Travel

La Fontenelle is just off the D155 road in Ille-et-Vilaine, Brittany, between Dol-de-Bretagne and Antrain. 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 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 30 April 2016 and plan to make a firm commitment within the following month as travel details become available.

By CAR

There are many ferry options and Eurotunnel to choose from. The closest port is St Malo which is 53km from la Fontenelle.

By RAIL

The EUROSTAR service from London 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. The options are to hire a car or to book a taxi.

By AIR

Services run from Southampton, Stansted or East Midlands airports with Ryanair or Flybe. Further arrangements would need to be made for the onward journey – either by hiring a car or by taxi.
