Travel by plane
Most of our guests choose to fly to the Alps. We are well served by the four local airports listed below that an array of airlines fly into. It is worth bearing in mind that whilst the transfer times from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble airports are about the same Lyon and Grenoble are actually further away distance-wise with the routes predominantly on toll-roads making transfers more expensive.
Chambery (1 hour transfer)
Geneva (2 hour transfer)
Lyon (2 hour transfer)
Grenoble (2 hour transfer)
Private Airport Transfers
The most hassle-free way of getting direct to / from the resort and airport. A private transfer will usually be the most cost effective way to travel if there are 5+ people in your party travelling together.
We can offer an Alpine Ethos transfer from Geneva airport to our guests at a competitive price, subject to availability. Alternatively we can arrange a transfer for you with one of our preferred transfer companies.
For your transfer we recommend:
Shared Airport Transfers
Good value for money and usually more economical when 1-3 people are travelling. We recommend:
Airport car hire
Booking a car at any of the local airports is fairly straightforward. We recommend that you pre-book in advance. Don't forget to order snow chains/request a 'winter pack' just in case! If flying into Geneva we recommend booking a car on the Swiss side (rather than the French) as it is less hassle and an easier drive (on the Swiss motorway) to and from resort.
Travel by car
Travelling by car to Meribel can often be the most convenient and economical way for groups and families. Meribel is approximately 600 miles from Calais ferry port and you can travel almost all of the way by motorway or express dual carriageway. The tolls cost around 75 Euros each way and there is free, private parking at both chalets. For your destination (enter "73550") and select "Savoie: Les Allues". The better route is via Reims rather than Paris. Please see our chalet pages for detailed location maps.
Travel by snow train
Probably the most eco-friendly way to get to resort. Meribel is served by Moutiers train station, just 20 minutes away from our chalets.
Leave London St. Pancras or Ashford International on Friday evening to arrive in Meribel on Saturday morning ready to ski or take the day train leaving St. Pancras around 9.30am on Saturday to be in resort in time for dinner. Contact us for transfer quotes from Moutiers station.
