The quickest and easiest route to Chatel from Geneva is taking the route round the north side of Lake Geneva (Lac Leman). Bear in mind you will require a Swiss Vignette for the motorway (costs 40€) which can be bought easily at the border. From Geneva follow the E25/E62 all the way round to Junction 21. Exit the motorway and take the 201 route to Chatel which will become the D22 when you cross the Swiss/French border. Continue along this route until you reach Chatel. In Chatel, at the church, take a sharp left on to the D228A, Route de Linga and continue all the way along to the junction. At the junctions turn left on to Route de Pre la Joux. Continue along the road and you will see the Hotel Eau Vive on your left.
