Les Gets is one of my favourite resorts – charming, very French (as opposed to overwhelmed with British skiers), and easily accessed from Geneva. A lot of the chalets are rather pricey but La Ferme de la Liberté offers gorgeously stylish accommodation that is not eye-wateringly expensive. A real find.
Think deep, squidgy sofas, lots of plush velvet, plenty of light from floor to ceiling windows and a stunning, large communal area zoned into three spaces to suit different moods, no less. The whole vibe is stylish, cosy and comfy, with thoughtful extras such as a separate kids TV and playroom, Netflix available for guest use on a Samsung Smart TV, and music systems that can stream your music from your phone. Add to this toasty underfloor heating throughout, as well as a central log burner for extra winter cosiness.
This luxury Portes du Soleil ski chalet can sleep up to 14 people in 5 bedrooms, with four king-sized beds and three adult-sized bunk beds (which can sleep six). All are en suite, with the downstairs double featuring a shower and sink in the room and a shared separate loo outside the room.
Mattresses are award-winning Emma mattresses that are supportive, hypoallergenic and super-comfy, and they are dressed with duck down duvets teamed with 400 count Egyptian cotton bed linen.
La Ferme de la Liberté is a luxury catered or self-catered ski chalet — it is flexible and can offer both. For self-catered guests, it has a fabulous, spacious, open plan kitchen equipped with electric Range cooker with two large, separate fan ovens and six-zone induction hob. There is a giant American-style fridge freezer plus Nespresso machine. The kitchen has sliding double doors which offer views of the garden and forest beyond.
When catered, menus are totally bespoke for guests and a local, qualified chef is brought in to cook for you. Meals are excellent and can compete with the best fully catered chalets.
The chalet has a separate dining room with oak dining table, music system and views of the garden, so dining can be a separate, highly civilised affair.
This luxury Les Gets ski chalet has a sauna inside and a hot tub outside, to help ease the aches and pains of a day on the mountain. There is even a ‘cold tub’ – a wooden water trough, fed by natural spring water, which guests can plunge into after a hot soak. Should they so wish.
Children are most welcome at La Ferme de la Liberté, although toddlers must be supervised because there are steep stairs, a galleried staircase and a steep slope at the edge of the garden. They have their own bunk room with spacious, adult-sized bunks that can sleep six in total. They also have their own separate TV and play room, and a great selection of board games plus DVD player and kids’ DVDs.
The stylishness, the space and the location, in lovely, typically French Les Gets.
It is a little tucked away but the chalet lays on in-resort transport, even for self-catered guests, so that is not a problem.
This luxury Les Gets ski chalet is located on Chemin de la Liberté, a largely flat lane that is snow-cleared so easily accessible on foot or by car, and there is a ski-bus stop at the end of the road. It is 1Km from the village centre, 1km from the Mont Chery lift and 1.5km from the main Chavannes lifts. A private mini-bus takes guests to and from the lifts each morning and evening.
Geneva is just 70-90 minutes away. Airport transfers can be organized for you.
