A different way to travel. By a recent user:
We found the whole rail experience very relaxing compared to flying. As we travel from the North of England we tale the opportunity to break the journey in London on the way out and Paris on the way back, we wouldn't do this if we flew.
The journey is very relaxing, the trains comfortable (especially on the French side) and the service great. It's become a part of holiday we rely enjoy, the cost difference is not great for us and far outweighed by the experience of a really relaxing way to travel.

The drive to Montgenevre will take around 10 hours from Calais. It is best to use a SatNav if you have one however be aware that using a warning facility against speed traps in France is now illegal and you can be fined up to 1500 euros.
The address for the Go Montgenevre office for your SatNav is Rue Chantelevent, 05100, Montgenevre, France. There is no number on the road.
The best route is through Reims, Troyes, Dijon, Bourg en Bresse, east of Lyon, Chambery, Frejus Tunnel*, Oulx and Montgenevre.
Some SatNavs try to divert your via Paris -this will take longer despite what it tells you.
2. The Bourg en Bresse route is an option from Dijon that is slightly longer in distance but will give you a quicker journey time and quieter road.
3. Via Grenoble. You can avoid going through the Frejus Tunnel by going via Grenoble. it is cheaper in terms of tolls but will add 45-50 mins to your journey time.
*Frejus Tunnel costs 38 euros each way -but you can get a 7 day return for 44 euros
