Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Brittany Ferry prices starting to hot up

Despite P&O pulling out of the Portsmouth/Le Havre route last year there still seems to be quite a lot of competition over prices.

Today I received an email from Brittany Ferries announcing £55 return mid-week sailings on the Poole/Cherbourg route from now to April for stays of up to 5 days. The prices rise a little more for weekend journeys or longer durations but are still only £119 for a weekend to weekend return in May.

Cherbourg is about 4 hours drive from our Gite, on motorway for all but the last 30 miles, and unlike other parts of France there are no motorways tolls on this route.

Other than Easter and the half-term school holiday we've still got availability through to May so perhaps someone will take advantage of these fares and stay with us ?
