Car

Vaujany is an hour from Grenoble and only 570 miles from Calais (of which 535 miles is motorway). It is certainly doable in a day. However, why not enjoy the scenic drive on the way down? Reims, Dijon or Lyon make for interesting stop-offs if you prefer to break up the journey.

French motorways are usually free-flowing and relatively pleasant. For the up to date info visit ViaMichelin or the AA route finder. The last part is as follows:

Take the A480 from Grenoble and take exit no. 8 ‘Vizille – stations de l’Oisans, then take the main road RN91 to Bourg d’Oisans. At Rochetaille take the left onto the D527 towards Allemont and Vaujany.
