Forget about stressing about the Eurostar, getting tired driving through the night or getting lost following French roads. The beauty of the Flores Carp Experience is that you do not have to worry about anything – from start to finish, we’ve got you sorted.
Please see our minibus collect points and approximate times below. Our driver will confirm exact times nearer the time. Special requests may be available – surcharges may apply – contact us privately to discuss.

As mentioned above, arrival in Portsmouth will be around 19:30, when all final luggage is loaded into the minibus if needed, and your holiday officially begins! Dinner is available in The Ship & Castle Pub (at your own cost) before boarding the ferry at 23:00 (approximate departure time).
We also have pre-arranged parking at The Ship & Castle Pub (£50 per week, paid directly to the pub upon arrival).
All holidays include a cabin on the outward journey. There are 4 birth cabins, and each room has a shower. The crossing is overnight, and you dock in Caen at approximately 6:00. Breakfast is available on the ferry but is not included in the booking and will be at your own cost. After breakfast, you’ll be ready to start a 2-hour drive through France to the lake! Normal arrival to Flores is around 9:00, and here you will be greeted by the Flores Bailiffs, Dan & Julie.
