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 your parc.
La Vallée is less than 25km from the western channel port of Caen Ouistreham, so if you really want to minimise the driving abroad, hop on the ferry from Portsmouth!
Brittany Ferries offer a good choice of day and night crossing to Caen Ouistreham. Day sailings take about 6 hours. They also operate a fast-craft crossing from Portsmouth to Cherbourg which only takes 3 hours to cross the channel - this normally departs in the morning, arriving in Cherbourg early in the afternoon.
The short channel crossings from Dover to Calais offer the greatest choice of departure times through both day and night. This route however, means more time on the road in France, with a distance of about 320km to drive.
- 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.
