By Car
Chateau du Loir has the nearest motorway exit and if you are coming from a northern ferry port you will probably join the A28 motorway and exit at Chateau du Loir. Chateau du Loir is a tad over 2 hours from Caen, (then a further 20 mins or so to the cottage on quiet roads). Of course you can avoid the motorways and take a more leisurely scenic route down.

 

By Ferry
It is about 2.5 hours drive from Caen which is the nearest ferry port France. Caen has regular ferries from Portsmouth in the UK. It is about 136 miles from Caen and mostly motorway.

The port of Calais is approximately 300 miles away and iust under a 5 hour drive. It is all motorway to within 7 miles of the cottage. Dover to Calais is the cheapest ferry route.
