AIRPORT TRANSFERS

Please contact us if you need airport transfers. We offer these via our sister company, Chairlift.eu, a year-round transfer service based here in the Oisans. They are able to collectyou directly from the airport or railway station and back, straigt to the chalet door.

There is a bus from the airport to Grenoble rail & bus station and then a service from there to Bourg d'Oisans, which takes bike boxes. From there we'll be able to give you a lift up the hill, so long as we're not in the middle of cooking dinner!.

CAR HIRE

All of the above airports offer a good choice of car rental (see our Links page page for suggestions). Travel to us from these airports is mainly via toll roads (see driving directions in following section). It is worth considering the size of vehicle required if travelling with serveral large bike boxes or bags.
