How to get there

Chalet Joli is easily accessible:

The closest international airport is Geneva, just 1 hour 45 minutes drive from La Tzoumaz. The motorway follows Lac Leman and then the Rhone valley to Riddes (J24). From here it is only a 13km climb up to the village. Transfers are available if you do not want to drive yourself. Sion has an airport too, around 30km away.

Swiss trains are incredibly reliable. The train from Geneva will take you to Martigny where you can change to a local train to Riddes. The bus service would then bring you up the mountain. Alternatively taxi transfers are available for the remaining part of your journey from Martigny. All amenities in the village are within walking distance of Chalet Joli so a car is not necessarily required.

Many people do make the journey in their own cars. Routes across Europe are quick and the French tolls not too expensive. Just remember, if you are making the journey during the winter months then you must carry snow chains (and be able to use them). Although the Swiss are very good at clearing the roads you don't want to get caught out. Driving yourself does give you the opportunity to stock up on groceries in the hypermarkets of Martigny or Conthey both approximately a 25 minute drive from Chalet Joli.
