The journey from Geneva to Saint Foy

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. Then the small towns of Moûtiers and Aime.

We then drive through Bourg Sainte Maurice and out the other side on the D1090.

Driving through Seez, a small town close to La Rosiere, we then start to head in the direction of Tignes and Val dI’sere, arriving at the village of Sainte Foy after about 8km.

We turn off to steep, but very pretty, tree lined road that brings us out by the ski station of Sainte Foy.

Enjoy the journey!
