Short Breaks FAQ

How do the dates work?

The week is normally split into two parts - Sunday to Thursday (4 nights, one is staff day off) and Thursday to Sunday break (3 nights). The price of each one is the same, so if you've the flexibility to do it the Sunday to Thursday gets you an extra day for your money!

What about Arrival / Departure?

We are only an hour's drive from Geneva Airport, so you can ski both on your arrival and departure day! Let us know your flight details and we will arrange airport transfers to conntect with your arrival and departure.

Can I arrive early?

If you are arriving early that's absolutely fine. You can come into the catered chalets, drop your bags, get changed, then head on out to the slopes! We just ask for your understanding that their may be some departing guests still around as well.

Can I leave late?

If you are departing late that's also fine. We will gladly look after your bags for you, and find somewhere for you to have a cup of tea and get changed after your day's skiing, but you'd probably not be able to go back into the rooms as they would be full of arriving guests!

Jana's organisation made everything really easy meaning we were on the slopes within two hours of arriving at the airport...

My weekend Skiing Break was superb in Chalet Coin. A warm welcome was had on arrival by Lloyd and Kat who looked after my sister and I extremely well. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Magnificent breakfasts, delicious tea, and the most sumptuous evening dinner, with everything you could wish for in a 5 star accommodation.

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.

This was our first visit to chalet du coin. We normally stay for a week in Morzine but this time wanted a short break for myself, son in law and grandson. It was a very successful stay. The chalet is close to the main lift and we were lucky with excellent snow.

Booked really late for this short break but from the moment we spoke with Jana all we needed was catered for. We arrived early on the Sunday and were offered breakfast by Lloyd and Katrina (we weren't expecting this), our ski passes were delivered by Lowri and we were on the slopes by midday. Definitely 5* comfort, food and hospitality.

We had a wonderful short break in the Chalet du Coin last week! Amazing dinners by chef Hannah, enjoyed every bit and bite of it, great wines to go with the delicious food. Rooms are nice and kept perfectly clean, the Hot Tub and sauna are perfect to relax after a long day on the slopes. In short: a 5* experience that we would absolutely recommend to anyone travelling to Les Gets! Hope to return here someday.

My wife and I had an excellent 5-day stay in this lovely chalet between 15-19 March. The customer service was excellent from Raph, Jana and Lowri and they made our stay all the more enjoyable. 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.

Les Gets is a great resort for a long weekend - easy transfers from Geneva and plenty of varied skiing. And Chalet Novelin is in an ideal spot and brilliantly run. The chalet is cosy and homely. 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.

We had a great long weekend (Thursday to Sunday) for 8 ladies. Quick transfer from Geneva so we got in three and a half days skiing! The chalet is lovely - well presented and clean with all you need, including comfy bathrobes.

Just returned from an amazing 4 days skiing in Les Gets. Chalet Novelin was a really lovely place to stay, clean, cosy and Lowri our hostess extended a very warm welcome. Food was delicious, plentiful and wholesome. Nothing too much trouble and she had loads of tips and local knowledge about the best places to ski.

An amazing place for a short break, or even a longer break if only we had had the time. Wish we could have stayed longer. The chalet was beautiful and Lowri who looked after us was great. Fab cooking and we just had a fantastic time. A hot tub and sauna to luxuriate in at the end of the day too.Would go back tomorrow if I could!

Six ladies have just had a short break at Chalet Novelin and had the best time. From the pick up service at the airport until the return journey. The warm welcome you receive on arrival lasts throughout your stay. The food, location and staff are all fabulous.
