Travel to Montchavin - Les Coches

Ski La Source has provided as much information as we can about travel to the French Alps, namely Montchavin - Les Coches, where our accommodation is located.

Do ask us if we have questions, we usually have an answer for you.

Don’t forget to read our environmental travel tips at the bottom of this page. 

Environmentally Aware Travel

The train is a wonderful way to travel for the environmentally aware traveller; railways pollute the air less than other modes of transport.

Packed Lunches for the Journey

Bring your own packed lunch, rather than buying pre-wrapped sandwiches on-route. It makes the journey easier and cheaper too.

Reusable sandwich wrappers are available on Re-Wrap-It.

Alternatively, if you already have Tupperware at home then use this - it’s sometimes preferable the sandwiches don’t get squashed.

Look out for Boulangeries that now offer the famous French quiches in cardboard boxes.

France has made a big effort in environmentally friendly packaging but remember, there are microplastics in disposable cups and boxes.

Drinks on Route

Hot drinks

Don't forget to bring your own reusable travel mug, as using these will cut down on the use of plastic coffee cups with plastic lids.

Avoid vending machines, where you can’t use your own mug. Boulangeries and some service stations offer coffee from proper machines.

Most places provide wooden stirrers (as opposed to plastic) but we always bring our own spoon just in case.

We’ve travelled with a power inverter and mini kettle before so we can make our own hot drinks.

Remember, French stations aren’t great at providing a good cup of tea.

Water

Bring your reusable water bottle - most service stations in France will refill water bottles.

We have found a few have water taps outside, normally near the lorry section, by the lorry petrol pump or by the tyre air pressure gauge.

There are sometimes water taps at the airports to keep you topped up.

A water bottle is also useful to keep in a backpack whilst you are on the slopes.
