    Hi Carol, it's not the cheapest option at 285 including cabin and breakfast but it avoids driving to either Dover or Portsmouth. We sail at 18.30 and arrive at 08.45 so it'll be lunch in Reims I reckon

    Winter sun

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to travel south for the winter in Feb , either Portugal or Spain.
    I'll be on my own so looking for a place where I can't chill out, get fit and detox.

    Can anyone recommend anywhere....?

    Also I've never driven that distance before, what can I expect the drive to be like....I was thinking of taking my time getting down there

Happy days.

    Hi folks, sounds great apart from the Bolnuevo bit....we found the site a bit "sardine city" ... the nearby restaurant/bars a bit naff....prom walks ok spose but not much there ? However, all horses n all that...what do others think?

    Not quite fully fledged but having a scout around for next three weeks

    We are sailing to Bilbao then on to Salamanca, Seville, Cordoba, Granada, Sierra Nevada, Toledo, back to Bilbao and all points in between over the next three weeks with an eye to joining the Spanish Snowbirds later in our retirement and would love to meet some new friends along the way. Anyone planning to be in those parts of Spain over the next three weeks? regards, Chris & Sharon

    This is what I did last year.

    I phoned around April to enquire about a December crossing. I was advised that the Winter sailings weren't yet confirmed, but the timetable would be released about 1st July (if I recall correctly).

    I was offered the option to pre-book which I chose to do. All that Brittany wanted was my preferred route and date and they would book as close to my requirements as possible once the timetable was confirmed. In due course I received an email with the booking details and confirmation of the booking deposit having been paid.

    It worked well ...

    Booked about six weeks ago? Not very long after the bookings opened. This is why I am on the two night crossing as all the one night crossings were fully booked.
    Thanks alcam thanked for this post

    Brilliant timing

    What fab timing, today I logged in to get advice on travelling to Spain with two dogs. I am very interested in hearing about people's experiences of driving through France on toll free roads,
    attitudes to dogs in France and Spain
    Availability of drinking water
    suggested itineraries for a three month trip starting in November
    I have purchased a Spanish gas cyclinder and have been told I need to buy a pigtail, I don't know why or where to buy it, any ideas?
    I'd love to hear your advice, thanks,Trishie
