Brilliant

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We have just returned from Chalet La Rocade where the whole family, including a teenager, had a fabulous holiday! This was our 3rd time staying with "Montagne et Tradition" but our first at La Rocade. The chalet is beautiful- a traditional wooden style but with a modern, luxurious feel.

The hosts, Alex and Harry were lovely. We stayed in the last week of the ski season, but there was no suggestion of any winding down, the level of service was exceptional and the food was delicious.

The chalet is very close to the nearest chairlift, but the bus stop is also directly opposite the chalet, to take you to the more central lifts of Les Chevannes making it easy to get the children to ski school on time! We had such a lovely time that we have already booked again for next season.

The Best

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Unfortunately we are having to return home from the best chalet we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a few. Jana, Alex and Harry have been the perfect hosts , looking after us to the most amazing standard. Chalet was amazing beautiful bed rooms comfy beds loads of hot water . hot tub a bonus after day on the slopes. We came as family of 6 with my husband, son, daughter in law and 2 grandsons and just had the best time . Food was top class, cake in afternoon was yummy. Could not fault anything so have already booked to come back next year.

People, Location, Food, Accommodation..... Amazing!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This was to quote one of our group - "the best holiday ever". Jana, Raphael, Alex and Harry were fantastic, taking care of every little detail, to ensure that our trip was as easy on us as possible, and taking care of us fantastically even weeks before we arrived! The kids (2 and 4) were fantastically catered for, and for the adults it was even better - I am still having withdrawal from the amazing afternoon teas, which speaks nothing of the super creations for evening meals.

The convenience of the Perrier ski lift and the proximity to the free bus service - just some of the added perks! But you know, you could truly forget about getting cold, frolicking around in the snow and sliding down slopes at speed (which also happened to be great!) - and just luxuriate happily in this chalet all week! Thanks guys!

fab food and great skiing

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

so many great things to say about Chalets-LesGets :) but the superb dinners are possibly top of the list. Comfy beds, comfy chairs and unlimited logs for the fire round off the evenings beautifully. Four of us stayed very comfortably on the middle floor last week. Speedy and helpful responses from Jana made the booking process easy and her advice on skis and passes was much appreciated. Harry and Alex are lovely hosts, very attentive and ready to help with everything. Ski bus drops you at the door - but it's only a short walk to the lift and access to some quiet and lovely runs. Great views from the hottub as you enjoy the jet massage. Would definitely go again - thanks everyone

Family holiday

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

A big thank you to Jana and Raphael, Alex and Harry for our wonderful stay in Chalet La Rocade, Les Gets. We went during Feb half term, we were late arriving around 12 midnight due to a delay on the flight and Alex and Harry were waiting up for us with a hot meal in the oven and even though the children were tired we all enjoyed the wonderful food prepared. The food all week was delicious and the children's food was very good too and all consumed. Alex and Harry were lovely,hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The chalet Itself was one of the best I've stayed in, I believe it it new and built to a lovely standard. We had the downstairs chalet and it had all we required for a family of 4 but it slept 6. Jana had organised all our ski passes and ski hire and as we arrived late the night before, Mat the ski hire man was there bright and early the next morning with skies, boots, helmets etc, so all the hassle was taken out of organising and getting all our equipment.

A slight downside and it is only slight is that if you have children or less experienced skiers you need to go to the main bubble lft in Les Gets, as we had to, but the bus runs every half hour and stops rights ice the door of the chalet and they run regularly throughout the day and then an evening service takes over if you want to sample the delights of Les Gets and it's only 2 euro per person and I think kids go free. If you can ski competently there is a chair lift 2 mins walk away so this is not a problem. Overall we had the most fantastic holiday, nothing was to much trouble for Jana, so much so that we're coming back next year! And I'm even returning sooner with some girlfriends for a long weekend! A definite thumbs up from us

Excellent and friendly service

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Just come back from a great skiing holiday, having booked the whole of La Rocade. Jana and Raphael make a perfect team. Jana provides amazing service from letting us borrow her own Neslresso coffee machine to picking us up when we missed the last cable car at the end of the day!! She takes the pain out of booking ski hire as she organises for a ski hire company to visit the chalet upon arrival, plus all the ski passes and lessons are organised ahead of time. This is brilliant service. Raph provides great cuisine, much higher standard than normal chalet food. Our two chalet hosts, Alex and Harry, were great and nothing seemed too much trouble. I had one day feeling quite ill and Alex lent me her electric over-blanket - much appreciated!!

The chalet is divided into 3 main spaces. Nicely furrnished though the double rooms are a bit small. There were 16 of us, and since we asked to all eat together this did mean that there wasn't much "lounging" space in the main living area. Having said this, I thought it was excellent. Alice for money. The outside hot tub, whilst a short cold walk in the snow, was greatly enjoyed by all. Lovely open Fire and very warm in the chalet. A 5-10 minute walk to the Perriere lift. Can't recommend this company enough. This was my second time with Jana and Raph and will definitely go with them again.

Wonderful stay in Les Gets

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Our group of 17 took over the whole chalet for the second week in January. There were all ages and the chalet worked so well on its 3 levels, each level with its own kitchen and sitting areas to spread out into if you wanted. The food was excellent every night. Breakfast was cooked quickly to perfection and to order every morning.. Harry and Alex were super accommodating in looking after us all as individuals (Still waiting for Harry to let us know he broke our ski speed record - must be slower than he thought!) Ski lift was a short 4-5 min walk or sometimes made use of the free 5 minute bus to town and more lifts which was a great service and regularly stopped on schedule every 30 minutes right outside front door. Rooms and beds very comfortable. Felt very relaxed the whole time. Enjoyed the whole Les Gets/Morzine to Switzerland ski area for first time . Plenty to do for a whole week. Would repeat the whole thing next week if we could. Thanks to Harry and Alex for everything.

Another great holiday in Les Gets

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Many thanks to Rapha and Jana for organising another great week in Les Gets. We took the whole of Chalet la Rocade for a group of 16 of us. Our hosts Harry and Alex were terrific and as usual the food excellent (especially the sprouts Harry!) If you stay at any of Chalet Les Gets places, and this is my second time, you will not be disappointed as the service is exceptional. This Chalet itself is very comfortable with all floors having great bedrooms and bathrooms. Although it is a little way out of town a free bus runs you up and back on a regular basis and you are within a 5 min walk to the nearest lift. We had great skiing and great fun. I am sure we will be back next year...

A group of friends rented the chalet for a week in January! It was a fantastic experience! It is in a great location less than 5 minutes walk for the ski lift! The food was top class; we had a wholesome breakfast every morning, and a 3-course meal at night! Not to mention freshly baked cake after the slopes each day! The staff were extremely accommodating and the service was excellent! I would recommend this chalet 110%

Fantastic holiday

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We have just returned from a great time in the French Alps, staying in the beautiful town of Les Gets for skiing and walking.Chalet la Rocade is perfect for this kind of holiday as it's warm and comfortable to return to in the evening or to relax in during the day.

We stayed on the top floor, six adults, and the accommodation was ideal, having three good sized bedrooms. Everything was clean and well looked after.

What made our stay perfect however was the attention to detail of the staff.

Alex and Harry and Jana gave us such a warm welcome with coffee and cake and throughout our stay they were on hand to answer all our questions and to provide us with really good meals three times a day! The food was exceptional, delicious cakes and breakfasts with lots of choice for any picky eaters.The vegetarian amongst us was well provided for too.

All the ski passes and equipment were organised for us, which made a big difference to the first day's skiing.The staff manage to do all of this without being intrusive and we always felt comfortable with them.We are already thinking about another ski holiday and would not hesitate to return to Chalet la Rocade.

