Whether you drive across France, or from Geneva airport you will join the (A40) Autoroute Blanc towards Chamonix.
There are two toll gates to go through costing a total of 6€.
(Click on small photos for enlargement.)
10 kms after the Cluses toll, take exit 20 to Sallanches. The slip road joins the D1205 into Sallanches.
(Beware: IGNORE your sat-nav if it says turn right after the bridge. You absolutely do NOT want to take the "ancient route".)
The D1212 twists and climbs for about 4 miles into Combloux. If it is snowing you'll need to pull in to THE lay-by and fit snow chains... You'll enter this map from the top.
If it is now snowing this would be a good time to fit snow chains, because at the next roundabout you turn sharp right and climb again towards the apartments.
Then you turn left (tricky in winter), and drive over the small crest ...
You will descend to a juction with the 'rte du Vernay - then take a hairpin right and it is another 100 yds to the 'Chalets des Ecrin' car parks.
See the site map below.
When you arrive you will see a welcome sign on the left, and a parking area on the right. L'Aiglon is on the left at this level, and la Biche is the next chalet down the hill.
There are various free parking spaces around the apartments - but beware in winter you may need snow chains to get back up the short steep slope from "la Biche", so if you are staying in l'Aiglon it is better not to drive down.
Your keys are available in the foyer of "la Biche" and may be collected or returned at any time of day or night. In front of the entrance door is a set of mailboxes. One of the boxes on the left has a digital lock - two bunches of keys will have been left in this box for your use - check that we have given you the latest combination code before your arrival. Press the keys in sequence and turn the knob anti-clockwise to open - be sure to relock the box after you have your keys.
As shown on the site map: apartments A, B and C are in la Biche: door numbers 88, 87 and 91 respectively. X is in l'Aiglon door no. 59. If you have also reserved our garage, this is no. 58 under the tennis court.
Note that the keys are colour coded: red opens the front door. When leaving, raise the handle to engage bolts before the door will lock.
Ski lockers are in the basement (turn right) and marked with the apartment number. Turn left in the basement for the "locale poubelles" where you deposit household rubbish.
When you finally leave, please make sure you have cleaned the apartments (allow 2-3 hours) and removed used bedlinen and please be sure to leave the keys inside the box for the next occupants.
