We are travelling from the midlands, UK, to the west of France by car for the first time. Trip is for 2 weeks in July. Not restricted to how short or long the trip ends up being but would like to get to Bordeaux and back if possible.
First time driving on the continent.
Looking for advice on;
- best value channel crossing options for 2 adults and normal saloon car. Also is it a better option to travel out to one port and back from another.
- accommodation recommendations (hotels/hostel/gites). Must have a private bathroom though.
- ‘must see’ sites along the west of France
Would appreciate any time and advice anyone can offer. Thank you
