BY CAR Driving to the French Alps could not be easier with the choice of the Euro Tunnel from Folkstone or the Ferry from Dover both taking you to either Calais or Dunkerque. Driving time across France is approximately eight hours with plenty of opportunities to stop and rest on the way. The motorways in France are mostly toll roads, and you can expect to pay approximately €60 on the journey from Calais to Les Getsor Morzine. Driving without having to pay the tolls takes approximately 3 hours longer so could be seen as more of a road trip with a stop over. Both Folkstone and Dover are easily accessible in the UK via the South Eastern motorway network. Alternative ferry routes are: Newhaven to Dieppe; Portsmouth to Le Havre, Caen, Cherbourg and St Malo; Poole to Cherbourg and St Malo; Weymouth to St Malo; Plymouth to Roscoff and more.
