About Andrew Round

Hi my name is Andrew Round and I live in Les Gets permanently, I have been visiting the Portes du Soleil for the last 20 years and fell in love with Les Gets. In 2012 I was very fortunate to realise my dream and move to the Village to live on a permanent basis. I purchased the chalet at the end of 2012. I look forward to welcoming you to Les Gets and be able to share some of my enthusiasm for the village and surrounding area.

Andrew Round purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Andrew Round chose Portes du Soleil area

We are located in a quiet location a short distance from the village centre on the half hourly free (no lift pass required) shuttle bus route which drops you off in the middle of the village at the main lift station and ski schools meeting points. The big advantage of being on the edge of the village, where we are is that you can make the best of the breathtaking south facing views over the pistes and village to relax in front of the log fire after a hard days skiing.

What makes this chalet unique

I live on site will do all we can to help you find your way round, both the village and the ski area. I can help you arrange lift passes, ski hire and transfers to and from Geneva airport, etc. It is my aim to make sure you have the best holiday possible, so will help you with simple things like lighting the fire, helping you get online with the WIFI, recommending restaurants etc. If you need help and advice of where to ski then I will give you guidance and explain where the lift queues form

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very pleasant week in Chalet Les Forbans in February this year, the apartment is well equipped and the location is excellent. You get great views across the valley to the ski area and the bus is 2 mins walk from the chalet which drops you off at various locations for the different lifts. Andrew and Jane were great hosts and always on hand is needed, i would recommend this chalet and Les Gets to anyone who enjoys the skiing especially families.

ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic four night stay in this lovely apartment. The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped with everything that you would require for a ski break.

The apartment is a 15 minute walk into the village, however we did not find this to be problematic as there is a free half hourly shuttle bus which stops right outside.

The owners Andrew and Jane gave us a very warm welcome driving us into the village on our first day to pick up passes and ski hire and offering great tips on the best places to ski and eat.

We cannot wait to return again.
