Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From my wife...
We just returned from Les Gets and had the most fantastic time. Chalet Gentiane is absolutely beautiful with a lovely living area, comfy, clean and cosy rooms. There is a boot room with a large boot warmer as you arrive so ski gear is always dry and warm.
Central location, 5 mins from the lifts and 10m from ski hire shop.
Dave is excellent to deal with for booking and additional questions.
Food was absolutely delicious, cooked breakfast, afternoon cakes, evening canapés + 2 course meals, and most of all the chalet team were so fantastic. We were a mixed group of a family and friends and they looked after us so well and ensured our 2 yr old daughter had everything she needed.
Fantastic experience all round, would definitely recommend for a friends or family ski holiday.

We had a perfect stay here at the end of Jan, beautiful chalet in a perfect location just out of the centre and just a 10 min walk from Les Chevannes chair lift/gondola in ski boots! Quicker in normal footwear! Les Chevannes is also the centre of the village.
The chalet is lovely, bedrooms are cosy, and the open plan communal area is large and welcoming with the open fire being the focal point. We stayed with family and friends and our hosts Jo and Ray could not be faulted, to add also, their knowledge of the vast ski area was truly invaluable.
Cooked breakfast was served everyday, along with cereals, pastries and fruit. We had a different homemade cake each afternoon, then evening canapés followed by a 3 course meal along with beer and wine - perfect after a days skiing and a few at the Apres Ski bar! I have to add that the food was always amazing and there is always a consideration for any allergies or dislikes.
This was our second year at Les Gets, previously we’d stayed a bit further out of the village, but this year was far more convenient enabling easy access on foot to the whole village.
Would recommend Chalet Gentiane without a doubt and very much hope to return and stay here again next year!

I've just returned from my second thoroughly enjoyable visit to Chalet Gentiane in the Heart of Les Gets. Following last years trip, also Organised through the excellent "Summit Special" team, I had no hesitation choosing this Chalet, perfectly situated at the foot of the slopes and a gentle 2 minute stroll into the centre of the village. The hard working Summit Special Team ensured the Chalet was immaculately clean and the food tasted every bit as good as it looked. The friendly professionalism of Dave and Karen ensured that the trip was a fantastic success and I would HIGHLY recommend both Summit Special and the Les Gets area.

This truly is a beautiful chalet. The rooms, decor, heated boot room, lounge all exceptional.
Dottie’s cakes were great as we came in off the slopes and just enough to stave off the hunger til the delicious dinner. Nothing was too much and James and Dottie were so patient and playful with the children.
A great position in Les Gets and your ski equipment and lift pass can be ready for you when you arrive. Dave’s communication is efficient and it means you can relax knowing everything will be just great when you get there incl transfers should you need them.
Can’t wait to come back

We were a group of 15 looking for a fully catered chalet in Les Gets. Chalet Gentiane met the bill fabulously. The host and his staff provided for our every need from organising transfers to having our skis waiting for us in the ski hire shop just a few yards away from the chalet. Chalet Gentiane is quite unique as it has a very large lounge diner which can fit 16 people and possibly a couple more very comfortably. There are enough sofas for everybody to have a comfortable seat and it's possible to chat with everybody over dinner. This is a high quality chalet, everything in it looks new and it's very well equipped. It has English TV for those who need their daily news fix and a fabulous internet sound system. There is wifi through out the chalet and it's a good speed even with a large group hammering it. You can tell its been finished to work for a large group. There is heated boot rack as you enter plus space for everybody to store their skis. Although not all rooms have a full ensuite those that don't have virtually their own private bathrooms just across the hall way. The food was very good and the accompanying wine was very nice and plentiful. The chalet is very close to the centre of the village and right opposite the bus stop. Having done lots of chalet holidays with a reasonable sized group, this is by far the best as it has the space and the right quantity of everything which you don't tend to pick up on when browsing web sites.

Three families - all long term customers of a "family friendly" travel company that's seriously gone off the boil in recent years - stayed over Christmas 2015 after a recommendation.
WOW - the building looks like nothing from the street but opens out into two wings with areas that can privately accommodate separate families (or more as couples); a huge but cozy living/dining area and a separate place downstairs for kids to play safely (and quietly!).
Welcome from Brian, Laurie and Jeff was warm, food was excellent and generous, and no penny-pinching over drink either (who really thinks its sensible to run so many of these places now on the basis that it's now 18:47 not 19:01, so the beer is locked away??). All three were seasoned Alps people with years of experience and what's more some FRENCH (again, why is this an optional extra so often - the 12 year old monoglot really isn't a useful Chalet host, others take note). Behind the Wizard of Oz's curtain somewhere, Dave was constantly on hand to make and remake the transfer and pass bookings necessary because of the "green" Christmas this year.
All three families rebooked within a week of coming home. Doesn't that say it all?

We have had two holidays to this gorgeous Chalet and have had a fantastic experience each time. The chalet itself is beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Both sets of Chalet hosts have been brilliant - nice to see you back again Brian.
The food is excellent (the canapes and drinks before dinner are yummy, as are the teatime cakes.)
Les Gets itself is a lovely pretty village. It is a ski in-ski out resort with lots of bars and restaurants just minutes away from the Chalet, plus lots of little shops.
Summit Special give the place a personal touch and are very friendly and helpful when booking. They make the process very easy. Well done to the whole team. You won't regret booking here.

2nd year back at Chalet Gentiane and what a phenomale experience yet again! Top food, top location, top experience, top chalet hosts. It doesn’t get much better than this. No doubt about it we’ll be back. You won’t find a chalet which has the all rounder like this, you’re close to slopes, closes to the village (bars and restaurants) the food as well as the hosts and managers are exceptional. Special thanks to Dave and Karen for taking the time to give us that extra touch of customer service and all three chalet hosts have been wonderful. Yet again no faults, can’t wait to come back already!!

Great chalet with ample storage for all our bikes and kit. Chalet was clean, comfortable and everything we needed. You can roll down the hill into Morzine and with a bit of planning and with a mad fast road descent you can roll back into the chalet without the need to pedal.
