Travel and Accommodation Guide
TRAVEL
There are a number of different options for travelling to la Fontenelle. If you do come by
public transport, please note that there is NO public transport from major towns to la
Fontenelle itself - the only options are to hire a car or to book a taxi.
Please bear in mind that you will need transport whilst attending the choral week to
travel from your accommodation to the various rehearsal and concert venues.
Fares are normally announced up to three months in advance, so to take advantage of best
prices for tickets (and to have a chance of a sharing arrangement for car hire), it is
suggested that anyone interested should identify their interest before 30th April, and plan to
make a firm commitment within the following month as travel details become available.
By CAR
There a number of ferry options as well as the Eurotunnel. The table below lists the possible
routes and distances to la Fontenelle.

Charges for EUROTUNNEL are one way and vary depending on the time of day or night. The
charge is per car with no limit on the number of passengers. Petrol and diesel are cheaper
than in UK. You would also need to factor in costs of motorway tolls for the journey.
By RAIL
The EUROSTAR service from London St Pancras provides an excellent link to France. TGV
high speed services and the changeover can be in Paris (requiring change of station) or more
simply in Lille (but at fewer times during the day). In both cases TGV services go to Rennes
and on to Dol and St Malo. Although the latter two are closer to la Fontenelle, it takes longer
to get there and arrangements still have to be made for the onward journey to La Fontenelle
itself. Again, the options are to hire a car or to book a taxi.
