Calais to Le Repaire is 420 miles by road. Using the autoroutes and the ‘Periferique’ around Paris the journey usually takes around six hours by car. 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. The journey from Le Havre or Caens can be up to two hours shorter than that from Calais.
