Les Gets
Sleeps: 8 + 6

 

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.

LOCATION

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.

GETTING THERE

Geneva is just 70-90 minutes away. Airport transfers can be organized for you.

EXTRAS

La Ferme de la Liberté comes with its own minibus to transfer guests to and from the slopes morning and evening — even when let on a self-catered basis, which is rare. If you book skis with the chalet’s recommended supplier (for which you get a discount), you can also leave your skis and boots there every day, by the main Chavannes lift.

MY TOP TIP

Don’t miss lunch at Chez Nannon (just on the left at the top of Tronc Express chairlift). It is a beautiful, traditional alpine chalet, justly renowned for its ‘patate chaude au reblochon’ (a delicious tartiflette made in a frying pan) or its amazing cote de boeuf, cooked in an old stone oven.

Le Vaffieu is best for hot chocolate (with kirsch or rhum!) or try the excellent crepes at L’Atray des Neiges.

As for the skiing, don’t miss the red Arnica run on the Ranfoilly chairlift or, if with children, the blue Cyclamen which goes back to the village avoiding the main, busy home run.

GUESTBOOK

The chalet only opened for two weeks in 2019-2020 so no guestbook quotes as yet.

Remember, I have visited all the chalets we feature so can give you totally unbiased, independent advice on all of them. The prices I quote are also the list prices quoted by the chalets themselves, so there is no advantage in going to the chalets direct.
