The journey from Geneva to Montchavin & Les Coches

Journey Distance

147 km

Estimated Travel Time

2h 35m

Our transfer driver meets you in the Geneva airport arrivals area situated in terminal 1, the Swiss side of the airport.

We follow the A41 towards Annecy, then drive around the proximity of Lac d'Annecy (Annecy Lake). This is a very picturesque part of the journey, if you are lucky enough to be travelling in the day time. The mountains rise up from behind the lake as we drive, so you will start to feel that you are close to the Alps.

After Annecy we pass the city of Albertville on the motorway and then the small towns of Moûtiers and Aime.

We turn off the main road just before Bourg Saint Maurice and make a short 15 minute climb to Montchavin.  Les Coches is a few minutes further.

About Montchavin & Les Coches

Based in the La Plagne ski area, Montchavin and Les Coches are popular ski destinations for travellers of all ages.

When Montchavin’s farming and agriculture dried up during the 1960s, it was decided that it would be the perfect spot for tourists. Full of interesting shops, lively bars and restaurants and accommodation built right next to the slopes, the village has become just that and is now one of La Plagne’s largest resorts.

Shortly after Montchavin was established, building work began in Les Coches. The stunning mountain village became a sought-after resort for fans of winter and summer sports.

The Vanoise Express has made it really easy for visitors to both villages to hit the 134 slopes across at Peisey-Vallandry too!
