Depending on the weather, driving to Peisey-Vallandry from Calais takes between 7 and 10 hours using the auto-routes, paid toll roads. Tolls can be paid by debit or credit card.
If you are driving it is law (not to mention sensible) to have the correct sized snow chains or snow socks in the car when driving in mountainous areas. It is a good idea to practise fitting them before your journey.
Make sure you have all the items required by french law in the vehicle.
