Travelling by Ferry & Eurotunnel

Ferries are a relaxing and convenient way to travel. With a wide variety of ferries available from Ireland to France, taking your own car to the continent makes great sense, and don’t worry about driving abroad if it’s your first time – we can help you with our recommended ferry and driving routes to help you hit the open road en route to La Bastide en Ardèche.

To minimize the journey in France take an overnight crossing to Cherbourg. Irish Ferries operate sailings from Rosslare and Dublin to Cherbourg, while Stena Line sail from Rosslare to Cherbourg. Please note while Irish Ferries normally arrive in Cherbourg mid/late morning, the Stena Line crossing can arrive late in the afternoon depending on the sailing date.

From Cherbourg the route is surprisingly straight forward - take the main road to Caen and then head south to Le Mans, Tours and Clermont-Ferrand. It's only 240km to your parc from Clermont-Ferrand on the shortest route.

Just south of Tours is our parc Le Parc de Fierbois, why not break the journey with an overnight stop and spot a château or two in the beautiful Loire Valley.

  1. Please note your accommodation on parc is available from 3pm on your day of arrival.

  5. Quick converter: 50 miles is just over 80km.
