DRIVING DIRECTIONS TO OUR NEW DEPOT

If you are using a GPS and it does not recognise our address, try programming it to take you to the village of Véron (postcode 89510) and then follow the instructions below.

Our depot is in the village of Véron (postcode 89510), 7kms south of the major town of Sens. The depot is very easy to find from any direction and here are the detailed directions once you get to Véron.

From the roundabout on the D606 trunk road at Véron (previously known as the N6) take Avenue de la Gare towards the village centre. Take the 3rd turning on the left (opposite the Pharmacy/Chemist with the Cemetery on your left) into Promenade de l’Ouest. Our depot is 150m on the left.

Our Recommended Route from the Ferry Ports and Channel Tunnel Terminal at Calais

If you are coming from the UK and crossing the English Channel by Ferry or via the Channel Tunnel, we recommend that you avoid the obvious route that takes you via Paris. The alternative route via Reims and Troyes is slightly longer but unless you are passing Paris before 05:30 in the morning or after 21:00 at night, it is generally faster and rarely subject to traffic jams. Here are the detailed instructions for the route via Reims and Troyes:


From Calais take A26 to Reims and Troyes (there is a short section of the motorway around Reims where it is called the A4 but you stay on the same motorway and it quickly reverts to the A26!).

At Troyes, leave A26 taking A5 west, signposted Paris/Orleans/Sens/Auxerre

Leave A5 taking A19 west, signposted Sens/Provins/Orlelans

Leave A19 at junction 1 (Sens) and then take the D606 (previously known as the N6) towards Auxerre.

Continue on the D606 bypassing the town of Sens and go through the village of Rosoy. About 7kms from Sens, turn off the D606 at the major roundabout into Véron, taking Avenue de la Gare towards the village centre. Take the 3rd turning on the left (opposite the Pharmacy/Chemist with the Cemetery on your left) into Promenade de l’Ouest. Our depot is 150m on the left.

GETTING TO OUR DEPOT FROM PARIS OR THE AIRPORTS BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Trains depart for Sens from two Paris train stations. The fast train (55 mins) departs from Paris Gare de Bercy and the alternative departs from Paris Gare de Lyon (and takes around 90 mins).

We offer a transfer service from Sens station or any other location within 10kms of our depot for €20 each way (per hire party), payable locally (this will be free of charge if it was included in your package when we sent you a quotation or for motorhome hires of over €2500 in value). The transfer between Sens train station and our depot usually takes 10-15 minutes.

The train information below is valid until July 2016 (subject to works on the line, which are scheduled in 2016). Please verify the train times for your actual day of travel on the SNCF website (in English): http://en.voyages-sncf.com/en/

LOCAL HOTELS

It’s a great idea to spend a relaxing night in a local hotel prior to collecting your motorhome the next day. We strongly recommend a night in a hotel between arriving in France and coming to collect your motorhome. With the general level of stress and inevitable delays involved in international travel, heading for a hotel with no real deadline is a much more sane start to a motorhome trip than trying to make it straight to the depot and pick up a large, unfamiliar vehicle!

Staying in Sens is a good deal better value than staying in Paris and being so close to our depot it offers a very leisurely start to your trip. Sens itself is a pretty city with a famous Cathedral and many restaurants and shops to occupy you for your short stay.

There are literally hundreds of hotels in the area around Sens but rather than overface you with a vast list, we thought we’d just list the ones that are actually in the town of Sens for those arriving by train/hire car and the ones nearest our depot for those arriving by car:  All the hotels below are within a 15 minute drive of our depot.

PLACES TO STAY NEARBY

There are plenty of places to stay close to our depot and many of our clients choose to spend their first and last nights at a local campsite or overnight halt.