Best Ski Experience Ever

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We were part of a group experiencing our first ski holiday in Les Gets and first Chalet experience .On arrival we were greeted by 2 lovely smiling persons and a very nice meal, well after they should have finished for the evening. They, Harry and Alex were so efficient and nothing was a problem over the week, indeed it amazed me how organised and helpful they were for the week considering their young years. ( or it could be my older years) The food was the best we ever experienced on a Ski trip,and it was such a treat to come down the mountain and head in for freshly baked cakes and bread with preserves. After a shower it was out to the hot tub to ease out sore legs.

The company is so efficent and nothing was a problem from the transfers, ski pass pre bookings to the highly organised ski hire from Matt who brought all our ski gear to the Chalet. We were a very diverse group of adults and we all thoroughly had the best experience ever from Ralph( chef extrodenaire)Jana ( chefs right and woman),Phil our link person and of course Harry and Alex

The one negative is for Apres ski(if Apres is a big part of your holiday) the taxi service is restricted and its a 10-15 min walk to the Chalet. Enjoy the season Guys and MANY THANKS to everyone... we will be back

I am just back from a week in Chalet la Rocade and I dont have a single bad thing to say about the place. The rooms were very modern and comfortable, the food was amazing, the Staff (Alex and Harry) were lovely to have around and were always so helpful. The chalet is less than 100m to a ski lift that brings you to the main ski area in Les Gets. The hot tub was an added bonus after a hard days skiing! We were lucky with the snow and Les Gets has a fantastic selection of ski runs.

Fantastic Hospitality

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We feel utterly spoiled after spending a week here with our two eldest children (10 and 8). We stayed on the middle floor of Chalet la Rocade which had great access to the hot tub which the kids loved. We were so well looked after by Harry and Alex who made delicious breakfasts, cakes and amazing three course meals in our kitchen...so it was great to get some tips and they were so helpful. The resort was quiet the first week in January which was great as there were no queues and plenty of space on the slopes. The chalet is in a great location with a free bus stopping just outside to take you that short distance into town but close enough to walk back if you have enough energy for a night out in town. We would definitely recommend this resort and this chalet. Thank you for a perfect holiday

Still remembering the luxury of our week at chalet la rocade. Alex and Harry successfully provided the perfect setting at the chalet, where nothing appeared to be too much trouble. Given there were numerous kids with us they efficiently fed them all and served up a superb gastronomic meal for us adults as well. Not to mention cooked breakfasts to order and amazing cakes every afternoon. Our ski passes and kit and many questions were efficiently sorted by Jana, which ensured a perfect week.

Hospitality at its Best!!!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Our family of six have just returned from our Christmas stay at Chalet La Rocade's very snazzily refurbished ground floor apartment .I can honestly say that our every need was looked after!

Alex and Harry (the chalet staff) quietly lay out breakfast every morning! A freshly baked apres -ski surprise awaits on the table every afternoon! Then at seven o clock , a 2-3 course meal prepared to Rafa's amazingly high standards was served!I cannot over-emphasise the joy of not having to venture out nightly into the icy cold with hungry ,tired children!Presentation, taste,variety etc was of such a high standard that there was always a sense of occasion!(we even had our own turkey etc on christmas day!!!)

The "honesty bar "was very fairly priced with cans of soft drinks being 1 euro each and very pleasant wine 6-10 euros a bottle!(juices etc are plentiful and free!) It is however not just the above that comes with this holiday! Booking the holiday is done through Jana! Jana's organisational skills are honestly second to none! Transfers,ski passes,lessons etc are all seamlessly arranged!!

Location was also great as the walk into town was an easy, pleasant 10 mins! Or the bus passes outside every 10 mins anyway!!Skiing wise, it was ideal as the Perrieres lifts are across the road so the morning queues at the main lift can be avoided!! The skiing in Les Gets is fantastic with access to all of the Portes du Soleil!

I would thoroughly recommend it! Stay in Chalet La Rocade! You will enjoy some amazing food, get to relax+++! and meet some lovely people who really know the meaning of "The Hospitality Industry'!

Best Week Ever

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We have just returned from the best holiday week thanks to Jana, Raph, Harry and Alex. We booked the whole of the chalet and had 19 of us staying there over 3 floors The chalet was very comfortable and well appointed, the beds were lovely and it was toasty warm. Jana had sorted out all of our lift passes, ski gear, transfers before arrival so it was made very easy for us. Matt from Mad Wax visited us not long after we arrived to check all our ski kit was okay. The chalet is located right opposite the free bus in to the main chavanne lift area/ski school which made life easy. There is also a supermarket right opposite along with a lovely little cheese factory and restaurant which we visited on our free night. The fondue and raclette were lovely.

The chalet food was 5 star - right from the beautiful presentation through to the taste. It really was restaurant quality. Harry and Alex looked after us incredibly well, and anticipated and met all of our needs. Nothing was too much trouble, and they went way over and beyond the call of duty to look after us. We have a few allergies and fussy children and they took this in their stride. The afternoon tea cakes were amazing - think lemon meringue pie, tarte tatin ... not your everyday cake!! The outdoor spa was very well used and a lovely way to relax after a day's skiing. All in all, this was an amazingly relaxing week away. Thanks very much, we will definitely be back.

My Favourite Week of the Year

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

My best kept secret is finally out! For one week of the year I get to do what the rest of the family do all year round at mealtimes - absolutely nothing. We been coming for 5 years now to Jana & Raphael's chalets and this Easter once again, it was pampered luxury for the entire week. The services they offer are so good, the only effort you have to make is to roll out of bed each morning and go ski.

Matt is already waiting at the chalet on our arrival to kit us out with his ski equipment, often making several return trips to cater for our large, ever growing family of 6. Any ski lessons are booked and lift passes have already been arranged, a delicious afternoon tea is laid out and of course, our hosts ready to greet us with their wit and warmth. The only thing you have to do is unpack before enjoying a week of complete pampering.

La Rocade is directly opposite Les Perrieres ski lift, so there is no queuing whatsoever. You can walk into Les Gets but there are free buses to and from Les Gets centre (10min ride) right outside the chalet and a minimarket yards from the front door. The chalet is clean and spacious with plenty of storage and warmth so everything dries easily overnight. A well stocked fridge keeps everyone happy and a boot warmer room in the basement is excellent for drying out the boots and gloves. And of course the hot tub is a welcome treat after a long days ski.

If the snow is low in Les Gets (which by the way is the most charming chocolate box family village with an outdoor ice rink), Jana and Raphael lay on free transport to and from the nearby slopes of Ardent or Avoriaz. Of course, the skiing is excellent with easy access to Switzerland so it's well worth getting a Portes du Soliels lift pass which allows you to ski pretty much anywhere. The hosts are always on hand to explain where all the runs and lifts lead to, along with the daily weather updates.

We have stayed in several of their chalets and each one is fantastic. It really feels like a home from home. The hosts we have had are always so nice and helpful, with just the right amount of input during meal times and an uncanny knack of being invisible if there's any squabbles at the dinner table. And the food - to say it is 5 star is probably an understatement. Raphael is an excellent chef and has trained his hosts very well. It is just so delicious, filling and amazing. The hosts are happy to pretty much fit in around your timetable for mealtimes whether you are early or late risers.

I really can't praise it highly enough. Because of Jana & Raphael's fantastic hospitality and their attention to detail, it has made us return year after year. They are the most genial, funny and entertaining hosts I was ever lucky to stumble across and their little boy Leo is just adorable. If you are ever lucky enough to meet him, pucker up because he loves to give kisses. Just remember to bring some mint sauce with you - it's Raphael's favourite....!

Great Stay

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed as a family of 4 here for 4 nights near the end of the season and took the whole of the newly renovated top floor. The rooms were clean, well appointed and bright. The food and service was great. Not 5 star but simple and tasty - good value for money. Jana and Raphael did the transfers which worked out very well. They also sorted out driving us to and from Avoriaz when needed which was extremely useful. Overall a great time. The team responded well to all our needs. Drinks were not in package but were very reasonably priced. Thanks a million.

