There are two options when getting the train to Les Gets from the UK:
1: The first is to get the train to Geneva . From the UK you can take the Eurostar to Paris, then the TGV connects Paris to Geneva at great speed (about 3 hours). When you arrive into Geneva Main station take the train out to the airport (about 15 mins) then there are many transfer options from there up to Les Gets, which takes about 1 hour. Again we'd be more than happy to arrange these for you.
2: The second option would be to take the train from Paris to Cluses (about 5:30 hours), which is about 30 mins drive from Les Gets. Transfers from here can be a bit more awkward, and it involves changing trains to get there so you might find the Geneva option above a bit easier.

Please note that if you just put Les Gets into a GPS ( 46°09'31.3"N 6°40'10.9"E ) it'll often route you through the centre of Paris, which is not particularly pleasant! The route below goes through Reims and Troyes which is much easier & quicker in our experience.
Geneva to Les Gets: If you are self driving we recommend using what locals and seasonaires call the "Vallee Verte" route. Starting by heading along the A40 out of Geneva until Exit 15. Then move briefly onto D903 before taking D9 (passing the Le Fournil Du Miton bakery on your left) and and straight onto D20 before turning onto the D907. Keep going through the village of Bonne and onto the village of Taninges before turning up onto the Les Gets valley road D902. Keep going along the D902 until you get to Les Gets. This route is a bit quicker and more scenic. It also avoids the centre of Cluses and costs about 1.80 less on tolls. If unsure then take the Cluses route as it is sign posted all the way.

In our experience these routes will save you time and are, overall, a more pleasant driving experience.
