Take the Autoroute in the direction of Lausanne and Montreux from the airport. Further on follow the signs for Simplon or Brig. Turn off the motorway at Sierre (around 110 miles from Geneva) in the direction signposted “Val d’Anniviers”. This is quite a serious mountain road and those unfamiliar with mountain driving are recommended to take it slowly. Please note that convention dictates that you should give way to any Post Bus coming in the opposite direction and pull in to allow yourself to be overtaken. Your passengers will enjoy wonderful views up and down the valley, even if you must keep your eyes on the road!
The route takes you first to Vissoie (journey time: 25 mins) a pretty village which is the administrative base for Val d’Annivier and a good pausing point if you so wish. At the central square of Vissoie turn left onto the route signposted “St Luc”. You will arrive in St Luc around 15 mins later.
