LES GETS INSIDER’S GUIDE: A Destination With All The Added Extras!

There are a number of reasons we love Les Gets. Whether it’s the incredible skiing on offer, the fantastic learners’ terrain or the gorgeous town centre, this is truly a wonderful mountain destination. However, one of our favourite things about Les Gets is the friendly local businesses, many of which are independent and have a true passion for the area. One of these businesses, Chalets1066, offer an accommodation experience unlike any other, with a multitude of additional services that allow you to fully personalise your holiday.

These days, there are a many tour operators offering ski holidays. However, Chalets1066 truly stand out from the rest, thanks to their fully personalised service and the fact that solely operating in Les Gets, they have a true expert knowledge and love of the area.

What’s great about the extent of their additional services is that you can create the perfect holiday for any budget and for all needs. Services range from airport transfers and lift pass delivery to private chefs, childcare and cleaning services.

Regardless of what you have booked, all guests receive a ‘reception’ in their chalet or apartment from a member of Chalets1066 staff, all of whom live and breathe Les Gets and will be able to give you detailed information on the area or answer any questions you might have.

From here on, you can opt to do everything yourselves. However, if you really want to make the most of your time in the mountains, it can be sensible to benefit from some of Chalets1066’s extras. For example, you can get your lift passes delivered directly to the accommodation before you arrive meaning you don’t have to waste any time getting on the slopes. They can even arrange for you to have your hire skis and boots fitted within the comfort of your chalet, meaning professional service but without the lengthy queues of the hire shop.

This is also a good idea if you want to benefit from Les Gets’ top ski hire service; Berthet Sports. This family-run business has been operating in Les Gets for over 60 years and is run by two brothers, both qualified ski instructors. You couldn’t ask to be in better hands! They also have one of the best ski servicing machines on the market, so that you can make sure your skis start and end your holiday in the best possible condition. If you are renting, they have a huge variety of skis and snowboards to choose from, from beginner skis all the way up to their speciality Rip & Wood skis, handmade in the Haute Savoie in solid ash. Though this hire shop is usually one of the more expensive in the area due to its exceptionally high quality, the discounts you receive through Chalets1066 make it a similar price to the other ‘cheaper’ hire shops in resort.

Berthet’s friendly customer service, can-do attitude and years of experience enable you to start your week’s skiing with the confidence that your equipment is the best you can get. However, the other key draw of Berthet is that they are located right opposite the slopes and offer secure storage facilities, meaning you can ski all the way down and simply change into your shoes and head home or into town!

If you’re after a luxury experience, Chalets1066 can even offer a chef service, allowing you to sit back and relax at the end of your ski day whilst delicious meals are prepared for you. Alternatively, you can opt for a meal delivery. It can be arranged that all your meals are stocked up in your fridge/freezer before you even arrive! All you have to do is simply heat it up and you’ve got restaurant quality food without any of the hassle of cooking! With four different catering options available, Chalets1066 offer an opportunity for you to experience some of the area’s best food in the comfort of your own home away from home.

However, they also understand that some guests prefer the flexibility of cooking for themselves and dictating their own mealtimes. If so, Chalets1066 give you the option to save your valuable holiday time by having groceries delivered rather than having to head out to do the shops.

Or, simply get your fresh bread and croissants delivered at 7:30am each morning. Made that morning by the local baker, this sure beats the wake up call of a snowy walk to the boulangerie and sets your day up in the best possible way!

Chalets1066 also offer a broad range of properties, from great value apartments to high end luxury chalets, all of which are cleaned and maintained to exceptional standards. This, plus their tailor-made services, ensure that you can enjoy your stay in Les Gets to the full. Indeed, in a resort as lovely as this you deserve to have the best possible time.
