Driving through France
A lot of our guests drive through France.
You need to allow about 15 hours driving from the northern ports. Breaking the journey with a stop-over in Limoges or Lyon area is recommended.
Taking the ferry one way and then meandering back through France over a few days is also an excellent option.
