  • Les Gets - Better than the Caribbean in the summer - Family activities

    04 September 2013
    Having just spent part of the summer in Les Gets, my feeling is that I just have to share some of it with those who have not yet allowed themselves the indulgence of a visit there. Where to start? It's a toughie, I have to say. One of the things that I loved the most and was most impressed by is not only the amount of FAMILY activities, but, that by all accounts and purpose, all ages and stages and needs and wants are catered for in this region. From mountain biking (or cross country) to horse riding, swimming in the mountain lakes, Alpine walking - parapenting – which I did, with my 23 year old daughter, specifically because I am afraid of height's – and I ABSOLUTELY loved it.......
  • Les Gets - Summer - Great time in the pump park in the village

    02 September 2013
    I have really enjoyed myself in the pump park and using the air bag in Les Gets this summer – with my new mountain bike.
    The pump park is not only a great way to practice skills, but is also really good for socialising with other English kids of my age (11 years ). In the daytime, most kids are out on the mountains, but in the evenings, the lifts are closed so most kids go to the pump park and this is a great place to make friends. One of the good things about the pump park is that it is free, but never seems to be too busy.
  • Les Gets - A day of ski on Mont Chery in January - Ski conditions

    When you get to the top of the 'bubble' lifts going up Mont Chery, there is a telescope and amazing views over Les Gets village.
  • Missing the Mountains? - Beautiful holidays in the summer

    13 May 2012
    Les Gets in the summer is the place to relax and unwind whilst savouring the mountain views over a long coffee in the mountain top restaurants. There is plenty for everyone from the coffee lovers who enjoy walking from café to café on the mountain tops to the adrenalin junkie paragliders.
    Don't forget the mountains in Les Gets in the summer months are awash with beauty. Savour the mountain air whilst walking between mountain cafes. Hastings itself is a 20 minute walk up to Les Pleney where you can enjoy coffee and cake overlooking the mountains towards Morzine, from there walk further up Les Chavannes, even all the way to the top, passing various cafes and restaurants along the route!
