Sadly due to the French governments latest announcement to close all non-essential open spaces the ski resorts are now closed. So that's winter season over for us at Chalet Bluebell. This was the only sensible decision to make to try to inhibit the further spread of Covid-19.
We would like to thank all of our fabulous guests and wonderful staff who have made this winter a memorable and great fun one. Stay safe and well everyone and we look forward to seeing you in the summer at Chalet Bluebell.
Winter in Les Gets! There is something for everyone in Les Gets. A fantastic resort for family and mixed ability groups with chairlifts and gondolas leaving from the village centre and whisking you up over tree-lined slopes giving magnificent views of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains and even Lake Geneva in the distance! It's easy to spend the day skiing together, sharing the lifts, choosing a run depending on your ability and then meeting up again at the bottom for a vin chaud or hot chocolate in one of the many mountain restaurants. Les Gets is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area, with more than 650 km of marked pistes spread over 14 valleys and about 1,036 square kilometres, The Portes du Soleil ranks among the two largest ski areas in the world.
"What can I say ? What an absolutely amazing week we had and all too soon it came to an end. From the start to the end you were absolutely amazing and could not do enough for us, you totally made our holiday the best it could be. It is you and Rob that make Chalet Bluebell stand out from all the rest. We cannot thank you enough for all that you did for us, the running around, the skiing and looking after our children giving us a break. Totally amazing hosts with 5 star treatment. We loved the time out with you skiing and going out of your way to host an amazing picnic. Our children absolutely love you both and the chalet. It is like their second home !!! All went off to school thoroughly depressed they weren't skiing this morning. Like I said from the moment we arrived it was like coming home. You and all your staff are truly one in a million nothing is too much trouble. Please pass our thanks onto everyone. Food was amazing many thanks to Alan. We're planning next years trip now!"

What Our Guests Say...
"From the moment you book to the moment you travel, Jane and Rob tend to your every need, the chalet has such a homely feel about it, and you are welcomed as soon as you arrive. The food served from breakfast to cake to evening meal is turned out at restaurant quality, andthe all the staff look after you very well.
Each day you can use the taxi service included from the chalet, they drop you off to collect your ski's, then once you have had your fantastic days skiing and choose a bar for apres, you can give them a call and they will collect you when you are ready, this is as good as a ski in and ski out chalet.
We are already talking about booking up again next year and have spoken to friends about using the chalet as well.
Thanks Jane and Rob."
