Best route from Geneva to Aix-Les-Bains

Hi there,

I am trying to find the best route from Geneva to Aix-Les-Bains in France this July. Any advice on whether I should take the train, bus or hire a car would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

Jen

It takes about an hour for the early AM direct trains.

The drive is maybe 1.5 hours. The most direct route brings you very close to Annecy, which would be a nice detour.

If driving and in no rush to get there, you could drive over to the medieval village of Yvoire on the other side of the lake, perhaps taking a cruise and having lunch at the Hotel Restaurant du Port. Then pass through Annecy on the way to Aix les Bains.

Thank you so much for the information, very helpful!

I don't suppose anyone knows whether buses/coaches go from Geneva to Aix-Les-Bains? And if so how I'd book a ticket? I can't seem to find info anywhere.

Many thanks once again!
