Getting There

Le Bettaix is most easily reached from Chambery Airport or Moutiers train station, and Richmond offers transfers from both.  

New for this winter: Richmond Shuttle Mini-Bus

Richmond will be operating our own shuttle mini-bus service between Chalet Elise and Les Menuires, three times a day Sunday to Friday. There will be 8 places per transfer, per way. There will be a sign-up sheet put in the lounge the night before - with priority to beginners and non-skiers.

Shuttle transfer information, with approximate timings:

  • Morning: 08:45 (Leaving Chalet Elise to meet the morning lessons)
  • Lunch time: 12:30 (leaving Les Menuires)
  • Afternoon: 16:30 (from Chalet Elise to Les Menuires) then returning at 17:00 (from Les Menuires to Chalet Elise)

Flight Transfers - Chambery

Our transfer service can meet flights at Chambery on a Saturday departing from 10:10 and arriving until 18:20

Suitable flights to fit in with our transfers can be found from Stansted and London Gatwick (via Kathryn Ketchen at Travel Counsellors, or on charterflights.co.uk),  East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Birmingham, Southampton, Jersey, Guernsey, Edinburgh, Manchester and Exeter. 

You will be met and welcomed by a uniformed member of our Richmond staff and shown to the departure point of the transfer vehicle.

The transfer time is approximately 2 hours, although this can be significantly longer on high season weeks.

Please let the bookings team in the office know if you would like to add transfers to your booking and we will take your flight details and book you on our transfer. 

We will group guests together as much as possible depending on what flights you are coming in on. You should not have to wait any more than 2 hours for your transfer and in most cases it will be a lot less. 

You will need to book your flights independently.

Fly/Drive

If you prefer to fly to Lyon or Geneva, you could hire a car and drive from the airport. It is approximately 2 hours 40 minutes drive from either airport.

There is free parking at the edge of the village or in the nearby town of Les Menuires.

Ben’s Bus also runs a transfer service to Les Menuires from Geneva, Lyon or Grenoble airports: www.bensbus.co.uk. New this year, we are offering a Richmond transfer from our chalets that will drop you in Les Menuires for the 4:30am Ben’s Bus departure.


Drive

Driving from the UK tends to be the most cost effective way of travelling to resort for a family or group. Le Bettaix is around 600 miles from Calais and would usually be around 9 to 10 hours of driving. There is free parking at the edge of the village or in the nearby town of Les Menuires.