What a Fantastic Holiday

The chalet was excellent, we had both floors and all rooms were fantastic. We were looked after by Shaz and Chris and nothing was to much trouble. The food was out of this world with a varied menu. It was easy access to the centre, and all lessons and ski passes were sorted for us in advance.

They worked incredibly hard to ensure that we had everything we needed and they were never phased by the noisy children and loud parents. The food was SO good. A definite level above any chalet food that we have experienced. The location was ideal for us early risers as the Perrieres lift has no queues and gives easy access into the rest of the resort. Jana was a great help in the lead up to the holiday arranging transfers, ski hire and everything else. Raff's culinary skills were seriously appreciated. We are already checking diaries for next year.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Had a wonderful week at Chalet La Rocade. Were looked after much too well by Chris & Shaz, Jana and Raph. Gorgeous ( and copious) food and cake, a well stocked fridge, lift passes on arrival (so no queuing), ski kit delivered to the door not to mention the easy transfers to and from Geneva all contributed to making our holiday enjoyable and memorable. The hot tub was also welcome after a hard day on the slopes. The snow was great and there is a very quiet ski lift only a few minutes from the Chalet which made getting to the slopes very easy. Hopefully we will be back for some of that Pear & Almond Tart - as well as to ski.

We'll be Back

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Staying in Chalet La Rocade with Mountain & Tradition made for a great snow boarding holiday 2014. Jana, Raph and the team have a very well run business which started for us with our transfer from Geneva airport. Our lift passes were ready for us and the ski/board hire is done in-chalet on the first day which saved us lots of queuing vs pervious stays in les gets!

The Chalet is only a very short walk from an express chair lift which is nice and quiet - we were the first on some of the runs after some good snow fell. The town centre is only a short walk away which was perfect for stretching the legs after a full day.

Every day we were welcomed back to the chalet with fresh cake followed by a soak in the hot tub. The food was exceptional, from a hearty breakfast fixed by our chalet host Chris to a superb 3 course meal. Chris did a wonderful job with our meals - his recipes are very original and cooked to perfection (especially the exotic cake!).

My only complaint is that I had to go home at the end of the week. 10/10 and we'll be back next season!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Simply cannot speak highly enough of Jana, Raph and their amazing team (shout outs to Shaz and Chris, and the fabulous Dave). Our stay was just plain wonderful and I wish I could take a snapshot of our memories and post those, rather than trying to put it into words.

It started with being met at Geneva airport (which is a crazy house and filled with a million sets of stairs which is maddening when travelling with children), provided with all the assistance once could wish for when travelling with small children and a bucketload of luggage, and bundled into the car which was happily parked very close and handily equipped with plenty of room. Our driver, Dave (who doubles as a super chef) was lovely and happy to play tour guide. A beautiful drive (once away from the airport surrounds) and an easy one up to Les Gets.

The chalet was absolutely beautiful. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it was truly lovely. Impeccably clean, simply but elegantly furnished with everything we could possibly need, including plenty of storage. Plenty of room in the living room for us to spread out. Kids' bedroom far enough away to allow them some quiet to sleep. Comfortable bed - tick. Excellent shower (I'm sorry, but it's a deal breaker) - tick. The food was astonishingly good and the well stocked bar fridge was an absolute favourite. The bus stop into the village was right outside the front door and there was a mini supermarket about 100 metres up the road. It was about 10 minutes into the village by bus but this never felt like a hardship because the buses run regularly and they're free.

The village is absolutely gorgeous. Small enough to feel cosy but big enough to keep your interest. Plenty of lovely little stores selling locally made wares and groaning with cheese and chocolate and salami and all that other French goodness. Some great restaurants which we didn't really get to try because we were spoiled for food in the chalet. The skiing was great, everything is really accessible with lots of variety. Our hosts organised all the ski hire for us, as well as lift tickets which sounds like a small thing but it's truly those small things that make a major difference. We were driven into the village on our first day and helped to get sorted and settled - again a gesture truly appreciated that made a huge difference to the day. Ski school was wonderful and the standard of the child care facilities and carers was excellent.

A little bit of French is helpful and appreciated by the locals, but not mandatory. The village really is aimed towards families so there was none of the drunken loutish behaviour one generally associates with the skiing crowd (or more particularly the aprés-ski crowd). It was simply wonderful and I am incredibly cross that we live so far away because I would visit every weekend. Highly highly recommend.

Fabulous Food, Cosy Chalet, Great Location

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed at Chalet Novelin last summer and were so impressed with Chalet Montagne Tradition that we booked our skiing holiday staying at Chalet du Coin before we left the resort in August. The chalet was very clean, warm and cosy during our stay. The food, as we found last summer, is of a consistently high standard and prepared by Raph and his team who should be proud of their organisation. The chalet is conveniently located in a quiet spot at one end of this picturesque village, within 5 mins of the lifts to the ski slopes and village centre with it's bars, shops and restaurants. The outside hot tub is a wonderful way to relax after a hard morning's skiing, especially when a glass of bubbly is passed to you through the window !! There is a ground floor bar and sauna for guests to enjoy and the noise doesn't travel to the upstairs bedrooms. We drove from the UK which was easy and painless. French roads are a delight, after the congestion on the M25 and there is parking outside the chalet. Ski & boot hire and lift passes had all been efficiently arranged for us by Jana before we arrived so it was just a question of going to the shop for sizing. Skis, poles and boots (kept on boot warmers) are held at the shop for you to collect and return daily as required. The free Wifi in the chalet was excellent and faster than at home. All-in-all a very easy and efficient way to holiday in 5 star luxury without the hefty prices. Highly recommended and can't wait to return !! Thanks everyone at Chalet Montagne Tradition for making our holiday so enjoyable.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We had a fantastic holiday at Chalet du Coin. Les Get is beautiful and the Chalet was very clean and comfortable, well located with plenty of food, drink and entertainment. The hosts were polite, friendly and went out of their way to ensure all guests had everything they needed - that included a fresh cake EVERY DAY, board games, free wifi, sauna and 24hr heated hot tub!

Now... the food, oh the food - we ate like Kings! We dined in restaurants around the resort every day for lunch, but the food, coffee and cake was by far the best at the Chalet.

We were well and truly spoilt, thank you so much for everything!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

A wonderful 4 day experience to my first catered chalet. I have stayed in Les Gets un catered previously but will not again after finding this Gem . Wonderful food, service and atmosphere less than an hour and a half from Geneva by transfer. A couple of minutes walk to the centre of the village and slopes, the location is excellent. Jana can organise as much or as little as you like for your skiing requirements. Raphas food is of Michelin standard with well chosen wines to match. Hosts John and Faye ensure your glass/mug/cup is always fully full whatever you require. The hot tub eases the stiffness of the slopes at the end of the day and there is a sauna too. Wednesday is the staffs day off so you can explore and eat out on Wednesday evening. We had a mixed chalet a family a couple and a solo visitor it was suitable for all. My only issues managing my wine consumption to ensure it did not impinge on the following days skiing. I transferred with AlpNav who were very professional and skied with ESF and hired my skis from Michaud 1 all very trouble free.

Food Lovers Paradise

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed at the chalet with a group of friends and family some of whom has stayed here before. It is difficult to find anything to fault about this chalet. it is centrally located and the rooms are clean and pleasant. John and Fay who looked after the chalet were very friendly and helpful. However the key feature is the food. Raphael sets the menu and prepares the evening meals. I have eaten in many restaurants and love my food but can say I have never eaten food of such a consistently high quality in terms of presentation and taste before. He is an outstanding chef. Also my daughter was with us who needs a gluten free diet as she has Coeliac Disease and Raphael always prepared dishes for her that were gluten free which is not always the case.

