My family and I had our first Holiday if France this year and are looking to go again next year. By far the cheapest ferry crossing with our car was to Calais, however we stayed near Dinard and so had a 5 hour road journey (on top of the 5 hours it took us to get to Dover from manchester).
The countryside and scenery where we stayed was fantastic bu were wondwring if any one new of areas nearer to Calais (maybe 2-3 hrs drive) that would equal the beauty of Brittany.
Idealy a nearby beach would be good, but as we will have our car with us we could make a beach trip a "day out" and travel maybe an hour for where we choose to stay.
We prefer rural locations.
Thanks in advance for your help
