A note on our prices: Chalet Albine is offered as a self-catered luxury chalet. Bed linen and towels are available at 15 Euros per person

Chalet Albine: There are a host of restaurants for those wishing to eat out. The chalet is directly on the route of 2 ski buses, one to La Panthiaz and the other to Chatel, however for those wishing to explore the whole of the Portes du Soleil we would advise a car. It is an easy journey from Calais and even easier if you fly to Geneva and rent.

Getting There: From Geneva or the local rail links it is a simple matter to hire a car. Once at the chalet the car will also open up the whole area allowing quick and easy access to some of the further lifts. There are two ski buses that stop yards from the chalet to take you to the lifts at Chatel (3 km) or the other way to Chapelle (less than 1 km). Both lifts get you quickly into fantastic skiing areas linking as far as you can wish.
