Ferry-to-France---DC-3.jpgLa Belle​ France

It should come as no surprise that France is the world's most popular holiday destination. From famous cities such as Paris, Rouen and A miens, to the dramatic cliffs and beautiful beaches of France's northern coastline, not to mention its fantastic artistic heritage, France has everything a tourist could ask for.

Northern France is an ideal destination for lovers of the great outdoors, with walking, sailing, fishing, cycling, kayaking, and golfing all available, set in France's beautiful forests, valleys and meadows.

If food and drink are more your thing, then be sure to follow Normandy's celebrated Cheese and Cider Route, stocking up on camembert, Pont L'Évênque, Calvados, and cider along the way. For the young (and the young at heart) you could also head a little further south to the most magical theme park in Europe: Disneyland Paris. Our port in Dieppe is our closest port to Paris, making it the ideal starting point for your journey. ​
