was a great bonus. All the bedrooms were modern with great en suites and the top floor lounge was a great socialising space and easily big enough for our party of ten. The icing on the cake was the in resort driver service and, whilst an additional cost, made the whole holiday so much better with a true 24/7 service, managed by a great team of on-call drivers. All in all a five star experience with a couple of issues quickly resolved. Would definitely consider using Hunter Chalets again.

  • Stayed in Chalet Genepi at the start of March for a week and it was stunning. Fabulous accommodation, comfortable beds, a relaxing hot tub and breath taking views from both balconies. The White Company toiletries were an added bonus - beautiful. The staff could not have been more helpful with everything from baby seats to cots, a high chair and stair gate provided. Make sure to book the resort shuttle / taxi service with Hunter Chalets - the drivers were so so helpful and professional. It was such a special week where we all left feeling rested and pampered. The only question now is, which chalet will we try next ?

  • Wonderful chalet and exceptional service!

    Colleen Jack
  • We have stayed with Hunter Chalets twice now as a large group of adults. We found their service and attention to detail to be fantastic. The chalets we have stayed in have been amazing and Fin and his team have been on hand to help with every detail to make sure our trips were nothing short of perfect.

  • This was our first time in Morzine and as guests of Hunter Chalets. The quality of the chalet and the level of service provided by Hunter Chalets was superb. Everything worked perfectly and we loved the driver service and meal service which could be ordered. We are already booking for the summer

  • Chalet and service was top class. Hunter couldn’t do enough to cater for our needs, even securing a last minute pizza order for 10 people on a Sunday evening. Would highly recommend Hunter and this chalet, and will definitely use again. Thanks Team, amazing experience

  • What an amazing experience with Hunter Chalets. This was our first ever time skiing and the company made it so easy, nothing was too much trouble (even after answering our 2000 questions 🤣) Everyone made us feel special, and the driver service was on another level. The chalet itself was perfect, decorated to such a high standard, it had everything you could wish for on a skiing holiday, from a ski boot room (heated), to an amazing log fire, to a hot tub to relax in after a tiring day. We have certainly caught the "skiing bug" and we would always look to use Hunter Chalets going forward. If we could give them 10 stars we would!!
