Read this information and click the map on the right for a little help once in Vallorcine.
Take the Autoroute Blanche towards Chamonix. From Chamonix, take Route Nationale 506 towards Argentière and continue over the Col des Montets (1461 m) towards Switzerland. Approximately 300 m after the Col des Montets, you will pass the little village of Le Buet, cross a little bridge and – voilà, the Bellevue Alpine Lodge will appear on your left roughly 100 m after the bridge.
The Col des Montets is occasionally closed due to high avalanche risk. Should this be the case, it is usually possible to drive to Vallorcine via the train tunnel from Montroc at certain hours.
From the North, via Switzerland (Zurich or Basel to Bern, then Montreux):
From Montreux it is another 50 km on the highway before you reach Martigny. Follow the directions to France, Chamonix, Col du Forclaz (1527 m). After passing the Col you will get to Châtelard, the small border village between France and Switzerland.
Drive through Vallorcine past the 'Mairie' (town hall) and railway station to the left. The Bellevue Alpine Lodge will appear on the right side of the road after approximately 300 m.
We highly recommend our winter guests to remember their snow chains. And to know how to use them!
You can arrive by train from either Switzerland (Martigny – an very scenic train ride) or the TGV to St. Gervais, then take a train via Chamonix to the little train station of Le Buet.
The Bellevue Alpine Lodge is 5 minutes by foot from the train station (in the direction of Vallorcine).
The closest airport is in Geneva (1.5 hours by car). Various transfer options can be found at www.chamonix.net (be aware that some companies will drive you all the way to Vallorcine while others will take you no further than Chamonix).
Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 Days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the full cost of the reservation. Deposits paid are non refundable.
