Jane & Rob at Chalet Bluebell, Les Gets
Jane and Rob have lived and worked in Les Gets for 23 years and built an excellent reputation for personalised catered holidays with fantastic hospitality. They are very experienced and love ensuring that you have a memorable holiday at Chalet Bluebell.
As the seasons change in Les Gets, their excitement is clear as each month offers a new outdoor activity. Their love for the mountains and their outdoor life in the fresh alpine air is infectious and they never tire of sharing with their guests one of natures best kept secret resorts, Les Gets in the French Alps.
Jane, a farmers daughter from Yorkshire, is a qualified Intensive Care nurse and was an ex-surgical ward sister for 25 years. She moved out to France 23 years ago for a winter season and never went back!
A competent horsewoman for many years led her to try skiing in her 20's and she loved it. Now a very competent skier, as good on piste as off piste, she has climbed Mont Blanc twice and skied down the North Face, done the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt on skis and when she’s not showing her guests around the pistes and Portes du Soleil can often be seen skinning up a mountain to keep fit. Summer time she is either cycling, swimming or water-skiing, she really embraces her outdoor life in the Alps.
Robert was a builders merchant for many years in Cornwall, he reached 40 and decided to change direction in his life! He loved skiing and was a keen visitor to Morzine and The Portes du Soleil, so when he decided to take a chalet for one winter it was naturally in Les Gets that we ended up. Robert is a very good strong skier, has done The Haute Route twice, cycled the Route des Grandes Alpes to Nice and climbed Mont Blanc all on the wrong side of 50! An accident skiing 16 years ago, breaking his pelvis, led him to set up an airport transfer business and Ski Transfers.com was born.
Ski Blue Ridge was born 23 years ago and we still have guests coming back to Chalet Bluebell in Les Gets from our very first year, however the children that were then throwing their cocopops around the dining room are now challenging us on the snow and even coming on holiday with their children.
It's a great life we would not want to change it!!!