We are looking forward to next years gourmet week - never mind the skiing!

Great Location and wonderful food

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

I can't thank Jana enough for all her pre visit organisation (lift passes, ski hire and transfers) which meant that we could turn up and get on the slopes as soon as we arrived. She had also made a note of my fussy eating habits, and Raph adapted the menu each night to accommodate. It was great to have a different wine paired with the food each evening, and we managed to work our way through the sparkling wine stock by having a daily aperitif. The chalet itself is perhaps a little cramped for the number of people that it sleeps, and rooms 1 and 2 on the same floor as the living accommodation could potentially be noisy! Thankfully, all of our fellow guests were so tired after skiing that it was early nights all round! The chalet hosts John and Faye looked after us with plentiful breakfasts each morning (loved the Savoyard scrambled eggs) and made some delicious treats for afternoon tea to welcome us back each afternoon. Overall, it was a great week, and I'd definitely book with Chalets Les Gets for our next ski break.

Top Class

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Having stayed in Les Gets several times and being very disappointed last year we booked Chalet Du Coin for this year. Having never stayed there before and having had a bad experience we were unsure what to expect.

We arrived on Sunday evening and were greeted by Raphael, John and Fay. From the minute we stepped into Chalet Du Coin until the minute we left we wanted for nothing. The rooms were modern and spotless, the staff were exceptional and the food was of a quality only found in a top class restaurant.

Having stayed in Chalets each year for the past ten years in Courchevel 1850, Megeve and Morzine we know a bit about chalet holidays.

Chalet Du Coin is up there with the best of them. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Fabulous Stay at Chalet Du Coin

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Have just returned from Les Gets and had a wonderful time. Chalet Du Coin was great, super organization by Jana, transfers , ski passes, ski hire arranged for our arrival.

Amazing food from Raphael, probably the best food I have tasted to be honest all served in a relaxing atmosphere. Fantastic chalet hosts John and Faye who made us feel very much at home and took care of all our needs.

The hot tub was great fun with bubbles served every day!! One point to note room 1 and 2 are on the lounge level and can be noisy if you want an early night , it did not bother us as we were the last to bed , but worth pointing out .

We will be back !!!

What a wonderful stay we've just had at Chalet Du Coin. Jana's organisation and ease of booking was first class. Raph's evening meals were fabulous and we also enjoyed the variety and quality of food at breakfast...Jon's coddled eggs and Faye's crepes were particular highlights! We were lucky enough to have a sociable group to spend the evening with enjoying the fine wine and g&ts. After a day on the slopes we enjoyed mulled wine, homemade cake and hot tub action til sundown. Jon and Faye were excellent hosts, nothing was ever too much bother and always with a smile. We'll definitely be back next year. Best chalet experience ever!

Jana, Raph, John and Fay, a great team working together for their guests. Administration was excellent, food excellent, jacuzzi excellent, wines and beer excellent, tv and entertainment great. Fellow guests awesome.

Note for families with small children, the soundproofing of the upstairs bedrooms is not great and the noises emanating from one of the couples bedrooms was a little disconcerting thankfully it only lasted a couple of minutes...

Notwithstanding the middle paragraph it was a great week and I'm not sure a chalet could be any better, thanks guys and girls.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Just returned from a wonderful 5 day ski trip. The Chalet du Coin is ideal being located a short walk from the main lifts and the centre of town. Jana arrived with our lift passes 10 minutes after our arrival so we were straight to the slopes to make the most of our short break. The chalet is lovely, clean, comfortable and relaxed. We were fed, watered and looked after really well by Raph, Jon and Faye. A variety of cooked breakfasts and tea time cakes courtesy of Faye and Jon and "master chef" dinners prepared by Raphael. A real treat for hungry skiers.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Just returned from a lovely stay in Les Gets at the Chalet Du Coin. I was travelling with my 7 year old son, for his first skiing holiday. It couldn't have been any better. Even as the only child in the Chalet for the 5 days, Henry was well looked after. Jon and Faye were extremely attentive and could not have done more to make sure we were ok. The food was delicious, and drinks abundant. They even cooked an early meal for Henry so he could go to bed, while I enjoyed the 'grown up' meal.

The chalet was spotless, and our beds made every day. We had a late leave on the Thursday and were able to leave our bags downstairs, and sit in the smaller lounge with a drink until our collection time.

Thank you Jon, Faye, Fafa and Jana, we will be back!

It's all about the food

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

As a chef, I am very particular about the chalets I book for my winter breaks; for me it is as much about the food as it is about skiing!! And I have to say I was very impressed by the cuisine and the wine choices at Chalet Du Coin. The chef, Raph, a local Les Gets man, paired the perfect wines with each meal. Raph's attention to detail was outstanding and I was blown away by the standard.

All other aspects of our stay at Chalet Du Coin were also great. Jana made our trip straight-forward and hassle-free; she arranged our transfers, lift passes and ski hire for me and my friend, which really took the stress out of our trip. The staff in our chalet, Faye and John, were also very helpful, attentive and welcoming.

The Chalet was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and spacious. It is in the perfect location to enjoy both the slopes and everything the village has to offer. Although we didn't eat out in the evenings, the food in the Chalet was too good to miss.

For me, the Chalet du Coin experience is better than any impersonal hotel.

I will be back to stay at Chalet du Coin next year and again, and again....

First time to Les Gets but was aware of the reputation of a pretty and great all round resort close to Geneva which is essential for short breaks. Snow was pretty much perfect but the Chalet du Coin stole the show. Cosy, clean and warm this boutique style lodge is spacious enough but very homely. The ace card however is the hospitality and the quality of the food and drink. Don't waste any time looking for an improvement if they have a vacancy you will not be disappointed. Congratulations Rafa and your team all boxes well and truly ticked.

"The only chalet to stay at in Les Gets"

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This year we were only 4 adults but with 7 kids/teens. John & Faye took the chaos and kidnap of the laundry facilities in their stride!

Jana took the stress out of everything with regards to transfers and ski hire. Will be going back next year

We were collected from Geneva airport, arrived to find Jana with our ski passes sorted and Jana had already arranged for Delavay ski hire to have all our details. Our early, very early morning departure was also seamless with 2 vehicles to take us back to the airport.

Faye & john served us some top class breakfasts and I'm still trying to fit the consequences of eating too much of their delicious cakes and tarts back into my shorts! We also appreciated that the rooms are now made up every morning whilst we are away skiing - how great is that?

Raph's food is amazing and his current range of wines absolutely fabulous. That he served 2 separate meals: 1 for the kids earlier and a later supper for the adults is such a treat.

The rooms are clean, comfortable, warm and attractive. From all of the above it will come as no surprise that we will be booking for 2016 immediately.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed at Chalet du Coin in February as a short break. Jana was so helpful from my first enquiry and made booking easy for us. The transfers were all sorted and they couldn't be faulted.

Raphael is a rather good cook, the food was the best we've ever had and it was great to listen to him each day talking about his food, where it is from and how it is cooked - I've not yet cooked any pork in my diashwasher but I will do one day (don't panic, he uses a water bath not his dishwasher!).

The chalet is in a good location on the edge of the town centre and it is only a short walk to the shops and lifts. Most ski shops allow you to leave your skis in the shop so the kids didn't complain each day!!

The only slightly negative thing I could say about Chalet du Coin is that it doesn'y haven't a separate kit and boot room with racks and warmers. Not a massive problem and it certainly won't put us off going back again next year.

Perfect week at Chalet du Coin

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed here at the beginning of April 2014, having been to Les Gets twice before and stayed in a self-catered apartment. From the moment of booking we realised this was going to be something special - Jana made sure we had everything we needed in advance of our trip, and upon arrival at Geneva airport, we easily found Rafa and made our way to the chalet, just in time to be served coffee and cake (black forest gateaux) by Dave, and it just got better from there!

