Closest Train station to Les Gets

The closest train station to Les Gets is in Cluses. However, we wouldn't always recommend arriving here as it can be a bit inefficient. Let's look at this, and the alternative options:

Train to Les Gets via Geneva

The option we would recommend is to get the train to Geneva airport (GVA), and take a normal airport transfer from there. From the UK, you can take the Eurostar to Paris, and then the TGV that connects Paris to Geneva at great speed (about 3 hours). When you arrive at Geneva Main station, take the train out to the airport (about 15 mins). From here there are many transfer options to Les Gets, which takes about 1 hour.

Train to Les Gets via Cluses

The second option is to take the train to Cluses (about 4:30 hours from Paris Gare de Lyon). Cluse train station is about 30 mins drive (22 kilometers) from Les Gets. Transfers from here can be a bit more awkward. It involves changing trains to get there, so you might find the Geneva option above a bit easier.

By Car

Calais to Les Gets

It is a relatively straightforward (if not slightly long) drive from Calais to Les Gets. You typically travel via Geneva, as this gives you the best road options. Top tip: Avoid the centre of Paris at all costs!

Calais to Geneva:

Les Gets is very easy to drive to from the UK. It's about 9 hours driving time from Calais, and it's all motorways until the last 30 mins. We've put a map below with our favourite route for you. 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 and 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 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 signposted all the way.
