Les Fermes de Vercland, 727 Route de Chez Renard, Vercland, Samoens, 74340, France

Driving from the UK is usually the cheapest way to get to the Alps. Budget around £450 return via the Eurotunnel. It takes about 9 hours from Dover.
Leave on Friday night to avoid the traffic and stay in a cheap and cheery hotel in Troyes or The Val Moret , a motel about 5 hours from Calais, en route with a spa and fantastic food. 

If you are a single parent family, and you would like to share the drive, get in touch. We'll try to find you some fellow travellers to car po! 


We recommend the train as it is the most Eco way to travel. 

'I was wary of going by train as it looked like an epic journey but turns out, it was really easy!' Isabel and Ossian, 7. 

Go to  and book an alert for tickets to Cluses, 74, France. You will need to change stations in Paris.  We will come down to collect you and your bags from the station in Cluses.

Easyjet, Swiss Air and BA fly to Geneva. 
If you are hiring a car, just make sure that you hire it from the SWISS side not the french side as it will make your drive much easier.
