By Road

There are obviously various routes across the channel. The fastest and most regular is the fantastic Eurotunnel http://www.eurotunnel.com/uk/home/

Otherwise we recommend searching online for channel ferry crossings either direct through the Ferry lines:

DFDS Seaways
http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/

Brittany Ferries
http://www.brittany-ferries.co.uk

Stena Line

or using one of the many sites offering deals such as:

Once in France

As part of our service once we have received your booking confirmation we provide suggested routes including full details on how to find your holiday cottage, full address details and GPS co-ordinates. The drive time from Calais or Boulogne is about 10 hours not including stops for breaks or fuel.

FROM CHANNEL PORTS

To help you plan your journey, especially if you plan an overnight stay to break the journey, briefly, the best routes down to our region are:

If crossing Dover/Calais or other short crossings, pick up the Paris signs A26 E15. After 30-40 kms the auto route divides – follow Paris A1 E15. Follow the Bordeaux/Nantes then Orleans signs around the Paris priphérique taking the A10 to Orleans.

At Vierzon about an hour after Orleans you take the A71 to Clermont Ferrand. The autoroute continues past Clermont toll free to “Massiac” Junction 23 where you should leave the autoroute and continue on the N122 towards Aurillac.

Continue until reaching “Aurillac” and then turn left at the traffic lights marked “Rodez” on the D920 and continue until reaching “Montsalvy”. Follow the D920 road out of Montsalvy past the Spar super market which is open until 7pm towards Entraygues.

If you would prefer to avoid Paris and the traffic on the périphérique, an alternative and much more pleasant route is via Rouen and Chartres. From Calais take the A28 to Abbeville, then the A28 to Rouen, the A13 to Evreux then Dreux and the N12 and N154 to Chartres continuing on the N154 to pick up the N10 to Orleans and continue South as above from Vierzon.

If you‛re crossing to Le Havre or Caen, we would suggest you follow the Paris autoroute then eventually follow the N154 down around Evreux, Dreux and Chartres, and pick up the autoroute north of Orleans.

If crossing from more westerly arrival ports, it is best go via Poitiers and Limoges, and turn left at Uzerche on the N120 through Tulle and Aurillac and then to Montsalvy and Entraygues as described above..

From other directions get to Aurillac by way of your preferred route and follow thereafter the directions we provide with your final booking payment confirmation.
