The May half term break is just around the corner. Now families looking for their next get-away can do it without breaking the bank thanks to Brittany Ferrries’ offer of four nights chalet-camping in France.
Starting from just £73 per person – £289 for a party of four – the break includes a daytime return sailing to France for a car and four people. Four nights of chalet camping awaits, with a menu of 13 carefully selected resorts in Brittany and the Western Loire on offer. For a little more luxury, either en route or on the return, there’s also a 15% discount for cabins on board.
“It costs up to £200 to keep a family of four entertained for a day at some of the UK’s most popular tourist attractions,” commented Christiane Barker, general manager of holidays at Brittany Ferries. “So why not pay just a little bit more to keep them entertained for four? What could be more exciting than getting on a cruise ferry, sailing to a foreign country, then spending four nights at a complex with swimming pools, play areas and restaurants. Plus, there aren’t any queues!”
For an additional £10 per person, Brittany Ferries presents the option to stay away for five nights. For a total price of £353, holiday makers can choose to sail overnight sleeping in a 4-berth en-suite cabin, returning to the UK on either a morning or afternoon sailing.

About Brittany Ferries
Brittany Ferries is a passenger car and freight service operating from eleven ports, linking four countries: UK – France, UK – Spain and Ireland – France. The company was set up by a collective of French farmers as a freight-only operator, running from Roscoff in Brittany to Plymouth with the first crossing taking place on 1 January 1973, the date the United Kingdom joined the EEC (forerunner to the EU).
The aim then was to bring French agricultural products to a wider British market. However, the service quickly developed into an operation carrying hundreds of thousands of British tourists, eager to experience the delights of Brittany and Normandy. Today Brittany Ferries is the market leader on the Western Channel for passengers and for freight. It is also a leading supplier of ferry-inclusive motoring holidays to France and Spain.
