Passa Franc - Apartment for 8 people in Les Gets

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Apartment, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 8 people

Saturday changeover in summer and winter.

This is a truly stunning chalet-style penthouse apartment, luxuriously fitted and offering fine views of the surrounding mountains.

Situated in the La Turche area of Les Gets it is just steps away from a drag lift, or follow the piste down to the Perrieres six man express chairlift which takes you up to access ‘The Bowl’ and Mélèzes, the owners’ favourite run.

The apartment was built in 2010 and has been finished to a very high standard. The main living space is large - double height with exposed roof beams and floor-to-ceiling windows offering amazing views across the valley from Mont Chery to the Chavannes. There is a large, deep, comfortable L-shaped sofa with plenty of space for relaxing after a hard day’s skiing. For your entertainment there is a wall-mounted flat-screen television offering UK satellite channels, a DVD player (with a selection of films), an i-pod dock, a collection of books, jigsaws and board games and wireless internet access.

The living room opens on to a very spacious balcony area with both sun chairs and a large dining table with chairs. If the weather allows there is no better way to start the day than sipping hot chocolate and eating a breakfast of croissants in the sunshine before an excellent day’s skiing.

There are four hotel standard bedrooms: two of the bedrooms can be configured as king-sized doubles or twins and one is a double bedroom. There are two well-appointed bathrooms – one of which has a washing machine for your use. There is also a fourth bedroom on the mezzanine level, with two single beds and a separate WC and wash hand basin. This room doubles as a kids playroom, with a second wall mounted television and well insulated walls.

The kitchen is compact but well-appointed with oven, hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher as well as all of the utensils, crockery and glassware you could need for your stay. The dining table seats six and is the perfect place to recount all the skiing (and wipeout!) stories of the day over an evening meal.

The apartment is located in a very high-quality building with spacious, clean and modern communal areas. There is access to a ski-locker and a larger storage room on the ground floor where there are sledges for your use. The apartment is located up the stairs, on the third floor - there is no lift. Outside, there is plenty of parking space.

To access the village you can walk (about 10 minutes) or take the free shuttle bus from the end of the driveway. At night there is a paid shuttle service provided by the town hall.

Like all of our properties Passa Franc is non smoking and pets are not allowed.

Les Gets dates from the 11th century and its name refers to the passages between the trees through which wood is transported to this day by the foresters. In the summer, the area is lush with trees and flowered meadows and criss-crossed by walking and mountain bike tracks. In winter, it is a popular skiing resort with slopes for skiers of all abilities and part of the huge inter-linked Portes du Soleil, the largest skiing area in the world. The many lifts serve not only skiers, but a smaller network is also adapted to carry bikes in summer. Les Gets is only 30 miles from Thonon on Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), with opportunity for water sports and for exploring the cities and towns along the lakeside - from Geneva and the lovely medieval village of Yvoire in the south to Evian, Montreux and Lausanne in the north. Other sightseeing possibilities include the historic town of Annecy with its lake and canals, and Chamonix with Mont Blanc and the impressive Aiguille du Midi cable car.

Golf: In the heart of the Portes du Soleil, with stunning views of the local forests and mountains, lies the les Gets Golf course. It is a great place to play, with well-kept greens and a truly exceptional situation. With its view of the opening hole, the club restaurant is the perfect place to relax during the day.

Ski: Les Gets is a linked ski resort within the Portes du Soleil. Lift passes can be purchased for Les Gets and the neighbouring area of Morzine, or for the wider Portes du Soleil. Combined, Les Gets and Morzine have 52 lifts and 66 pistes for all levels of ability. The ski area in Les Gets consists of the principal Chavannes side, served by the main lifts from the village centre, and the smaller Mont Chéry side, served by a small white cable car. The Chavannes ski area consists mainly of blue and red runs (beginner and intermediate). There are nursery areas both in the village and at the Chavannes mid-station, which is reached via the small “red egg” cable car. In the area on the Chavannes side known as “The Bowl”, there are numerous ski runs and chairlifts. Here are the resort's most easily accessible black runs: Yeti accessed via the La Rosta chairlift and Myrtilles accessed by the Grains d'Or Express.
