I’ll keep this page updated as we get more information, but please find below the latest state of play on our 2019 visit to Perros.
The dates are 2nd-6th/7th May.
We plan to travel to Roscoff on the 10.45pm ferry on Thursday 2nd May, arriving into Roscoff the next morning. We are having to revise our return journey as Brittany Ferries have changed the times of some passenger sailings to accommodate cargo transport post Brexit. The return is likely to be overnight on Monday 6th, or perhaps the afternoon sailing on Tuesday 7th.
Transport, in the form of a coach, will be provided from Teignmouth to Plymouth, and we will be met by another coach for onward transport to Perros. On the way home, the reverse applies. If we leave Perros in the morning of 7th, we will be able to spend a few hours at a nearby town, which has a very large hyper market, where some members load up with ‘supplies’ before boarding our ferry home. If we catch the overnight ferry on 6th we won’t be able to make that stop for shopping.
If you’ve never been before, then all you need to know is that you’ll be staying with a family in Perros, and our experience is that you’ll be treated like Royalty! ‘Your’ French family will also provide transport for you during your three days in France, driving you to the various events that are laid on, and will keep you well fed and watered.
This is a really cost effective way of visiting France, as all you have to pay for is the ferry crossing itself, and a small contribution towards the events program in France. At the moment we think these costs are likely to be in the region of £150 per person. The exact cost will depend on your choice of accommodation for the night crossing, with choices ranging from a simple lounge seat up to a four berth en-suite cabin with outside view. We are also unable to provide an exact cost for the coach transport at the moment as although we have booked the coaches; the cost per person will depend on how many people come on the coaches and how many choose to take their own car.
As mentioned at the start, this page will be updated as we get more information so please check back regularly.
