Getting to Les Gets
The Portes du Soleil is located in the heart of the French Alps and is easily accessible from Geneva Airport and the French Motorway. Les Gets is one of the first villages you reach when entering the region.
The quickest route is by AIR to Geneva and then to DRIVE for just one hour to Les Gets. There are several airlines now offering low cost flights direct from the UK.
It is also possible to drive the 8 hours / 900 km from Calais (which in a larger group may be more economical). There is approximately 70 euros to pay in tolls on the Autoroute each way.
During the summer months we encourage our guests whenever possible to have their own transport as there are a huge variety of activities that take you all over the Portes du Soleil and several places of interest close by like the town of Annecy.
Flying to Geneva Airport
Les Gets is only 1 hours drive from Geneva Airport in Switzerland, making this the most convenient place to fly to. Several airlines now offer low cost flights including:
Airport transfers from Geneva
Using our personal transfer service will get you to and from the airport as quickly and conveniently as possible. We can arrange to meet you from your flight and deliver you directly to our chalet in a private 8 seater minibus. There is the option to book private airport transfers in our minibus if you prefer not to wait for other guests, although the normal waiting time is no more than 30 minutes.
AIRPORT TRANSFERS COST: €80 Euros per person return OR €45 Euros per person if you only require a transfer in one direction.
Car Hire from Geneva Airport
Les Gets is easily accessible via the ‘Autoroute Blanc’ motorway directly from Geneva Airport. There are a range of car hire companies at the airport if you wish to self drive. Please note, we recommend hiring a Swiss car as travel in and out of Geneva airport is much easier. We also recommend hiring snow chains and snow tyres in winter.
