A DAY IN LES GETS
From when you wake up until the fireworks burst overhead at 7pm on a Monday evening, here you can find what to expect from a “normal” day at Chalet Perdu in Les Gets.
Les Gets is a truly magical place and if you have never been to the Alps you will be totally blown away by the atmosphere, the mountain air and the scenery – imagine standing up on a snowy mountain and looking across at Mont Blanc and the Alps unfolding in front of you in one direction and looking down to Lake Geneva to the other, although the locals say that when you can see the lake it’s a sign of severe weather approaching. The restaurants on the mountain are simply beautiful, with their log fires, hot wine, crepes, fabulous barbeque lunches and even homemade macaroons along with morning champagne.
8am Breakfast is served at 8am – eggs, cereal, toast, croissant, fruit, yogurt and fruit juice
9am Lessons start at 9am for 2.5 hours. The lift opens at 8.30am – you can look into it from the balcony or while having breakfast. The lift pass give free transport around the village on the little train along with free ice-skating – perfect for the afternoons.
12-2pm The mountain and village restaurants open for lunch, book in advance for the best tables and for large family groups. All restaurants offer a children’s ski menu.
4-6pm After cake and hot chocolate at the chalet, the ice rink provides many activities provided by Les Gets especially for the little ones which includes musicians, ice festivals, dancing on ice and games to play. The ice rink is just 300m from Chalet Perdu.
