Les Gets TO - N Joly

Les Gets is a pretty village in Haute Savoie, part of the Portes du Soleil, offering a warm welcome both winter and summer.

Just 6km from Morzine, Les Gets is linked to it's larger neighbour by the Pleney lifts.

It is a traditional dairy-farming village dating from the 12th century and it has retained a relaxed and family-orientated feel.

Ski holidays in Les Gets:

Les Gets' ski area is on the slopes on both sides of the valley. As it is a lower resort much of the slopes are grass covered in the summer - meaning that skiing can take place on lesser snow depths than on higher altitude rocky slopes.
