Driving Directions

To get here from the Channel, follow the motorways as follows:

A26 from Calais to Troyes (briefly referred to as the A4 around Reims)

A5 from Troyes to Dijon

A39 from Dijon to Bourg en Bresse.

A40 from Bourg en Bresse towards Geneva (Genève) - alternatively, carry on via Lyon and Chambery direct to Albertville.

Leave the A40 at junction 11, taking the N508 to Annecy.

From Annecy, follow signs to Albertville and the N508 (if in doubt, follow the inevitable "Toutes Directions" signs!), travelling along the edge of the beautiful Lake Annecy. This can be very busy in peak season and the longer route on the motorway may be the quicker option. Once in Albertville, follow signs for Moutiers. There is a dual-carriageway between Albertville and Moutiers. From Moutiers, follow signs for Bourg St Maurice. The dual-carriageway splits, you need to be in the left hand lane for Bourg (the right hand lane will take you to the Three Valleys).

Carry straight on through Bourg Saint Maurice, following signs for Sainte Foy Tarentaise / Tignes / Val d'Isere. On arriving in Seez, carry straight on over the roundabout with the sculpture in the middle, then through the pedestrian / 30kph limit section. At the next roundabout, bear right (1st exit), taking the turning for Sainte Foy Tarentaise / Val d'Isere / Tignes. Follow the main road along the valley floor. Eventually, the road starts to climb and goes through 2 hairpins before entering the town of Sainte Foy Tarentaise. Carry on through the town and out of the far end. Just before the road takes a left-hand hairpin, look out for a small, wooden building and a "dead-end" sign on the right. Take the right-hand turning here onto a rough track (take note - your Ferrari or body-kitted Corsa may not be appropriate....). The chalet is at the end of the track. There is space here to unload, etc. but we'd appreciate it if you could park for the week in the large car-park just off the hair-pin bend beyond the chalet turning. This is linked back to the chalet by a short path starting down some steps off on the hairpin.
