Getting there – Flying

Via Geneva

Geneva offers the greatest number of daily flights to the UK. Once at Geneva, you have 3 options…

1. Car rental from Geneva airport

2. Bus to Annecy followed by bus to Lathuile

3. Train to Annecy followed by bus to Lathuile

The cheapest option is express bus from Geneva airport to Annecy, followed by local bus service around the lake from Annecy to Lathuile. The bus stop in Lathuile is about 5 minutes’ walk from the house.

The train option is more expensive to get to Annecy, but is pleasantly scenic and comfortable. When in Geneva Airport baggage reclaim, be sure to look for the ticket machine that issues FREE tickets to travel by train from Geneva airport to Geneva Central railway station. The ticket is valid for 2 hours. BEFORE boarding the train to Geneva Central, call in to the railway ticket shop at Geneva airport. They will advise the best route and timing for trains to Annecy and also sell you the ticket. Once you reach Annecy, catch the no.51 bus around the lake to Lathuile, as described above.

Via Lyon

Whilst there are fewer daily flights to Lyon, it is an option which we sometimes take based on airfare prices (often cheaper than Geneva). From Lyon, there are both express buses and trains to Annecy. There is usually little price difference between the bus and the train.

Via Grenoble

We have not yet used this routing, but know there are good connections from Grenoble to Annecy/Albertville and then the no.51 local bus onwards to Lathuile.
