The best way to come to Vallouise if driving from the UK or from any direction North is through the Frejus Tunnel. This is because part of the road from Grenoble to Briancon has had a huge rock fall. The Frejus tunnel is expensive, but if you are coming on holiday you can get a substantial reduction down to 13 euros by ordering and paying for your pass on line. Make sure you print off the bar code! See this link in English: http://www.serrechevalier-reservation.com/en/pass-frejus/index.html
If you are coming to Vallouise for a walking holiday download this app. Its free and in English and really really good. Not only does it tell you info on all the walks, plus map of route etc, but also tells you all about the flora and fauna, and other points of interest you are likely to see on the walk. Once downloaded it also works when you don't have wifi. Download it now. http://rando.ecrins-parcnational.fr/en/
