Flying to the French Alps - Accommodation Only

Flight Information

Most of our resorts are close to the international airports of Geneva, Grenoble, Chambery, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Turin (Italy), where the low cost carriers fly to. Even if not as flexible, in our view, as the self-drive option there are some low fares to be found. With a bargain fare you will pay less attention to the two hours before departure check-in, the trailing around the airport with luggage, skis, boots and other equipment, the cost of airport parking and the possible flight delays.

Sorry we do NOT book flights! See below for details of airlines services to the French Alps in the winter.

Please note that 'accommodation only' bookings are not treated as a package under the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992. As a result of this you will not be covered in the same way for your holiday. Although we will always assist where we can, we cannot, for example, be held responsible for any problem (e.g. cancelled departure) linked to travel arrangements that you have made yourself.
