Getting To Courchevel & Les 3 Vallées
Airport & Rail Transfers

Please check with our UK office before making your flight bookings to ensure that we can provide transfers for you.


Arrival and departure days

Access to our chalets on arrival day is from 15:00hrs onwards.  If you arrive earlier you are welcome to deposit your luggage in the garage/hallway and then explore the local area.  There is a free ski bus which connects the Courchevel villages.

On departure day please vacate bedrooms by 10:00hrs.  If you wish to ski on your day of departure then you are welcome to use an area in the chalet to change out of your ski gear at the end of skiing.  Showering facilities are not available after the 10:00hrs bedroom checkout.


Travel to resort

All our guests book their own flights or make their own travel arrangements if travelling by train or car.

Please advise us of your mode of travel at the time of booking your holiday.  Before you book your flights please email us the details (including flight/train numbers, arrival and departure times) and we will confirm if we are able to arrange your transfer to and from resort.  If we are unable to provide a transfer then we will supply a list of suppliers that we use and recommend.


Transfers

We are well aware that your transfer from the airport to resort is a critical part of your holiday.   However, following Brexit we are no longer able to operate our own standard minibus transfers from Geneva.  We will arrange transfers with 3rd party suppliers (coach, minibus or taxi companies).  The wait at the airport may be longer than pre 2022 when we used our own minibuses.

We also provide transfers from Grenoble, Lyon and Chambery (minimum of 4 people on a transfer) – we will group transfers together but the wait is likely to be shorter (but not guaranteed) as we will be able to send our own minibuses to French airports.

Please note that our transfers only operate on transfer day and, unless specifically prebooked and prepaid, they are shared transfers and are not private transfers.

Our Transfer Section works very hard to ensure a minimum waiting time at the airport for our guests but we also need to ensure that transfers fit in with other arrivals (which sometimes does necessitate a longer wait at the airport).  Our drivers will do their utmost to make sure you are picked up promptly and taken directly to our chalets.


Travelling with infants

Please make sure that you request a car seat if one is required specifying either front facing, rear facing or booster seat. Infants are charged the standard fee for their return transfer as detailed below and we are pleased to provide car seats free of charge.

Arrival Flights

Our minibus transfers are available for flights landing between 09:30hrs – 17:59hrs on transfer day.

If you wish to book a flight which lands earlier than 09:30hrs then we are happy to meet you from 10:00hrs onwards and you can enjoy a coffee in the airport whilst waiting (no additional surcharge would apply).

For arrivals from 18:00hrs onwards then a surcharge in addition to the standard transfer charge (as detailed above) will apply if we are able to arrange a transfer for you up until 20:00hrs. After 20:00hrs or if we were unable to provide a transfer between 18:00hrs – 20:00hrs then a private transfer, at your cost, would be required. However, if we were unable to arrange this we would ask you to make your own arrangements for travel to resort from the airport.

Departure Flights

Our first minibuses leave resort around 05:30hrs/06:00hrs and our last minibus leaves resort around 13:00hrs to return guests to the airport for their homeward flights.

For flights departing later in the evening your transfer would still depart around 13:00hrs.  If you wish a later return transfer then please check with the UK office if this can be provided at a surcharge (as detailed above) in addition to the standard transfer charge.

Please note that for returns to the various airports we will always leave a generous amount of time for the transfer journey, check-in and onward transit through the airport.


Transfers from the train station

If you decide to travel by train then we collect and return to Moutiers Salins de Bains train station to coincide with the morning and evening arrival and departure times of the Eurostar.

If your train arrives very early there are cafes where you can wait and have a coffee. We would then be delighted to take you to resort and to your chalet to drop off our luggage.  Chalet access is from 15:00hrs onwards on arrival day.

If you are arriving during the day in to Moutiers train station then you are able to either catch the ski bus to Courchevel or take a taxi (60 euros one way approximately).
