TRAVEL

The rural setting of La Sagerie makes a car essential. Travel by car involves the use of Cross-Channel Ferries or the Eurotunnel and a few notes about these follow.


Brittany Ferries

Brittany Ferries operate from Poole to Cherbourg and from Portsmouth to Caen, Cherbourg, le Havre and St. Malo. The crossing time varies from 4 hours (Poole - Cherbourg) to 5 1/2 hours (Portsmouth - Caen), with the S. Malo crossing being overnight. In the Summer there is a fast ferry that takes about half that time.

In Summer a fastcat operates from Portsmouth to Cherbourg, and this crossing takes about 3 hours.
Travel to La Sagerie from Caen, Cherbourg or St. Malo takes from 1 to 1 1/2 hours, while le Havre takes a little longer.


LD Lines

DFDS Seaways operate from Newhaven to Dieppe. The crossing from Newhaven takes about 4 hours but the time from there to La Sagerie is longer, at about 3 1/2 hrs.


The Short Sea Crossing

Several Ferries operate from Dover and Folkstone, and there is the Channel Tunnel to be considered. The travel time from Calais to La Sagerie is about 4 1/2 hrs. (Information from the RAC Route Planner)
