Directions to Le Rucher
For those who like the details, here’s a Google Map for you to find us. If you want more specific directions, click here.
There is no sign at the driveway, but you will find 2 white walls with an open gate at the bottom of the drive. Come on up the hill and you are most welcome!
But for those who like the big picture. . . here we are at #3 above.
1 is Geneva Airport (only 15 minutes away)
2 is the famous fountain in the heart of Geneva
That’s the Jura Mountains in the background and the Alps are behind us in this photo. Both sets of mountains are visible from Le Rucher.
Getting to Le Rucher by Road
From the North of France
Come across the Jura mountain range: Follow the N5 through Morez, the Col de la Faucille and Gex at the foot of the Jura; stay on the N5 and on the first roundabout in Gex turn left (almost like a U turn) onto Avenue des Alpes (Direction Divonne). Go to the 2nd traffic light and turn right. Follow this road out of town and up a hill. Near the top of the hill the road Y’s. Be sure to stay to the right on Route de Pitegny. At the stop sign, go straight across. Follow Route de Pitegny to the end. At the T junction, turn left onto Route de Tutegny (Direction Grilly). You are now in downtown Tutegny! Drive through Tutegny. We are the last buildings on the left with farmland across the street from us. If you run out of buildings, turn around and go back to the first driveway (with white walls).
From the West or South of France
Use the A40 or N84 to Bellegarde. Then follow the N206, turning off to Collonges. Follow D984 to Gex. 5km after Chevry look for right turn signed Geneva and Cessy. After 1 km cross the N5 for Cessy. Take the 3rd exit out of the next roundabout and go past the church. Then turn right at the T-junction and right again at the roundabout. Take the 1st left, signposted Tutegny. Drive through Tutegny. We are the last buildings on the left with farmland across the street from us. If you run out of buildings, turn around and go back to the first driveway (with white walls).
From Lausanne on the N1 motorway towards Geneva, pass the Nyon turnoff, take the very next turnoff for Divonne/Coppet. At the exit traffic lights turn right towards Divonne and the French border (600 m from there). Go across the border. Go straight across the first roundabout. Turn left at the 2nd roundabout toward Grilly. At the next roundabout, continue straight across. Go through the village of Grilly. At the first small road outside of Grilly (you’ll see a wooden cross standing at this turnoff) fork right toward Tutegny. We are 0,8km further on the right, immediately after the Tutegny sign. We are the first buildings on the right. If you get into a residential area, you have gone too far. Turn around and go back to the last driveway with buildings on the left.
From Geneva (or the airport)
Go to the Ferney-Voltaire Douane (tunnel under the airport) and follow the N5 (signposted Gex) through Ferney, Ornex, Segny. 2km after Segny turn right for Cessy/Dechetterie, straight across at the roundabout, and at T-junction turn left and immediately right for Tutegny. Drive through Tutegny. We are the last buildings on the left with farmland across the street from us. If you run out of buildings, turn around and go back to the first driveway (with white walls).
