Les Gets' strong agricultural roots have attracted some talented chefs to the area, who love to take advantage of the incredible local produce. There's an excellent choice of around 60 restaurants, and the standard is generally very high. Look forward to lots of typical mountain food, as well as some fine dining experiences.
• La Fruitière des Perrières – Cute, quirky décor makes you feel at home here, and the cheese and dairy products are all made on site so you must try the fondue, raclette, or reblochonnade. For dessert, try the homemade cottage cheese with a choice of toppings.
• St Laurent, Hotel Le Labrador – A must for foodies, this is one of the best in the area and has been awarded a Gault Milau toque.The big menu includes loads of local produce, and there's also several set menus to choose from.
• O Kariboo – No-frills fast food, but some of the best burgers in the Alps - try the Les Gets burger and you'll be talking about it for weeks to come.
• La Grande Ourse – Fine dining in the most high-end mountain restaurants in the area. Try the signature dish of lobster, scallop and bacon tartiflette, or opt for classic beef bourguignon or confit duck.
• La Péla – A lively chalet with a family-friendly atmosphere, offering a classic menu of steak, fish, fondue, raclette and brasserade - plus incredible desserts, like the trio of crème brûlées, tiramisu or chocolate fondant.
• Changabang (top of Les Prodains cable car) – Stop here to sample the best burgers and wraps in resort, cooked to order and perfect with a side of spicy curly fries.
• Chez Nannon (Troncs Express chairlift) – Follow the enticing scent of bubbling Reblochon cheese to this restaurant, where hearty Savoyard fare awaits.
• La Paika (Vorosses piste) – This old wooden hut is just the place to wile away a couple of hours enjoying the lovely views and enormous prawns or steaks cooked on the open grill.
Les Gets is a resort full of character, but you'll find that because of all the chalets, most people stay inside after dinner. If you want a bit of lively atmosphere, it's best to head to a mountain hut on your way down the slopes.
• Bar Bush – One of the longest established bars in town. It's a little bar, popular with the Brits, but it always has a great atmosphere. There's a quiz once a week and regular themed nights too.
• L'Après Ski Bar – Next to the tourist office, this is a great place for slopeside après. Various bands play twice a week and there's a lovely sun terrace for you to enjoy the last of the afternoon rays.

From Les Gets you can access up to 300 slopes and 30 snowparks in the Portes du Soleil ski area. When you've tired out the French resorts of Avoriaz, Morzine and Châtel, make your way to Switzerland for more fantastic slopes in this fantastic ski region. As it's the furthest resort from the French-Swiss border, you'll have to make your way through Morzine and Avoriaz to get there - make sure you give yourself enough time to get there, explore and come back. Once in Switzerland, make the most of the quiet, relaxed slopes that spread across the mountainside above the tiny villages of Champoussin and Les Crosets and stop for some lunch consisting of cheese fondue or raclette.
