How to get there

Geneva Airport:

We recommend families fly to Geneva and rent a car to drive up to La Tzoumaz. It normally takes less than 2hrs. This is mainly for cost reasons, plus gives you greater flexibility for going to the shops and restaurants in the village or outings. The chalet has 2 free and easy accessible parking spaces in private garage.

Train service:

For individuals travelling alone, there are fast and reliable hourly train services directly from Geneva airport to Martigny or Sion. There you have to change trains and catch a local train to Riddes. From there are good local bus connection up to La Tzoumaz but last bus leaves at 7pm, so important to check arrival and departure times.

Driving directions from Geneva airport:

If you have hired a car from the Swiss side of the airport, its easy access onto the motorway and a straightforward drive to the chalet. As you leave the airport, follow the green signs for Lausanne (A1, E25, E62). Stay on the motorway, following signs for Simplon (A9). After Martigny, take junction 24 exit for Riddes. Follow signs for La Tzoumaz. This is now a mountain road for 15 km. As you enter La Tzoumaz you will see the main lift (telecabine), on your right hand side. The tourist information office is right next to it (Open from 8am-12 and from 1pm-6pm). Go past this, continue up the main road up for about 800m following road signs for baby lift, Taillay and Maison de la Foret. When you reach a roundabout, take first right, and drive through tunnel under piste, and after 50m you will reach a row of open garages on left-hand side. The two parking spaces are roughly in the middle of the row, number 5&6, marked with snowflake stickers. The path up to chalet is immediately left after the row of garages up the hill for 150m.

Snow tyres are essential at all times during the winter months, from December through end of April.

During summer months cars can access the chalet directly driving up the track road immediately left after the tunnel. This is not possible in winter as it is a ski piste when snow covered.
