    13 November 2011
    Ben and Morven have just returned from Les Gets, to the UK, they have been having 3 hours of French lessons each day, with Lost in Translation and working on Hastings and other Chalets in the rest of their time.

  • Les Gets - White water rafting - Pictures

    30 June 2011
    These are pictures taken earlier this week when our Chalet Manager, Alex, went whitewater rafting with our friends at
    frogsrafting - you can see they all had a great time - they were on the Giffre River in Samoens. It was a very hot day and to be in the cool water was very refreshing.
  • Les Gets - Information about travelling by car from the UK to Les Gets

    26 June 2011
    We have just found a couple of excellent web sites for planning your car journey from the UK to Les Gets.
    We all know of the delays in queuing to pay tolls on the motorways - there is even a special deal on buying the electronic automatic payment 'dongles' for and these are good value if you travel in France just a couple of times a year. More details here.

  • Les Gets - Getting ready for the summer season - accommodation

    14 June 2011
    ur Chalet manager, Alex, arrived mid last week and we spend a few days starting work, once the snow has melted, gardens in the Alps seem to grow at about three times the rate of English gardens and if you are not careful, there is a covering of dandelions everywhere. We re-seeded parts of the lawn - as parts had not survived well after the snow, planted the rockery mowed lawns and of course weeded. We also took the Wendy house to Chalet Au Gre du Temps - where a family is staying for 7 weeks, it must have looked quite amusing, transporting this down the Chavannes Road - balanced on a wheel-barrow on one side and Alex holding up the other.
  • Les Gets - Critérium du Dauphiné in Les Gets

    12 June 2011
    Yesterday we saw a stage of the Criterium du Dauphine in Les Gets, Bradley Wiggins was in the centre and was clearly in the lead. The event was quite low key compared with the TdF and other events in Les Gets
  • Les Gets - 70cm more snow in the village

    30 May 2011
    The snow is absolutely amazing at the moment, and a further 70cm snow is forecast for Les Gets over the next three days. Whilst this is excellent for skiing, and bodes well for the rest of the season, the amount of snow is causing havoc with the roads. We hardly ever see Land Rover Defenders with snow chains, but over the past few days, we have seen quite a few!
    Normally, when this is this much snow at the start of the season, it forms a good base for a few months, so whatever happens with the weather, we usually have reasonable snow for the season.
  • Les Gets - Excellent snow on the slopes

    18 March 2011
    Ben is doing training in the Giant Slolom at the moment, he was on the BASI slalom course yesterday, on the Les Gets pistes and said they were perfect. In the village the weather was not great at all, and this meant that some people did not go out, but on the slopes he said conditions were perfect - for race training.
  • Les Gets - Clients report that Les Gets slopes are excellent

    13 March 2011

  • Les Gets - Afternoon ski - Vin chaud at the La Fys Lift

    04 March 2011
    Many people say the best skiing is first thing in the morning before the droves get out...
    but for me yesterday the best was after 3.30 until the lifts closed. Suddenly a brightish day brightened and everything became golden.
