Chalet Joux Verte ...
You'll feel right at home at this beautifully presented chalet, located off the Chavannes road only 1km above the charming ski resort of Les Gets and with easy access to the slopes.
Set in delightful landscaped gardens overlooking Mont Chery, Chalet Joux Verte sleeps up to eight people in four bedrooms with four bath/shower rooms. It's a great choice for a family group, with badminton, petanque and croquet in the garden, and a mezzanine floor with two double bedrooms and a TV room which children will love!
The ski bus stops just 40m from the chalet, so if you don't want to drive, you can simply forget about it for the rest of your stay. You will love the fabulous views of Mont Chery and the mountains from the huge sunny terrace. Unwind in the hot tub and enjoy a sauna at the end of a long day on the slopes.
Les Gets has a good choice of restaurants, shops and bars, as well as a packed itinerary of entertainment in summer and winter. Enjoy Alta Lumina within walking distance of the chalet, an enchanted night walk beyond the mountains.
About the property ...
Accommodation at Chalet Joux Vert is set over three floors. As you enter on the ground floor, you'll find two double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and the other with a bathroom. There is a sauna with a shower room, a separate WC, and a utility room with a washing machine, dryer, second fridge and freezer.
After a day on the slopes you will access the chalet via the garage, which contains boot warmers, a ski rack and plenty of hanging space. The children will love the small multi-sports table in here too!
The main living area is on the next floor. The modern kitchen has everything you need to rustle up a hearty meal after an energetic day in the mountains, including two ovens and a large hob on an island unit. An oval dining table with comfy leather chairs has plenty of room for you all to eat together.
A cosy L-shaped sofa is positioned to make the most of the views, or if you'd rather, get together to watch a film. There are plenty of cushions and throws as well as a fireplace, to make sure everyone is warm and cosy. There's room for three in the study area, just in case you need to catch up with some work while you're away.
Doors open from the living area on to the huge furnished terrace, which wraps around three sides of the house - there are lots of areas where you can soak up the sun, admire the fabulous views or perhaps enjoy a barbecue. Petanque, badminton and croquet sets are provided for your enjoyment on the extensive lawns.
The mezzanine floor is perfect for children – the two bedrooms can be arranged with twin or kingsize beds, and there's a shared shower room. There's also a TV room under the eaves, with beanbag seats and room to play. It’s a great place for adults to hang out as well and watch a movie!
About the area
With the ski bus almost on your doorstep, and the village, pistes just 1km away from Chalet Joux Verte, you can forget about driving for the whole of your holiday,
Les Gets and the neighbouring resorts of Morzine and Avoriaz are in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, which has 12 resorts spanning the French/Swiss border. In fact, you can ski in to Switzerland, but be warned, only the most accomplished skiers should tackle the Swiss Wall - a huge mogul field which is classified as an orange route - too hazardous for a black! But with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.
If you're not a skier, there's plenty going on in Les Gets, and the nearby resort of Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which are often host to ice hockey matches, and the local cinema shows films in English.
The more adventurous might like to try snowmobiling or ice-climbing on some of the area's frozen waterfalls, or discover the area in a more sedate manner on a sleigh ride. Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park in Morzine offers a variety of activities for all ages.
As spring comes to the Portes du Soleil, a whole new range of activities opens up to visitors. Lush green slopes replace the pistes, and the mountains become a haven for hikers, bikers and thrill-seekers. Take a picnic, and make a day of it! The lifts will transport you and your bike up the mountains, leaving you to come back down at your leisure.
For a change of scene, visit the nearby resorts of Morzine/Avoriaz or the village of Montriond and its lake, which is perfect for a gentle stroll and a picnic, or perhaps a bit of kayaking.
Les Gets and Morzine have earned the Famille Plus status for their excellent childcare and entertainment, so this area is a great choice for young families.
There are superb water parks in the town and in neighbouring Avoriaz, as well as two summer sledging runs, while the Indiana adventure park has a range of assault courses to suit all ages. Golfers will find excellent courses in Les Gets and Avoriaz.
Other activities in the area include climbing, rafting, via ferrata, canyoning, mini-golf, quad bikes, and fishing. If all this sounds like hard work, you could always just relax on the terrace, in the garden or unwind in the hot tub.
If you like think Chalet Joux Verte would be the perfect base for your next mountain holiday, why not check your dates against our availability calendar? We can hold up to two weeks for you for 24 hours, with no obligation, to give you a little time to make up your mind.

