Travelling by 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 Domaine de la Brèche.
The western channel ports are the closest to the Loire Valley. Brittany Ferries operate daily sailings from Portsmouth to St Malo - this is an overnight sailing normally departing at 8:15pm with a sailing time of approximately 12 hours.
The return sailing from St Malo to Portsmouth is normally a mid morning sailing - if you want to catch this, you will need a stopover close to the port. Alternatively you could mix and match your Brittany sailings and return from Caen Ouistreham, or Cherbourg.
There is a good choice of day and night crossings from Portsmouth to Caen Ouistreham with Brittany Ferries. From Caen it's around a 3 hour drive to Domaine de la Brèche - head south on the main road towards Le Mans, then sweep west towards Angers and down to Saumur.
If you prefer the short sea crossing from Dover to Calais, or the Eurotunnel, the drive is longer, but it's on a good motorway most of the way. The shortest route from Calais is via Rouen and Le Mans.
Alternatively, take the slightly longer (608km) southern route from Calais and indulge in a city break in Paris or even take in Disneyland® Paris.
- Please note your accommodation on parc is available from 3pm on your day of arrival.
- France has introduced driving restrictions in Paris and some other cities; a Crit'Air sticker should be displayed or you may be fined. Click here for more details.
- Don't forget the time difference! Europe is 1 hour ahead of UK time.
- More time on the ferry or more time on the road? When comparing the different route options, do remember to allow for motorway tolls and fuel costs.
- Quick converter: 50 miles is just over 80km.
