Travelling to resort by train
Advantages of travelling by train:
- Very short transfers – Moutiers to Reberty approx. 45 mins and Bourg-St-Maurice to Les Coches is about 20 mins.
- You can relax, watch the countryside roll past and arrive feeling fresh.
- Convenient departure and arrival times.
- No extra charges for skis/snowboards or for extra luggage
There are plenty of indirect trains from St Pancras, with you changing in Paris, prior to your stop in the Alps (at either Moutiers station for Reberty or Bourg-St-Maurice for Les Coches). Guests can split the journey by spending the Saturday night in Paris if preferred, a lovely way to start your holiday! Contact Oui SNCF for more details.
Please click here for more info on our free transfer service to and from these stations.
Travelling by Car to the Alps
Driving to our resort of Ardent takes about 8 hours from Calais – this is using the motorway system, taking a short lunch break, a couple of ‘comfort’ stops and not breaking any speed restrictions. This also is subject to road traffic conditions and the weather!
To drive from Calais to either Les Coches or Reberty normally takes about 10 hours.
PLEASE NOTE: It is a legal requirement to carry snow chains in the Alps.
