We are all looking forward to travel restrictions easing and to being able go on holiday. For a holiday in France you can chose to be by the sea or in the mountains.

We offer you a glimpse of a relaxing stay in the mountains in the charming village of Les Gets. 

The village of Les Gets


Les Gets, in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, is located around one hour by car from Lake Geneva and half an hour from the motorway. The village is known for its mountain bike trails (we host the final of the MTB World Cup at the beginning of July) but also for its many organized family activities, which makes it a perfect destination for families with multiple and sometimes divergent interests ...

In this article, we are not focussing on the sporting activities, but rather on the the well-being and relaxing activities in the village.

Les Gets has an incredible new facility -  Les Sources du Chéry, a spa with an indoor swimming pool. With a total area of ​​1000 m2, it offers a unique alpine ambience, in stone and wood, where you can recharge and also treat yourself to a massage.

Why not contemplate the magnificent brea taking alpine landscapes around Les Gets. We will give only two here. The first is at Mont Caly, which is very easy to access, on foot or by car. At the top, you can admire the Mont Blanc range either in the middle of the day, by doing the small Clarines loop, ideal for families with children or at the end of the day, to watch the sunset while sipping a glass of white wine. cool on the terrace of the restaurant Les Chevrelles.

The second is at the Nauchets belvedere. The site has been designed to accommodate picnic enthusiasts on its 117m2 terrace. It is located at the crossroads of the “Le Tour des Mouilles” hiking trail and the Encape mountain bike trail in Les Chavannes.

Finally, what could be more relaxing than a convivial meal with friends?  Here, however, we will mention only cafe/restaurants: have a little moment of sweetness in the new tea room: the Velvette, the pastries are homemade and it is also a decoration shop, something to delight the taste buds and the eyes. For a healthy lunch, go to Wild Beet, where you can enjoy fresh smoothies and delicious mixed salads, full of nutrients.

All in all, Les Gets is full of small, fun activities. You will easily find an outdoor yoga class to do or why not offer yourself a massage service at home ...
