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 Les Rives du Luberon.
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 in mid/late morning, the Stena Line crossing from Rosslare can arrive late in the afternoon depending on the sailing date.
From Cherbourg, the shortest route takes you via Caen, down the western side of Paris and on to Beaune, Lyon and Orange before turning south east towards Cavaillon and your parc.
The alternative route from Cherbourg, avoiding Paris, is slightly longer - this takes you past Le Mans and Tours in the Loire Valley. From Tours head south east to Clermont-Ferrand, Saint-Etienne and pick up the A7 just south of Lyon.
It's a fair distance whichever way you choose, so you will need to break your journey. Why not have a city break en route and take in the sights of Paris? The Loire Valley is another great place for a stopover, it's famous for its wines and beautiful châteaux.
- Please note your accommodation on parc is available from 3pm on your day of arrival.
- Don't forget the time difference. Europe is 1 hour ahead!
- France has introduced driving restrictions in Paris and some other cities; a Crit'Air sticker should be displayed or you may be fined. Click here for more details.
