If you are traveling from the west of Britain then the Portsmouth ferry makes most sense – and can reduce the time on the road in France.

Anyone with children should definitely take a trip to the monkey sanctuary at Romagne, and if you like fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere, Le Relais is lovely.
