By Road

The villa is just 10km from the nearest motorway junction (A9 at Le Boulou), as shown on our map page.  We will send out detailed travel instructions  to find the house with the booking confirmation.

For crossing the channel there is the Eurotunnel shuttle or P & O and Norfolk line ferries from Dover, LD lines ferries from Dover, Newhaven and Portsmouth (both now operated by DFDS Seaways) and Brittany ferries from Portsmouth, Poole and Plymouth. If you prefer to travel by ferry avoiding Dover, Folkestone and Calais we can now offer our guests a 20% discount on Brittany Ferries fares if you book our property through their site. Please contact us first for booking details.

Holiday France Direct - Save on Brittany Ferries when you book this property

France has an excellent motorway network, and there are several alternative routes from the channel ports. According to my map Calais to Perpignan is 1158km with an estimated driving time of 12 hours. Depending on how fast you drive, how many breaks you want to take, and whether you swap drivers it is possible to drive from the channel ports in one day - we prefer to be more leisurely and have one overnight stop.

Currently our favourite route avoids Paris and from Calais we go via Boulogne, Abbeville, Rouen, Dreux, Chartres, Orleans, Vierzon, Chateauroux, Limoges, Brive-la-Gaillarde, Cahors, Montauban, Toulouse, Carcassonne and Perpignan.  Part of this route between Rouen and Orleans is non-motorway (saves on the tolls!), but mostly it is still dual carriageway and reasonably fast.

An alternative route from Orleans is over the Massif Central via Bourges, Clermont Ferrand and the famous new bridge at Millau with its spectacular views.

Both of the above routes from Orleans can also be followed after going either through or round Paris.

Another route which avoids Paris is Calais, Reims, Dijon, Lyon, Nimes, Perpignan. This is longer than the other routes and can be much busier in the summer.
