Ferries to France

France has been one of the world’s most popular, if not the most popular tourist destination for many years.

One of the most diverse destinations you’ll come across, with its iconic monuments, stunningly beautiful cities, magnificent castles, idyllic countryside, glorious beaches and arguably some of the best restaurants and the finest wines you’re likely to experience, France really does have something for everyone.

Whether you’re heading to France for a relaxing beach holiday, city break, camping or outdoor holiday, wine tasting or something else entirely, travelling by ferry to France has never been easier, irrespective of your country or place of departure.

With thousands of miles of coastline and a relatively central position in Western Europe, the UK and Ireland above, Spain to the south west, the islands of the Mediterranean and North African countries of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia below, it is no surprise that France is such a popular destination for the ferry traveller and so well served by Europe’s biggest ferry companies and the most modern ferries in operation.

The French ferry ports are well connected to the motorway network which makes France an ideal gateway for onward travel to other countries and islands across Europe.

France reviews

  • "Very good Service"

    I found the service to be very good. I did not use the catering facilities.

  • "Excellent"

    What a fabulous boat. Although full, the public areas were not crowded, apart from the sun deck and pool area. We cannot comment on the catering facilities as we had brought our own food on board, but the choice of three restaurants, including one for fine dining was excellent. The only downside to the trip was that although leaving pretty much on time we docked at Livorno an hour later than scheduled and, as we have a camper, we were about last to disembark - an extra wait of 45 minutes... We will certainly use Corsica Sardinia Ferries again!

  • "Practical Way to Access Italy"

    Ferries from Barcelona to Italy, Sardinia, Corsica give an opportunity to access more remote parts of Europe from UK without that long haul through France and/or Germany. These ferries represent very good value taking into account time saved, petrol saved and an overnight stop on board.

  • "Good but delayed crossings"

    Modern, well equipped ferries with good amenities on board. Unfortunate that no cabins were available for return - overnight cross with just a reclining seat was less enjoyable to end my holiday. Lots of people sleeping on floors and in the self-service restaurant! Crossings were delayed by circa 2 hours in both directions which was frustrating, especially on return as this reduced the time I had with friends in France. On board staff were helpful on both crossings and Toulon port was well signposted. Signposting for exact entry point to ferry port in Porto Torres was very poor and difficult even with help of check-in desk attendant's directions. Also unclear whether printed confirmation had to be exchanged for tickets prior to reaching main port gate (was required on return, but not on outward journey).
