Great location, roomy apartment with private sauna. Self catering or catered!
We are two families who, after 20 years of skiing together have at last decided to buy a property in what we believe to be the best location for Winter and Summer holidays. With easy transfer time from the Airport and perfect location near the heart of Les Gets, we believe that we have furnished La Taniere with all the necessary amenities to cater for the best family holiday !

Why email@example.com chose Les Gets
We love skiing in the Porte du Soleil which is the biggest linked ski area in Europe covering two countries and twelve ski resorts and you can access the whole region from Les Gets. So it is never boring for the average skier. Our children also LOVE Les Gets especially The Grand Cry Territory which is a play area themed on native American Indians. It features two slopes with raised bends and a series of bumps. There are friendly 'native-entertainers' who offer to face-paint all young visitors and a Wigwam with traditional games and music. There are treasure hunts every Friday and an Easter egg Hunt on Skis every Easter. We are also aware that not everyone wants to ski. Les Gets caters extremely well for non skiers with a good selection of activities available including Tobogganing, Dog Sledging, Snowshoeing. Also the village has a 10 pin bowling alley, Cinema, Beauty Salon & Wellness Centre, an Outdoor Iceskating rink flood lit at night and the famous museum of mechanical music.
What makes this Apartment unique
La Taniere's location is second to none! We chose this apartment (after viewing many) for it's fabulous position directly on the main slope (GENUINE ski in and out !) and its spacious living space. Ski school is a 2 min ski away and is perfect for children and beginners alike. The sauna is an added luxury after a good day's skiing! We can offer a catering service, a meet & greet service, and can have ski passes delivered on arrival. We can even supply contacts for discounted ski hire and airport transfers. (please ask for more details) In the summer the Alps are a hidden treasure! La Taniere has the benefit of a fenced heated swimming pool right outside the door and a well maintained tennis court, both freely available to guests. It is also but a 5 min walk across the slope to a swimming lake with additional fun activities (see our website). For mountain bikers, Les Gets is a dream! and we provide secure bike storage.

Summer family holiday in the Alps
Les Gets is a very nice area if you like an outdoor holiday - hiking, mountain biking, lake swimming etc. The apartment has a pool and tennis court right next to it, which we enjoyed using. The living area of the apartment is very spacious and comfortable with a big dining table, WIFi, comfy sofas, a good selection of DVDs and books. The kitchen is functional with a dishwasher and full oven - much better than your average ski apartment (but bring baking trays, a chopping board and microwaveable dishes!).
The layout is slightly strange with one double bedroom having no windows and the bathrooms down a very steep set of spiral stairs. We were a family of 4 so could avoid using the windowless room! Luckily they have installed an upstairs toilet (but it is very noisy so not ideal at night....)
All in all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
Perfect place and location.
So glad we chose this property. It’s in the perfect location with stunning views. The owner helped us all along the way to make it a truly memorable holiday. Thanks!
Glad you enjoyed it - you'd be welcome back anytime!
Cozy well planned apartment in perfect location
We had a fabulous family get together at la Taniere, the cozy apartment has everything you need & is right on the slope so once you have your kit it really is ski in, ski out! We used ‘Chalet Kitchen’ who delivered boxes of great value & very tasty food every morning, & most evenings we did the 10/15 stroll down into the village for a beer - perfect!! Bit if a slog back up the hill but worth it! Already planning a return visit next year!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and we’d be delighted to have you back!
Lovely apartment and very lovely owner. The kids loved being so close to the piste. Would definitely go back.
Excellent modern apartment
Great modern apartment with excellent living space. The ski in ski out was fantastic for the competent skiers in our group. The beginners took the free bus to the village every morning for ski lessons which worked out very well & were able to do the ‘ski in’ by day 3.
Great location near QG restaurant.
Lovely apartment and great living space. Excellent location for good skiers as it’s a ski in ski out. Even the beginners amongst us were able to ski in after 3 days of lessons.
We used the free bus to get to the village in the morning for the skiing lessons. Fantastic holiday!
One hours drive from Geneva our apartment is situated on the ground floor of 'Residence Le Grizzli' where you can ski from the back door down the blue piste approximately 400m to the main lifts and ski school meeting points (ESF & 360° ski schools).
Alternatively in the summer, a short walk from the apartment (4 to 5 minutes) is a wonderful swimming lake, adventure park and horseriding. There are a host of marked trails all over the area, which makes the apartment a fantastic base for enjoying the wonderful scenery on foot.
Other activities in the village include an 18 hole golf course with magificent views of Mont Blanc, cycling, parapenting, white water rafting, canyoning and deval karts (down hill go karts).