The food was exceptional, and to be honest with the choice available at breakfast, and a big four course meal in the evening, we didn't need much for lunch, and my vegetarian husband and 4 year old daughter were extremely well catered for. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who were all very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. We were even handed glasses of wine from the kitchen window whilst enjoying the hot-tub!

The chalet itself is lovely and is only a few minutes walk from town and the slopes, and yet is sufficiently away from the main bars and restaurants to be fairly quiet at night time.

We hope to return, that's of course assuming we can still book after all the (well justified) rave reviews on here!

"Wonderful week"

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We had a Fabulous week In Chalet du Coin . Everything we experienced as a group was wonderful.Nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel so at home . I could of quite easily never of come home. The food is expertly prepared by Rafael in the evening and Dave made the best breakfasts anything you wanted,so basically you have to be careful not to over indulge. Eleanor deserves a mention too as she is great at what she's does and is very responsible and helpful as well as being good fun to have around to help out and makes a mean G&T .I Loved the hot tub and sauna too and the chalet was always very welcoming with a freshly made cake when you got back from skiing all day and just to say the snow was amazing too . Thanks again Chalet Coin you definitely have it going on.

Tax is to Rafa, Jana, Stu, Dave and Anna for making our week in Les Gets so special. A really great location, stones throw from the slopes. A lovely friendly French welcome with an Irish touch

Fabulous menus and Stu was a genie in the kitchen. Couldn't recommend the place more and everyone is asking when are we going back to Chalet Replan?

I hope sometime very soon. Merci encore.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

A catered chalet of great quality. Food was amazing and all individual diets catered for. All the staff were so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Outdoor hot tub was a great place to relax - especially when g&t's or glasses of bubbly were brought out to us. Fluffy dressing gowns provided, plenty of hot water, sauna, bar with help yourself drinks/pay on trust, open fire and unlimited hot/cold drinks, decent wine, fresh fruit. 5-10 mins walk from slopes or bus outside the door. 2 mins to nearest shops & lots of bars/restaurants etc. Rooms not massive but functional. Main area is a combined lounge/dining room and 2 bedrooms downstairs so not quiet until everyone has gone to bed. Underfloor heating meant it was always warm - sometimes too hot. Edge of town but busy road outside. Overall would definitely recommend.

My first chalet experience

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Went with my lady friend on my first proper skiing trip (a taster to see if I could do and like it) since childhood so am unable to provide any comparative view versus other accommodation. Previous reviews sum up the excellence of the admin, catering and the chalet staff particularly Catherine.

The food was superbly prepared, choice of wines good but I would have welcomed some dessert wine to cut through the richness, perhaps some Icewine or a light Reisling.

For me, the chalet was a tad 'cosy' (enjoyed the hot tub & Sauna though) but entirely adequate. Amongst the guests were a family with 1 year old twins and a 3 year old and this obviously had some impact on the dynamics of the chalet.

We stayed in room 1 which was fine with a small balcony overlooking the road and resort. It seems that when is snows heavily and it is market day then the snow ploughs like to start clearing at 03.30.

Despite spending some time in the medical centre (thanks Dave for the Icepack) we enjoyed our trip and would recommend Chalet Du Coin.

Rafa and the crew made our group so very welcome at Chalet du Coin. Although most of our group had stayed many times with Rafa and Jana, this was our first time. It was fantastic! The food is amazing with Rafa being able to enjoy cooking for 12 very eager and enthusiastic guests. Dave was terrific, with nothing being too much trouble. A special mention to Eleanor who in her first week in the job was a natural host. Many thanks to you all and see you again next year if the great reviews dont make you even more popular. Mike

Superb food, service, organisation. Thanks to Raph, Jana and their team. Excellent venue in the centre of town and at the base of the slopes. We love Les Gets- fantastic skiing. Our second time with this Chalet company and we have already booked for next year. What comes over so well is not just their passion for giving you a great skiing holiday but also their passion for giving you an experience of France and particularly Les Gets.

Fantastic Chalet!!!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

In January 2014 we returned to Chalet Du Coin for our second trip in 12 months, we have just booked again for 2015. Is that not recommendation enough?

Jana is on top of all the administration and manages to be both kind and capable. Able and willing to book everything you might require from equipment hire, to ski school, lift passes and sorting collection of 13 of us from Geneva airport and back again.

Situated just 5 mins walk from the ski hire shops, the main lifts (where the kids meet for ski school) and supermarkets etc, it's very conveniently placed.

The chalet is immaculate and the new addition of a sauna along with the hot tub is a boon for tired muscles. The new bar is a lovely spot to escape to, from the kids whilst they eat.

Eat, eating, food, my word Raph's cuisine is just fabulous. We loved the fact that he is so passionate about local specialities and feel very fortunate to be the beneficiaries of his knowledge and skill.

Dave and Laura added an additional dimension of service and unflappable care with great humour. Dave's breakfasts were scrumptious - the croque monsieur topped with a perfectly cooked egg - well, breakfast heaven on a plate!!. Laura dragged in to watch an impromptu kids comedy play and laughing through it - you are a treasure!

To stop the gushing, we would have preferred to have the rooms serviced daily.

But, incredible exemplary hospitality. Thank you.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This was our second year staying at Chalet Du Coin and it just gets better!

Raph and Jana are fabulous hosts and look after you from the minute you book. Transfers and lift passes are arranged for you - the chalet staff and Jana are there to great you upon arrival.

The chalet itself is spacious and open plan on the first floor level comprising of living area, dining area, kitchen, and a deck complete with hot tub. Two bedroom are also on this level and both have a bath! The ground floor area this year is now has a fabulous bar fully stocked as well as a peanut dispenser! There is also a shower room and a sauna - another great addition for this season.

The second floor has 3 bedrooms.

All the rooms are a good size and very comfortable.

The location of the chalet is perfect - it's in the town centre - a 5 minute walk to the bars, shops and slopes.

The food is SUPERB - it just can't be beaten. Everything is beautifully presented and plentiful - the best food we've ever eaten anywhere in the mountains.

Can't wait to return next year.

Great Chalet - amazing chef

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We stayed at Chalet du Coin over the New Year week of 2012/13 as a family group of 12. There was plenty of room for us in this lovely chalet at the very quiet end of the main street in Les Gets. We got to know Raph, our excellent chalet host/chef, during the short transfer as he drove one of the two minibuses he had arranged for our collection from Geneva. He was lucky enough to have grown up in the mountains of Les Gets, then toured some of the world's finest hotels and restaurants as a chef before returning to run his chalet business. His passion of course is his cooking. The hospitality and dining experience we had here was unbelievably good and incredible value for what is the most expensive week of the ski season: Nespresso coffee, fresh breads and cooked breakfast every morning, afternoon tea with his cake baked that morning and a gastronomic dinner to end each day way beyond our expectations. The only aspect below expectations was that our rooms were not cleaned and tidied every day and we had to occasionally ask for fresh towels. But otherwise, I cannot recommend this chalet highly enough.

Fantastic Chalet - great location!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We, as a group of 10, stayed at Chalet du Coin for a weekend in June 2011 primarily for the excellent mountain biking and white water rafting nearby.

The chalet is lovely and plenty big enough for 10 lads through the 5 bedrooms as in our case. Roger and Liz were great and fresh bread provided each morning despite the self catering option. The location is perfect for both summer and winter activities. All home from home facilities provided (sky tv, DVD player, free wifi, playstation, beer fridge, swimming pool) and all rooms en suite. Very spacious, very comfortable and would return tomorrow.

The chalet induction was very thorough and we felt most welcome. Roger and Liz were also more than happy to be contacted during our stay for useful local advice (we ran out of beer on a sunday afternoon - not good in France as no shops open...!)

