Chambéry, France

Val Thorens, Val d’Isère or Les Deux Alpes? The fastest way to start your winter sports holiday is an airline ticket to Chambéry!

Chambéry lies at the heart of the French Alps and is the starting point for a memorable skiing holiday. A flight of about 1.5 hours will bring you to the small airport of Chambéry. You can almost get your skis on and jump from the plane into the snow. Seriously, you won’t have to wait long. There are a number of shuttle buses that bring you to many ski areas with the best slopes such as the Maurienne or Tarentaise valleys.

Be in the snow in no time with a ticket to Chambéry

You are at the airport in the morning and a couple of hours later you are in the ski lift on the way to your first slope! The short flight, the small airport and the excellent transport connections to the winter sports areas means that you cannot start your skiing holiday any faster than with a flight to Chambéry. Do you have some spare time with all the skiing? The medieval village of Chambéry is a lovely place to visit!
