The Aquitaine / Dordogne / Lot et Garonne region
The region is probably one of the most beautiful regions in France with such a large variety of landscapes, pretty villages, amazing towns steeped in History. A place to relax and enjoy a carefree, stress free vacation. We are close to the county of Gironde, famous for it's vineyards and culture. Close to the Dordogne, famous for it's surrounding medieval villages and countryside, close to the Lot et Garonne, where the two rivers meet and offer an aray of various towns and market places..... so much to see! The City of Bordeaux is just an hour away which is just wonderful. Bergerac is just lovely and to eat your lunch at the side of the Dordogne river is truly special. Lots for families to do and for couples who really would like to get away from it all and enjoy all that this region has to offer. Amazing restaurants, good golf, horseriding, walking and cycling. The Summer usually sees temperatures around 30°. Generally from April onwards, shorts and T-shirts are required!

Best deals are usually found at LD Lines who sail from Dover to Bolougne/Calais. The journey by car from Bolougne normally takes about 8 hours. Tolls are not too expensive and the French Motorways are generally very good, and as at April 09 petrol averages at 1.35 Euro a litre and Diesel 1.12. 95% of lorries are not allowed to travel on a Sunday in France, so the roads are even quieter.
You can sail to Le Havre. It is personal taste at the end of the day, but it does mean less driving, but about the same time to get here.
Eurostar is also a good option!
