Family holiday with friends in Les Gets August 2000

The apartment

For a week we stayed in an apartment in Les Gets. Flying into Geneva before hiring cars & driving into France to this Alpine resort.

Les Gets is an old alpine village which became a famous ski resort after the construction of its first skilift in 1936. Idealy situated at an altitude of 1200m at the bottom of the slopes, the ski resort of Les Gets has a very good reputation for its skiing and is part of the huge "Portes du Soleil" skiing area with 650 km of slopes between France and Switzerland. During the summer, it is possible to pursue many activities in the area, including walking, mountain biking and rafting. The area is also excellent for site seeing and excursions to Chamonix, Lake Geneva or to Switzerland and Italy which are nearby.
