Relax on your way to France

If you are thinking of travelling to France from the UK this year then why not take an early morning ferry from Portsmouth. This is a great way to go. Leave at 8.45 am and arrive in Caen mid afternoon feeling relaxed and fresh for your drive the other side. Pick seats by the kids play area and whilst they are having fun Mum and Dad can relax with a glass of French wine or a bite to eat whilst keeping an eye on them.

Why not stay the night before at the Portsmouth Marriott. I believe it's one of the best in the UK with beds that are so big you could sleep width ways and not have your head and feet overhanging. The food and the staff are first class too and it's just a 5 minute drive to the ferry port.

    welshwanderer,

     

    Great advice and what a way to see Western France. 

     

    That is the second good report on Portsmouth in a few days.  That has to be one nice property.  Will look forward to experiencing a stay there in the future.

     

    Thanks!

    Thanks Welshy,

     

    What are your opinions of the Cardiff Marriott, Swansea Marriott and the St Pierre in Chepstow? We're considering all three for an early autumn visit.

    Never did this as always have taken the train or plane. Didn't know about this but now I do! Thanks for the info!
