Expert guide to Les Gets
For a small resort, Les Gets has good selection of comfortable hotels, from two- to four-star. There’s also a fair choice of apartment accommodation, however there are surprisingly few catered chalets run by UK tour operators.
The small, 20-room Christiania is a traditional hotel with wooden décor at the foot of the slopes, just 50m from the main lifts. Scottish-owned and staffed by British workers it has comfortable bedrooms, a bar-lounge area with log fire, children’s play room, sauna and two outdoor hot tubs.
At the foot of the slopes and lifts, the lovely four-star Hotel Marmotte started life in 1936. Now luxuriously renovated, it has 63 rooms and suites, two bars, three restaurants and two children’s games rooms. The spa includes a large indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room, plus 10 treatment rooms and a herbal infusion room.
Book it: From £1,209 with Crystal.
