The chalet is one of the best located in the resort and is very well furnished and equipped. You can walk 200 yards and then ski on a blue run on the Chavannes mountain slope to start or end your day's skiing without using your car. Accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms plus a mezzanine bedroom area, an open plan living room / kitchen, second living room / TV lounge, 2 Bathroom/Shower-rooms, and 2 seperate WC.s. The shower-room has an instant electric shower so you should never be the one who gets left with no hot water! Bedrooms one and two have double beds, the mezzanine bedroom area has 2 single beds, and bedroom four has 2 single beds and 2 bunk- beds. A continuous balcony runs around 3 sides of the chalet offering panoramic views over the ski slopes and village. There is a garage and ski-storage facilities on the ground floor and parking area outside. We are a short distance from the main ski schools and the village centre is 15 minutes walk down the road. There is also a free ski-bus that stops 30yds from the chalet to take you up or down to the skilifts or village.
Les Gets is as little as 7 hours drive from Calais, all on motorways except for the last 25 miles or one hour's drive from Geneva Airport. It is part of the largest international linked ski area in the world with 420 miles of pistes spread across 12 linked resorts. The area is suitable for all levels of skiers including beginners.

Just a few comments from previous guests:
- From Mrs Thomas at Christmas 99:- "I just wanted to let you know that we had a great Christmas while staying in the chalet at Les Gets. The chalet was clean and welcoming. We really enjoyed the skiing and the British Ski school were great. The children are now 'experts' and are fearless on the slopes, while us adults are a little more cautious."
- From Mr & Mrs Clinch in Feb 2000:- "Dear Stewart, THANK YOU. We had a really great time in Les Gets. We thought La Felire was super.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the chalet to anyone and we have put it, and Les Gets, at the top of our list of favourites for a return visit"

A recommended route is Calais-A26-Reims-(A4)-A26-Troyes-A5-A31-Dijon-A39-(via Dole)-Bourg en Bresse-A40-(towards Chamonix) but get off motorway at Cluses, head for Taninges and then Les Gets.
If you live in the western half of England and Wales, you might consider a relaxing overnight ferry crossing from Portsmouth to Le Havre. Sleeping cabins cost about £30 to £40 extra for 2 to 4 berths. From Le Havre the distance is less, about 490 miles to Les Gets. A recommended route would be Le Havre-N15-A131(use Pont de Tancarville)-A13-* the Peripherique *-A6 (past Nemours, Auxerre, Beaune) then -Macon-A40-and the D902 to Les Gets.
