Train, Eurostar, TGV to Cannes and Nice.
A great way to travel is by train. They are very fast, comfortable and you are able to walk around and stretch you legs, whilst the train still slides through the miles. We have used Rail Europe and also the International Rail Programme, and both are as good as each other.
Drive to Southern France.
When the Children were younger we did this quite a few times. Buy an in-car DVD player, plus other gadgets from Halfords before you go and the time will fly by. You cannot beat the P&O Ferry crossing, we usually have breakfast on the crossing,so were set-up for the miles ahead. On average, it takes us about 12hrs from Calais to Cannes, including regular stops, if you wanted to stop overnight, we’ve used the little Hiltons which were great. One year we stopped at Disneyland Paris for a few days on the way back and it was great, hardle off-route at all and a fun way to extend the holiday.
The cost is pretty low now and it’s just the sensible thing to do. We usually use American Express Travel Insurance or the AA Travel Insurance or even good old Tesco.
You or the Children may want a new ipod or to download some new itunes, or maybe some new games for the invaluable PSP.
