Travelling to Normandy

Posted by Rosie

Location of Lenault
If you are thinking about visiting us here at Eco-Gites of Lenault here are all the different transport routes to get you here.  The times in brackets are the times from the port etc to get to us by car.  Be aware though that in August, those routes with tolls could be slower with larger numbers of cars on the roads and queues can build up at the toll booths.  Those routes from the west and north of us do not have any tolls to pay.

By Train to Normandy

Our closest local train stations are at Caen (1hr), Flers (35mins) and Vire (30mins) - No road tolls.

If you are hiring in Caen please do make sure if you are speaking to some-one on the phone that they know you want your car from Caen not Cannes.  Friends fell into this trap and arrived at Caen only to find the person had misunderstood them and their car was down on the south coast at Cannes.  If in doubt spell Caen to them.  Apparently it is a common problem.

I do hope this helps when planning your journey to Normandy and please do let me know if I have missed out any methods to get to us.