Thoroughly recommended!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Having 3 boys aged 10, 10 and 12 where do you take them on holiday? We decided to go to Les Gets for some adventure. We stayed at Chalet du Coin with Roger and Liz, The chalet was perfect, a room with 3 beds for the boys and a seperate room for the parents. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful, telling us where to go etc. Roger even came mountainbiking with us one day and experienced boys moaning about going up hill !! The holiday was perfect for the boys with lots of adrenaline all week, parapenting, zip wire, adventure park, white water rafting, and extreme downhill mountain biking!! Liz and Roger took us gorge walking too along with their dogs - Zoe and Merlin. We went for the catered option and Liz fed us so well we are all on diets now!! I cannot express how great the holiiday was for us all, having the catered option was great as we didn't have to come in and then go out again for evening meals. The Chalet is right in the middle of Les Gets so it is very easy to get to all the places we wanted and could walk to the chair lifts for the mountainbiking. Thank you Liz and Roger you made our holiday.

Short Ski Break

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Visited 3rd week in march for a short ski break. Never stayed in a chalet before and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere but more importantly the excellent food and company. Lowri was an great host very knowledgeable and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We took up the chalet owners offer of airport transfers and they were efficient and effortless. Les Gets was a lovely resort, plenty of shops, entertainment and bars. The ski runs were plentiful and although it was warm, we felt we preferred that to icy slopes. Especially enjoyed 'Rock the Piste' a music festival on the slopes between les gets/morzine which was an added bonus.

Ski Break

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

My wife and I had an excellent 5-day stay in this lovely chalet between15-19 March. We were met at Geneva Airport by Raph, one of the owners, on Sunday morning and were the only guests being picked up so had the opportunity to chat with Raph, who was a great source of local knowledge re Les Gets (being a local himslef) and a very personable chap too! We were in Les Gets and skiing well before lunchtime, and though there had not been snow for some time the conditions were generally good but the snow became a little slushy in the afternoon as the temperature climbed. The weather was generally good throughout our stay, mostly sunny with some cloudy (though unfortunately not snowy) periods, and really quite warm at times. Having not skied so late in the season for over 10 years it took some getting used to but the early finishes and long lunches in the sun were very enjoyable! Re the chalet, it was well kept and comfortable, and the chalet maid (if that's the right term these days!), Lowri, was a star. She was a great help and nothing was ever a trouble to her, and I think she will be much missed by the owner's when she leaves at the end of the season (good luck in HK and Thailand Lowri!) as she is a definite asset to their business. We also met Raph's wife, Jana, a few times and she was lovely and also a great help during our stay, arranging lift passes for us and booking us a table at a local restaurant on Lowri's day off. The customer service was excellent from Raph, Jana and Lowri and they made our stay all the more enjoyable. The food was also superb, the main meals being prepared by Raph in the morning and delivered to Lowri who then cooked them in the evening, as well as Lowri freshly baking delicious cakes daily for when we returned from skiing in the afternoon. We were also lucky to share the chalet with only one other family, who were lovely and a pleasure to meet. We stayed in Room 3 (a 3-bed room on the first floor), which was warm, clean and comfortable but had a couple of things to be aware of - low beams in the bathroom (so mind your head!), and the tap and sink weren't aligned properly (and not just in our room apparently) so it was easy for water to be spilled over the side of the sink when washing your hands under a running tap. Other than that, there's nothing negatve to really say about the chalet except perhaps that the internal walls are paper thin so if you want total silence be aware of that (didn't bother us), and the room on the ground floor which houses the sauna (didn't use it) and hot tub (did use it, and very nice it was too) could be better ventilated as it smels a bit musty. There is also a heated boot warmer in the garage, where you can also store your skis, which is nice to have. The location of the chalet isn't bad too but not a great walk in thawing conditions if using the off-road shortcuts, though probably quite nice in summer. It also wasn't possible to 'ski in - ski out' due to the conditions but would be earlier in the season, and there is also a bus stop for the free ski bus only a few minutes walk away which is handy. However, the service stops at 7pm so if you go for a drink in town after that you'll have to walk back or get the night bus which costs 2 euros per person. The walk back via the main road isn't bad (torch recommended for the latter stage at this time of year), probably 15 - 20 minutes from the centre of town or 30 minutes from the old town where the church is located, depending on your fitness (and intoxication!) levels. Les Gets itself is quite pleasant, being an established French town and not a purpose-built 'concrete block' resort like Flaine or Avoriaz, with plenty of restaurants and a few bars to keep you occupied in the evening On the slopes there are plenty of runs to keep most people occupied for a few days (lots of blues/reds, with a few blacks and a couple of greens) so a local area pass is usually sufficient but if you want more you can buy a Portes du Soleil pass (or even upgrade for a day) and ski around Avoriaz or even into Switzerland. There are also plenty of restaurants/snack stops and many of the runs go through wooded areas which are quite picturesque; all in all, a great area to ski on a short break. We thoroghly enjoyed our stay at Chalet Novelin, made all the more enjoyable by Raph, Jana and Lowri, and have no hesitation in recommending it if you're looking for a decent place to stay in Les Gets which also has great food and excellent service.

Catered chalet that looks after everything

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Had a fantastic experience staying here, everything was sorted out for us, with lift passes given to us in the chalet, and hired equipment delivered and fitted shortly after we arrived. Lowri the chalet host was great, providing great vegetarian food for me alongside everyone else's meat dishes and answering all questions about the resort with insider knowledge.

We missed the opportunity to ski to the lifts from the chalet as we travelled too late in the season, but there's a stop for the free shuttle 2 minutes from the chalet which was fine.

Finally, the resort of Les Gets itself is the best I've been to in terms of variety of runs - as a beginner skier I found plenty of runs I could happily build up my confidence on, and friends with years of ski experience found many other runs to challenge them.

All in all highly recommended.

Short Ski Break

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Have recently returned from an excellent short break with 3 friends. Managed to ski every single day of the 5 day trip (Sun -Thurs) - indeed we were in line at the lift queue exactly 5 hours after the plane left Gatwick! This gave us 4.5 hours skiing on the first day and a late afternoon flight from Geneva on the day of departure also allowed 4.5 hours skiing. Lowri, our friendly, efficient chalet host looked after us very well and Jana did a marvellous job of arranging transfers, ensuring skis were delivered promptly to the chalet and lift passes were immediately available on arrival. Weather was beautiful and snow in Les Gets village enabled us to ski almost to the door of the chalet. The chalet was perfect for our needs, the food was excellent, rooms were spacious and comfortable and the company and banter with the other chalet guests was great. A very enjoyable, relaxing break - will certainly do it again.

Lowri looked after us perfectly - great food, plenty of local tips, always smiling and helpful. Hot tub was a much-enjoyed luxury too (soft bath robes provided). Access to the slopes is quick and easy, and we had so much snow we could ski right back to the door at the end of the day. It's an easy walk into the centre of the village too. Skis, boots and passes were all delivered to us soon after our arrival meaning we could get out on the slopes and make the most of our time - all very helpful. A fantastic and memorable few days.

The chalet is lovely - well presented and clean with all you need, including comfy bathrobes. Lowri was very welcoming, really helpful, often going beyond what she needed to do to make our stay as comfortable and smooth as possible. Food was good and having your kit and ski passes brought to the chalet is brilliant allowing as much skiing time as possible. Its a bit of shuffle with a dip to the ski slopes, so you need to have some skiing confidence to ski to door. Had a great time thank you.

The chalet is spotless, warm, cosy and great views. Log fire too! The bus journey in the morning is a bit hairy as it's very full and watch out for the slippery floor on the bus - there is a cut through to the slopes for slightly more competent skiers. Just remember you are at bus stop 29 when you come back on the bus.It's a 15 minute walk to town and we walked down for our meal on Wednesday night. Had an amazing time!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

My daughter and I have just returned from a weeks stay in Chalet Novelin and were extremely impressed from start to finish. Raph and Jana are warm and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble.

