Overview

About the property

Great apartment, within touching distance of the piste

Haute-Savoie is a beautiful Alpine region with magnificent mountain ranges and stunning lakes. In the winter you can stay in this lovely ski resort and enjoy an array of winter sports. During the summer the snow melts, the sun shines and the region is the perfect destination for walking, climbing, paragliding and mountain biking - just wonderful all year round. Our apartment in Les Gets has been recently refurbished to a high standard and would suit couples and small families and has a great view over the slopes. The kitchen and bathroom have been completely replaced and now offers a stylish and contemporary stay to those wanting a little luxury on their holiday. We are situated at the foot of the mountains - just minutes from the slope and a high speed chairlift and the pretty town of Les Gets is a 10-minute stroll away. Reasons we love it here? It’s a perfect getaway! Just 8 hours drive from Calais and 50 minutes from Geneva Airport. New for 2015/16 winter season: Wifi. Any questions please feel to ask.

About David Harding and Bar Huberman

Mad about the mountains (just ask our friends) we have been regular winter holiday makers to the French Alps for over 15 years; we have also recently discovered that the Alps are just as good a summer vacation, having enjoyed extensive walks, flying down the mountain on our bikes or just relaxing by the local lakes.

We have been living in Brighton & Hove for the last 7 years and we have a great love of the outdoors, whether that be chilling on the beach, walking or cycling on the south downs, or just finding that perfect beer garden for a lazy drink and meeting up with good friends.

It has always been a dream of ours to one day own an apartment in the Alps.

David Harding and Bar Huberman purchased this apartment in 2013

Why David Harding and Bar Huberman chose Portes du Soleil area

Key to our search was an area with all-year appeal and a good local community with all of the amenities. We researched hard (if holidays count as work) and eventually decided on the Portes du Soleil. We couldn’t help but fall in love with the area of Les Gets, this apartment’s envious location just steps from the piste and the endless opportunities for having fun and relaxing.

The skiing here is fantastic; not only do you have immediate access to both the Les Gets and Morzine valleys, you can also easily venture out and explore the remainder of the 650km of piste by simply jumping on the reliable free shuttle bus which stops 100m from the apartment building. A week just isn’t long enough to explore this magical mountain, but that’s okay, you will always be welcome to book with us again!!

What makes this apartment unique

Call us lazy but we don’t enjoy having to walk too far on an action-packed ski holiday - once you click out of those bindings you shouldn’t have to do anything other than relax! The property is in a perfect location for anyone like us that just wants to get up and get going. The apartment’s location means that you can miss the morning shove which tends to occur on the main lifts in the centre of the village. By jumping on the Perrieres high-speed lift you will be skiing your second or third run while most watch on enviously from the lift queue below!

The traditional feel of Les Gets and the lovely choice of restaurants and pubs give us lots to do when not skiing! In the summer the atmosphere is just as good with great walking, mountain biking and a fabulous golf course.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say a quick thank you, we had a wonderful week in your apartment in Les Gets. The place is really warm and cosy and so comfortable. The ski locker and 'the cave' are super handy too and what a location! We walked everywhere. My friends had rented places in Les Gets before, and said this was the best for the price, spacious and really comfy. Marie Jan 2011

Just wanted to let you know that things are going brilliantly here in Les Gets. We love your apartment and have had some fresh snow! The Radices.

Thanks we had a great holiday and the apartment was perfect for us! The Ferns.

Lovely lovely apartment, had everything we needed, and a really cost feel. Thank you for being so accommodating about us arriving early and leaving late. We loved our stay and hope to return soon. Jo & Lee.

Great apartment- clean, comfortable & well equipped. Had a fun couple of days. All ideal for a short break.........only an hour from Chamonix if you fancy some extreme skiing! Will be back! S

Fab Apartment

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here during Feb half term with my two young sons and we were very pleased with our choice. There are great views of the slopes directly opposite, the bus stop is really close by or if you choose the short walk up to Les Gets its a good warm up before you put your skiis on for a day on the slopes. The store room directly opposite the apartment provides extra space for your ski gear. The beds are very comfortable and the apartment is very cosy after a long day on the slopes. The information provided by the owners was very helpful and the english speaking taxi company Getaway Vans was a blessing as we had friends in Morzine. I would make only one recommendation and that's to have wifi access. Thanks for letting us stay - jon, george and Charles.

Cosy appartment

  • 4 of 5

My son and I really enjoyed our stay in this very cosy apartment. It is well placed near the Le Perriere lift and to the regular free bus service to other lifts such as the main Chavannes lifts and cabine. The apartment was very warm and cosy with a lovely view of the ski fields and the bottle of red wine was most welcome on our arrival. Good value for money.
