Accommodation Details

We can recommend a very nice hotel situated in a quiet spot in the local village of Le Fayet - Hotel des Deux Gares This hotel, just a few minutes from us has ahotel des deux gares bar, very good restaurant, indoor swimming pool, very nice rooms and all at very competitive prices. For the hotel details go to: Chalet/Hotel des Deux Gares. Their email address is Email

The village of Le Fayet has a number of restaurants, bars, post office with ATM machine and a main line railway that links up to Chamonix and onto Switzerland via a mountain railway.

Towards the end of our road a pleasant elderly French couple run a traditionally styled B and B in a quiet sport and just a few minutes walk from Le Fayet and the local supermarket. Rooms cost from 45 Euros a night with breakfast. We can book this for you, or you can this directly: here is the link - B/B - Barrats

Up in St Gervais just 8 minutes from our chalet is the British owned and run: Gite Mont Joly

CAMPING is popular throughout the region and there are many good campsites There is camping up at Plaine Joux our main training/flying site. You don't have to book a place here, just turn up and find yourself a spot. The views of the Mont Blanc massif are superb and there are a couple of restaurants, toilets and a shower. It's a little remote and not much happens in the evening and there is shopping in the lower valley or the local village of Plateau d'Assy. Here is a link to the area: Camping/Passy

Lac Passy Camping Not too far from us in Domancy is an excellent and not expensive campsite close to Lac Passy, a beautiful lake and an ideal swimming spot. This campsite has everything for the details. Sallanches Camping Details

There is convenient shopping opposite our base in Domancy at the Intermarche Supermarket. It's open 08.30 - 19.30 during the week and 08.30 -12.00 on Sunday.

Chamonix town where we find a number of clients like to stay is just 20 kms and a 20 minute drive from our base in Domancy. There's a mountain railway running between Chamonix and Le Fayet, and en-route passes the station of Chedde close to our local paragliding landing site. When we are training/flying at Plaine Joux - Chedde or going off out of the valley we are happy to collect/drop off folk at Le Fayet and/or Chedde. Otherwise if we are flying in Chamonix we'll meet in town.
