 LOCATION

ROUTE ASSISTANCE

We recommend that you purchase a map (we use the Michelin Motoring Atlas of France) before venturing to France in your car. You will find this very useful for locating the small local towns and villages for any shopping and necessary provisions should you get lost!

In any case you can call us for help on 00 33 (0)2.35.94.12.12 or 00 33 (0)608.109 134

The AutoRoute (« peage », so named because you pay to use it), is by far the simplest route to take and has regular service stations with excellent facilities. There are other rest stops but please note that these only provide French toilets.

On entering the Peage take the ticket from the machine. You pay when you exit the road with either Euros ( € ) or credit card. Allow £4 (6 € each way).

Speed limit are 130 kph (81mph) when the conditions are dry and 110 kph (69mph) when it is raining. You will be driving on the right-hand side of the road (I hope!). Please make sure that you have a 'green card' on your motor insurance and carry a copy of all your vehicle documents with you.

You must also display a GB sticker, have a warning triangle in your vehicle, carry a spare set of bulbs and don't forget to convert your headlamps for left-hand drive use. This is the law in France.

Your journey from Calais (or Le Havre) to the lake should take approximately 1.5 hours and you should aim to arrive at the lake at midday at the earliest. Plan your journey accordingly.

If you have caught an early ferry then we suggest you use one of the rest stops en route and/or do some shopping. You will then arrive at the lake both refreshed and prepared for your first night’s fishing.
