06 Aug Britain is full! France is back on the amber list – escape across the Channel with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle
You’ll get much more for your money across the Channel. Enjoy fine food, superb wine, wonderful sunny vistas from coastlines to vineyards, all at significantly lower prices than booked-up British equivalents, and with much better availability. Plus the unique advantage that Eurotunnel Le Shuttle provides with its safe, convenient and contact-free means of travel. In other words, no need to mix with the Le Hoi-Poloi!. Secure in your bubble, passengers can simply check-in without leaving their cars, drive on board, and 35 mins later arrive at the gateway to Europe and the much-anticipated freedom of a holiday!
Missed out on the Cotswolds?
If availability and cost have kiboshed your Cotswold holiday plans, Eurotunnel Le Shuttle has some great French alternatives loaded with picturesque villages, beautiful landscapes and plenty of flora and fauna too. Limousin is the rural heart of France, full of glorious hilltop villages and wonderful scenery to explore. Charming stone houses are surrounded by green fields and valleys, and the charming city of Limoges is an option if you want a bit more excitement! Or further south, the Luberon area in Provence is swathed in lavender fields, orchards and vineyards, with some of the most attractive medieval villages that may remind you of the Cotswolds but deliver even more.
Longing to build sandcastles, but finding it tricky to find anywhere to stay in Cornwall?
Head to Brittany as an alternative on the other side of the Channel. Brittany is only an hour further to drive than London to Cornwall once you arrive in Calais. There are plenty of quaint towns to explore on the way through northern France. Both Brittany and Cornwall are filled with quintessential seaside towns and villages, glorious sandy beaches and plenty of opportunity for surfing and stunning coastal walks.
Fancy a city break?
Bath is great for a staycation, but sister city Aix-en-Provence is just as fabulous. Both have fantastic architecture, history, great shopping and plenty of options for dining out. And both are also spa towns, with Aix famous for its many fountains which can easily go head to head with Bath and its ancient Roman baths.
Eurotunnel Le Shuttle takes your car and everyone in it from Folkestone to Calais in just 35 minutes, and then the efficient autoroutes of France will whizz you to your destination. With vehicle charges including up to 9 passengers, it’s a very cost effective way to get there.
