Travel Information

The Vérel house is easily accessible just 45mins from Geneva airport (Switzerland) and 20 mins from Annecy (France).   
Geneva International airport is very small and extremely efficient.  Immigration clearance and customs takes minimal time and guests can arrive at the house within 1.5 hours of landing.
Alternative routes : 2 hours drive from the beautiful town of Lyon and the Paris - Annecy TGV takes less than 4 hours.
The hamlet of Vérel sits at a 750m elevation, half way between the sought-after lakeside villages of Talloires and Menthon-St-Bernard, and the world-renowned paragliding spot at Col de la Forclaz.  It is perfectly located just minutes away from the busy lakeside action, yet retains a delicate distance to afford guests a genuine sense of escape.  
Manigod, La Clusaz, Aix-les-Bains, Megève and Chamonix (with access to the Mont-Blanc and the Aiguille du Midi) are all nearby, and Italy is just 1.5hrs away - all making for a great variety of easily-accessible outings and day trips.
For car hire from Geneva, we advise all guests to request car hire from the "French side" of Geneva as this is considerable cheaper than renting from the "Swiss side."  There are 2 routes to access Talloires from Geneva airport and we recommend the faster route via the Swiss autoroute which will require a brief stop to purchase the Swiss "vignette" which permits 1 year use of the autoroute.  Approx cost of  CHF 40, under 40 Euros.
