SAINTE FOY BUS STOP
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ: Ben’s Bus reps will greet you at Grenoble Airport. Our bus will drop you and pick you up from the bus stop opposite the Hotel Monal in St Foy Village. This is the town on the main road between Bourg St Maurice and Tignes / Val d’Isere. There is a purpose built ski resort, “St Foy Station” which is not on the main road and we do not stop there. If you are staying in St Foy Station, you would need to arrange onward transport, in advance, from our stop in St Foy village to St Foy Station. The St Foy Tourist Office can help you with this.
