Les Gets, a mountain resort located in the French Alps, one hour’s drive from Geneva, is now preparing to open for the summer.
Clearly the travel situation right now is still unclear, with some signs that travel to France might be possible this Summer, with the UK government suggesting that the planned quarantine measures will not apply between the UK and France.
The safety of all guests is the priority for Les Gets Tourism and they are currently making plans to ensure all installations and public spaces conform to any government advice.
Alexis Bongard, Director of the Office de Tourisme Les Gets, said:
The mountains is a wonderful place to escape and breath in the fresh air, take in the nature and enjoy walks in a relaxing environment – we really hope to welcome people once they can travel here and enjoy Les Gets and the beautiful landscapes we have on our doorstep.
