  Le Havre 210 kms (130 miles)

If you haven't travelled on the cross channel ferries from Portsmouth recently you'll be in for a treat. Most of the large ferries have cinemas, a selection of restaurants, shops, children's play areas and some even have a swimming pool. We would recommend cabins for overnight sailings and these can also be booked for day crossings.

We have listed below the various ferry operators and their routes.

LD Line Ferries
LD Line Ferries operate the Portsmouth to Le Havre route. The crossing time is approximately 5.5 hours. In addition LD Lines also operate a daily ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe - crossing time is 4 hours.

Brittany Ferries
Brittany Ferries sail from Portsmouth to either Cherbourg, Caen or St Malo and also from Poole to Cherbourg. In the summer months there is the option of using the high speed ferry on the Poole to Cherbourg route which takes just 135 minutes.

Brittany Ferries also sail to Roscoff from either Plymouth or Cork. Although a longer drive to the properties it does offer a direct route from Southern Ireland and an alternative if travelling from the West of England.

Condor Ferries - Operate to St Malo from Poole and Weymouth.

Irish Ferries - Run from Rosslare to Cherbourg and Roscoff.

By Eurotunnel
The Channel Tunnel from Folkstone to Calais offers another car route to France. The drive from Calais to the properties is quite long and is on toll motorways. However EuroTunnel do frequently have some very good offers so may be an option, especially for those situated in the South East of England.

By Plane & Rent a Car
There are four airports in the area - Dinard (near St Malo), Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre. There are flights from London Stansted and East Midlands to Dinard with RyanAir. You may also be able to obtain flights from other UK regional airports to one of these airports.

If you are flying into the area you will ideally need a car for your holiday. Car hire is available from Holiday Autos.
