Driving in France is easy and stress free compared to the UK and of course this way you don't have to let those precious bikes out of sight. We're roughly 3 to 5 hours away from Caen, Le Havre and Cherbourg and 6 to 7 from Calais. The motorways with tolls are reasonably priced and definitely worth using as they can cut hours off journey times. Expect to pay around 35 Euros each way from Cherbourg. Please ensure you bring headlight adapters and the relevant breakdown kit (see your ferry provider for up to date details)
For those who prefer to fly we can arrange transfers from Poitiers, La Rochelle and Tours airports otherwise car hire is easy to arrange from most airports. Flights can be found for bargain prices from Bristol, Manchester and Stansted as well as from Edinburgh, Southampton, Leeds, Gatwick and Nottingham Hire cars can be arranged for reasonable prices if you wish to fly into Nantes or Limoges,
Anyone wishing to take the train for all (or just the last part of their journey) can be picked up from Chatellerault, just 25 minutes away.
