NOTES

  1. The French motorway system is part pay and part free. It will cost you approximately €40 to travel from Calais to Souillac (17 miles from the house), all of the journey on motorways.
  2. French route directions tend to give the name of the major town at the end of the motorway. Therefore a general awareness of French geography and its motorway system is helpful!

the route

  • From Calais take A26 direction PARIS.
  • Continue until A1 intersection. Take A1 direction PARIS.
  • Shortly after Charles de Gaulle Airport, north of Paris, take A3 direction BORDEAUX.
  • Take a series of motorways, A3/A86/A6, around the east of Paris. Simply follow direction BORDEAUX and NANTES.
