Given the wide range of travel options, our standard package prices do not include travel. The principle options are as follows:
Languedoc is located around 9 hours’ drive from Calais, and therefore this travel method would be most suitable for long trips of a week or more that combine other regions, such as Champagne, the Loire Valley, Bordeaux or Burgundy. Please contact us for crossing prices with Eurotunnel or P&O Ferries. If you would prefer to travel from an alternative UK port, we can often arrange this. Please contact us to discuss your preferred route and applicable supplement.
Carcassonne is around 7 ½ hours from Paris by train and overnight trains operate between these destinations. Grape Escapes can book your Eurostar and TGV travel for you if you wish and the definitive cost of your Eurostar travel can be confirmed 120 days before you travel, when the tickets are released.
