By Train

Travel to the mountains by train has been made much easier with the two weekly trains direct from London to Bourg Saint Maurice, providing access to the whole of the French Alps. With tables and electric sockets available in the trains, you can make use of the travel time by watching a film on your laptop, catching up on some reading, or God forbid, doing some work.

One leaves on the Friday evening, for the keen skiiers and travels through the night, getting you into resort in time for an extra half day skiing in the afternoon. Another leaves on Saturday morning and arrives in Bourg Saint Maurice in the evening. There are also daily trains throughout the week from London to the Alps, but for the gain in extra flexibility, you are required to change in Paris before the final leg down to the snowy peaks (raileurope.co.uk). From Bourg Saint Maurice you can get a bus, taxi or arrange a private transfer in advance up to Peisey-Vallandry 

Self-Drive

Driving to Peisey-Vallandry is always an option. It does however take most part of a day at 7-10 hours from Calais, you sometimes hear of people making it in less, but this is very dependent on traffic and weather conditions. Before you set on your way it may be worth using the route planning service www.viamichelin.com. It is pretty important to pack a pair of snow chains if you don’t have snow tires. The Gendarmerie (French police) are known to stop cars without them if the conditions are bad.

Parking is not a problem in Peisey/Vallandry with numerous free car parks and a covered car park of 70 spaces.
