Local Transport

We recommend that guests have their own transport when staying at Chalet Beaumont, be it your own or a rental vehicle. This enables you to make the most of your time in Chamonix which is more spread out than most mountain resorts and has few interlinking ski areas; resulting in a greater need for travel between places. Nevertheless, you may wish to use the local transport system or book a taxi, such as to get back after a night in town, so please find some helpful information below.

Car Hire

We've negotiated discounted rates with Rhino Car Hire offering our guests up to 10% off standard rates. For a personalised quote e-mail them on info@rhinocarhire.com or call +44 (0)845 508 9845.

We also recommend the following taxi companies. Please bear in mind to confirm their rates and to book ahead of time to avoid disappointment. The prices in brackets are an approximate cost for a trip into the town centre (a five minute journey), it is dependent on number of people and time of day.


Chamonix Bus runs all year round and serves the whole valley. The nearest bus stop is at the bottom of our hill, a 10 minute walk down and a 20 minute walk back up. The bus will take you into town and directly to the Flégère ski lift and beyond to those of Grands Montets and Le Tour. Buses run ever hour and half hour from approximately 7am-8pm.

Our nearest train station is Les Bossons, a 15-20 minute walk from the chalet. The Mont Blanc Express runs from St Gervais, through Chamonix and on to Martigny in Switzerland. There is approximately one train every hour; please click here for the timetable.
