From Turin

From Turin you follow the signs for Sestriere/Pinerolo and the SR23. Follow this road until you pass Pinerolo on your right. Continue along the SR23 following signs for Sestriere. You will pass through several villages the largest and most notable being Perosa Argentina. Here the road continues to climb and meander along the valley. You will eventually come to a small village called Depot. Directly after the right hand bend as you enter the village is a small road on the left which leads down into Chambons. Drive into the main piazza and take the right hand road (Via Carlo Alberto) and we are 60m on the left opposite the church.

From France

Follow signs for Turin/Frejus Tunnel. Once you have arrived on the Italian side of the tunnel follow signs for Sestrierre/Cesana. Once in Sestriere stay on the SR23 and follow signs for Pinerolo. The first village after Fenestrelle is called Depot. In the middle of this small village is a turning to the right down a steep slope. This brings you over the bridge and into the village of Chambons. Drive into the main piazza and take the right hand road (Via Carlo Alberto) and we are 60m on the left opposite the church.
