Directions to La Ferme de Florent from Geneva
From Geneva airport follow the green motorway signs for France (motorway signs are blue in France and green in Switzerland) along a dual carriageway.
At the 6th (approximately) set of lights turn left - signposted to France, Lousanne and Geneva centre.
Very soon (20 meters) after these lights there is a right hand turn signposted to France, Geneva, La Pralle (E25)
Continue along this road through several tunnels, including the Vernier and Chevres tunnel.
When the road divides stay in the lane for France. You'll go through the border between Switzerland and France.
After the border control take the 2nd lane from the right signposted Chamonix and the A40 to Annemasse, but DO NOT come off the motorway at Annemasse. You will need €1.90 for the toll but can pay by card if you prefer.
Come off the A40 at Bonneville (toll €1.10) turn immediately right and then join the main road.
Take the 3rd exit at the roundabout opposite Mr Bricolage and follow the road straight through the small housing estate.
Turn left at the T junction and go through St Pierre en Faucigny, over the railway line. At the next roundabout turn right, follow signs for Le Grand Bornand, Petit Bornand and La Clusaz.
You will follow a windy road up hill through Saxias, Petit Bornand and Entrement.Once you have finished the climb through the EntremontValley you will finally come to a T junction. Turn left for Le Grand Bornand (NOT right for La Clusaz).
Follow this road into Le Grand Bornand and at the first roundabout turn left for Chinaillon (you should see a rusty cow sculpture opposite roundabout!).
When you reach the village of Chinaillon continue over a tiny roundabout and you will have La Jalouvre restaurant on your left, after this is Les Dimes on your right, take the right hand turn immediately after this.
Follow the road down and over a little bridge. Turn left at the bottom and the road will continue on past the ski lifts on your right.
After the shops the road turns left, just before this take the small road on your right as if you are going straight on. Follow this road as it curves to the right.
At the fork take the right hand fork, we are a couple of hundred yards down here, the old farmhouse on your right. Parking is on the right just before our chalet.
The font balcony and main door is on the opposite side of the building. Please just ring the bell.
