Traveling 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 Valle Gaia.
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 shortest route takes you past Caen and down the west side of Paris (past Versailles) and across to Beaune. Head south on the A6 to Macon and then choose! You can either carry on towards Lyon and take the road east towards Chambéry, Turin, Genoa and Pisa before arriving at Valle Gaia. Alternatively take the road east towards Geneva, Chamonix and Mont Blanc before dropping down to Genoa and the coast.
With so many places to stop and explore en route, it will be easy to make the journey part of the holiday! We have some great parcs where you can break your journey - why not stop and sample the regional wines in Burgundy or take in the fantastic mountain views in the French Alps.
- 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.
- More time on the ferry or more time on the road? When comparing the different route options, do remember to allow for motorway tolls and fuel costs.
- Quick converter: 50 miles is just over 80km.
