Driving Instructions
From Turin Airport. Take the Turin Ring Road (Tangienziale) and join the A32 motorway. Leave the A32 at Oulx and follow the signs for Cesana and Montgenevre (Montgenegro). At Cesana take the road for the Col de Mongenevre. Continue on this road through Claviere and into France until you reach Briancon. At Briancon follow the signs for Gap. At Argentiere turn right and follow the signs for Puy St Vincent. After about 5 miles you will pass a garage on your right and a supermarket. Turn left here and go up the mountain to Puy St Vincent 1400. Go through the village and take a left turn to Puy St Vincent 1600. Travel time is about 2 hours 45 minutes.

From Nice Airport. Take the A8 motorway towards Marseille and Aix en Provence. Continue on this road until you reach Aix en Provence and then take the A51 towards Sisteron and Gap. At the end of the motorway follow the signs for Tallard. After about 5 miles take a left turn (D942). At the end of this road turn right onto the N94. Continue on this road to Argentiere where you turn left at the sign for Puy St Vincent. Follow the signs for Puy St Vincent through the town. After about 5 miles you will pass a garage on your right and a supermarket. Turn left here and go up the mountain to Puy St Vincent 1400. Go through the village and take a left turn to Puy St Vincent 1600. Travel time is about 4 hours.

From Calais. The best route we have found is A26 to Reims then A4 and back onto the A26 to Troyes. Then join the A5 to Dijon and Lyon. Just before Lyon take the A46 and then follow the signs for Chambery and Grenoble. Join the A43 and go through Chambery. Continue on the A43 to the Frejus Tunnel and into Italy. After the tunnel you will need to turn off the motorway after about 2 miles and follow the signs for Cesana and Montgenevre (Montgenegro). At Cesana take the road for the Col de Mongenevre. Continue on this road through Claviere and into France until you reach Briancon. At Briancon follow the signs for Gap. At Argentiere turn right and follow the signs for Puy St Vincent. After about 5 miles you will pass a garage on your right and a supermarket. Turn left here and go up the mountain to Puy St Vincent 1400. Go through the village and take a left turn to Puy St Vincent 1600. Travel time is about 10 hours but can vary considerably depending on the traffic and weather conditions.

There are no petrol stations at Puy - the nearest ones are at Argentiere (but this is a credit card only outside supermarket opening hours) and just outside Briancon. So make sure that you have enough petrol to get you there! On your departure, if you are leaving early to catch your plane the first services are on the A51 about 60 miles from Puy!!!

Please note that you MUST have snow chains for your car. Weather conditions can change very rapidly and without them you will be completely stuck! It is also sensible that you make sure that you know how to fit your snow chains to your tyres because when you need them it will be cold, wet and not the ideal time to work your way through a set of instructions in a foreign language - we've done it and its no way to start a holiday!!!
