Vina Annapurna Restaurant and Wine Bar Open Year Round in Les Gets

The ski lifts may have closed in Les Gets just this weekend, but there’s still plenty going on in the area. Spring is a great time to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains before the resort gets busy for summer again. There are lots of great hiking and running trails to explore, the roads are nice and quiet for cycling, and while there aren’t many open bars and restaurants, you’ll be happy to know that our exclusive restaurant and wine bar, Vina Annapurna, is one of the only restaurants in Les Gets to stay open all year round.

The restaurant has a carefully selected menu made up of local, seasonal produce to create delicious modern variations of classic French and Savoyard dishes. These have gone down a storm with customers and homeowners – in particular the Annapurna chicken caesar salad! We’re also delighted to be able to offer a fine selection of wines and cocktails, and are very proud to have earned a five-star rating on Trip Advisor.

Throughout last summer and winter we also enjoyed regular jazz nights from Tania Ivanov and friends. These were a great excuse to get dressed up and enjoy some amazing live music from some of the area’s most talented musicians, alongside some delicious meals and drinks. Follow Vina Annapurna on Facebook for future jazz night info.

From mid-April until mid-June Vina Annapurna will be open Wednesday through to Sunday from 12:00 – 14:00 and then from 19:00 – 22:00.

One of the best things about spring and summer at Vina Annapurna is the lunch menu. Not only will there be a brand new spring menu with daily specials, you’ll also be able to enjoy a tasty three courses lunch (main course with garnish + salad + dessert of the day) for €17.50.

If you’re in Les Gets this spring there’s lots to look forward to; not only will you be able to kick back, relax and enjoy the mountains, you’ll also be able to enjoy some delicious meals and drinks at Vina Annapurna. See you in the spring!

Les Gets to host 2022 MTB World Championships

There’s a lot of great stuff going on in Alpine Lodges’ home resorts at the moment. Just a few months ago Courchevel announced it’ll be hosting the 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, and now Les Gets also has some exciting news; the resort will be hosting the 2022 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, as well as at least four World Cup races over the next three summers!

As a world-renowned mountain biking resort, Les Gets has a rich history of hosting mountain biking events. For the past three years, mountain bike world tour and competition series, Crankworx, has stolen the show, but the last time Les Gets hosted a world cup event was in 2002, followed by the World Championships in 2004. The standalone World Championship is a huge event in the mountain biking calendar, where the best riders in the world battle it out over two days and the fastest is crowned World Champion. The World Cup is a series of races that take place in different resorts across the world throughout the summer, with notable stop-offs including Fort William in Scotland, Vallnord in Andorra and Mont Sainte Anne in Canada. At the end of the series, the winner is the person who has gained the most points over the season.

The UCI Mountain Bike World Championships and the Word Cup races each include downhill and cross country races, so there’s something for everyone, but in Les Gets we’re predicting downhill will be the real crowd pleaser. Both events will see keen mountain bikers from all over the world flock to Les Gets to watch the action and ride its world-famous trails.

Here are the provisional World Cup race dates over the next four summers:
  • 13th – 14th July 2019: Downhill and Cross Country World Cup races.
  • 19th – 20th September 2020: Downhill and Cross Country World Cup Finals.
  • 2021: Les Gets is currently a candidate to organise and host the Downhill and Cross Country World Cup Finals.
  • 24th – 28th August 2022: Downhill and Cross Country WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!


That’s right. Just next summer the Les Gets will be filled with some of the world’s best mountain bikers and keen spectators in what promises to be an action-packed few days of mind blowing riding. We’re sure there will be lots of action off the trails as well; those mountain bikers aren’t often known for their partying but no doubt Les Gets will be putting on some spectacular evening events, live music acts and big brand bike tests. We can’t wait to see what the resort puts together in terms of race tracks, either.

If you’re interested in a new home in Les Gets, we’re currently reserving off-plan in our latest Les Gets development, Kinabalu, and we have a small number of completed apartments available in our Annapurna residence, where home owners will benefit from an in-house spa and bistro. Get in touch with our Les Gets office for more details.

What’s new in Les Gets for winter 2018/19?

It’s September which means it’s officially time to start getting excited about winter! Les Gets is one of our favourite resorts for its picture postcard village feel with family-friendly ski-in / ski-out access, but it’s far from a sleepy ski town. Les Gets really comes to life in the winter, with exciting events for adults and kids alike, some incredible skiing and exceptional bars and restaurants. There’s always something happening, be it a new event, a new restaurant or updates to the ski area. Here’s all the new additions we’ve got to look forward to this winter.



A Folie Douce for the Portes du Soleil

Part of the massive Franco-Swiss Portes du Soleil ski area, Les Gets is just a short ski away from Avoriaz, which this winter will be the home of a brand new Folie Douce. Providing the world’s most iconic mountain restaurant experience, at the Folie Douce you can expect daily live music, cabaret shows, an electric atmosphere, and top-notch food and drink.

New Opening Dates

Les Gets is always one of the first Portes du Soleil resorts to offer summer mountain biking, opening its bike park at weekends from the end of May, and this year it’s taking the sentiment to winter. Providing we have the snow conditions, Les Gets will open at the weekends from the 24th November, which is even earlier than the Portes du Soleil’s highest and most snow-sure resort, Avoriaz. Fingers crossed for early snowfalls!



