Summer in Les Gets……

The summer is now well underway here – with the sun beating down and temperatures in the high 20’s, it’s beginning to feel a lot like a holiday. The lake is open for swimming and the village is buzzing with visitors. Here’s what we’ve been up to so far and what we’ll be doing in our free time over the coming months.

We spent this weekend watching the amazing Crankworkz event with hundreds of brave mountain bikers showing of their tricks on huge jumps at the bottom of the Chavannes – it was a real spectacle to watch and brought a brilliant atmosphere to the village.

Last weekend, the golf course opened for the summer, so Craig has been well occupied brushing up his game before club competitions start. The Les Gets course really is beautiful – 18 holes covering the section of the mountain stretching from the top of the Chavannes to the Morzine/Les Gets plateau (near the Vaffieu restaurant). There’s definitely something unique about playing golf on fairways that you skied just a couple of months ago!

One of the best is the hike up the Chavannes, round the Rosta bowl and back down to the village. The walk crosses lots of pistes and passes lots of lift stations that we visit regularly in the winter and it’s really interesting to see them in their summer greenery.

We’ve also been busy around the chalet, planting the flower boxes and testing the BBQ – the terrace is looking lovely and ready for our first guests who’ll arrive next weekend.

With loads of events coming up too, it’s promising to be a great summer Up the Alps – we hope you’ll come and join us!
