Ferry crossings: Nearest ferry port is St Malo (served by Brittany Ferries and Condor), 3 hours' drive away, almost all on dual carriageway. Brittany Ferries' ports of Roscoff (5 hrs away), also used by Irish Ferries; the Normandy port of Caen (4 hrs) is served by Brittany Ferries and P&O, as is Cherbourg (4.5 hrs) - which also has crossings via Irish Ferries. The new toll-free dual-carriageway road across Normandy has reduced journey times from Cherbourg or Caen, and makes for very easy driving. Dover to Calais is convenient for many (roughly 6 hrs to the Vendée), with P&O, Hoverspeed, SeaFrance and others, while anyone travelling from Scotland and the North of England might want to consider P&O's ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge or the Superfast Ferries route from Rosyth to Zeebrugge (around an 8-hr drive - mostly on motorways - to the Vendée).
