Chateau of the Loire

The Loire Valley is one of the most popular destinations in France.  British tourists visit there all year round, travelling around the beautiful countryside, cruising along the river and discovering the magnificent Chateaux of this historic part of the country.

The best way to get around this region is by car, which gives you the freedom and flexibility to explore not only well-known sites such as Chenonceau and Chambord but also visit the wine areas such as Saumur and Angers, the home of Cointreau. But what is the best way to get there? Do you fly, perhaps to Nantes and then pick up a hire car when you arrive? Or do you take your own car on a more leisurely route and take the cross channel ferry to France?

The Infographic below, created and recently published by Brittany Ferries, shows a family of four travelling to the Loire Valley and compares flying with taking the cross channel ferry. For a family, Brittany’s ferry to France crossing is an attractive option.  Although taking longer in time, it’s much less stressful and you have the convenience of your own car whilst you are on holiday, packed with bikes etc with no excess luggage charges.  See what you think!
