Many of our guests find it practical to have their own car since the principal ski areas are not always connected by lifts. For guests without a car there is a bus shuttle that serves all the ski areas. The closest bus stop is a 10 minute walk from the lodge.

Departing the UK
Geneva airport is the closest and most convenient airport to Chamonix. Please contact us for advice if necessary before booking.

Car hire in Geneva
Le Refuge strongly urges guests to hire a car at Geneva airport for the duration of their holiday (except those driving from the UK). It is a relatively cheap option and easy to organize from the UK. All of the principal car hire firms are represented at Geneva Airport and accept bookings made outside the country (including Europcar, Avis, Easycar, Hertz, etc). It is also advisable and more convenient to organize your car hire pick-up on the Swiss side rather than the French side.

Please contact us for advice on car hire if necessary.
