Hotel Christiania

Les Gets

The Christiania is back! We are proud to have an old fave of ours back for summer ‘24 and being offered at a great ‘Intro Price’ for the first 100 bookers. We run the Christy as a warm and welcoming hotel for mountain-loving Brits and active families in summer, but as an MTB Centre - it has a few extra touches for the bikers among you.

The Christy is in the centre of Les Gets, a buzzing family resort next door to Morzine and (arguably) the best bike resort in the Alps. Our hotel is by the bike and walking trails, the lifts, the bars and shops. It’s geared towards families and alpinists who have biking at the top of their agenda - so you’ll find the ‘free activities’ we include will favour the bikers among you!.!

If you don’t want all of our inclusive activities, why not save with Active Lite?

Inclusive activities

You’re not just staying with us for a week (or two) - you’re part of our club and here for new adventures. The Christy is the perfect base, with more than enough (free) activities to sink your teeth into; and a dedicated team of fun, energetic and creative individuals (our staff!), to make it all happen.

Once you’re ready to head out (with or without the kids!) our Activity Team will hook you up with all the fun and adventure you can handle: You can make use of our free Specialized bikes and we’ll you’ll also get a free E-Bike excursion (use of our E-bikes for a day). Then there’s our complimentary guided bike ride, which is a professionally guided ride using our hardtail bikes or your own full-susser’ - so why not bring your own bike along (we offer a free transfer for bikes) or rent one in resort? We offer rides for newbies and rides for intermediates and progressive riders. They’re great if you are new to biking and using the lifts or if you’re a more seasoned rider looking for a fun ride in company, with nothing too extreme.

We’ll also help you get wet with a free session at the Wi-Bit Inflatable course or paddleboarding on lac Montriond. And also a free sesh of Whitewater rafting which is a highlight of the week…Nothing breaks the ice with your fellow guests like hurtling down a river in a Whitewater raft, right?

We also include a free pedestrian lift pass (25 lifts) for all guests, a Multipass for resort activities and access to 850km of tracks and trails. There’s more than enough activities to keep you busy all week and our Active Reps have lots of itinerary ideas for a great half day or full day out, whether it's on two-wheels or two-feet. Ask them for our Route Cards for some fantastic bike ride and walking route suggestions when you arrive.

If you’re keen to go biking then grab a bike from our hotel racks (they’re free to use) and go for a two-wheeled adventure. You’ll love the resort trails which wind their way along stunning scenery, but if you’d like to hit the high altitude bike trails with their banks, berms and bumps - then pay a little extra for a biking lift pass and hire a full suspension bike to explore these mountain routes. Lift passes are from €5 per uplift, and these trails are suited to confident intermediate riders ages 10+. If you’re in need of a breather, then pre-book (before departure) our inclusive Active Kids Club (4-12yrs) as spaces are limited. They are located at a nearby hotel, so you can drop your kids off and let them go wild as they meet other kids and try new experiences with our childcare leaders.

About Hotel Christiania

The ‘Christy’, as we affectionately call it, is a warm and welcoming hotel operated exclusively by us for mountain- loving Brits and families in summer. It’s right in the resort centre, just 50 metres from the main Chavannes lifts and trails, and a short walk from the lovely lake at Les Gets. We run it with a team of fantastic staff who are here to give you an unforgettable holiday. In fact, they’re so good they won an award for their outstanding service recently.

We run the hotel as an exclusive home-from-home for alpine enthusiasts and guests who like to bike as their main activity. However, the hotel is just as suited to alpinists, walkers and families looking for a rounded break in this glorious family resort.
If your children want to blow off some steam then our inclusive Active Kids Club is right at hand and geared towards parents who want more time to ride or do activities. We also have a sun deck and hot tub and a dedicated workshop and Pro bike wash for our guests. We also have our bike mechanics should you need to call on them.

Bedrooms...take your pick: The Hotel has a selection of twin, triple and quad family suites. Many have suny balconies and views of either the resort centre and Mont Chery mountain or sunny ‘slope views’ of the trails and mountains laid out before you.

About Les Gets

Les Gets is a lovely family resort and yet it also hosts the MTB world cup and various events for bikers through summer, so it’s fair to say it is the best facilitated bike resort in the portes du Soleil, and possibly Europe! Like Morzine it has the largest network of walking and biking trails in the Alps with 25 lifts and nearly 1000km’s of graded trails - so you’ll never have to spend time pushing your bike uphill, when you could be flying down the other way!

Les Gets is the perfect destination for the family who loves the outdoors. Whether you’re splashing about in the lake, hanging out in the treetops or whooping your way down the white water river on a raft, you’re guaranteed to end every day with a huge smile on your face and a well-deserved glow in your cheeks!

Family-friendly fun

The Christiania is a great family hotel. Don’t forget to ask about our family rooms and interconnecting rooms; most have balcony and sunny alpine views and your kids will love the games room, the hotel garden and our hot tub.

Les Gets is a great spot for the active family who want to explore the mountains and enjoy lots of great family activities together. You’ll also enjoy the areas’ family bike ridesand our high quality kids bikes. Only an hour from the airport also means no lengthy, excitement-sapping transfers!

When parents need a breather our Active Kids Club for 4-12 year olds is open five days a week and right onsite in the hotel. We offer free half-day sessions (which you’ll have to prebook) and are just enough to give you some well-earned time to unwind while your kids make new friends and tire themselves out trying fun activities.

For Les Gets’ own lake

Les Gets has its own beautiful lake, a short walk from our hotel and is a great spot for wild swimming, sun bathing, kids games and activities like the famous Wi-Bit inflatables. There’s also a bigger lake near Morzine (on the free bus route) and our Active Team can hook you up with some free kayaking or paddle boarding. It’s a great day out to visit the lac Montriond by bike; or by free bus
