    Railway: Annecy / Chambery: 21.7 mi
    Ferry: Calais: 540.6 mi
    Flydrive – Geneva, Chambery, Grenoble

    Flights run regularly and if booking in advance you should get a return for about £50. Go to Skyscanner for prices and flight times from all airports.

    Access to La Bonne Vie is just 60 minutes away from picking up your car in Geneva, now the new motorway route to Annecy is open. Car hire is available from £22 a day at AutoEurope or CarHire3000. We strongly recommend hiring the car from the Swiss side if you use the toll roads to get to us (which is the quickest route, see below, and costs around 7€ each way).

We stayed at La Bonne Vie for ten days in July 2010 and went again for two weeks in July 2011. The chalet furnished is to a very high standard, very comfortable with all mod cons.
