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
- No extra charges for skis/snowboards or for extra luggage
However the direct service to Moutiers is not available for 21/22 season. There is (as of November 2021) a train at 10.22 from St Pancras arriving at Moutier 19.47 requiring a change from the Gare du Nord to the Gare de Lyon in Paris. The return is convenient leaving Moutiers at 9.50 am to arrive in London at 17.39. (Bourg-St-Maurice for Les Coches has similar times). These timings make an overnight stay in Paris on the way out together with a convenient train back to London a viable combination. Saturday night in Paris could be a very nice way to start your family holiday.

Travelling to resort by car
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.
