Airport transfers - by MMC to your doorstep:

Airport transfers, to and from Geneva, are included in our fully catered packages (or can be added onto your self-catering option). Guests are transferred in luxury 8 or 9 seater mini buses from Geneva airport to the village.

MMC endeavour to collect as many people from your party in one load as possible, but should arrival times differ greatly, we may need to send additional buses at an additional cost.

Self drive options:

Geneva to Châtel:

There are two possible routes.

  • Predominantly through France, country roads, (approximately 75km and 1h30/45m)

    Drive through the center of Geneva, following the signs to Thonon-les-Baines and Evian. At Thonon-les-Baines follow the signs to Châtel/Portes Du Soleil, follow them directly to the center of the village.

  • Predominantly through Switzerland on the freeway (approximately 140kms/ 1h30/45)

    Take the Swiss motorway via Lausanne and Montreux, turning off at Monthey North. Follow the signs to and up the Pass de Morgins and then into Châtel. (Please note that on Swiss motorways you will need a ‘vignette’ which is a 5cm square sticker with the current years date on it. Most hire cars have them already displayed on the front window, if not most Swiss garages sell them for 40 Swiss francs for the year (about £20/ 25 Euros).

Zurich to Châtel:

So now you’ve reached the centre of Châtel, how do you get to Le Jet D’Eau ?

From the centre of town (tourist office) proceed down ‘Route de Linge’ toward Pres la Joux

  • (if you’re coming through Switzerland you’ll turn left)
  • (If you’re coming up through France you take the right hand fork)

At the fork at the bottom, left onto “Route de Pres Les Joux’ passing Linga Ski station on your left. Le Jet D’Eau is the last set of houses before you get to the Pres La Joux lifts, about 3,6km from the centre of the village
