Traveling by car

map_chaletFrom Calais it takes approximately 9 to 11 hours to get to Puy St. Vincent, and just around 990km. It is motorway all the way to Oulx.

 

Take the A26 from Calais to Troyes – A5/A31 then A6 to Dijon – A6 to Lyon – A43 to Oulx (Italy)– SS24 to Briancon.  Once in Briancon follow “Toutes Directions” and then Gap/Sisteron. You go round Briancon and then out on the main road heading south on the N94. Approximately 5 kilometres past Briancon and after a main roundabout, at the village of Prelles, take a right-hand turn signposted to Puy St. Vincent (and Les Vigneaux and Vallouise). Follow this minor road for 15 minutes all the way to Les Vigneaux. Drive straight through this little hamlet to the main road to Puy St. Vincent/Vallouise. Turn right at the obvious T-junction signposted Vallouise/Puy-St-Vincent and turn straight away left to Puy St. Vincent. Another 5 minute climb and you'll reach your destination.

You can buy a ticket for the Fréjus tunnel online, € 33 instead of € 55 (it takes 2 working days)

To avoid the Fréjus tunnel, you can take an alternative route: Take from Lyon the A43/A48 to Grenoble, from there to Gap, Embrun, Puy-St-Vincent. It's a 45 minutes longer drive.
