Planes, trains and automobiles. Getting there

This summer we have used the SeaFrance ferry quite regularly, and can recommend the Brasserie on board as a good lunch stop. We will be back to the Eurotunnel for the winter, having enough Tesco Clubcard deals for a couple of free crossings. Eurotunnel is great if you are travelling with your dog, as you can stay in the car with them.

  1. If you prefer a more relaxed trip, why not try Eurostar to Paris, and an overnight sleeper train to Briancon, arriving around 8am , just in time for a quick breakfast and a day on the slopes.

  2. Had a great overnight stay in the Hotel Bristol in Reims on Saturday evening. There was a huge Christmas Market in the street outside until 8pm, and loads of entertainers. We had a lovely meal in the Brasserie before heading off for bed later than intended. Didn’t help our planned early start though.

  3. For those of you driving over for the skiing, either from airports or UK, there is some useful information at
    including the telephone number to check road conditions on the Col du Montgenevre and the Col du Lauteret. Check the forecasts carefully, and if there is any hint of snow, call the Lauteret information line before you leave the airport on +33(0)4 92 24 44 44
