Resort Attractions

There are a number of traditional crafts and activities available to guests at Les Gets including pottery sessions but while they may not appeal to everyone, few won’t be tempted to sign up for the weekly Courses at the resort’s Chocolate Workshop every Thursday afternoon. Anyone aged five and over can take part and you’ll be professionally equipped with hats, aprons and gloves and given the rank of ‘chef’s assistant’ and given tasks including cutting up biscuits, chopping nuts and mixing the dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids) as it warms in the bowl. Creations have included praline snowflakes, chocolate rocks and chocolate salami. Once the chocolates are made you’re free to take them away with you to taste at your leisure.

Shopping

Shoppers have a few dozen choices for a brief browse, but plenty of interesting options including the chocolaterie (see grocery shops) and the potters (see Activities). Along with the other food shops and the ski rental and retail outlets there’s a newsagents (Renoult) which also retails gifts and souvenirs along with four other household gift shops, one of which concentrating on all things Christmassy. You’ll also find the holiday essentials covered with a chemist (306 rue du Centre), optician and several hairdressers.
