Ferry & Eurotunnel

With a huge choice of ferry operators and routes – not to mention Eurotunnel - taking your car to the continent has never made more sense. Channel crossings can be booked online as part of a package, and don’t worry about driving abroad if it’s your first time – we can help you with our recommended ferry and driving routes to help you hit the open road en route to La Baume.

Eurotunnel and the short sea sailings from Dover to Calais offer the greatest choice of departure times through both day and night.

From Calais you're on a good motorway nearly all the way. Head south on the main A26/A7 autoroute to Lyon, Orange and Aix-en-Provence, then turn east. There's less than 5km to drive to La Baume if you leave the motorway at exit 38-Fréjus from the A8.

If you prefer to take a western channel sailing, Brittany Ferries operate from Portsmouth to Caen Ouistreham with a choice of day and night sailings. The drive from Ouistreham is about the same distance as Calais, depending on your route. From Ouistreham you can head straight to Paris and then on down to Lyon, or you could take the Loire Valley option and drive via Le Mans, Tours and Clermont-Ferrand. From Clermont-Ferrand you can cut across to Saint-Étienne and pick up the A7 south of Lyon, or carry on straight down to the coast and Montpellier.

It's a fair distance so you will need to break your journey. Take a look at Le Domaine de l'Epervière in Burgundy - it's well placed for a stopover! If you want a more leisurely drive with a couple of stops - check out the great facilities on parc at La Croix du Vieux Pont, or why not have a city break and take in the sights of Paris. The Loire Valley is a great place for a stop over if you are coming from the West - from Tours to La Baume is just under 900km on the shortest route.

Travel Tips

  1. Please note your accommodation on parc is available from 3pm on your day of arrival.