The OVO Network Review
“Perfect base for a family group”
Chalet Joux Verte is a three-storey chalet for up to eight guests, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Less than a mile from the popular ski station of Les Gets, it's a great choice for a family group who want to explore the Portes du Soleil area, whatever the time of year. There's great skiing nearby as well as a great choice of biking and walking trails, and if you don't fancy cooking, there are restaurants and bars just a short walk away - but the road can get quite busy.
The chalet is perfectly arranged for a family group, with two bedrooms on the ground floor and two more on the mezzanine floor. These two bedrooms are perfect for children - they share a bathroom and there's also a great TV/games room where they can do their own thing.
But with the living room on the floor below, it's easy to keep an eye on them.
Younger guests will love the garden too - it's mostly flat and lawned, and with badminton, petanque and croquet provided, there's plenty to keep them busy. In the winter it's a great place for snowball fights!
Chalet Joux Verte is also close to one of Les Gets' most exciting family attractions - Alta Lumina. Follow a light-filled trail through the forest, tracing the adventures of a travelling music maker - it's a really magical night out for young children.
We love the homely atmosphere that the owners have created at this delightful chalet, and we're sure that it's one guests will return to year after year!

From the owner
Hello, and welcome to Chalet Joux Verte!
Jackie and I have been holidaying in Les Gets most summers now for the past 20 years, with our two children (now adults) It was always a vague dream to one day own our own chalet - and to our amazement that dream is now a reality.
As soon as we set eyes on this chalet, during a brief respite from the pandemic in 2020, we fell in love. Originally built in 1976, it was recently beautifully restored, extended and enhanced over a four-year period, by the previous Dutch owner, into the lovely property it is today.
We love the quiet location off the Chavannes road. We can walk up or down to everything we want, but for less energetic days, the town provides e-bikes and buses almost to the doorstep.
It was important to us that we chose a chalet with walks straight from the front door, yet which was also within walking distance (in summer at least) of restaurants. We also wanted trails of different grades, so this place ticked all the boxes.
We can explore new trails using the chairlifts and cable cars that abound here in Les Gets and Morzine. In fact, with an early start (and a good breakfast) Switzerland is just a few chairlifts away (don’t forget your passport!).
We recommend getting a Portes du Soleil Multipass for excellent value on the lifts in summer.
Chalet Joux Verte is in a great location for skiing, with the Chavannes piste is just a few minutes walk. You can then ski down to the Chavannes Express chairlift to access the Morzine/Avoriaz slopes.
Alternatively, the Folliets chairlift is only 1km up the Route des Chavannes, or 1.5km beyond Folliets is the cluster of lifts at Les Chavannes.
The free bus (navette) takes you directly to these lifts too, as well as the other Les Gets slopes such as Les Perrieres and Mont Chery.
We’ve always been hikers and cyclists - and that’s what has drawn our family back to Les Gets, summer after summer. If you are a road cyclist, like me, you will love challenging yourself on the nearby cols.
And if you are a mountain biker, well then you are actually in heaven…
For relaxation, we have tried to provide lots of indoor and outdoor games, different places to sit in the garden, on the terrace, or in the lovely new hot tub. There is always something to watch - clouds drifting through the mountains; paragliders descending and eagles gliding overhead.
In the darker evenings, the stars of the Milky Way shine directly above the terrace.
This place is super special for us, and we are pleased to share it with you. We very much hope that you will enjoy your time at the chalet as much as we do.

“Very nice chalet, well located!”
Very nice chalet, well located (5 min walk to the slopes or with the shuttle bus at 50m). We had a great stay with all the facilities available in the property.

“Even better in real life than in the photos!”
The chalet is magnificent, we had a great stay there, clean, well appointed, close to the ski slopes, and with great attention on our arrival. We highly recommend the Chalet Joux Verte!

What a beautiful stay in chalet Joux Verte, we couldn't recommend this property enough. Everything had been well thought through to ensure we enjoyed our stay, including a smooth arrival process, wonderful facilities such as the hot tub and the easy access to the slopes. We couldn't have asked for anything else, thank you Brian! We will be back soon.

“Marvellous and unforgettable holidays”
Where to start... Chalet Joux Verte is an absolute hidden gem! It really is a spectacular property offering surreal facilities and is located in beautiful settings. Everything was spotless and we found the rates to be really fair for such a wonderful holiday. We received great services from Brian the property manager who welcomed us warmly and was readily available when we needed help, he was kind and responsive at all times. During our time in Les Gets we enjoyed beautiful hikes, relaxing in the hot tub and cooking typical Savoyard meals in the wonderful fully equipped kitchen. We are already planning to come back again soon, thanks again to our host for a wonderful stay.
