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 lovely Ile de Rè is located just off the coast from La Rochelle and is linked to the mainland by a road bridge (toll charges apply).

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 hours.

For a greater choice of sailing times, do consider the Brittany Ferries sailing from Portsmouth to Caen. Although a longer journey there are excellent motorway connections from Caen.

Travelling from Calais? Take a break and try out our parcs in Normandy and Picardy.
