Le Vagabond® CHAMONIX MONT-BLANC is conveniently located at the very heart of central Cham-land:

... situated less than 2 minutes walk from the very centre of town;
1 minute walk from the bus station and access to all mountain lift and ski-areas ...
... 10 minutes walk from the railway station.
And, less than... an hour by car... a mere 78 kilometres from Geneva airport—AT THE international
boundary & cultural cornerstone of Switzerland, Italy, and the Rhône-Alpes région of la belle France!

Simplicity has it's own special charm—simple happenings everyday! THE VITAL AND VIVACIOUS VAGABOND WAY®

:: For arrival by ::

BUS... a one minute walk. From the bus station in Chamonix sud | turn left and walk across the bridge over river l'Arve towards the roundabout. Turn left again into avenue Ravanel le Rouge and the Vagabond.

CAR... and the carpark. You arrive in Chamonix via the motorway (A40) Autoroute Blanche. At the second large roundabout, turn left into Chamonix sud | Continue straight over two roundabouts | and, across river l'Arve to a third 'small-er' roundabout. Turn left and the Vagabond is 100 metres on the left. First left past the building for car park to the rear.

TRAIN... ten minutes' easy stroll. The scenic Mont-Blanc Express train comes through to Chamonix via St. Gervais - Le Fayet. From Chamonix's train station walk down the main drag, namely avenue Michel Croz keeping McDonalds (subtly disguised for Chamonard taste!) on your left, go straight into the centre of town. At the clock tower turn left, following the main pedestrian street rue du Docteur Paccard, until it turns into avenue Ravanel le Rouge | continue over the roundabout, and the Vagabond is a mere 100 meters on your left.

TRANSFER... airport shuttle services. Bus transfers by road with less than one-hour transfer time | readily available direct—between Geneva Airport and the Chamonix valley. Whether as scheduled services or private transfers | oftentimes at very reasonable cost due to the high number of current operators. Drop off will be directly outside Le Vagabond's front Entrance Porch or in the Vagabond car park.
