By Road

The superb French Autoroute (Motorway) system makes driving here as easy as you could hope for. The main Motorways to this region are the A10 (from the north to Bordeaux), the A20 (from Paris via the A10, A71) to Toulouse and the A62 (from Toulouse to Bordeaux). The journey from Calais to Bordeaux is about 560 to 590 miles and should take around 8 hours. We are about 580 miles from Calais/Le Havre and 430 miles from St Malo. Cherbourg extends the drive by 2 or 3 hours. You can avoid the Peripherique at Paris by taking (from Charles de Gaulle Airport) the A 86 and A (and N) 186 and the A10 direction Bordeaux. The A 10 divides at Orleans where we recommend taking the A 71 (direction Vierzon and Toulouse) and then the A 20 to North or South Cahors.
