Summer in the Alps… really?!

If you’ve never been on a summer holiday to the Alps before, here are a few reasons why we think it’s so special:

Les Gets old town in the summerLovely weather: Imagine a really good British summer… for the whole summer!

Stunning scenery: Les Gets is a small, picturesque town, nestled between mountains just over an hour away from Geneva.

A hidden gem: Alpine ski resorts aren’t as popular in the summer months, so there aren’t the crowds which appear in winter – the town feels really laid back, and there’s plenty of opportunity to relax if you want a little peace and quiet, or to sign up to some activities.

There are also tennis courts and a volleyball court in Les Gets plus an adventure park – a course to challenge children and adults as you swing through the trees on ropes, ladders and with leaps of faith!

Play on the giant wooden boardgames that are put up in the town square every Tuesday, or have your hair and face painted and styled and have a go at wood cutting with real jigsaws (5 years plus). There are trampolines, bouncy castles, a carousel and of course the bubble lifts… all on our doorstep.

Let us take the strain: We can book all your activities – just put your feet up and unwind, then feast on a delicious 3-course evening meal prepared for you by Jim!
