Getting here - ferries

If you have made your booking with Chez Nous, they offer pretty good discounted fares with most ferry companies. If using their service you will need your Chez Nous reference - CNO 3955.

For ferry users, Dover to Calais is the cheapest with P&O or Sea France, but for those better placed for Portsmouth, LD lines to Le Havre is significantly cheaper than Brittany Ferries to Caen or Cherbourg.

Getting here - flying

SkyScanner is a useful website for checking multiple low-cost carriers at the same time.

If you are hiring a car, it is probably not a good idea to use the company recommended by the airline you opt for unless they are offering a good discount. The reason for this is that the queue at the airline associated hire-car company is enormous, whilst the other companies' desks are virtually deserted.

Even at tiny Bergerac airport, most hire-car companies are represented.
