Accommodation Details

We are based in the village of Domancy, close to Le Fayet, in the l'Arve valley just below the Chamonix valley, a 20kms or 20 minute drive from Chamonix. There's a mountain railway and/or bus service running between Chamonix town centre and Le Fayet/Domancy. If you are without a vehicle then we are happy collect and drop you off each day from local accommodation in and around Domancy, Le Fayet, Passy or Sallanches. Otherwise if you are staying in Chamonix Valley and we are flying in Chamonix we'll meet you there in town: we wouldn't necessarily fly in Chamonix every day.

The close by 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.

There is a selection of different types of accommodation in the area, and 'Airbnb' is popular. Here are some AirBnB links for accommodation close to us. Le Fayet is the closest to us, then Passy and Sallanches.

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
