GENERAL INFORMATION

Do you provide any additional local services at the apartment ?

Yes we do, to provide bespoke services if required, eg ski passes, restaurant information, travel information etc. They will meet and greet you on your arrival and provide a local contact should you require any additional services (paid for on request) and local information to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

 

Planes, Trains or automobiles - which method is easiest to reach Chamonix?

This really depends on personal choice, phobias, hobbies, and days of travel.

Flying, whilst seemingly less time moving between countries, involves much longer check-ins and greater potential for delays. This all counts towards stress, tiredness and length of time to get to your destination. The good news though, is that the transfer between Geneva airport and Chamonix is approximately 1 hour.

 

With flying you are much more likely to get a 'bargain' price, and if you want to arrive/depart on days other than the weekend is probably less hassle than negotiating the train.

 

Driving out from the UK by car is relatively inexpensive if you can share the journey with several friends.

 

Bear in mind that the normal eight hour pleasant journey across France will encounter toll charges of approximately 60E per car each way. It may take longer if you encounter heavy snowfalls, but all the roads are well maitained during this period.

 

Where can I book flights from the UK?

Skyscanner uses cached details so is quicker for an initial overview but needs to get updated rates once you have chosen specific flights to enquire about (so the price can increase depending when the last enquiry was made - your request actually updates the system for others!) It also has a month view of the prices in case you are looking at when the cheapest periods might be (very handy).

 

Geneva is the closest airport to Chamonix (98km).

 

Getting Around Chamonix

By Bus

The buses to the ski lifts are free on production of a lift pass. During the high season the service is very frequent, every 10-15min, but can get very busy. There is a bus stop conveniently located opposite our apartment.
