Having driven to and from Calais many times using different routes, we have found the following route avoiding the nightmare of Paris to replica watches be the best.

The route is mainly motorway/dual carriageway apart from a small section between Rouen and Orleans. This section is in the process of being upgraded to dual carriageway but in August 2011 still had a few small intermittent sections of single carriageway.

Sat Nav users please be aware that using the lake as your final destination may take you through Paris. To avoid this you will need to program in Rouen, then Chartres, then Orleans to follow our route. Once at Orleans you can enter the lake details.
