Les Gets is a ski resort in the Haute-Savoie region of the Alps, set in the eastern part of France. It boasts an ideal location between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, making it particularly easy to access. And with direct access to the Portes du Soleil ski area, it’s a prime location to live or holiday if you like to spend the snowy months skiing, snowboarding or taking part in adventurous outdoor sports. Plus, with Switzerland being so close, you can head across the border whenever you like. These features and more make Les Gets such a sought-after destination by French and international clientele.
Getting to Les Gets
If you’ll be traveling to your new Les Gets property on a regular basis – maybe it’s your holiday home, or you want to rent it out now and then during the year – you’ll be pleased to know it’s very easy to get to and from. The A40 motorway is only 25 kilometres away if you’re driving. The Cluses train station is a bit closer at 22 kilometres, and if you’ll be flying, you’re only a little over an hour’s drive from Geneva International Airport.
Getting around Les Gets is as easy as getting to it, and you don’t need a vehicle to explore the area thanks to its public transport (it’s also very easy to walk around the area as well). And whether you’re here in the winter, summer or all year long, you’ll want to be out and about because there’s so much to do.
Things To Do in Les Gets
In the wintertime, in addition to regular skiing and snowboarding, there’s everything from cross-country and freestyle skiing to hiking, geocaching and other mountain activities. Take the kids to a play area or out for a day of snowmobiling, then spend an afternoon relaxing at a spa or yoga studio. There’s also bowling, ice skating and paragliding, plus low-key places to visit like museums and farms.
Once the warmer summer months are here, you can replace your skis with wheels and hit the road or a park on your bike. You can also go on walks or climbing at various altitudes; take up archery, fishing, horseback riding or tennis; or go caving or canyoning. To cool off on especially hot days, there are both calm lakes and exciting water parks, as well as heart-pumping activities like rafting and canoeing.
