About the neighbourhood
Le Chatelard is perched on the side of a valley and is easily accessible by road but still remains unspoilt and retains a certain charm with its old store fronts and little alleys leading up towards the church. It is a quiet, friendly village with a good size Carrefour supermarket, bakery, bar and hotel/restaurant, tourist information, bank and post office and a local food market every Friday morning. It is at the heart of Les Bauges mountains, an area of outstanding natural beauty, heritage and tradition and it makes a great base to explore a wide range of outdoor activities or to simply relax.

We would like to share with you this little explored part of France, an area we think is a hidden gem!

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Geneva: 72.0 km
Railway: Annecy / Chambery: 35.0 km
Ferry: Calais: 870.0 km
We have found that Easyjet to Geneva and hiring a car from the Swiss side is the most economical way of getting here. Our chalet is only 1 hour from Geneva airport. Depending on the time of year and the number of people, going by ferry and driving from Calais can work out cheaper. It takes around 9 hours allowing for comfort breaks. Flying to Grenoble or Lyon are also options worth considering.
