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
At last we have snow, and lots more forecast. We still have availability, but the phones are now ringing! so book you ski break now.
