Driving to the Alps is a great way to experience France and see some spectacular sights along the way. Stop over on route, come and go on your own timetable, have a car in resort and even bring some extra luggage! You can also make some great savings for your family, (by removing the cost of the flights) which can add up to quite a lot in the peak season.

Greater flexibility and super savings
You can save up to £250 per person from our normal holiday prices (that’s quite a lot for a family of 4!) and still receive the same great package of accommodation, catering and inclusive activities.
We don’t think that you really need a car in resort, but having one gives you greater flexibility to explore the area; to take what luggage you like and to arrive and depart on your own timetable. You can even benefit from an extra day or so in resort by coming and going at your own pace.
Driving to the Alps
Driving through France is a journey enriched with interesting things to see and do. It’s not a difficult drive (about 8 hours on the French side to Morzine) and made all the more pleasant if you stop over at any number of tourist spots along the way.
Continental motorways are fast and generally traffic free, fuel is well priced and they have plenty of service stations and rest areas with play parks for kids to blow off some steam. The tolls are about €60 each way, but if you are not in a rush then take the N-roads - this way you can avoid the tolls and see more stunning countryside to boot!
Once in resort, parking is free and easy. All our properties have ample parking onsite or close by.
