FLIGHTS TO THE ALPS
We recommend flying into Geneva, Turin or Milan Malpensa for the shortest transfer time.
AIRPORT TRANSFERS and CAR HIRE
We can provide you with information regarding airport transfers prices up to La Thuile by sending us an email.
We also recommend you compare car hire to airport transfer prices from these airports as well, as car hire can be very cost effective. You need to add approximately 150€ for petrol and tolls/tunnel costs to car hire costs for a return journey from these airports.
DRIVING FROM NEARBY AIRPORTS
From Geneva airport get on the motorway that circles the city and follow direction to France and then Chamonix.
Go through the Mont Blanc Tunnel. Get a return ticket which is valid for 7 days and costs approx. 54,00 Euro return.
Warning - after passing through the tunnel be careful
DO NOT take the motorway to Aosta (marked with a green sign) or you will end up in Aosta town and have to drive all the way back up the valley to get to La Thuile. Stay on the normal road to Courmayeur. Drive on past Courmayeur being careful again not to take the motorway (marked with a green sign) to Aosta. 5 Km after Courmayeur you get a small town called Pre St. Didier and that's where you turn up to La Thuile. From the town centre follow the following directions supplied by google maps to get ot the hotel.
From Turin airport take the motorway to Turin center and then turn off onto the Tangienziale motorway towards Milano/Aosta. Keep following signs for Aosta and then continue on the A5 motorway to Aosta. Don't turn off the motorway to Aosta when you get to the toll gates but follow signs for Mont Blanc tunnel. At Morgex turn off and take the state road to Pre. St Didier and then on up to La Thuile.
From Milano airports take the A4 towards Turin and just after the Santhia exit turn on to the A4/5 towards Ivrea. Then change on to the A5 towards Aosta and follow on as from Turin.
From Genoa take the A10 towards Savona. Just after Voltri take the A26 towards Alessandria and continue past Casale Monferrato. Then take the A26/A4 towards Ivrea and then on to the A5 as if coming from Turin.
Here is our position on google maps CHALET ALPINA. After google maps opens just click directions on Google maps and follow them. Please note ignore the no entry sign at the beginning of the road as it only applies to the section of the road after you have reached the Chalet Alpina. We don't have big flashy signs so look out for our lovely wooden Chalet.
There is free outside parking right by the Hotel.
