One of 48 communes classified as a “tourist commune” in the Haute-Savoie department, the village collects a host of labels, demonstrating its vocation as an ideal destination for families: “Famille Plus Montagne”, “Stations villages de charme”, “Stations grands domaines”, “Village de charme”, “Montagne douce”, and finally the “Top of the French Alps” label!

It’s a village with a magical touch that transports you into its fairytale universe all year round. Get ready for a variety of emotionally-charged experiences, where the music can be seen and the light can be heard !

Ski, Sun and Sound

Enjoy all the winter sports. Because it’s ideally situated on a mountain pass, the resort, which spreads out over two slopes, offers a choice of two environments: Mont-Chéry, where you can soak up the sun; and Les Chavannes, where you can reach Morzine and the vast Franco-Swiss Portes du Soleil ski area (120 km of slopes up to 2,000 m altitude). It’s an opportunity to experience unique sensations of pleasure in a dream setting, with the Mont Blanc range as a backdrop…

For teenagers, the resort also offers a Boarder Cross that can host international competitions, ideal for testing your skills as a champion, as well as a Video Park and a magnificent Snowpark with modules for all levels.

For those who dream of a more leisurely stroll, Les Gets offers several Nordic ski itineraries with loops for all technical levels (from green to black).

As if in a child’s dream… In the heart of the sleeping forest and at nightfall, Alta Lumina, an enchanted nocturnal trail, plunges you into an imaginary world, a truly marvelous interactive adventure that will arouse unique emotions in everyone.

All year round, with family or friends, come and take part in the incredible adventure of a music peddler who takes off in his hot-air balloon and travels over the mountains. You’ll be immersed in a unique, enchanting and immersive environment, where the story is told poetically through light, images in all their forms, scenography and interactivity.

This concept, never before seen in a European resort, takes advantage of the natural beauty of the site and sublimates it with a play of light.

You won’t be outdone on the cultural front, either, with the Rock the Pistes festival, the first spring music festival to take place in the third week of March, featuring French and international rock artists. The event is held directly on the slopes for concerts, so you can get there… on skis!

A Summer for all tastes

In summer, the village becomes a Mecca for outdoor activities, with its many play and sports areas. Fun and relaxation guaranteed!

In summer, let your desires for escape take over.

Golf lovers. Practice your swing facing Mont Blanc at Les Gets eco-golf course, an environmental pioneer.

With Europe’s largest Bike Park and a network of trails almost unrivalled in France (128 km of marked trails), the village of Les Gets is also a paradise for downhill and enduro mountain bikers. No wonder Les Gets has become one of the world’s leading mountain bike resorts.

For hikers and nature lovers, the Chablais massif, with its UNESCO World Geopark, offers a wealth of possibilities for discovering new landscapes and breathing fresh air. It’s an ideal playground for hiking (800 km of marked trails) and all your outdoor activities: cycling, trail biking, trekking through fir forests, peaks, high-altitude lakes and alpine meadows.

Mountains are synonymous with gastronomy… Lovers will be spoilt for choice in these lands, where raclette comes in protected brand varieties (Savoie raclette and Valais raclette) and Abondance cheese smells of alpine pastures. A whole range of gourmet flavors will brighten up your vacation: apple mafatan, polenta, diots in white wine, raclette fondue, mushroom cassolettes, rissoles and, of course, the famous Berthoud, a typical Chablais dish made with Abondance cheese and white wine.

Last but not least, don’t miss the most beautiful panorama of the Mont Blanc range visible by confronting your sense of vertigo from the Pas dans le Vide platform. 

Located at the top of the Ranfoilly chairlift, this 27 m2 eagle’s nest reveals one of the most grandiose views in the Portes du Soleil area.
