    I've done this route but never in one hit ..

    According to Google maps it is 485 mls with a driving time of 7hrs 20 mins.. add in a few comfort breaks , say a total of 9 - 10 hrs

    Why the rush.. ? That's a long slog in a motrohome, especially with the constant "RV there yet" in the back ground :shout:

    I would suggest one overnight stop at Honfleur Aire , that's roughly half way..

    We did Guingamp (North Brittany) to Calais a few weeks ago. It took about 6 hours stopping for fuel once, and we didn't hang about.

    I'd say Quimper would be at least another hour on top.

    Not our preferred way to travel, but in that instance, it was necessary.

    Full Time on the road
    Being restricted to 90kph on the peage due to size and towing a car on a trailer, we did it in two stages Vannes to Ouisreham on Sunday with no problems. Ouistreham to Boulogne was more of a problem with more commercial traffic on the road on Monday. It took us 7 weeks going the other way on N and D roads.

    You do not say what you are travelling in or if you are towing a trailer or what day you intend to travel. All can influence the time it takes.
