Directions

By Air

Châtel is just over 80 minutes drive from Geneva Aiport either along the north or south side of the lake.  Or there is a train from Geneva Airport to Aigle, Switzerland and the chalet is a 30 minute taxi ride from here.

Tavelling by Car

From the UK via Calais, a drive of 8.5 hours approximately 520 miles.  If you are doing the journey without an overnight stop then we recommend from Calais taking the auto-route virtually all the way via Reims, Troyes, Dijon, Dole and down to Bourg-en-Bresse then Geneva. Come off at junction 14 Annemasse then follow signs for Thonon and then Vallee d’Abondance and Châtel. We are happy to provide more detailed driving instructions.

An alternative route would be towards Dijon then across the beautiful Jura mountains at Besancon down to Lausanne then east around Lake Geneva on the Swiss autoroute towards Montreux and then accross the pass at Morgins.  This route involves buying a pass for the Swiss motorways.

By Train

The Saturday service of www.eurostar.com from London Paddington to Aigle Switzerland, in 7 hours 50 minutes, from Aigle a 30 minute transfer to Châtel.
