Cherbourg Perpignan

Post by Karrie »

Anyone got experience of driving down from Cherbourg to Perpignan?

Would you go Rennes, La Rochelle, Bordeaux, Toulouse or

Caen, Le Mans, Tours, Borges, Clermont Ferrand, Montpellier?

Secondly anywhere that you'd recommend to stay overnight close to the motorways about 4 hours from Cherbourg on either route.
Thinking of doing this for the first time in 17 years of flying over! Any other advice very welcome. Live close to Poole ferry terminal hence Port of Cherbourg is only option.

We are thinking about driving again after many years of flying over and had looked forward to reading recommendations.

Anyway, we would probably travel via Bourges and stay at the hotel now called The Originals City, Hôtel Le Berry which according to Booking.com was renovated last year. We stayed there some time ago mainly because it had secure garage parking and the back of our car was full of personal belongings. The hotel was perfectly adequate for an overnight stay and well located. We had one of the best reasonably priced meals we have had in France in Bourges but sadly cannot recall the name of the restaurant. It was this time of year and there was torrential rain so we just wanted to get inside anywhere so it was a very lucky find.

At the time, some French friends of ours who travel between the North and South very often recommended a stop over at Massiac, and eating at la Poste.

Hope this helps and still waiting to hear from others who have done the journey recently.