The chalet itself is exactly what you would expect for alpine accommodation and is in an excellent, quiet location with stunning views yet within easy reach of the centre of Les Gets and the lake. The chalet was spotlessly clean and this was maintained to a very high standard throughout our stay. The highlight of our stay, apart from the views from Mont-Chery (a must do on a clear day!) had to be the food which was outstanding. We have never eaten such consistently good food night after night on holiday and certainly not at home! Raph is a wonderful chef with interesting ideas and superb presentation. He and Dave spoiled us every day with multiple options at breakfast to cater for every want and need, a delicious afternoon cake or tart and a three course dinner which was the epitome of fine dining.

Before we left Les Gets we made another booking with Chalet Montagne Tradition, this time for a winter break, and are confident to recommend Raph and his incredible team to anyone who is reading this and looking for a holiday in the Alps.

Despite all the rain making the trails very muddy Les Gets and the surrounding area is a bikers paradise and the chalet was well equipped with power wash (which was use heavily) and lots of space to store then.

We struck gold with "mountain and tradition chalets" staying in chalet novelin. Raphael , Jana and Dave's service is excellent , from the moment you book , to your goodbyes, the team were there to make your holiday run smoothly. Now the food, we have enjoyed many excellent dinners in restaurants, but never night after night from chefs who you can see (as I did) give great love and passion to their cooking.wow

Now for the activities, a must is white water rafting, walking up and down mountains in the breathtaking scenery, the hardest bike rides I will every go on......go ape , swimming in the lake and summer sleding. Followed by relaxing in the hot tub at the chalet or on the balcony with a gin and tonic....

A holiday with teenage children a must, we laughtered and bonded as a family on this holiday, we will be back. Thank you...

Summer holiday at Chalet Novelin

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Just back from a 2 week stay at Chalet Novelin in Les Gets. The chalet was really comfortable and Raphael,Jana and Dave made us feel extremely welcome and at home. The food each evening was fantastic - like eating in a good restaurant every night! The kids had their own menu which was also presented beautifully. Delicious tarts were left for us to devour each afternoon after an exhilarating trek or cycle in the surrounding mountains. Lovely.

The location of the chalet worked well for us and was very close to the swimming lake, our kids favourite destination and only a short(if steep) walk down to the village.

Thanks guys, we'll be back! x

Simply superb!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

I was new to both to the Alps as a destination (winter or summer) and to the Chalet thing so really had no idea what to expect. I'd seen pictures of awesome looking food but didn't really get where that fitted into the picture.

Turns out it was as impressive-looking as the pictures - and even better tasting thanks to Raph and Dave - and was prepared and served to us right there in 'our own' kitchen and dining room. The French are not renowned for vegetarian cuisine but every meal was varied and delicious showing the same care for our holiday experience our hosts showed in every other aspect such as organising and booking the various events.

As for the chalet itself the massive living/dining room with the big L-shaped balcony and gorgeous still view was astounding. The bedrooms and beds were fine with enough wardrobe/case-dumping space for our needs. And if that wasn't enough there's the hot tub and sauna!

I've yet to go skiing but this experience is drawing me back to Les Gets and if not the very same chalet, certainly one with the exquisite Mountain and Tradition service provided by Raphael and Jana :)

Simply superb!

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

What can I say, two seasons (winter and summer) in one week!!! I am always a bit nervous about booking a skiing holiday late in the season (late March this year) for obvious reasons. However, I knew that no matter what the weather brought we would be in good hands.

I've been to Les Gets 5 times now, with friends and with family but mostly with a combination of the two. Everyone who has been loves Les Gets. It is a lovely village with great skiing and, if you want to ski outside the resort, there is a huge ski area to explore and it is suitable for all abilities.

So, great village, great skiing and actually the proximity to Geneva airport is great (1 hour).

However, and I've been 5 times now, what really make it for me is the hosts. Raphael and Jana are suburb hosts and if they are not looking after you themselves, their staff are equally as capable. Chalet Novelin is in a great location, out of town but a 5 minute walk - less if you cut through the woods and ski down!

Staying in one of Raphael and Jana's chalets also takes the pain out of organising things, they sort ski passes, lessons, equipment (fitted in your chalet) and will do their very best to sort anything else you require. For example this year they organised a parapont for me and I really must thank Jana for the words of encouragement the night before!!

The food is, and always has been, great. Raphael is a pretty modest man but he knows how to construct a menu that keeps everyone happy.

So now it's great village, great skiing, great location, great accommodation, great hosts and great food.

There's only one thing missing. Value. It's not great, it's flipping' superb!!!

Amazing week in the Alps

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

What a fabulous week! The alpine resort of Les Gets in the summertime. What is usually a winter skiing destination turned out perfect for an active holiday. The chalet was very comfy with a hot tub and sauna and ideally situated for paragliding, mountain biking and rafting as well as being just a few minutes from the centre of the town. It was great to see Les Gets come alive as the Mountain Biking festival wheeled into town and transformed the sleepy summer town into a bustling hub of adventurers. Seeing the Alps in the summertime was beautiful - the views were breathtaking, and walking along the mountain trails was a real treat. The highlight of the whole trip was the amazing service from the chalet staff. They arranged all of the activities and were generous in every respect. And the food!! Raf and Dave served up delicious three course meals every evening and every morning were there to provide us with a really tasty and nutritious start to the day. I really can't say enough about what a great team they have. I'm going back!!

Catered Chalet Holiday

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

I have stayed in several Chalets over the years, in various parts of Europe, but this is the first time I have said I will definitely return. The friendly staff collected us from Geneva airport, and despite our 4 hr delay, there was no suggestion that we had inconvenienced them, they even had a meal waiting for us on arrival at the Chalet. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the meals were excellent, I defy anyone to find a chef as good as Raph! Some guests in the chalet had special dietary requirements, others were vegetarians. None of them were a hassle to Raph and his assistant Dave. Every meal was varied, healthy and made entirely from fresh produce. They were also very helpful with suggesting activities such as mountain biking, rafting, paragliding, golf, or simply walking and hiking. They were also more than happy to make telephone calls on our behalf to book these activities, so language barriers were no problem at all. After a physical day out in the mountains, what could be better than a soak in the hot-tub and relaxing in the steam room? If you are looking for a chalet holiday, be it summer or winter, look no further than Chalet Novelin.

A Summer Break at Chalet Novelin - UNBEATABLE QUALITY

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

For anyone contemplating a top-notch chalet experience, look no further than Chalet Novelin, Les Gets! The experience starts from the moment you step into the Arrivals area of the airport. Several members of our group were arriving on different flights, some of which were delayed by a few hours. Rather than simply allowing the early arrivals to lose a few hours of quality holiday time (the original plan was one pick-up for all guests), Raphael and Jana planned ahead and adjusted the collection times, meaning several trips to the airport for them, so that everyone got the most time out of their stay. Once in the chalet, I was most impressed by the cleanliness and organisation of the bedrooms and bathrooms, the outstanding breakfast and dinner menus (courtesy of Raphael and Dave) and the views across Les Gets from the chalet balcony. Any special requirements during the stay were accommodated without any fuss. I wholeheartedly recommend a holiday experience at Chalet Novelin, whether you are travelling as a group of friends, a family or just as an individual looking to get away from it all. I will be returning to this chalet with my young family as soon as possible.

