One of the great attractions of a holiday in Chatel is the ease of getting here. With Geneva airport only 90 minutes away plus excellent motorways and rail links, it's one of the easiest resorts to get to all year round. Below are the various options available plus information about airport transfers.
Airport transfers are available 7 days a week during both the winter and summer season.
For all 7 night winter holidays staying in our Fully Catered chalet we will book your transfers on your behalf and offer you 2 options, a priority shared or private transfer (see details below). Flights must arrive and depart Geneva between 9am and 15:30 on a Sunday. Prices for priority shared transfers on a Sunday are £25 per person each way.
- Priority Shared Transfer - Your transfer will be shared with other guests who have a similar flight time and travelling to the same or nearby resort. You will have the priority and in most cases your transfer will leave the airport as soon as you arrive but certainly no later than 30 minutes after you have checked in at the Magic Transfers desk. On your departure at the end of your holiday your transfer will leave 1.5 - 3 hours before your flight check in time.
- Private Transfer - On arrival you are met at the airport by your driver and leave immediately. If your flight is delayed the driver will still be there to meet you in arrivals so that you do not have to experience any further delays. Outbound departure times are always set to ensure you get to your flight check-in within a comfortable amount of time without excess waiting time in the airport. Let us know if this option is of interest and we will provide a quote.

Fly / Drive
This is a great option for summer holidays. In addition to the excellent free bus service we have in Chatel you would have even more flexibility when getting around the resort and sightseeing around this area of France and Switzerland. If you wish to hire a car from Geneva there are several companies to choose from. We recommend you hire vehicles from the Swiss side of Geneva airport. Take a look at our Useful Links page or contact us for more information and advice.
Bringing your own car gives you maximum flexibility for your ski or summer holiday. Once you have crossed the channel either by ferry or euro tunnel the distance from Calais to Chatel is around 550 miles which can be done in one day although a two day trip with a stop off on route is recommended. If you require a route planner or information on places to stay please let us know. There are so many places of interest you will want to visit and a wide range of activities, having a car will give you the flexibility you need.
