In winter, proper car equipment (winter tyres) is strongly recommended. If you plan on hiring a car, we strongly advise you to choose a 4x4.
There is an open air free parking area just 200 m away from the chalet. A few parking spaces located just a short distance from the chalet are available to guests, but access to this car park cannot be guaranteed at peak times or in the event of inclement weather conditions (winter equipment required for access).
Geneva Airport is the closest airport to us (130 km away from the chalet).
To get to the chalet from the airport, and make the most of your stay, we recommend hiring a car.
Nevertheless, if you'd prefer public transport, you can get to Gryon (Barboleuse stop) by train and then, take a public or private shuttle (Barboleuse stop is 4 km drive from the chalet). Please see below for more information.
