Arriving by car
The nearest highway exit is Cluses / Scionzier on the French A40 towards Chamonix / Mont Blanc Tunnel. Samoëns is an easy 20 Km (about 20 min) driving from there.
If you arrive from Geneva / Annemasse / Annecy then you will have to drive across Cluses and follow the indications for Samoëns. If you arrive from the Mont Blanc tunnel / Chamonix then you only cross the main square in Cluses. In both cases you will take the D902 to go up in the mountain. This is a very comfortable mountain street which is kept clear of snow in winter.
You will then pass Châtillon-sur-Cluses and arrive at the crossing with the D4 (before entering Taninges). Here take the right-turn on the D4 towards Morillon and Samoëns. After the roundabout at the entrance of Morillon, there are indications for Samoëns that would make you turn left to avoid the centre of Morillon. Although this is also a possible route, it is advisable that you continue on the D4 and cross the centre of Morillon.
At the entrance of Samoëns, immediately after the sharp left-turn, there is a bridge over Le Giffre. Cross the bridge and at the roundabout turn left. After about 200 m enter the small path on your right. There is an external guest parking area on your left.
