Les Gets is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France.The village's first single-person chair lift was opened in 1938 with the first chair lift on Mont Chéry in 1954.GeographyLes Gets is situated on the col between Taninges and Morzine, at the western edge of the Portes du Soleil ski area.CultureLes Gets contains a museum of Mechanical Music and hosts a festival of Mechanical Music bi-annually. This has been running for 25 years. During this period the streets are closed off and barrel organs or orgues fill the streets with mechanical music. Many of the organ grinders come from other European countries, such as Germany and Holland.Traditional Savoy dishes are central to Les Gets cuisine. These include tartiflette, a dish of potatoes "au gratin" with reblochon cheese and lardons. A traditional liqueur, génépi, is also often drunk as a digestif, although the exact constitution of this medicinal drink varies as many residents produce their own.NightlifeThere are many restaurants ranging from the family-friendly and reasonably priced to fairly top-end. They mostly specialise in local savoyard cuisine.
