Access to Névache

How to find us?

Part of the charm and beauty of our valley comes from its remoteness. Hence it is quite a journey to make it to Névache. After having read the lines below, please fell free to contact us so we can help you organize your trip!

  • By plane :

The closest airports are Torino in Italy (1.5 hours in summer, 2 hours in winter), and Marseille or Grenoble in France (3.5 hours). You can then find a shuttle bus to the nearest train station (in Marseille or Grenoble) or directly to Briançon (in winter from Torino Aiport, see here). Or you can rent a car and follow the "by car" indications.

  • By train :

The closest train stations are Briançon (20 kilometers/minutes) in France, and Bardonnechia and Oulx in Italy.

There's a night train from Paris to Briançon, where you can hop on a shuttle bus that takes you straight to our hotel (you can book with us in advance, and have a look here).

Another option, which is growing popular, is to take a TGV train from Paris to either Bardonecchia or Oulx, on the Paris-Milan line. In summer, stop in Bardonechia, where we'll come and get you (if you give us some warning).
