The conference will take place at hotel Eurotel Victoria in Villars in the Swiss Alps. Situated only 2 hours from Geneva, the Villars-Gryon region with its vineyards and pastures, typical villages and world famous destinations, offers postcard Swiss charm.

Access

Villars can be reached easily by train or car. It is connected with Geneva international airport (GVA) by a frequent train service. Note that Geneva airport is a main hub of the easyJet low cost airline. The railway station is located right under the airport terminal.

People coming from France might consider taking the TGV to Geneva or Lausanne (less than 4 hours from Paris).
You can reach Villars by train. The Swiss Federal Railways (CFF in French, SBB in German) offer direct trains from Geneva airport to Bex. Travel duration is approximately 1:20 from Geneva and 35 minutes from Lausanne.

Note: you can also reach Villars via Aigle (the town just before Bex) and take a bus, but going via Bex is much nicer!
When arriving in Bex (point A on map below), you must change train and take the scenic Bex-Villars-Bretaye railway line. Take this train to Villars (travel duration is 40 minutes). Villars is the final station (point B).

Timetables are available from the Swiss Federal Railways (look for trains from Geneva airport to Villars-sur-Ollon).
When arriving in Villars (point C), you have to walk 5 minutes to reach the Eurotel Victoria hotel. Follow the main street (in the same direction as the train was heading) until it splits in two. Go right (uphill) and stay on that road until you see the hotel (point D).
