so you can focus on the fun stuff
//travel & transfers

//getting to us  BY AIR


Having numerous airports within easy reach means Peisey-Vallandry is extremely well connected from all parts of the UK giving you an abundance of choice when flying. 


Being the nearest, with only a 1 hour and 30 minute transfer, Chambery (CMF) is the most conveniently located airport.  


Geneva (GVA) has more frequent flights and options from UK airports but is a longer transfer at 2 hours and 45 minutes.

At transfer times of 2 hours and 30 minutes it’s also worth checking the prices and availability from either Lyon (LYS) or Grenoble (GNB) airports. 

//getting to us  BY RAIL


Travelling to us by Eurostar from London St.Pancras takes approximately 7 hours and is a comfortable and convenient option. There are also train routes from Geneva, Chambery and Genoble which are often cheaper than transfers. You have the choice of arriving at either Landry train station, which is a 15 minute transfer to Chalet Algonquin, or Bourg St.Maurice which is a 25 minute transfer.  

//getting to us  BY ROAD


Driving to us from the UK is quicker than you may think and has it’s advantages. Depending on the number of passengers the price per person can be very reasonable as ferry crossings are regular and cheap and the Eurotunnel is a very fast and convenient way of crossing the Channel. Once at Calais or Dunkirk the journey is approximately 9 hours and 30 minutes excluding any stops. With no luggage allowance you can pack your car with everything you’ll need and there’s no additional cost for bringing extra ski baggage. Taking the toll roads will cost approximately €150, avoiding these will add more time to your journey. For the best routes, traffic updates and accurate toll road costs use the Via Michelin website.

Having snow chains in your vehicle is a legal requirement and they are essential for your safety when driving in snowy conditions on the steep and winding roads up towards Moulin. A GB sticker (if you don’t have a GB symbol on your number plate), 2 breathalysers, a high visibility jacket, a warning triangle and headlight deflectors are also legal requirements when driving in France. All of these items can be bought online or from your local automotive store and are relatively low in price. 


There are designated parking spaces available at the chalet for you to use.