Fantastic Summer Break

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This is the first time I have visited Chalet Novelin and the alps in the summer. My experience was second to none. Fantastic staff, food and service. The staff could not have been more helpful in recommending activities and arranged all that was necessary. The food was an unexpected highlight to the trip with Raf and Dave producing delicious dishes night after night. Let Gets is a great place to visit with easy access to a number of activities, mountain biking, rafting and paragliding. I highly recommend a stay.

wonderful springtime ski holiday

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

We have just returned from a fabulous week in the Chalet Novelin. Being the very last week of the season, we found ourselves alone in the whole chalet. Jana offered to upgrade us to the all-inclusive Chalet du Coin, but as our friends were around the corner in the Chalet Replan, we opted to stay put and are very glad that we did. We upgraded ourselves to a larger bedroom (just because we could, nothing wrong with our allocated room, but the space was a bonus) and revelled in the peace. The chalet is in a very quiet location, but only a 10 minute walk into town (downhill, longer on the way back up) or the free shuttle bus stops at the end of the road twice an hour, perfect! Lowri and Dave, our chalet hosts were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. We were fed so very well and made to feel so welcome, the afternoon cakes were made as we ate breakfast each day and laid out with the bread and homemade jams for us on our return from the pistes. Dave came in earlier on our day of departure to allow us to get away in good time. The lift to the resort of Avoriaz was a welcome treat as there was limited skiing to be had in Les Gets, perfect for us 'fair weather' skiers! A most excellent service from start to finish, we hope to return again, with the younger members of the family next time possibly.

Another great skiing holiday

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This was my sixth year staying at various chalets under Raphael and Janas management. And it was the usual friendly hospitality and warm and cosy chalets ,I've come to expect. They are , along with the chalet hosts there to make your holiday great and that's what this trip was. Not to mention that Les Gets is a delightful skiing village that I will continue to visit .

Chalet Novelin

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This was a return visit to Chalet Novelin for us, which is a thumbs up in itself as we very rarely visit the same ski resort twice, never mind stay in the same chalet! However we were not disappointed. Picked up promptly from Geneva airport and with skis and passes waiting for us, we were on the slopes within six hours of flying out of Glasgow. Not bad going. Admittedly we were VERY lucky with the weather conditions, but comfortable accommodation, delicious food, a very relaxing hot tub and delightful chalet host, Lowri, all made for a most relaxing and enjoyable week's holiday. Raph and Jana are extremely professional in their approach to everything they do, and it was a pleasure to catch up with them again. They probably could persuade us to visit Les Gets and Chalet Novelin once more!!

Very enjoyable stay

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This is the second time we have stayed at chalet Novelin, Jana & Raph run a great chalet company our chalet host Lawry looked after us really well. The chalet is a good size with plenty of room, big garage for all your ski gear with boot warmer. There is a cheep honesty bar with beer wine soft drinks. Breakfast is just the job,lovely cake for afternoon tea then a great dinner,The chalet is a minute walk to the ski bus or snow conditions permitting you can walk to the end of the cul de sack across bridge ski through trees on a path on to the run so well placed. We had a great short break 20 degrees so fantastic for lunch on the mountain but not the best for afternoon skiing. Ski passes waiting for us when we arrived, Raph picked us up from the airport these are few of the things that make for a really great ski holiday. A big thanks to Jana, Raph and Lawry .

Family ski

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

Chalet Novelin is just a short walk from the piste. The food was lovely and the kids selection was just as good as the adult meals. Lowri our chalet host made our stay very relaxed and she is a credit to the company! A few minor odd jobs around the chalet could do with attention but overall a good stay.

Wonderful welcome, our third year staying with Montagne et Tradition. Very short walk to the pistes, excellent food, and a cheap honesty bar well stocked with beer and wine. Hot tub and sauna in the basement much needed after a day skiing.

Relaxing ski trip with all the comforts of home

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

This is our third stay at Chalet Novelin and we have also stayed in Chalet Replan which is also run by Jana and Raph. In fact we are going back to Replan in 10 days..... Skiing is our favorite type of holiday and since we discovered this little gem we haven't been anywhere else. The snow has been great for the past few years so I know that helps, however the accomodation positioned near the slopes for skiing onto the piste, walking into the village or taking the bus is really good. The food is yum and if anything there is sometimes too much - although you can never get enough of a good thing. Raph is always inventing new menus and trying new things with a wide variety of food. If there is something you can't eat or don't like - there is always an alternative - althoughI would recommend trying whatever is put in front of you as Raph is very creative and does exciting things with food I wouldn't ordninarily choose. The wine, beer and drinks selection is good too and well stocked. The relaxed atmosphere each time we have stayed has been a great balance as the chalet hosts have all been different but manage to get a good balance with help, information giving and also knowing when to make themselves scarce..... The seating area in this chalet is one of the best, plenty of room to relax and read. The TV is good if you want to watch a DVD or some news or just the weather forecast. Jana and Rhaph have always collected and deliver us successfully from and to the airport in a minibus which is great for the short journey from Geneva. When you arrive at the chalet, Jana is waiting with a ski passes, and, just like Mr Ben when the shopkeeper appears, Matt arrives from the Ski Hire shop delivering and setting your ski's up so you could literally drop a bag and get on the slopes... a little hairy off piste through the woods to the slopes, but its all good - bend your knees and lean forward ! The welcome of delicious cakes and breads on your return from skiing is always welcome, as is the hot tub and sauna downstairs in the basement. The garage has a really good boot warmer - again welcomed in the morning and there is plenty of room to get your ski gear on, seats for resting inbetween putting on each boot and places to hang your jackets, helmets and gloves. The only constuctive critisism is that the bathrooms could do with a little TLC but the bathrooms are warm and there is always hot water and clean towels. The only other thing is that now I've finally left a review - everyone else will want to go !

The best place in Les Gets? Quite possibly.

TripAdvisor Review of Mountain and Tradition Chalet Holidays, Les Gets

I stayed in Chalet Novelin with some friends in March 2013 on a snowboarding holiday, and was very pleased with the high quality of service from Jana, Raph and their team.

On a snow holiday, there are lots of things that need to come together to make it a good trip. Weather, possibly number 1 on the list, but that's a bit outside of anyone's control. Then everything else - flights, transfers, accommodation, ski hire, lift passes, ski school, meals, drinks - Jana dealt with virtually everything (I booked my own flight...that's all!).

That doesn't make them unique though. Most places offer that service, in fact it's the staple of the package operators. The difference I found with Chalet Les Gets was the care and attention to detail. The transfer company was marvellous, the mobile snowboard hire man was incredibly helpful and accommodating, the lift pass and ski school voucher were there for me on arrival, lunch was available too as I had arrived early (OK, it was just bread and jam - but the homemade jams were out of this world, and it was all laid out ready). My first impressions were very good.

The chalet itself was wonderful. For location, it's a bit of a walk back from town, which I'd say is the only downside to the chalet. It's actually pretty close to the slopes, so getting out there in the morning is easy enough. But be warned, if you have a long day on the slopes and then a few aprés-drinks in town, you'll possibly curse the walk back. The free bus is an option, but it takes longer. The pay-off for this distance is the tranquillity and the peace, as the chalet is set in a lovely location. We enjoyed the use of the sauna and hot-tub most evenings. The rooms themselves were spacious, comfortable and warm, and the open plan living area helped us socialise with the other chalet guests. Dinner round the large dining table was fun and full of chatter.

Ah, the food. We spent most evenings at the dinner table agog. The quality was better than anything I think I've had on any holiday anywhere. Raph was responsible for the food, cleverly done too - our host Darcy would follow instructions for a large part of the meal, but the finishing touches, the special bits that gave it the extra wow factor, were made by Raph and delivered to the chalet for Darcy to apply. Simple, effective, delicious genius. Universally loved.

Our holiday went very smoothly. I've no doubt that in a large part that was down to Jana and the conscientious manner in which she dealt with every request from the guests.

I recommend Chalet Novelin very highly. Les Gets is not a small place, and there are plenty of companies vying for your business. But I think you'd have a tough job to find somewhere that looked after you as comfortably and sumptuously as Chalet Novelin.
