P&O Ferries User Review

When you think of ferry crossings you immediately think of P&O. We have traveled with P&O on their Dover to Calais ferry crossing four times now as my husband is a property developer and we go to Calais to stock up on cheap materials.

Although it’s a pretty fast crossing we always enjoy it as there are loads of things to do on board. There are a few restaurants, a snack / bar type diner and plenty of bars to down a couple of Kronenberg and help get in to the French spirit!

We’ve also used the Eurotunnel Le Shuttle train crossing a few times but it’s not the same kind of atmosphere you get with P&O where the crossing itself is part of the holiday and each time is a different mini adventure. For example, the last time we went we saw a pod of dolphins which was a real bonus. My husband Mike was on the top deck, which gives a great view as you’re about 100 feet up and he shouted down to us that he’d seen a dorsal fin and joked that it was jaws! We ran up to the deck and soon there were about thirty dolphins all swimming along the side of the ferry. So if you’re looking for a good way to see dolphins on the cheap and not have to pay through the nose for special tours, this is as great way of seeing them.

What I didn’t realise but have since found out is that P&O often have their own wildlife officer on board who shouts out on the tannoy if whales or dolphins are spotted surfacing. Even people who have no interest in wildlife would suddenly find themselves racing to the side of the boat to get a look. Another bonus of sailing with P&O – we’d highly recommend them.

Bubbly Bonnieux

If you are travelling in Provence, then Bonnieux is certainly worth taking a detour for. The village is extremely attractive as it sprawls down a hillside, and though it has not been developed for tourism like many of the other villages in the region, it is well worth a visit. The village’s main road cuts through the centre of it and effectively disectsBonnieux into two parts. Most of the shops and restaurants sit in the lower part of the village whilst the winding alleys can be found in the upper part as they lead you to the church that stands at the very top of the hill.


Beautiful Beaulieu-sur-Mer

If you want a lovely little holiday you should visit the small resort town which sits on the French Riviera called Beaulieu-sur-Mer. The main attraction of this village for visitors is without question the seaside. We cannot deny that Beaulieu-sur-Mer does not possess the immediate charm of some of the other towns and villages that are close by because it does not have the same kind of history nor cluster of seafood restaurants, but we still recommend that you do pay the village a visit because of its lovely promenade.


Guide To Les Baux-de-Provence

Les Baux-de-Provence is a small village that is located about a 20-minute drive South of Avignon in Provence. The village lies within the Regional National Park of the Alpilles and it is believed to be France’s most visited village. An estimated 2 million people come to visit every year and it should come as no surprise that it is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France.
