Directions to Chalet Brio and La Terrasse

Chalet Brio is situated in the small hamlet of L'Etelley between Samoens and Morillon. Midway between the three lifts up to the slopes, all of them just a couple of minutes drive away, the ski bus stops at the end of the road so it's not far to walk if you don’t have a car.
