Family fun

Les Gets is a great place for children of all ages, and last week we took Lucas (who’s 14 months old) up on the Mont Chery cable car for a walk down to the village.

The little fella was very excited, and was particularly taken with the automatic doors!

Our walk took us along a track on the side of the mountain, through some forest and then onto the quiet road near Lasalle Farm. It was a good job we had an ‘off road’ pram as the forest path was quite steep and rooty!

We stopped for a bite to eat and a cup of tea and managed to acquire a canine friend, much to Lucas’ delight.

With beautiful views all the way down to the village, grazing cattle and Alpine meadows to our left and right we really enjoyed our relaxing decent.

In the pretty village of Les Gets which is looking very summery with so many flowering borders, we took the petit train up to the lake and playground on the other side of the valley.

A certain somebody had a whale of a time playing in the gravel!

Thankfully, when this ceases to amuse him there’s the children’s playground, climbing walls and paddling pool, the lake, nature walk and the adventure park for when he’s a bit older!

We then walked back to the village via the ‘piste’… somehow it’s much steeper when you walk it instead of going down on skis!
