An authentic and welcoming village, Les Gets is a true dual-season resort with access to one of the largest ski domains in the world and with a lively summer season
Les Gets is constantly improving its offerings on and off the slopes to help it better compete with its fellow siblings in Les Portes du Soleil. For the 2019/20 ski season, Les Gets opened two new pistes, a dog sledging experience for children and Les Sources du Chéry, a chic wellness centre with a 1,000 sqm adults-only spa and fun children’s area.
Some €7m has been invested in improving the resort’s snowmaking capabilities and the new facilities have upped snow coverage from 35% to nearly 50% for the 2019/20 ski season. Once the project is complete, snow coverage will reach 75%, possibly resulting in an increase in demand for property for sale in Les Gets.
Les Gets opened its first chair lift back in 1938 and welcomed the first Ecole du Ski Français soon after in 1940. Since the opening of the Mont Chery lift in 1954, the ski resort has steadily grown and now boasts 47 lifts.
However, the origin of the village stems back to the 12th century and before Les Gets evolved into the popular ski resort it is today, it was a dairy farm community. For a taste of what life was like back then head to La Fruitière des Perrières, a fromagerie with a restaurant that is more than 100 years old.
Well-deserving of its Famille Montagne Plus label, Les Gets is a fantastic resort for families looking for property for sale in Les Gets as it boasts plenty of activities to keep little ones amused such as the Grand Cry Territory, a fun themed ski area, and the Milka slope.
Novice skiers should check out the nursery runs near the village centre and the Mappys area in the Chavannes area which has four gentle runs with a snow cable and rope to help new skiers practise. There are also several ski and snowboarding schools where you can attend group lessons or one-to-one sessions. Seasoned skiers will enjoy the steep black runs of Mont Chéry and the Yeti mogul field.
Les Gets offers plenty of activities away from the slopes too. In the village centre, you will find an outdoor ice rink, a cinema, a bowling alley as well as plenty of restaurants and a handful of bars. There are also several spas for unwinding and resting ski-weary legs including the new Les Sources du Chéry spa.
