The Auberge, located on the main route between Taninges and Les Gets, has a fascinating history. During the Second World War, it was used to hide those fleeing to Switzerland.
Currently, the owners run the business on a part-time basis, renting out the 4 middle floor bedrooms during the winter season. These bedrooms are all ensuite and fully renovated to a high standard. The 5th guest bedroom is located in the separate barn conversion.
Two further double bedrooms are located on the top floor.
With Les Gets just five minutes away, at just 1 800 € per square metre, makes this property a very affordable business proposition.
1.) Les Portes du Soleil (5 min drive): The closest access point is from just outside Les Gets. Les Portes du Soleil is one of the largest linked ski areas in the world with 12 stations that lie between France and Switzerland including Avoriaz, Châtel, Les Gets, Morzine, Morgins, Champéry, Torgon, Les Crosets and Champoussin in the Val-d’Illiez.
2.) Praz de Lys–Sommand (10 min drive): The small ski station at Praz de Lys is behind Avonnex on the way to Les Gets and provides a delightful alternative to its more famous neighbours. Located an altitude of 1500m, with a top station of 2000m, it has an enviable snow record for a lesser known resort. The resort has Alpine skiing and extensive cross country skiing. In summer, the hiking is fabulous.
3.) The Grand Massif (15 min drive): The closest access point is from the cable car in the village of Morillon. The ski area consists of Samoëns, Les Carroz, Morillon, Sixt Fer à Cheval and Flaine and has 265km of pistes. With a top station of 2500 metres, mostly north-facing slopes, and close proximity to Mt Blanc and the microclimate it generates, this is one of the Haute-Savoie’s most snow-sure ski resorts.
This area is just as popular in the summer with numerous activities and festivals all season long. Check out the Les Gets and Praz de Lys tourist sites for more information.
