Flying is the most popular way for our guests to travel to their holiday. Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Chambery Airports are all within approx. 3 hours drive of the chalet. Once you have arrived at the airport, there are several options for your onward journey:
The two public transfer companies that many guests and our staff have used over the years are Altibus and Ben’s Bus. Both of these companies offer transfers between Geneva and Lyon to Les Menuires and Ben’s Bus also offers transfers between Grenoble and Les Menuires.
From Les Menuires, there is a free resort bus which runs between 08:00-23:00 each day. Simply take the Circuit A – Circuit de Reberty and travel to Necou for Chalet des Neiges, Reberty.
Please note that Richmond is not operating its own transfer vehicles and it can be very difficult to find a local taxi to run the short route between Les Menuires and the chalet. Therefore, please ensure that the free resort bus timings are suitable to meet your departure/arrival transfers.
Private transfers are exclusive to you and your group, allowing greater flexibility. Further, a private transfer avoids the need to wait for guests on other flights, shortening your overall travel time.
Whilst a private transfer does tend to come at a higher cost than public transfers, for groups of four or more it can become quite competative, not to mention the convenience of the door-to-door service bespoke to you.
Mountain Express can provide private transfers for you and those on your booking. They are very professional, have a well maintained fleet of quality vehicles, and use experienced drivers who know the mountain roads well.
Other transfer companies guests have recommended to us include AlpyBus and CoolBus.
