I say picture perfect because the thing that will always stay in my mind is the magnificent view across the rooftops of Les Gets to the ski slopes beyond. I was often up early in the morning with our baby, watching the town gradually change from dark to light, the piste bashers coming in from their night on the mountains, the town waking up and lifts starting. All day long the view captivated. It gets the sunshine all day. For new years eve it was the perfect place to watch the torch-lit descent and the towns fireworks. We felt like dignitaries with our canapes and champagne spectating from our VIP viewpoint. (I gather the town does the torch-lit descent and fireworks every Monday when its ski season, so you don't have to go at New Year to enjoy this experience).
We stayed for two weeks at Chalet 345. The location is great, its a short walk to town (we measured 800metres to the piste) or we used the car to ferry when we needed to. There is a ski bus stop very close, but we didn't try it. We did need snow chains to get the car up to the chalet when we arrived, but didn't need them when we left and the snow had melted.
We had a mixed group. Non skiers, an elderly grand mother, and a baby. For us everyone was catered for, and everyone was comfortable. The chalet has everything we needed to entertain, prepare food, and relax. Smart TVs, a DVD collection, kids toys and games, and a well equipped kitchen.
Michelle was a joy to make the reservations and plans with. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything happened very smoothly, and she made lots of recommendations to us. We tried a number of the restaurants she suggested and they were all great. It was also very helpful to know to book a ski locker in advance down at Berthet sports. They were busy because it was new year, but we managed to keep all our equipment at the foot of the pistes. Very handy.
The chalet benefits from having a chalet manager in resort, Jo. Like Michelle, nothing was too much trouble. She was available anytime we needed anything, and was a great reassurance to know she was nearby.
We had a lovely two weeks staying in the Chalet. Varied weather, but Epic skiing and a fab gourmet experience to boot. We miss Les Gets and Chalet 345 very much, and the various friends and family that stayed with us keep telling me what a great time they had. All in all - highly recommended!
