Driving from the UK
All the major channel ferry companies operate crossings from England to France from and to various destinations. You can even use the Euro tunnel.
Finding a crossing that suits you should be relatively easy, but always try to book early to avoid disappointment. You will find travelling by road easier in France than in the UK. The roads are generally a lot less congested and the drivers a lot politer.
If you want to stop off on the way down, book in advance. France has an abundance of cheap hotels aimed at those who just wish to stop, nap and go. Although impersonal (for example, with the Formula 1 and ETAP hotels, you normally check-in using a cashpoint situated outside the front door!), they are cheap, clean and situated on all the main routes.
