Travelling by Ferry & Eurotunnel

Thanks to the Eurotunnel and a vast choice of ferry crossing, taking your car to the continent has never been easier. The Ile d'Oléron is located just off the coast from Marennes and is linked to the mainland by a road bridge.

For an easy journey take the overnight sailing from Portsmouth to St Malo and then head south on the main road, bypassing Rennes and Nantes, giving a total drive time of approximately 4 and a half hours.

For a greater choice of sailing times, do consider the Brittany Ferries sailing from Portsmouth to Caen. There are excellent motorway connections from Caen so although the journey is 90km longer, the overall journey time should only take an extra hour.

Travelling from Calais (772 km)? Take a break and try out our parcs in Normandy and Picardy. Alternatively take the more southern route (808km) and have a city break in Paris, or stop in the lovely Loire Valley and spot a château or two.
