Getting There

We operate Saturday to Saturday as there are far more flight options into Grenoble and Lyon (our nearest airports) from places in Europe.

We are NOT able to arrange flights on behalf of our clients but we are more than happy to arrange transfers.

Our standard transfer will operate around the Norwegian Air flight(LAST YEAR) from London Gatwick to Grenoble.  Transfer seats are charged at £30 per person each way.  

If you are planning on taking another flight which does not fit with our transfer  times, we can organise a taxi for you. Please take a look at prices for taxi's below.

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.