Winter Lounge Music Festival

The Les Gets Lounge Music Festival is a cool and casual music festival that takes place in the village over two weeks in August. This March will see the first ever Winter Lounge Music Festival, featuring a range of genre-spanning musical performances and intimate concerts every day throughout the town’s bars and restaurants. You’ll have a huge range to pick from every day, making for excellent après sessions and atmospheric dinners out; the perfect excuse to get out and enjoy the spring weather!

Vina Annapurna’s First Winter

Our first restaurant in Les Gets, Vina Annapurna, is busy preparing for its first winter. The restaurant has been open all summer, serving a delicious menu created with the best regional and seasonal products and winter will be no different. Located in our prestigious Annapurna residence in the centre of Les Gets, this winer Vina Annapurna will be offering delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as a fantastic wine and cocktail selection. We can tell you the food is absolutely incredible and we’re really excited for you to try it!


Vina Annapurna offers an incredible selection of regional and seasonal produce.


Les 100 Ciels d’Hiver

Another summer event transitioning to winter, Les 100 Ciels is a week-long collection of wellness-themed workshops, seminars, classes and treatments that encourages us all to relax and take care of ourselves. This winter, Les 100 Ciels d’Hiver will be bringing the same concept to the snow. Taking place at the end of January, there will be lots of wellbeing options to choose from, taking place both on and off the snow.

New Winter E-Bike Tracks

As winter e-biking grows in popularity, Les Gets is getting ahead of the trend. This winter the resort plans to open a permanent ‘fat bike’ track between the summit of Mont Chery and the alpages of Mont Caly. Perfect for everyone from keen mountain bikers to complete first timers, electric fat bikes (as you can probably guess) have fat tyres that grip the snow and an electric motor that makes those uphill sections much more manageable. Look out for free winter e-bike demos and taster sessions at the foot of the pistes throughout the winter.



A New Piste

Les Gets is always working on making its ski area more accessible so as many people as possible can explore the resort. This winter will see the opening of a new blue piste in the Perrieres sector, which starts at the Perrieres car park at the bottom of town. The new blue run will allow skiers and snowboarders to easily return to the base of the Express Perrieres chairlift, which will not only open up new possibilities to intermediates and beginners, but also disperse piste traffic, and provide easier access to the car park and residences in the Perrieres area.



If any of this sounds appealing to you and you think you’s like to invest in a new home in Les Gets, we’re currently reserving off-plan in our new Les Gets residence, Kinabalu. Kinabalu is a centrally-located collection of one- to six-bedroom apartments with an in-house spa, restaurant and concierge service. Get in touch with our team in Les Gets for more details.

10 Unmissable things to see and do this summer in Les Gets

Les Gets is the perfect example of a small mountain town that’s grown to attract visitors and residents from all over the world, but still retains its charming Alpine atmosphere. While already well-known winter destination, Les Gets’ summers are starting to catch the eye of more and more mountain bikers, hikers and families as a summer holiday haven as well. Namely because of its incredible array of events and attractions over the warmer months. Here’s our pick of the best.



1 – Crankworx Les Gets, 20th – 24th June

Crankworx is one of the main events of the European mountain biking calendar and it’s definitely a spectacle not to be missed! Kicking off the summer season with a bang, the week sees the world’s best riders come together for a week of competition, including slopestyle, downhill and Speed & Style, which is always amazing to watch. Visitors can also enjoy testing out bikes from all the major brands, alongside live music and parties in the evenings and of course, lots of riding and other MTB-themed goings on.



2 – The International Mechanical Music Festival, 21st – 22nd June

Did you know one of Les Gets’ main attractions is that it’s home to the Museum of Mechanical Music? This unique museum holds a fascinating collection of working devices documenting the colourful history of automated music before the birth of tapes and CDs. It’s also why Les Gets hosts the International Festival of Mechanical Music every other summer. The weekend sees mechanical music enthusiasts get together in the town centre and display their beautifully handcrafted musical devices to the public. Visitors will also have access to demonstrations, concerts and workshops that will provide a fun and exciting insight into musical history.

3 – Pass’Portes du Soleil, 29th June – 3rd July

Pass’Portes du Soleil is one of the biggest weekends of the summer across all the resorts in the Portes du Soleil, and anyone can take part. Thousands of entrants every year will spend a weekend riding mountain bikes around the twelve resorts of the PDS, something which can only take half a day on skis but is a little more tiring on a bike! A great way to explore the area and challenge yourself, the event also includes a kids’ trail and a walking trail, as well as a salon where you can test lots of different bikes, so there’s something for everyone.



4 – Lounge Music Festival, 6th – 18th August

Now in its eighth year, the Lounge Music Festival is fast-becoming a Les Gets institution. A laid-back and relaxed two weeks of music using the bars, restaurants and outdoor spaces of the village as its venue, this is a great chance to discover a huge range of new artists. Performers range from local bands and singers to groups from all over the world – and it’s all free. The Lounge Music Festival always syncs up with a performance from a big French star; this year it’s Slimane, winner of the fifth series of The Voice France.

Nestled among the pistes and bike trails of Les Gets is a charming little swimming lake that’s perfect for family picnics and sunbathing.

After all, who wouldn’t want to play a few holes with the added bonus of beautiful mountain views, balmy temperatures and maybe even a few marmots on the green?



8 – Hiking for Everyone

Les Gets has a huge range of hiking trails and is linked to the massive Portes du Soleil area by the expansive lift network. Beautiful wildflowers, getting to share the footpaths with friendly Alpine cows and incredible panoramic views of Mont Blanc are just a few of the things that make hiking in Les Gets such a pleasure. Trails range from the family-friendly to more extreme scrambles, so there’s something for everyone.
