Driving times from ports:
Bilbao 3hrs; Santander 4hrs; St Malo 10hrs; Cherbourg/Le Havre/Caen 11hrs; Calais/ Boulogne 12hrs.
We can provide route guides. A crossing into Northern Spain (Bilbao/ Santander) gives a very easy drive to us. Otherwise a crossing to one of the more westerly Channel ports saves time, best driving route via Bordeaux, the A64 autoroute passes close to Lourdes.
