Know Before You Go - Our Travel Tips
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 Hippocampe.
The short sea crossings offer the greatest choice of departure times, with P&0 Ferries and the Eurotunnel operating both day and night. It's a fair distance from Calais, but it is motorway nearly all the way!
Burgundy, is ideally placed for a stopover. Alternatively take the route via Paris, Orléans and Clermont-Ferrand - not only is this way shorter, you get to drive over the impressive Millau Viaduct.
Why not enjoy have a stopover near Paris and take the chance to do a spot of sightseeing? If you want to enjoy the drive at a leisurely pace, the Dordogne and Ardèche regions also have plenty to offer and are great places for a break.
For a real treat, how about a mini cruise to Spain? Brittany Ferries operate sailings from Portsmouth to Bilbao and Santander, and from Plymouth to Santander. Enjoy a good nights sleep on the ferry and you will be ready for the drive when you land. From Bilbao to Hippocampe is less than 700km (via Biarritz, Toulouse and Carcassone).
With Brittany ferries you can mix and match your routes, so you could sail out direct to Spain and enjoy a scenic drive home via the Dordogne and Loire Valley to St Malo or Caen, before getting a sailing back to Portsmouth.
