4 elementsFrom Monday 11th to Sunday 17th August 2014

4 elements
For many years sustainable tourism has been important in Les Gets with particular priority given to the preservation and enhancement of the human and natural environments.

In pursuing its environmentally friendly tourism policy, Les Gets has focused on the 4 basic elements that make up our planet.  They form the basis of our environment, even of life itself, be it vegetable, animal or human and each one has its own particular role to play.  The earth that carries us, water that quenches our thirst, air we breathe and fire to keep us warm.

From here, the idea of a themed celebration week, linking the four elements with the identity of our village and the natural richness surrounding it, was born.
