Ferry Ports

The ferry ports of St Malo and Caen are within 90 minutes drive, with Cherbourg approximately 2 hours away.


Le Havre is approximately 2½ hours away, with Boulogne and Calais around 3½ - 4 hours away, for those preferring a shorter channel crossing.


The good news here is that French roads are generally much quieter than the equivalent UK network.




There are currently no tolls payable on the routes from St Malo, Cherbourg or Caen, but allow around 10 Euros from Le Havre and 20-25 Euros from Boulogne or Calais.


Speed cameras are very much a part of French roads these days, and the Gendarmes operate frequent speed enforcement checks, so please use the roads carefully and safely as excessive speed is not tolerated and routinely punished.


Please don't forget that driving is on the right hand side of the road throughout Continental Europe.




Dinard airport is approximately 90 minutes away with no tolls payable along the way. 


Rennes airport is also approximately 90 minutes away from La Herpinière, with no tolls payable en route.
