Calais – Dover: Why wait for the ferry it can feel like it will wait for you

Dec 15th, 2010 | By | Category: Travel

Travelling from France (Europe) to the UK is often a matter of making the timing work – if you seek a pleasurbale entry, a favorable arrival in that little old England.

The perfect solution I’ve found is a stay at La Matelotte – a four star hotel facing the sea at the mouth of the port of Boulogne. It has a 1 star Michelin restaurant and the next day the drive is about 25 minutes to Calais. A private garage is offered at 12 euros per night and the sandy beach and marine centre are right there, just across the road.

See it – try it – enjoy a treat in Boulogne on your way to Calais

Happy Travels,
