TOP SITES FOR SELF DRIVE HOLIDAYS


Whether taking in the Normandy coastline with historical sites ranging from the Bayeux to D-Day landing zones or venturing further south towards Nice via the French Riviera’s immaculate countryside, a self-drive adventure is a great way to explore France at leisure. 

Enjoying the freedom of time and choice as you stop off wherever and whenever you like en-route to our parks is just one of many perks.

With our parks easily accessible from major road networks, what better way to get there than by simply packing up the car and hopping on a ferry before journeying to and around some of the most scenic regions in the country.

Our handy guide below highlights the nearest ferry ports in France to the park destinations we think are most suitable for a self-drive journey, which can help you decide whether you want a short-hop trip to the north, a full-scale journey to the south, or something in between.
